Here it is October and time for some lovely fall weather. I love autumn with its cooler temperatures and beautiful colored foliage. I like cool weather clothes a lot more than summer attire, and I love the food that seems better suited to getting cozy inside. The one thing I’m not crazy about in October is snow. We started with a light dusting last week. It wasn’t too bad, and even though there are still a lot of leaves on the trees, everyone knows that the snow will disappear and we can carry on with autumn. The snow that’s fallen in the last couple of days is making it hard to believe. Here are some photos of our yard with a bit of “acceptable” October snow. Note that Kush the cat was willing to spend time outside, even though she decided to hang around on the perimeter of the white stuff.
Today I braved the snowy roads to visit my friend, Catherine. I’ve never seen her outdoor furniture covered in snow, because it is usually put away before that can happen. We love to have our tea outside, but we decided against it today.
I don’t have anything to show for studio work this week. I’ve cut some fabric for a quilt project and carved some Christmas images for printing. Hopefully I’ll have something to share next week. I’m suffering with a mystery knee injury that has slowed me down in a big way. I’ve missed yoga twice this week, which feels like old-fashioned snow days when school was cancelled!
