Our satellite connection for the Internet is very sketchy on stormy days, and today is a very storm day.I won't be able to upload photos this morning, and am not even certain when I might be able to get my blog uploaded. Therefore, today's blog will be brief. Earlier this morning I posted the pattern for the fingerless gloves I mentioned on Monday. I am calling them Lucky Warm Fuzzies ... you'll see why.

Back in the summer, on our way back from church one Sunday morning, we stopped up the road a bit so I could shoot a photograph of a nice old barn I admired.

The second barn had boards falling out of it, and light spilled in from the back side wall, lighting the little barn up from within.

It is drizzling rain outside, but not very cold. Most of the leaves have fallen from the trees, leaving much more of the river visible than on previous days. Fog mist lifts up from the river because the river water is warmer than the air ... very different from the ocean fogs that blanket Los Angeles and push along through canyons and valleys in a mad rush some mornings.
