checking in

Rosey - what a beautiful picture!   Our leaves are starting to turn, ever so slightly.  In three weeks, though, we will be in full autumn color.

I always enjoy autumn because of the cooler weather, beautiful colors on the landscape, and knowing that in less than three months, the winter solstice will come and go, and then the days will begin to get longer.  Sophie loves the cooler weather, too.  It makes walking so much more comfortable for both of us.

Verrry interesting . . . I had to sign in to the BB Chat from Google's Chrome browser!  My computer was in the repair shop to have some sort of malware or spyware removed, and now Internet Explorer doesn't want to play nice with any of the blogs I follow on   I don't know what's up with that, because it worked fine before going into the shop.  I can read the BB Chat board but can not sign out, or make a comment nor a post.  Gah!    But at least it works on Chrome browser.  Yay!
If I don't get it sorted out soon, I'll call the computer shop and ask about it.

It is autumn

Our 'line' or road leading up into the valley below which will soon look like this in another week or two.  It is autumn.  The grass, with all the rain we've had is still growing and still green; the trees are beginning to change colour.  It's time to get refocused from the BandB season to a quieter, more leisurely time in my life and trying to get myself refocused means what quilt project am I going to begin as autumn turns into winter.  Our winter is much too long, driving most of us to distraction as much as it can be beautiful and winter sports, fun, we can also go stir crazy.  So a quilt project is good; finding good books to read helps pass the time unless you live in the southern states or down under where Fran, Marion and Bee are heading into their spring and summer months ahead and the weather is good.

If anyone cannot post to the blog and wishes to, please look at the previous responses, you'll find my email address in there.  I'm happy to post for anyone who wishes to post and can't get onto the forum...wish to heck Eric or Sue would come on and help us out with the difficulties people have been having.
