Autumn









So, I've been unplugged for a while.  Been doing some housekeeping both literally and figuratively.  Letting go of a lot of stuff.  De-cluttering the house, changing my diet for the better, changing unhealthy habits, and re-evaluating my life in general.  I read more, spend much less time online, watch very little tv (what's worth watching anyway?) and am exercising a great deal more than I used to.  I have become very conscious of the passing of time and have resolved to spend it more wisely from now on.  Most people do this sort of thing in January, but autumn is always a time of deep renewal for me on so many levels.  After a long, hot Alabama summer which left me feeling tired and depleted, I am revived again.  We have practically lived outdoors the whole month of October, and I think that has a lot to do with my regeneration of health and spirit.  We walk everyday.  We walk for miles, and we have the most wonderful talks. heart to heart talks.  That's what inspired the little pocket pouch.  I needed a bag to carry my phone, house key, and pepper spray, and my workout pants don't have any pockets.  So, I made this little hipster pouch out of a pair of old jeans for the purpose. Other than gardening and homeschool stuff, it's the only creative thing I've done in months.  It felt really good to be making something again. After a long period of feeling 'stuck' creatively, I hope I am moving forward again.  Wish me luck  :)
