Happy Autumn! It doesn't feel or look much like autumn here. But that's what the calendar says. Here is Willow's Week, celebrating Friday Fave Fives with Susanne and others.
1. About autumn--The Professor announced a couple of days ago that he had just declared that fall has arrived. Why? Because it was cool enough in the morning to wear a flannel shirt! I wore one the other day, too. So, yeah, I guess it is cooling down a bit.
2. Early Evening Hike. There were six of us (including The Professor). We hiked up and down the hills surrounding a neighboring community for between three and four miles. I like hiking when the sun is no longer high in the sky--it makes for cooler temperatures. And our companions were congenial. (I'm going to post this and then check my camera--did I take any decent photos? If so, I'll include them later.)
3. BYOD. That stands for Bring Your Own Dinner. We have an arrangement with our friends for dinners. She and I have been friends since college, and we have maintained our friendship all these years. Since they live several miles out of town on their ranch, they text us their order for a local eating place, and we get our meals and drive to their place for dinner. We enjoy our fellowship, and no one has to spend hours preparing and cooking. I have always called my friend Blueberry Lady, but since they are now growing strawberries, she told me I should change her name to Strawberry Lady.
4. World's Best Neighbor needed to go to Santa Barbara this week. We drove her up there. And since we were already nearby, we popped over to see an old (in both senses of the word) friend, take her to lunch and help her do some grocery shopping. It was a joy to spend that bit of time with an long time colleague from our Indonesia days.
5. That loom I purchased? Here is my first project! A scarf for those cooler days coming up. I used two shuttles and two colors to create a sort of herringbone tweed pattern. I'm so excited! This is one I'm keeping for myself.
Happy Weekend, Friends! Be watchful and thankful for those daily blessings.
