Two days in a row?

This is what happens when you're home. Usually, on Sunday, I get up and watch sewing shows on TV (Sewing With Nancy and something with Sue Hausman and Martha's Sewing Room.) I do this because, even though I'm not all that good at it, I dearly love to sew. The part of my office that is not dedicated to papers, pens, and unfinished manuscripts is dedicated to a sewing machine, a serger, and a sewing table. It is, as you might guess, a rather large and extremely messy room. I love it here. Oops, I forgot what I was telling...

After the sewing shows, I go to church. Ebenezer UMC--otherwise known as the little church on the corner--is right across the road and they know if I'm playing hookey. This means that sometimes I go to church for the wrong reasons, but I'm always glad I went anyway. I like to think the Lord is glad to see me there, too.

After church, I come home and whine the rest of the day because I have to go back to work on Monday. I know, I know, this makes no sense at all. I like my job, for heaven's sake. But that doesn't mean I want to do it.

However, I'm on sick leave right now, because of my foot. While I can't do my job--eight hours on my feet, smiling--I can do most everything else. The cool thing about that is that today--Sunday--I can do it without whining about having to go back to work tomorrow!

So have a good Monday. I may eventually even do this three days in a row!

September Song

I always think of September as a gentle time, when the colors are throttling up for October and nights are cool. A good time for most things. High school football and crispy apples and the delicious smells that are peculiar to autumn. The cornfields are emptying out and the air is...well, cleansing, I guess. I can't think of a better word.

I had foot surgery this month, so I'm on a long, meandering sick leave. I could work, yes, but I can't stand up for eight hours, which is what my job entails. I must admit, I like being home, working on my laptop before daylight and sitting on the front porch with the cats. I'm even enjoying some TV, which I never do, and watching old movies, which I always do.

Speaking of movies, Paul Newman passed away today. My condolences go out to his family. And to all of us. He was a loving and giving man.

The boyfriend and I spent a few days in Vermont early this month, getting some quality Pappaw and Nana time with Fionnegan, the youngest of our six grands, and his parents. We're planning an Ireland trip in 2009. I can't wait, but I'm scared too--I don't even have a passport!

Book of my month is COURTING MISS ADELAIDE, by Indiana's own Janet Dean. Janet writes with September gentleness and joy. This is her debut book, but it won't be her last!
