365 Day Photo Challenge for November 6th thru November 12th, 2010

Hi everyone, 

How are you today? I'm doing well.  Oh, I think I'm overdosing on cute craft projects and magazines :) :) It's amazing how many creative people are out there.  It's too bad that I don't have enough hands to keep up with all the projects I'd like to make. Here are my photos for this week!!  

Saturday - November 6th, 2010 (photo actually taken on Sunday - November 7th)

It rained last night. It was really neat. I woke up early this morning and the steady drop of rain was a  nice sound :) :) My dad and I went to the store this morning to pick up the Sunday paper. I LOVE clipping coupons AND Albertson's had some "double" coupons out...so I had to take advantage of that. On the way home, I just had to get a photo. The mountains are so beautiful here, especially right after it has rained. This is what it looked like today less than an hour after the rain had stopped.

Sunday - November 7, 2010 Cute ducks having some fun in the creek. They'd float  downstream then paddle back upstream...float downstream..paddle back upstream :) :)

After my dad and I stopped at the store for the Sunday newspaper, we stopped at my favorite coffee spot, The Human Bean. It's a really nice drive-thru coffee chain :) :) Anyways, as we were leaving we passed by this little creek...and this is what I saw...They were so cute...I just had to get a photo. You don't often see this many ducks in this little creek. They knew where the fun was at this morning ;) :) :)

Monday - November 9th, 2010 It was a really rainy day today...so dark and gloomy.
It went from being really sunny to dark and gloomy in the space of just a few hours. Oh, still it's really nice. This was literally the best picture I was able to take with my camera that day.

Tuesday - November 9th, 2010  (this photo was actually taken November 7th)

This day was so sunny and beautiful. I'm not sure it could have been any more beautiful! Oh wait...yes...a day like this and I'm on my way home :) :)


Wednesday - November 10th, 2010  This day the clouds were really interesting. I never tire of looking at clouds....but today the clouds looked extra fat and chubby...and because of that, it literally felt like I could just reach out and touch them.

The clouds were hanging so low in the sky, it felt like they would touch the ground at any moment. It was really neat to see...

Thursday - November 11th, 2010  I do love me a good Zauberball of yarn :) :) This particular brand of German yarn is really nice!!!

 This yarn is so cool because of the subtle color transitions. It's "zauber" which means "magic" because you don't even notice the color transitions until four or five shades into your knitting project.


Friday - November 12th, 2010.  Here's one of many projects that I'm working on. It'll be a  mitten...knitting it as an "experiment"...but mainly it gives me an excuse to use up some really nice yarn :)

I always have a few unfinished projects lying around the house...and true to form, as I'm about to finish one project, another one will begin :) :) :) I love going to the knitting shop and drooling over all the beautiful yarn choices. The colors are amazing!!!

Well, I hope everyone has had a great week. I'm going to enjoy the weekend. I'm all snuggled up in my flannel nightgown. It's so warm and comfortable!!!  Have a great weekend. That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs, Heather :)

Hi, sweet Heather. I've had minimal computer time this week, so I've missed visiting with you.

Anyhow, as always, your photos are lovely. I especially LOVE the ducks floating down the stream. SO adorable!!! I think ducks are so pretty.

Have fun with all your yarn!!!

Love,
Patti

Love your fall photos. Where I live in Ore is getting drab looking. The colorful trees across the street from where I work looks ok still. I can see them thru the glass doors. I love your mallard duck photo! So cute! I 'm knitting a sweater for my granddaughter. It was a pattern I've not knitted b4 but it's turning out ok. I just need to finish it by Christmas. Good thing that she's a little girl! Hugs!
