Wasn't sure why I wanted to draw this tonight, but as I was drawing, I realized how much the shape of this pepper grinder reminds me of a lighthouse. Thinking of all those in the path of the hurricane, hoping for their safety in the storm.
A Prima - one of the first local apples of the season. Not sure I'm ready for autumn - we're still reveling in tomatoes and late summer fruits, but back-to-school meetings begin next week, so the new school year is nearly upon us. And the apple is sweet, tart, and crisp.
I was supposed to be home tonight, but the flight was cancelled (after I had checked my bags, naturally) and I'm not rebooked until tomorrow. Back to the now-empty apartment for a quiet evening, and I'll try again in the morning.
