Oh gosh he makes me smile...let's have another picture of him...
here is a picture of my grandson Jacob as Jac the Night before Christmas...I think he is the handsomest "ugly" guy going....He got 6th place in his high school for his costume.

Had a great drive in to London today. The weather was not horrible like they were saying but beautiful and bright and a fantastic day for a drive on the highway. I love driving on the highway when you can go along at a good pace (not saying what pace) but a good one, with the music going and feeling free as the wind...
So I dropped off my order and called a girlfriend and met for coffee and then drove back to Mississauga.
The wind was picking up by the time I got home but it was still a beautiful day and I enjoyed it so much.....
Here is one of my favourite fall poems to share with you. Enjoy and have a wonderful fullfilling day!!

October's Party

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came.
The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples
and leaves of every name.

The sunshine spread a carpet,
and everything was grand.
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow
The Oaks in crimson dressed.
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best.

All balanced to their partners,
And gairly fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New falled from the sky.

Then in the rustic hollow
At hide-and-seek they played;
the party closed at sundown
And everybody stayed.

Professor Wind played louder,
They flew along the ground.
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around".

George Cooper "October's Party"
Well I am going to be brave and travel in to London Ontario from Mississauga this morning to deliver some
bisque for an artist to work on. I am saying "brave" because we are supposed to have tornado winds coming our way by the early afternoon....I will get in and get back before I end up "flying" home by car....

Good Morning like spring here again and I would be so happy if it stayed this way all winter..sigh..
Well I am going to post a couple matchboxes I did for a swap on one of my lists....It was fun to do and we stuffed them with all kinds of goodies...mine have left the building so I figure they had enough time that I could post a picture...of course I have received mine already and they were wonderful and so full of neat things to play with. Our topic was that was an easy one to do...

I have been spending my day doing laundry, cleaning up my studio and then I decided to try to do some digital merging with some of my work...the time piece is from Graphics Fairy who is so generous with their "digital freebies."  The poem is by Tagore.  I thought hey were kind of nice to merge together. This will be a nice piece for a collage.
