Tuesday morning sky

After lots of clouds, rain and a cold wind it is going to be a lot warmer with temps up over 20 degrees Celcius tomorrow.

The other side of fall

...the one with the beautiful colors

And in the afternoon...

There's no bad weather, just bad clothing...

Have a nice Sunday

Weatherforecast talked about lots of clouds for today. And rain. So I thought I'd take the chance of taking an early sunny picture...

A finished sock

... came off my needles today! I had started to knit with this yarn back in spring and wanted to make a lacy summer sock. Wasn't happy with all the patterns I chose in combination with the yarn (Knit Picks "Dancing").
Had the started toe with about an inch of patterned foot in my bag for weeks, then in the drawer for more weeks.
Now that I am off work for what was planned as a nice fall break BUT I got a nasty cold so I spend a lot of my time on the couch. Knitting.
First finished the grey striped socks for Sweetheart, then found my "summer" sock in the drawer. Decided to try plain stockinette stitch and that's it! Love the colours this way. Sock fits perfectly with the heel that fits just the same way as when I knit from the cuff down.
Now I hope that the second one goes as fast as that last part of the first one but I am positive as I still need some quiet time to relax and get fit again!

Have a great week

Only one more day of getting up early, then we'll be off work for two weeks and a half :)
Can you see the green shimmer above Flavie's head? That's the winter wheat already poking out of the ground.

Hot air balloon glowing

Saturday after-nap walk

It had rained last night but today the sun is back. Yet there is such a chill in the air that you can definitely tell that autumn has arrived.

Hot Air Balloons

There's going to be some championship in the neighbour town over the weekend. Women's European Championship if I remember it right.

Impressions from our walk around noon

It is very fall-ish today but we stayed dry...

It continues...

Have a gorgeous Sunday!

Blue sky

Good morning

I love to be up and outside early in the morning, especially as it is going to be another hot sunny day!

Have a great weekend

I thought I'd share a few night pics from the garden. My humming bird and the Fairy. I was very careful not to wake her up but still get enough light into her beautiful face :-)

Old Boy

If the girls get a post on their own, he needs one, too!
I think you can tell that he is an old dog, but not that he's 16, do you?
Thanks for coming over!

Three lions on a shirt?

Ah no, in our team it's three doggies on a bench... Sorry, couldn't help but playing with this :-)
Thanks for coming over!

September is here

and with it the meteorological autumn begins. It rained last night and the temperatures dropped to 13 degrees Celsius. And the air smells and feels like fall. Especially when you go on the doggie morning walk in shorts and barefoot. Unbelievable that not yet two weeks ago we had 38 degrees and could hardly sleep at night because it was still so hot.
A faint rainbow after the rain.

I vaguely feel my knitting mojo coming back!
Finished an UFO sock yesterday and started the second one instantly after.
Sorted through my WIP today and made some decisions.
Wanting to curl up on the sofa with a cuppa and some knitting. Good sign? But out it is with the doggies now, then running some errands...
Oh and as there is no sock picture, you perhaps want to follow this link to a picture of Dingo and Josy at my old blog.

Thanks for coming over!

Another evening sky

This time the colours aren't as stunning as the night before but the clouds look really interesting

Tonight's sunset

This is the reward for a late dogwalk ;-) but I've only got my phone with me, no camera...
