Unplanned Days and Surprises

I love getting up with no plans and just waiting to see what is going to happen. Not much during the day - picked up the mail and with it photos of my friends, Vandy and Sue's disaster in Galveston.........disturbing. In addition, magazines - my eclectic taste covers Texas Monthly, Country Living, Fortune Small Business, Kovel's Antique Pricing Newsletter and the piece de resistance, Slotin Auction's catalog on Outsider Art auction in November. A myriad of possibilities of things that interest me. So, up on the roof, reading material in hand, warm sunshine and the next thing I knew, a siesta on the chaise on the roof with the breeze, birds and butterflies - perfection.

Then tonight a call from Anado Mc Lauchlin, the fabulous artist who I bought the wonderful assemblage from recently. He called to tell me about a fantastic article on his work, his and his partner Richard's home AND with a great slide show. All in the New York Times! The article was written by Joyce Wadler. The article is about "Color Chaos" an apt title. I found it not by trying to find it on the NY Times site, but by putting Joyce Wadler in Google's Search Engine where she came up as "Joyce Wadler New York Times" and then clicking on the article. If you're interested, go explore.

So, that's MY day in San Miguel where, oh by the way, the day started out at 38 degrees and ended up at 80 degrees! What was your day like?

Hmmm. I got up and went to work -- and worked. Came home -- and worked on work I did not get done while I was at work.

It was 38 degrees! Jeez, I don´t think it´s hit the 40s here yet. I don´t think that´s normal for SMA in late October.

I'm sorry Steve, I wasn't trying to rub it in......the work issue!

And, Michael, we had 35 earlier in October! NONE of this is normal.
Ah, but I woke up this morning and it was 50 and another fab day on the roof terrace chaise........
Michael, you made me laugh out loud at your second comment on Steve's blog yesterday!
