Autumn is Past


October has flown by.  It seems I say that every month. Every month I feel like have accomplished only half of what I intended to.  October I taught a workshop, vendor at a quilt show, finished a quilt, and went to Quit Market in Houston. It sounds impressive. Yet I did not write a single blog entry.  It only takes a few minutes.  Actually it takes me longer than that as I really do not like writing.

One event I did notice this month was the beautiful autumn we had. I love September and October, warm sunny days and cold nights gave us lots of color. I did take a picture or two of trees in their prime.  I knew if I waited another day that color would be gone.

A couple of days after the picture taking I left for the Quilt Market in Houston. Houston was having a cold spell. I usually take capris and tops but this I packed long pants and sweaters and I wore the sweaters every day.  Super storm ‘Sandy’ was the topic of conversation, and some attendees left early in order to return home.  ‘Sandy’ swept our home area more gently than most areas. When I returned however all the leaves were gone – not gone exactly – on the ground.

Winter has firmly arrived; the sky is gray and cold. We have the fireplace burning and I am writing again.
