Hubbs and I took the dogs for a walk yesterday afternoon as the sun
descended towards the horizon.
With temperatures dropping, we soaked in the last of Autumn's warmth.
Earlier in the day a band of rain clouds ushered in a cold front...
and with those storms, the land was transformed to the monochromatic
browns that we will live with over the next several months.
Fall color is all but gone from the trees...
the remaining green belonging to pine trees.
The sights have changed.
The smells have changed.
The sounds have changed.
Autumn has wiped the jewel tones from his palette,
and has covered his canvas in burlap brown.
Winter looms in the not so distant future.
But...yesterday....yesterday still belonged to Autumn...
and we squeezed every bit of the season out of the day
as we walked through dry crunchy leaves, listening to the caw of crows...
watching the sun set on the horizon.
We took a few moments to play with the pigs....
And last...before we part,
I wanted to show you what I just finished.
I have spent the past week working on this little owl shawl...
Each little owl has tiny Czech glass beads for eyes (knit right into the pattern).
And although it looks grey in the photos, it is actually blue/grey.
It is knit with the softest 100% Merino wool.
I am planning on selling it. (Later the same day....and it is SOLD!)
