Remind me that I Have The Power

I Have the Power!

I made homemade biscuits last night to go with a fresh kale and bean soup. Good way to ring in the Fall weather. Just a tad cooler here and the poplars are juuuust beginning to turn that beautiful golden yellow. I took this picture from my backporch in mid November last year. It won't be long.

I'm licking honey from my chin as I type. Finishing off the next to the last biscuit. Hey, I can multitask with the best of them!
Multitasking with a husband who is suddenly, after a lifetime, always home, is another thing. YES, LET THE WHINING BEGIN! AGAIN!
You should know by now, this is how I problem solve. Whine....process....regroup....start NEW!
I LOVE this man I call JOe. But as another fellow artist once told me of her experience trying to create with a husband in the house...."the air just feels different. He doesn't even have to be in the same room."
I'm gettin' there! It gets easier and better everyday. Susan is right. It takes time. And I've got time.

Other News: "Art After Dark" was great fun. Here I am waiting to be fed. The City of Locust Grove provided wine and shopkeepers provided the goodies.

Great turn out!
Especially nice to get person to person feedback and see what people gravitated to.
People love the Big Biddies and this makes me happy.


Tomorrow I'm off to St. Marys. Fall gardening and housework, but I'll be taking the paints and brushes. I have a few orders to fill and a few new ideas to try. I'm looking forward to it.
I've got to go get that last biscuit before Joe does. I'll catch up with you soon. Some fresh apple cider would be good with that biscuit. Good Grief! My body must be preparing for hibernation.
I'm hungry.
Love and all good things,
aka Joe's stove operator

Biscuits sound good. Any good with peanut butter??? Need to get Joe to do a guest post on your blog. Let's see what HE thinks about the retirement gig! Safe trip to St Marys - DE

oh, mama! i hear you loud and clear about the man in the house. the air is definitely different, and concentration is weak. i can't get a thing done if greg is around. he always laughs when i say that. i swear he thinks i do nothing all day, cuz that's all i amount to when he's here. heehee :)

Now I'm hungry... So glad to read a new post here. Retirement is a work in progress... bondaries. Us creative types have to have our time.
The art show looks like a huge success. more food... gotta go find food...

Too funny! Does your husband read your blog? I think we need to hear his side;)
Nice to have you back and good luck getting that biscuit!

Liz said...

You will always have the Power, Ronnie! Of that, there can be no doubt! xx

That's me above, Ronnie!

Lille Diane said...

Mmmmmmmm..... Now I want a biscuit, and honey dripping down my chin. Yes, that would be divine. What is it about fall that makes me want to bake...OK and eat? Yep we must want to hibernate and chub it up before so we can sleep in 12 hour cycles. LOL When they change the time back I will want to be in bed by 6:00pm. sigh...
PS I love my alone time.... I'll send you some good ju-ju vibes bout that. wink-wink

I believe in whining . I believe in throwing it all up and then having a good laugh ....... ha ..... ha

Ronnie said...

Hey! Joe knows nothing of this blog. If anybody spills the beans I'm calling the hit squad! ;)
Dave, peanut butter on biscuits is blasphemy.
Thanks for the commiserating everybody. Sandy, I've missed you.
