Creating a Recipe Scrapbook
November for me is the beginning of the “dark months.” The leaves are down, the daylight hours shorten, the cold sets in, and the Christmas frenzy begins.
Usually I curl up and hibernate as much as my work schedule allows, but this year I am trying to keep the depression at bay in a different way. I am going to focus my energy on creating rather than sleeping.
Leah Piken Kolidas hosts an art challenge, Art Every Day Month. This challenge is helping me move my focus from fearing winter into something positive.
Today I am taking a vacation day from work to recharge and be creative. I’m laying out the recipe scrapbook that will be my mom’s Christmas present. I decided to work outside for a little while to allow myself to feel the sun.
It is 44 degrees, and I’m in my light winter coat, but I am basking in the delicate rays of an autumn sun. It is enough to tide me over until we hit the “Indian Summer” that out weatherman is calling for in the next few days.
