Breathing Space – October 29/14

Breathing Space 10-29-14aAll the debris from our storms are making the squirrels and birds happy. Plenty of easy foraging. I gave this little guy some time to enjoy his snack, but eventually I had to move forward. He thought he was very sneaky hiding behind the topper on the fence post.

Some of the maple leaves are huge! The trees in the woods are mostly stripped of leaves but still beautiful and fresh-smelling after the rains.

Breathing Space – October 25/14

I’ve been looking for red leaves but the warm temperatures have made few. The last couple days have been Fall cleaning – high winds and pouring rains. The debris on the ground is thick and amazing. The last photo is of the wind-raked new-fallen leaves in my yard. Incredible amount of leaves!

Breathing Space – October 23/14

When I took this picture yesterday (it’s now the 24th) I hadn’t yet heard the news, but I’d like to think this rainbow shined over Mt. Si for him as he passed.

In Memory of Josiah Bastedo, May He Rest in Peace.

All of you writers out there, are you ready for NaNoWriMo? Most of our FVP featured authors wrote their published works during one of these annual word-weaving extravaganzas. If you don’t have a Region group in your area, we welcome you to join Snoqualmie Valley Region as your Home Region. We’ll be glad to cheer you on to the 50,000 word finish line! If you haven’t written your novel yet, what are you waiting for? Give it a try this November. We’re right here with you!

Here’s the flyer for our local Kick-off Party. If you’re near enough to attend, we look forward to seeing you there!

Breathing Space – October 22/14

Breathing Space 10-22-2014Our little garden gnome better get to work on all those leaves that keep falling! … I wanted to capture the high river after all of the intense rain on October 22nd. It was too dark for a photo when I got home, but here’s one (a little late) from the morning of the 23rd. As you can see the small bushes at rivers edge during the summer are now surrounded by water, and only the larger rocks are visible today.
