Good- By Fall 2014

 Where in the world did this fall go?  I thought the leaves started turning early this year...and they were so pretty.  Our yard has several types of Maple trees and their color just pops with the beautiful spruces and pines.  Danny and I spent several hours working in the yard...Danny vacuuming up the leaves and putting them on the garden and I cleaning out the flower beds and putting the plants to bed for another winter.

I sit on the sofa and look out the picture window and this is what I see...  I sip on my hot morning coffee with a shot of amaretto.   Watch the weather, plan my day...which NEVER goes as planned...but just call me flexible.   Back to what I see...this beautiful Maple.  I watch it turn green in the Spring and watch the little squirrels scurry up and down it and then after the green summer, it breaks out in this riot of color.  

Our first snow hit us last week ...before Thanksgiving this year....Danny had just vacuumed up the leaves  for the last time the day before I took this picture.  Snowing!

Today we woke up to more snow falling and the temps dropping...we are in a winter storm warning of 6-10 inches.  Usually when I look out this direction, I can see the lake but not today.

So I went downstairs to my studio to weave and get some spinning done.

I warped my large tapestry loom yesterday.  It is a slow go but a very peaceful hobby.

 I am late but would like to say thank you to all the US Veterans that have fought for this country.

My father Ross Thomas Bagley, served in the army in World War II.  He was decorated with a Purple Heart and with the Bronze Star.  My dad usually had a big smile on his face but when I look at this picture I can see the sadness, maybe fear of a young man leaving his family and going over seas.  My father  had his first heart attack at the age of 50 and died 5 years later.    Miss him so much.

This is my husband of 44 years...he served in the Navy during the Vietnam War.  He ran boats up and down the river in Vietnam...he looks so young in these pictures.

My Danny Boy...Daniel O'Bryan Coffman
The battles of war leave scars and memories  that stay with you years and years after you get back home.
God bless everyone that has fought for this country....
