Suddenly Winter

Suddenly, the outdoor palette changes from golden hues to stark …nearly black and white… colors of winter.

But indoors…

Warm, golden hues.

Bear and Auggie napping.

While outside…

The forecast falling snow…

… falls.

Suddenly Winter.

Nov 1: srsly ??!!??

Much as I was happy to see Summer 2017 end, it is still a bit disconcerting to see November 1.


Did we have Fall?

We did have some Fall and it was gorgeous.

And maybe we will have some more as technically, Winter does not begin until December 21.


Yes, we had a very snowy November 1.


There is a WINTER STORM WARNING!!! for November 2 at 6:00 a.m. until November 3 at 12:00 p.m.

Currently 5-9 inches of snow is forecast for that storm warning timeframe.


Bring it.

Of pumpkins and figs and fall scenery

Sugar Pie Pumpkins in the Instant Pot!

For Sourdough Oatmeal Pumpkin Bread…


Figs. Bad photo but great figs. I hadn’t had fresh figs until this find at a local spot

I thought to make fig jam, but I kept eating the figs…

Sourdough Oatmeal Pumpkin Bread … French bread with figs!

The figs and the sourdough oatmeal pumpkin bread: good.

And out and about …

… Fall light…
