We awakened to a cool and windy day. I think there is a chance I am going into hibernation, because I slept for over nine hours last night!!! Sheesh. Cold weather just does that to me, I guess. Also, I think having my husband home helps. I sleep better when he's home.
Little hints that colder weather is coming appear. The leaves of the cat's claw acacia (acacia greggii) are just beginning to turn yellow. I am developing a fondness for this desert shrub, now that I have forgiven it for its mean thorns.
I have been in the studio a little bit. Not as much as I would like, but I am making progress. Hopefully, in a few more days I will have something to show you. I have a busy week, as I have been called for jury duty. I have never served as a juror, and I have no idea what to expect. My husband is also planning a short overnight to Las Vegas, which I hope to accompany him on. (jury duty permitting) I am planning to squeeze in some studio time when I can.
A short note about the photos in my previous post. They are not flowers, but the bracts leftover after the seeds of a flower had been dispersed . I am not sure which flower they used to be, but if I had to guess, I would say it was one of the many yellow flowers which I saw blooming in the spring.
For my readers in the US, don't forget to vote today, if you haven't already! I did!
