Sometimes things in Life are not as perfect as you'd like. One of my favorite roses "Pat Austin" was ravaged by sawfly larva. But it still opened and smelled amazing despite its troubles.
This past week for me has sort of been ravaged by cosmic sawfly larva. I am leaving for Bead and Button on Weds. I am supposed to be farther ahead in my preparations.
I planned well but the universe had other ideas. This week has been a series of misadventures and of little things going awry, highlighted by my dog getting into the medicine cabinet and opening a bottle of grape flavored children's ibuprofen and licking up the contents. Which meant my day was spent with an emergency vet visit instead of finishing up bisque ware for the show.
So I am trying to find the beauty in imperfection and reminding myself that we just have to do the best we can under the circumstances, even with cosmic sawfly larva.
