Celebrate this week, October 10th

Today I celebrate Fall colors and weather. It is warm and windy here today (balmy), we know that means a weather front is moving in and with it the likelihood of rain. We ran out to rake leaves that have dumped since the yard guys were here on Thursday. Some of the leaves were needed for the compost pile, the rest will go to the county composting station.

Muffy among the leaves in our backyard
Yesterday we awoke to this sunrise over Mt. Rainier. The morning skies can be spectacular this time of year, as you see.

Our yard trees are especially pretty this year.

Discover. Play. Build.
