day is done

...gone the sun,
from the hills,
from the plain,
all is well,
time to rest,
god is nigh...

i sit down to blog this evening as the thin dusk thickens outside my window. a red line gleams through the bare branches of the black trees and in the time it takes me to type this sentence, snuffs out.

i've gotten a lot done so far this week - scheduled appointments, had a hair cut, took care of baby jake, cooked and cleaned and put the first coat of paint on the hallway. among other things, i made time for soul collage work, for taking measurements for the new kitchen curtains, and attended book group last night. the laundry's caught up, there's fresh flowers in the vases.

i checked the dow - more red...even Beloved's looking more world-weary these days. i think i'll bake a chocolate cake tonight, and maybe some pear tea bread. times like these call for some serious nesting, i think.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

Serious nesting sounds good. Cold weather makes it much easier to stay inside and putter with projects. What is a soul collage ?

I was contemplating some serious nesting time today ... and realize I have to wait until after T-day. So, wait I will!

i have had the urge to do nothing but nest, I figured it was something in the Universe influencing that.
