Oh, Glorious Autumn

Standard

The weather has been simply glorious.

At any moment the temperatures will drop, so we savor every bit of sunshine and balmy breeze. I’ve been busy with family activities and nary a moment to crochet, but I won’t complain. The memory-making is precious.

Bought a bit of self-striping yarn and worked up a cardigan one evening. Didn’t like it.  Already ripped it out and made a pop-over dress in the round. Not sure if I like that either…

Here’s the pattern for the dress (not pictured) if you’d like:

With the streak of glorious weather we had a lovely field trip to the Christmas tree farm for wreath-making. I’ve done this several times with the older girls and always enjoy it.

Dad came along too, a special treat.

I had fun with my new camera in the beautiful sunshine.

We even found a Charlie Brown tree!

The golden colors of the autumn countryside made my heart ache just a bit– so pretty.

The sight of these pine cones put me in the Christmas mood…

Where we live, this weather isn’t taken for granted. Yards have been put to rights, lawns mowed a last time or two, and winter gear washed and hung on the line to dry.

We are feeling a bit spoiled.

I hope it lasts a bit longer…
