At about 9:20 am today I realized that this day was going to suck eggs. Suffice to say that I was in the presence of an oral surgeon and a currently un-appreciated dental hygienist. And some things in the very recent past had gone very (very) wrong.
But there is no rewind button on reality. And I have a armory of pain drugs that would later hold me in their staticy embrace for the afternoon.
.... okay before all of that ... I was attempting to pass some time before my scheduled appointment. I had 20 minutes to kill. So I drove out to the Maryland nederlands. It was a beautiful, cold, wet, fall morning and I had a camera in my handbag.
So after almost driving into a swamp (long short story) I was driving past this house and I was just absolutely CHARMED by the scene. The house was a milion shades of economic restoration and depreciation.. and it had this amazingly cheery wreath on the door. I fell in love.
