There’s just been so much juggling recently. It’s easy to let a few things fall to the floor. For the first time in at least twelve years, I dropped the ball on my First Day of Fall tradition.
I didn’t make the pumpkin bread and pass it out to friends or teachers. I didn’t rotate out the cherries-and-lemonade napkins in favor of the leaves-and-pumpkins napkins. I didn’t make the one or two subtle changes to my living room decor that I usually make. It looked decidedly still like summer around here until roughly yesterday.
Now, though, I am happy to say that there is a bright splash of orange in my living room, seasonal napkins in the basket, and a month’s supply of pumpkin muffins in the freezer. By the way, if you’re making my recipe, I should tell you that I substituted more than half of the all-purpose flour with white whole wheat flour, and I can’t even taste the difference. Hooray for healthy changes that don’t mess with flavor!
In terms of some of those other balls I’ve been juggling, you might find a nugget of interest:
- The Morning Coffee series is moving to a less frequent schedule. Weekly was difficult. I’m going to shoot for twice a month now, and I have a very nifty interview lined up for next Monday, so stay tuned!
- This month’s PolyPubs mailing will be going out today. You can sign up to have it delivered to your inbox, or you can just visit the website here, for the latest news in polymer clay publications.
- My work is going to be available in a new jewelry store here in Stirling. If you’re local, drop by during the Stirling Street Fair on Sunday to check it out.
- I mentioned ornaments in my previous post, and as much as I hate to draw out the suspense, it’ll have to wait just a bit longer. I haven’t had a single moment at the clay table. What with all of those balls whizzing over my head and all…
Ok, now I’m off to accomplish something! Or take a nap. Whatever 😉
