Welcome to the holidays - cold and brisk and monstrous!
Time to gather apples,nuts and mushrooms, all sorts, and eat as much as you possibly can.
cold weather is coming.
Time to take a drive down Chuckanut after a feast of bready heavy everything - pie- cream- buttery mushrooms.
Rare day of sunshine!
stop by a small waterfall- the HUGE boulder beside it- dedicated to Governor Lister by the Ladies Improvement Club of Edison(?) from long ago...They could afford the plaque and had to hang it somewhere. A dedicated boulder- makes perfect financial sense...and I would say that the ladies fulfilled their promise- This boulder is much improved with the brass plaque bolted to it's face.
boulder is not going anywhere any time soon- unless gravity gets the better of it, firmly bound by vine maple and a tightly knit hillside of roots well rooted, of twisted branches and grasses.
tapestry of all things weaving and rotting , budding and blooming, exquisitely.
We began the season well- Family for thanksgiving and a great time had by all!I hope that yours was well spent- now on to the next big deal...elves and angels and trees and lights and all of that sparkly stuff. Are we ready? I think so- The Dalai Lama has stated that "things are not the thing" and that time spent with another or advice given to another is quite a gift- so, Advice it is- I am sure that all will treasure that and be grateful...makes my shopping a whole lot easier.
