i have finally tied down my topic for next month's challenge. it will become an e-course that i will start in January.
this is the view from my kitchen window of that magical circle of autumn-blooming crocus in the back yard. i just love being able to look out there and see the color. leaves are already starting to fall here, we've barely had time to enjoy the color!
(yes, that's me. messy hair, cheater glasses, frompy sweatshirt and all) i went to see one of David's friend's turkeys. the female has injured a leg somehow and barely gets around. i was hoping to be able to look at her, but this big oaf was getting in my way.
he really is quite handsome. i remember seeing him when he was just a small jerky that the chickens kept beating up!
so that blue and white fleshy stuff on the top of his head... yeah, it feels gross. won't ever pet that stuff again. go for the feathers next time.
that's his girlfriend in the background. she might also have an injured wing. i couldn't convince her to come out or get close enough for me to grab, and i really didn't want to climb in there to get her. i think what happened was this big idiot boyfriend of hers tried to ... (beep family friendly censor beep) ... and fell on her. her tail feathers were all broken and torn. unfortunately, her injuries are keeping her from getting to close to water and food, and so she was renamed Thanksgiving Dinner.
this is my potato in a jar that i was growing in the kitchen window just because. it is now growing baby potatoes! i guess i will get out this weekend and plant it in the middle of the garden. it will be a surprise to the next tenants if it survives the winter.
where i write during the day. my day planner opened to the month to keep me on track. feathers for inspiration in a Glühwein Christmas mug i brought back from Hungary in 2009.
when we move, i really want to get a larger work space so i can have all my crafts in one room with my writing. i have a big comfy chair that i want to start writing in, but i've been in the process of purging clutter and excess clothing, which unfortunately has moved some of the clutter into the big chair while i sort things out.
yes, i said that four-lettered "m" word. i am holding firm to the thought, prayer, and desire to be gone from here by the end of October. i interviewed yesterday for what i feel would be a dream job for me ... mentoring troubled young adults and helping them find career choices that fit. and they got less than a foot of snow last winter! that honestly has been one of my first questions at the end of the interview process. how much snow do you get?
