Darkening Days

The colors of October are quickly fading to brown. It is looking more and more like November. While the textures remain interesting, the gray sky, brown leaves and naked trees can leave one in need of some color.
A good time to weave.

I have finished the scarf I was working on. It was a pleasant change from the browns outside.

But it has been a lazy few days at Brookwood Shire.

Fergus and Merlin have been snuggled up sleeping away the days.

They enjoy every day.

I find myself making soups and breads…curling up with a book. This squash soup is tasty, warm and colorful!

The girls have been enjoying what is left of the pumpkins. Nice of the squirrels to leave a little for someone else.
And so it goes. Last year at this time we had a snowstorm.

Very unusual for us. Now they are talking about a possible hurricane!
So I it is nice to be able to just enjoy this calm, quiet weather….

And know that the bright colors of summer will return again!
