Abundance is........

Abundance is having the time to play with some paints and paper
Abundance is receiving a box of fabulous trims, laces, and flowers in the mail (thanks to Prima)
Abundance is cutting strippons from a vintage chiffon scarf to use as a ribbon yarn in my Autumn wrap
 Abundance is a free Saturday at the McKee Botanic Gardens and my camera
Abundance is a sunlit and dappled path into the gardens
Abundance is Birds of Paradise in all their flaming glory
And Abundance is finding a truly inspiring book at the Used Book Depot and also getting out my autumn bowls with their messages of Abundance, Blessings, Plenty, and Harvest

Abundance is starting a new portrait painting class on Tuesday
discovering an Agatha Christie Miss Marple mystery that I have never read
finding a French wine on deep discount at the liquor and buying several cases
relishing the pears and apples that are in the markets right now
planting tomato plants for the fall growing season here
finishing a new quilt top - all ready to be quilted
discovering a new (to me) violinist whose music both excites and calms me
really getting into yoga and feeling such peaceful energy and no arthritis pain

Hope your Sunday is filled with joy and abundance - I have already done my yoga routine, and hope to watch football and the Dover race on television while knitting like a mad woman (I have a shawl that has to be finished by Thursday for a contest). No scrapping this past week but there will be several new things to be shown once October arrives.

Chris

Your life is certainly abundant & full of many blessings! So great that yoga is keeping your arthritis under control. Exercise helps SO MANY things! And what a perfect prize for you from Prima! I'm sure you'll make many amazing projects with all that!
