Looming weather report...

Miserable weather today, - no, I shouldn't say that.
A warm, rainy day that may have got everyone wet
but was a good excuse to dig out the umbrella in this dry and arid country,
 and slop along in the puddles

However, the trees and the hills were sombre and misty.

and the clouds hung low along the river bottom.


I had cards to mail - great grandson has a Halloween birthday and a great-great niece recently married.  I scooped up the camera and my Ipad as I left for the post office, and duties done there I headed the car south to the river, where the sun was blessing the trees with 
the most glorious golden  aura.

Old haunts with my darling, and I had a little conversation with him about how the early fall was so dry, and the leaves so drab, but the rain has renewed their palette to its usual brilliance.

Today I went singing, somewhat saddened by the sudden and unexpected passing of one of our most friendly and kind choir members.

Tonight I have been looming, - sleying that lovely narrow silken scarf through the reed.  Shall I go back and finish it before I go to bed??

I am tempted....

And did you?

Lovely Autumn colours Hildred. I love it that you can hold conversations with your late husband and get comfort from them.

I see you have the silk on the loom. Gloomy or brilliant, those landscapes are beautiful, Hildred.

Those beautiful landscapes are the kind to inspire memories (and conversations). It has been too dry in this part of the Pacific Northwest, but this month has at least well-begun to make up for the drought. I do not complain (much).

I sometimes find it hard to go to bed if I am trying to finish something (photo arranging, blogging -- nothing anywhere near as creative as what you do) ... it makes a difference knowing that you don't have to get up at a certain time the next morning -- but I know I feel better if I adhere to some sort of a schedule.
