According to AccuWeather we were supposed to have winds today of 30-40mph with gusts of 50.  I think it might have surpassed that by now.

Yesterday I took my new camera out and took a picture of the Asian Pear tree. It was such a gorgeous, bright gold/orange.

So pretty.

And this is what it looks like now.

Sad, isn't it??

A good day to stay inside and do this.

Sorry, didn't realize how cruddy my ironing board cover is until I saw the picture.  Pictures don't lie!!

Someday I will get that Orca Bay quilt put together.

A pot of Vegetable-Beef soup is on the stove for supper. It's the perfect night for it, with the wind howling like it is.


  1. The wind is something! We've spent 7+ hours cleaning leaves out of the yard then the wind switched to the North yesterday and blew a bunch from down the street back into our yard - I'm just over it! My ironing board cover looks worse than yours!

  2. Oh my gosh - it went from fall to winter just like that - that poor poor tree!!
