First Frost!

We woke up to a thick blanket of frost this morning! The first of the season. It is icy cold but clear. Yesterday was very blustery and there was snow at Snoqualmie Pass, about 45 miles or so away from us. Reminded me of a quote by Dr. Ruth, "When the weather's hot and sticky, it's no time for dunkin' dicky, but when the frost is on the pumpkin, it's time for dicky dunkin'..."

Speaking of pumpkins, here are some cute pictures that made the email rounds last week!

    In the UK it's spring (63 degrees!) although we're promised some nice cold stuff from 'up-north' by Wednesday. Cute/Naughty Pumpkins by the way :-)

  2. I didn't think I'd like the pictures. I was wrong - they are very funny.
