Hellooooo, I hope you have a fun Halloween if you celebrate it. We're going to have a low-key evening. We live in a 100 year old farmhouse, set back 50 feet or so, so we rarely if ever have a trick-or-treater come by. But we always buy candy bars.. just in case.. the kind we like.. just in case. :-)
I found two new Halloween decorations this year, above is this darling little witch sitting on a moon with her black cat holding a broom. Below is a cute, sparkly haunted house that lights up.
Our Pin Oak tree is almost all red, so I snapped this while we had a bit of clear weather. Do you see the skeleton hanging on the lamp-post and the ghost bride hanging on the gazebo??
Dayle walked in to Multnomah Falls yesterday to pick something up at the Visitors Center, so he snapped a few photos for me.
The maples are turning yellow and orange there.
Since we've finally had rain.. there is a lot more water coming over the falls.
This is my favorite shot.
Since the rain was so late, there was not enough water in Multnomah creek for the salmon to come up and spawn, but Dayle spotted two of them there yesterday. One is easy to see, the other is back further.
Here is a shot of the falls from the parking lot in the middle of the freeway.
I had put my Kromski Polonaise spinning wheel on Facebook Marketplace where it didn't get much response.. until a few days ago when a woman texted me that she'd like to come and see it. I oiled it up and she and her husband arrived to check it out. She did some adjusting and tested it out with some wool she'd brought. It worked very well for her and a deal was struck. Farewell pretty spinning wheel. I now have one wheel, I'll have to oil it up and take a photo to show you. It is a handmade cherry one made in New England.
I included the Kromski Lazy Kate, so I rolled up a ball of yarn I'd spun. I prefer hand rolled balls as I think they're pretty.
I wonder what I could use this medium sized ball for? What would you do?
Kristi took Caleb to the doctor as he had an injury that was incurred while he and his brother were rough-housing in the attic. In the dark. He has a broken index finger. Poor guy.
And so.. I'm off to swim. Then home for a family dinner and a homey evening of spooky movies and some candy bars. :-) What are your plans for the evening?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
