Washington receives its fair share of blustery days in November.
our week started off with strong winds
leaving behind a flurry of fall leaves and branches
Huge branches were fallin off our Evergreen trees.
this branch has yet to be removed a few days later
maybe Sammy and I will venture out tomorrow
and find a new home for it!??
smaller deciduous trees were snapping like twigs in the gusts.
all over our Capital City.
I found many trees like this little one.
Over the years
We have lost some beautiful OLD trees
I love trees.
and we had a wee Earthquake Monday morning?!!
no images for that one sorry!!
I even felt it…
and figured it was the wind rattling the house… HELLO?!
until my man called to set me straight!
He called and said
“did you feel the earth quake?!!”
and I was like this:
“um.. yeah… except I thought it was the wind”
smart. S M R T . thats me.
the wind was stirring up the leaves all over town.
It was the coolest thing to watch the leaves fluttering about…
dancing on the streets
and running in the grass…
blowing off rooftops and flipping around in the air
swirling about the town without a care in the world!
Free fallin in the Wind
I was aching to have a fabulous camera to capture the magical fun!
That picture of concrete above…
is a sad pathetic attempt at capturing the swirling leaves. :0)
Really … it was So magical!
Tuesday night the dark clouds rolled in
and the next day heavy rain dumped from the dark sky
all day long
offering more magical fun!
Sammy and I had a blast driving through town on Wednesday (windsday)
we had a few places to go that day
and there were huge puddles across the roadways
All Over Town!!
So Much Fun!!
*ahem* cough * cough *
yes I WAS driving with my camera in my hand!!
look what else I was able to capture at 20 miles an hour!!
that is the splash from inside my car …
at 20 miles an hour…
looking over the right side of the hood… lol!!
Seriously WET day!!
Next time I am going to plant myself in front of a huge huge puddle on the road way and wait for the cars to drive by… in a wet suit… with a water proof camera… a HUGE umbrella… and a boat!! =)
It has been a wild and wooly week here in the Capital City of Washington…
Today I think I will stay indoors…
and maybe attempt to drink WAY too much coffee and bake.
while schoolin my boy of course!!
I don’t really have to be anywhere today. love those days!!
it is a good day to listen to the rain, ponder life, bake, drink coffee and hope I don’t loose power whilst baking me some Moist Pumpkin Bread and chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips! and Pecan Scones!! YUM.
baking is science right?
Saturday we are supposed to have more Heavy rains.
Praying that there will not be any serious flooding!
A few years ago November rains caused serious flooding
devastating families in a smaller town near by…
we helped clean up a couple houses in the aftermath…
at Christmas time.
it was heart wrenching!!
Praying that our November rains do not repeat recent history …
and that it will remain harmless blissful fun!!
Have you splashed in any puddles lately?!
Seize the Day ~ put on your boots and enjoy the rain!!
