Today turned out to be one of those days. The first day back from vacation and there was a lot of catching up to do at work, but it all went smoothly! This fall has been busy, happy, but seemed to be lacking a little bit of that inspiration that drives me to look at things and makes me want to create. Don't get me wrong, I have been productive, but just not quite feeling it.
The tide really turned when I was driving the kids home from school tonight. Like so many other's this fall, the sunset quickly put on a show, changing every second as it reached it's twilight crescendo. What was different about this one? I am not sure, the frosty and very windy air, that makes you quicken your step gave it a breathless feel. Giving me the warmth that winter brings to your soul as you rush in the door at home to ward off the cold. I snapped a number of shots and I was taken by each one.
Then I hurried into the house to put together the Norwex order that arrived from one of my shows. That done, went straight into making cookie dough for a cookie exchange that I am going to on Thursday. Each dough was decadent and outrageously good raw, I'll share more about them once they are cooked tomorrow! I then busied myself with a simple pasta sauce all made from garden items that we are storing...(aside, I have no idea why I decided to run a scene from American Horror through my head when I went into the root cellar tonight, but I sure beat feeted it out of there)! As dinner is simmering away, I sit with a glass of wine and plug in the camera to see if any of the shots look as good SOOC as they did through the view finder. I asked B to come over and check out the sunset from tonight. His first comment was wow, so striped and with the deep blue, that looks like the flag. What do you think??
I think I am getting my inspiration mojo back!
