Spent the entire morning yesterday on the back porch. It was so cold in the house it was making me tired. I sat in a chair directly in the sun & let her rays do their thing for about ten minutes. What a pick-me-up! I knit for a bit while the girls were inside eating breakfast. Heard the Chickadees in the woods & a very, very loud woodpecker having a go at a tree. The boxelders were pinging against the porch floor & screens every few minutes, losing their minds in the late October sunshine.
Our porch has been made ready for winter. Wood stack in place, summer trappings in hibernation…the garden cleaned out, fall crop of Bibb lettuce nearly ready for harvest…but Autumn seems to have tightened her grip & made a power play…yesterday’s weather was just awesome.
I’ve frogged so many projects lately it’s a bit worrying…I can’t seem to commit….much like this Autumn weather, it’s here, it’s on the way out, it’s here again…currently I’m knitting a knit lovey with Camilla’s fiber thanks to Ginny’s post last week. Hoping the project works out & it can become my go-to baby toy pattern for Christmas/shower gifts.
Planning to re-read Stephen Crane’s “The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky” today in order to aid Coralee with her Lit homework. I think the last time I read it was in 11th grade. That’s a lot of Autumns ago.
Joining in with Ginny.
