Through the living room window. . .And down the hall just a ways, the view from the office/sewing room window.The leaves are covering the front walk. . .The mophead grass. . .And they are filling the little concrete leaf below.Someone has to rake the leaves - a big job! But for today I'll open the blinds again, let the sunshine in and enjoy the colorful view of the world just outside my window and door.

Here in our part of Oregon we have had the most beautiful, crisp and cool Fall days. We've had sunny skies for many days and I think we are getting spoiled! Yesterday morning we had some rain with periods of intermittent sunshine. The big maple tree near our front door is gorgeous! It doesn't matter if the sun is shining on it or if the raindrops are highlighting the brilliantly colored leaves. It is just gorgeous!!! Yesterday I worked at home - a combination of preparation for my chaplain ministries this week and housework. I found myself constantly drawn to the front windows of our little home and the center of my attention was always the tree and the leaves that have fallen. Normally I keep the mini-blinds on the windows down but open. Yesterday I couldn't leave them down. I wanted to clearly see the artistry of the season. So, I raised the blinds, let a bit of the world outside in and enjoyed the view for the rest of the day and into early evening. Not long after 'letting Fall in' I decided to take pictures and share with you what I enjoyed all day long.
