Oh Happy Day

Son called while self was teaching her Monday night African American Lit class (Tonight’s reading: ZZ Packer’s collection Drinking Coffee Elsewhere).  The message he left with hubby was, he wants us to go down and watch a play that one of his friends is appearing in, Dec. 6.

Oh happy happy joy joy!  It’s been almost a year since self and hubby were invited to approach vicinity of San Luis Obispo by sole fruit of self’s loins!  And, luckily, Dec. 6 is just before final exam week, so self will have no lesson plans to prepare!  And by then we will all know who our new President is!  And whether Measure W and Propositions 2 (ending the practice of camming farm animals into cages), 8 (banning gay marriage in California), and 11 (League of Women Voters urges NO on this one) will pass!

Today, self finally got to give Dearest Mum her Christopher Elbow chocolates.

And she finally had a lively African American Lit class (Thank you, ZZ Packer, for writing such breezy stories!)

And it finally turned cold, so self can now plant her daffodil bulbs!

Here is a quote, which self thinks is just right for this season of bright orange pumpkins and turning foliage:

Color possesses me.

I don’t have to pursue it.

It will possess me always,

I know it.  That is the

meaning of this happy

hour:  Color and I are one.

I am a painter.

—  Paul Klee

    I went to the Elbow website- wow! Those chocolates are almost too pretty to eat!

    Yes! That’s why it was so much fun choosing which ones to get; I had the salesperson (all salespersons were male, is this some kind of trend? In chocolate shops?) arrange/ re-arrange, so that the colors offset each other, just like in a painting!

    It’s not a play! It’s the Christmas Celebration Choir Concert! Hopefully, I can get tickets tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted.
