Q u i e t

Yesterday after teaching, then after having my teeth cleaned and before getting a haircut, and later getting a raging migraine that would send me to bed at 7pm, I s a t, q u i e t l y and wrote in my jotter:

savoring a cup of green tea
the sky greys
yellow leaf cartwheels across the concrete.
Inside by the shop window
no sound from the cars passing by outside
or the construction across the street.
I simply relish a few moments to sit
and sip
to read and write
and sneak a few chocolate peanuts.

I really enjoyed reading Tara's home tour.

Don't miss Martha's stunning U N collection, launching today at 1 pm cst! There's so much beauty there. So much.

Also today, Rachel and I offer a sneak peek of our inspiration for the next collection at the Cup & Saucer blog.

Tomorrow, a little arrangement from me, selected from the box of ephemera I found in storage.
