autumn

While the calender states that yesterday was the first day of fall I'd say it's been going on for over three weeks here in my part of Alaska. These photos were taken driving home from my last day of work, which was two weeks ago today. It's been beautiful, and I'm holding on to that it'll last a bit longer.


I've been doing a whole lot of knitting which I hope to show you soon, few projects have gotten finished (I keep running out of yarn right at the end!), but last night I managed to complete some sweet fingerless mitts which I'm quite excited about. It's been good to just stay home and exist. Sometimes I feel that I get too busy and forget to do that. This summer was wonderful though and I'm really looking forward to this next March when the whole greenhouse process will start again, but I'm also looking forward to the months ahead. God is so good and I am excited to see what he has in store.




Love to you all! I'll be back soon!

PS: oh yes, all photos are mine, please don't steal them, and I DID take them while I was driving, which is a very bad idea, please don't try it. No one got hurt and I actually stayed on the road, but I don't plan on doing it again. Good thing I've broken that habit BEFORE the roads get icy. Okay, now I'm done.

Well, even if it's not a good idea, at least you got some gorgeous pictures from it! (Rather nonchalant of me to say, really - but it's the truth!)

"It's been good to just stay home and exist."
Oh my goodness! I use that exact same phrase! Why, just the other week I wrote in my journal something like, "I've forgotten how good it is to just sit and exist."
I don't know why that similarity surprises/pleases me so much, but it does. :)

This is lovely. Your Alaskan Autumn looks beautiful. The colder months are perfect for existing; it gets too cold and dark to go out or do much other than snuggle up at home in blankets.
