first frost, a doe, tiny tea leaves, and a beautiful sunset :)
We woke to our first frost of the season on Wednesday the 4th; it was only a light one...barely 32 degrees. Barely even enough to scratch "first frost" into. I ventured out into what's left of the garden and picked the final few tomatoes; they were rinsed, chopped, seasoned, and roasted at 350 for 90 minutes before being pureed into sauce that went into the freezer. A doe and her fawn strolled through our back yard earlier this week (her fawn's rump is visible in the lower left corner over the slope). They like nibbling on our lawn. :)
Yesterday we drove to Gearhart -- nice to trade a wee bit of work for lodging. I like bartering. :) We weren't able to leave until early in the afternoon, and while knitting, I hoped and prayed that we'd arrive in time for the sunset...
We made it -- so thankful! :)
Jeff, Christina, and the girls are joining us later today! Looking forward to a slow, fun, weekend which could only be better if Jess & Z could be here, too. Miss them.
