Let me begin by telling you that Buffy the Buff Orpington hen has been clucking up a storm this morning, so hubby went out to check to see if we had our FIRST egg from our 5 young hens.. when he opened the door to come in I looked at him expectantly and he shakes his head and says.. "Nothing, yet." Dang! LOL!
I've been waiting anxiously for the yarn to come from JoAnns that I ordered online, so I could finish the lacy edge of the shawl I've worked on for weeks.. and I've crocheted some booties while waiting.. still no yarn.. so yesterday I crocheted a wash cloth in bright yellow cotton. I've got it displayed on yet another addition to my Jadeite collection, an oval platter. My Majolica chicken atop the cloth.I love using my own handmade cloths to wash up in the kitchen.
I can't wait to use this at Thanksgiving dinner.
My ceramic pumpkin.. I love it, it will never rot. :-)

I wanted to share with you the Autumn light shining over the farm today, I snapped this at 10:30 am - there is a haze in the air from forest fire near Sisters, Oregon. We've been smelling smoke in the air for weeks now. I'm actually hoping for rain! Looking out over the farm yard...
Our Begonia is still blooming...
Sun shining through the leaves of the weeping Birch.
I've got my Fall wreath on the back door. Now to get some pumpkins!
My daughter took our granddaughters to a holiday shop and snapped a photo of the girls with these cute cat masks on. We get to see them in a few weeks when we fly to Ohio! We'll be there for Jenna's 8th birthday! We are very excited.
I will leave you with a wonderful video of the Columbia River Gorge, shot in a totally unique way with music. I do hope you watch it. It was done by the same people that shot the movie of my nephew's wedding at VooDoo Donuts! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
