Rain and Homemade Soup

Ahhhh, finally bound for Lopez again this morning!!  I have packed beading projects, the crocheted table cloth I am working on, materials to weave a commissioned wall piece, and most of the research materials I have to date to work on two proposed books  (one on untangling the math of weaving, and one on single lashed bound weaves) and my new books on how to finish driftwood.  For the books-in-progress, I am simply hoping to clarify my notes and make an outline of how to proceed on each.  If I get more written, I'll be delighted.  Of course I also have my notebook/journal, and drawing accoutrements if I feel the need to sketch.

Bailey has been sitting by his carrier, fully expecting to join me.  Well, at least not wanting to be left behind.  I'm sure he won't graciously enter the carrier on his own, but it's pretty clear (to me, anyway) that he is ready to go.  Silly cat.  Of course, after leaving him for the 5 days when we were in Oregon - yes, someone came in to feed him!- and then again while I was in Hillsboro and then the Bead Retreat, he really won't let me out of his sight.

This will be my first trip to the island in rainy weather.  But my excitement and anticipation are not at all dampened.  I'm looking forward to having a pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove, maybe make some homemade bread, and nestling in for a productive 5 days or so of work.

Now to find my rain slicker....

Dear Sally,
What an inspiration you are. I have had to shelve afew projects while I undertake teacher training, which I hope to combine with my coaching. But 18th november, I set to work on the presentation of my lifecoaching book - it's almost done!!! Wishing you always, all the best in health and happiness. Sandra
