Falling Fast

"Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and cold, the wintry light. But you knew there would always be spring..." -Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

And doesn't it seem that in the blink of an eye we've gone from this... this? 

Only a few brave leaves hanging in there as we near the last week of November. This time of year is notoriously damp and dreary in the Pacific Northwest, but suddenly we've been blessed with bluebird skies and crisp, clear sunny days that should stretch into the weekend. Perfect weather for savoring what's left of fall.

Whether the sky overhead is gray or blue, I hope your weekend is full late autumn joys-- crackling fires, warm cashmere sweaters, candlelight, hot tea, that last little bit of Halloween candy. Whatever makes your life sweet!

What will you miss most about fall when the last leaf drifts to the ground?  XO


  1. The mild weather! Its arleady way way too cold for "fall". I love having to put on a thick sweater but nothing more...fall to me is the perfect season so its hard to say goodbye knowing we are going into the loooong winter season! Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Hello Jeanne
    Hot and beautiful here at the beach in Florida.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    I love your watercolours

  3. I just love Fall and the smell of smoke from fireplaces.. sweaters, it! These pieces of art are great!

  4. Thank you for the weather report - we get into Portland tomorrow night and cold and clear is my favorite!

    Here in SoCal there seems to be just one tree variety that offers a colorful display, but there are very few to be found.

  5. We'll miss all the time we spent outdoors cheering on our boys at their regattas and soccer games and can't wait for snow to fall on the hills so that we can hit the slopes.

  6. I miss the extended daylight hours. I like to garden and bike ride after dinner. However, now I stay inside and read (another favorite pastime).

  7. I will miss the extended hours too...we don't get much of a fall here...our summer goes on and on...its finally getting cold and were seeing winter...

  8. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again. Visit my link as well. Good luck
