Wind or No Wind, Saturday Is Here!
Where did the wind come from? After a string of clear, still days, it took me a couple of minutes to identify the sound (please don’t tell me I’m imagining it), but peering out a dark window I could still see the stars. The sky is still clear. It’s just a windy morning. Okay.
Those dreams when you forgot to study for an exam? Neglected to learn your lines and the curtain is going up? Can’t find the room you’re supposed to teach in? Besides the wind, a dream of that kind woke me in the dark, but there’s no need to go into the silly details, because no failures of that kind are going to mar the bookstore event today. I’ll get all the furniture arranged, and the caterer and the wine will arrive in plenty of time, and everything will be fine. After all, the books came yesterday. Yes! The books arrived twenty-six or –seven hours ahead of the scheduled event, and that was a big relief. They look great, too.
So let the wind blow. The sun will shine, and it will be a beautiful day. These images, however, are from the last two quieter, calmer mornings, when the wind and I were taking life a lot easier (and as I was selecting them this morning, I couldn't stop thinking that Sharon will know exactly where each photograph was taken). I’m getting a lot of use out of my camera battery recharger this season, and you haven’t seen the half of it. There will also be bookstore pictures and book talk, along with all the "local color."
P.S. Before you go outdoors this morning, check this out. You can keep track of the Sleeping Bear's activities by e-mail. And does that little produce stand look familiar? (Susan, there's no prize for identifying it.)
