Can you see Mt. Hood peeking out from the trees on the lower left portion of this photo? We have been having some lovely autumn weather with lots of pretty leaves still.
I took the first two photos of this post from the gym parking lot after swimming.
But there is no doubt that the autumn weather is shifting toward winter. My youngest daughter called out to me the other night to grab my camera and capture a photo of the moody moon. It was chilly out and I was glad to come back to the warmth inside to do some stitching!
I just received a generous parcel from a lovely friend in Scotland who thought I might like to try to make a bunny from some leftover yarn she had after making a teddy bear. I think it is making wonderful bunny fur and am so grateful for the gift!
Although the weather has been delightful on many days, yesterday it was sunny, but terribly windy. Our power was off for four hours causing me to realize how blessed I am most of the time to have power! I filled my paraffin lamps and then started longing for a cup of hot tea. I filled the teapot with water, stuck in a tea bag and put the teapot over a tea light candle. I did not time it, but I was so grateful that I eventually got a cup of hot tea :) not the strongest, but comforting and thirst satisfying.
Have you made tea this way?
Today our area has a winter storm warning for the next 24 hours. It is sunny at the moment, but we may see our first snow and ice since last Spring down here in the valley below Mt. Hood, although Mt. Hood is sporting a beautiful fresh coat of snow already.
Hoping you are comfortable and cosy and happy wherever you are!
