Let's talk

I know, it's been awhile.
Life does that to a person, it just pops up and becomes something all on it's own that takes the days and the nights out of you.
My mother fell.
She is in her 80's and a broken bone is a broken bone.
So we went.
She is fine and recovering.
Time will tell.
Meanwhile it was back to school and pot making time.

And, the beauty of fall is all around us.
The drive to school and back is breath taking.
I take a route in the morning that winds through the back roads and as I round the curves and climb the foot hills there are some fabulous trees full of color.
The reds are here.
I love all the colors, but the reds just break my heart with their scream of color.
Every year we say, this is the best fall ever, well, maybe it is.
I'll check back in later.

Glad your mom is ok, sorry about the fall. the only thing about the leaves here is we have to keep our driveway clear as it's steep and can be slippery if it gets wet and they keep falling and falling, even pine needles. Gary has his work cut out for him blowing all the leaves.

Sorry about your Mom, glad she is healing. This aging parent thing is hard.

Good luck to Mom. Good luck to you and Mark getting ready for Seagrove to be flooded with pottery lovers in a couple of weeks.

I've never made it to Seagrove but I visited cousins in Durham last weekend. Beautiful driving through the northwest hills and mountains on the way there and back to Ohio.
Good luck to your mom.

It's beeb quite a year of change and unexpected events hasn't it? I think a drive through the country in NC is the best therapy/ medicne a person could find. Enjoy those drives, I sort of envy you there. Lunch sooooon!

I’m glad to read that your mom is getting better. My mom is 80 now and I dread those kinds of phone calls.
