December 2

A morning of baking bread and making soup allayed the greyness outside my window. Colder temperatures had seeped in swallowing the world with an encompassing grey.  But the shaping of the loaves and the simmering of a soup on the stove created immeasurable soothingness for any soul.

 The "violin" school" that meets at my house every Tuesday afternoon commenced with a group lesson to practice for an upcoming Christmas program to be held at the nursing home. Beautiful music chased away any remaining specks of grey that thought they might still have a place to hide.

December 1

An unseasonably warm day that rendered some cutting back of my mums and daisies.

Nutcracker costumes dot my home since I have in the past month:
                               sewn a Chinese costume,
                                made Russian hats,
                                 created skirts for angel costumes,
                                 affixed a pocket for the inside of Drosselmeyer's jacket,
                            and worked on the fittings of two tutus, Spanish and Flowers.



They will be delivered to the dance studio this evening, back where they belong.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
