hanging on / coming soon


click image to see better detail
I thought it was interesting how theses leaves, barely hanging on, looked like cocoons. It's actually this time of year that some insects start forming their cocoons and stay in them all winter long. I guess we all sort of do that - cozying up for the winter. / a friend came over yesterday - he and I made these chocolate peppermint muffins. i'll share them with my best friend who is coming home from college tomorrow. i can't wait to see her. i've got to get some tea from teavana before she gets here.

Color of leaves have changed.
Insects are going to hibernation.
But I can't find them in this town.
I need holidays to feel changing of seasons.

barely hanging on...very symbolic as that seems that we are all barely hanging on sometimes.

Great photos!

Oh, I am loving that gorgeous bokeh. I am also desperate to try chocolate peppermint muffins. If I bring the tea, can I come?

Happy Thanksgiving you two.
