she’s home…. she says she’s home, and she’s home.

December 9, 2009

Nearly kissed the ground at the airport, but thought better of it when I realized I’d have a struggle getting back up off the ground.  Don’t get me wrong, I had a glorious time.  I was just ready to get back to my own bed and all that!

Wrote that first part on December 5 — the night I got home.  Boy oh boy was I surprised at the weather.  For the last three days, I have awakened to sub-freezing weather in Sacramento.  What?  In Sacramento?  Yes, indeedie.  We have finally joined the ranks of the bitter cold.  I have always wanted to leave this town due to the extreme heat in the summertime.  Now I have to add the extreme cold (without snow and blasting icy temps of those of you further east.  I guess it’s Fiji or the Bahamas for me.  We’ll see.  The universe will prevail, as usual.

I learned a lot.  I gave a lot.  I got an amazing boost in my fabric life.  The preparation for, lead up to, and moments prior to the show were surreal and freaky.  I completed a huge project in red, blue, orange and purple (and a little pink).  I used found objects, beads and fabrics all purchased in Washington.  Rather than doing the ancestral-related project I had planned and had taken all the elements for, I was so in awe of the first view of the snow capped mountains, that I saw something that I had to start the evening I went to Sequim the first time — the day after I arrived in Washington.

The piece has more than one name.  100 hearts…… dragon breath……. dragon’s heart……… oh geez.  I can’t wait until Janet sees it.  She’s my #1 interpreter of my fabric pieces.

A few things:

my living room, as of today, is a wreck.  two suitcases along with two large boxes……… which finally arrived…… the contents are all over the place.  Have had zero time to unpack.  I’m not worried.  Saturday will be here soon.

the water where I was seemed so still.  Major realization is that I truly love the flow of a river rather than the ocean or a bay or a lake.  Hah!

I might need the heat of the sun during what everyone called “arthritis time of year” at this time.  I sat inside the little house in Sequim the one day the sun shon all day; sat by the window in the sun as long as I could.

I’m tired from the whole trip.  No, I’m tired from the preparation for the trip, the stress of travel and other things that I will go into within the next new days.

Right now, I’m still cold, even after two cups of hot tea and a bowl of veggie stew I made a couple of days ago.  My solution…. I’m going into my bedroom to get really warm under my wonderful comforter, then get up later when warm and put away a few items so that on Saturday there will be 3 items less to put away!
