a slow morning

it's a rainy monday in portland. the color of the leaves that still stay attached to the japanese maple is vivid and lovely. pops of orange, yellow and red against the cold grey skies. there is a chill to the air in the house.

i long for a day in jammies, but know we have errands that must be run. that's the problem with living in the rainy climate in winter. you don't ever want to leave your house on days off. we will get out, errands will be run. but the desire to start a fire so i can sit and knit in its warm glow is strong. of course that would mean having to go out to the garage to get some wood. and my fire starter is still in bed.

so instead i sit listening to the sound of the rain on the roof and the trees, thinking of turning the heat up a bit (it's set to 62) so i can work on a fun little project for someone i hold dear to me. i have a looming deadline, this weekend. eep!

life is good. i am thankful.

Hope you had a chance to enjoy that fire after running errands. Oh, how I miss a fireplace on those cold dreary days!

Your mother and I are looking forward to our visit at Christmas. I suspect that there will be firewood in the house by then.

Who knows, perhaps a rousing game of Wii golf will warm us up.

Love you,

Oh, a fire! What a perfect idea. But it's too late this evening...
