I hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! We spent ours in the mountains outside Asheville, North Carolina, where my family has rented a house just about every year since 2004. We stopped going when Dad couldn’t make the trip anymore, but after he and Mom died, my brother and I started up the tradition again. Hot tub with a view, hikes in the forest, weather of all kinds, and reading by the fireplace … I look forward to this trip all year. John was even able to come for a couple days :-)
November brought a tiny trip to New York, the start of a writing class, and the final rehearsal for my chamber choir's December concert, which is coming up next week. More photographs and bits of news in my Life Latelyblog post . December will find me getting work ready for my Velvet Winter exhibit at the Meadowlark in Dayton and prepping for my bookbinding class at CCAD. There's still time to sign up!
Today I'm simmering up a big pot of soup stock with leftover turkey, and I think we might get our Christmas tree too.
Cheers for now!
The Magpie Consort
