Today the heat came on in my building.  I guess that means autumn is officially here.  (I don’t pay attention to that day on the calendar that says autumnal equinox, I go by the weather!)  My apartment was 64 degrees, but I didn’t mind.   Hmmmm,  I wonder what that means?  : )  Now I can hear the steam coming up with that steam smell and clanging that New York apartments are known for.   Soon I will have to wear a t-shirt and shorts at home cause it will be so hot.

I continued work on the autumn leaves piece today.   There’s still more work to do on it.   The background needs work and so do the leaves.  Oh, the whole damn thing still needs work. But for now I will bask in the steam whistling into my apartment and then go feed my doggie.

In keeping with the season I wanted to do something with an Autumn-y feel.   So I started this painting of fall leaves.  This is as far as I got.  Then the work week started and that was the end of that.  Busy, busy week.  I will try and get back to this soon, even if it’s just to keep Bill quiet!   Long work days ahead and I have  plans after work too.   Among other obligations, tomorrow I will see GYPSY on Broadway with Patti Lupone.   I told my friend I was so tired I might fall asleep.   He said “how could you fall asleep with Patti screaming on stage”?  Good point.  Other plans and family obligations take up the rest of the week and the weekend.  I’m tired already.

Today is the Jewish New Year 5769.   My how time flies!   My friend says she is still writing 5768 on her checks.  This cracks me up every year.   The really good thing for me is that there were seats on the subway this morning.

Two of my paintings were selected to be in the Putnam Arts Council 46th Annual Juried Fine Arts Show.  They are “Hot Noodles” and “Strawberries”.   So,  if you’re around the Tilly Foster Farm, 100 Route 312, Brewster, NY  10509 between October 4th and October 25th stop by.

Now I must iron blouses for the rest of the work week.  Ugh.
