There were so many days in a row with only a trace of rain here I almost entitled this post, Parched Portland, but compared to many places even our driest seems moist and cool. Today the rain is gently falling, the heater is running, and I have my Homespun prayer shawl about me as I type to you. Last Sunday afternoon we drove around some of the back roads to our house. We stopped and bought two bouquets of dahlias and daises from a farm stand...perhaps the last we will have this season. When we got home we walked around the ponds that are just grassy puddles now, although a stream of water is still rippling through the brush. It was a perfect day to enjoy swinging and strolling and staring at the wondrous sights around us before settling in to the comforts of hearth and home.
Are you having happy autumn days? I hope so :) xx from Gracie
