More Mitts, Autumn Leaves, and Some Chickens

Just when you think Fall is winding up, you drive by the library and see something like this:

The Japanese Maples are in fine form and make a great subject for Prisma experimentation, as Ginger discovered.

Echoing the red and gold theme – these berries I spotted on one of my dog walks.

I’ve done some searching online and can’t identify the shrub they come from. Can anyone help?

CPT A brewed a batch of beer over the weekend. He’s working on a cranberry wheat version. The leftover spent grains went straight to the chickens, who were more than happy to help dispose of them.

(Don’t worry, there’s nothing alcoholic about them. Wheat, barley, oats…that’s about it).

On the crafting front, I finished another pair of fingerless mitts – this time for CPT A, who celebrated a birthday and had mentioned that a pair might come in handy for him too.

Here, you see them on my hands (I didn’t want to spoil the surprise). I used Patons Classic Wool and the always reliable Maine Morning Mitts pattern.

And, finally, with November has come the Christmas season – in the stores, at least. Everywhere we went last week, shops were putting up displays and decorations. Ginger snapped this shot in Anthropologie – which always does a great job decorating in any season.

Hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner…but they are. In the meantime, I’m still raking up leaves.

From the dining room table, thinking today will be a good today to get on that,
