I have been staring at my computer screen looking for a  Halloween picture to use as my Facebook profile photo  (Lord, the days I have wasted in front of Facebook…sigh) and came across this photo from less than a year ago. What a difference a year can make.

I can’t believe a year ago I was just installing the windows and doors, which means I had none of my art supplies in my studio yet and wasn’t even using the space. It also helped me to notice that this is the time of year when I really get stuff done….scurrying around like a squirrel quick before the cold winter days settle in. So, why is it is that I don’t feel that way this year? Any minute now, right? I’m reaaaady.
