Frost On A Pumpkin

Well, winter has officially arrived....there was a generous layer of frost on everything this morning...

And, there's snow in the mountains...

Today is Friday, knitting day, but Mr. Adams and I got so busy with errands and boat work that I forgot!!!  Molly texted me asking me where I was.....Shoot!  Oh well, next week. 

Meanwhile, down at the boat there was a little of this...

And alot of this....

That's a typical day at the harbor!!


  1. Did you get the bent pole problem figured out? Molly

  2. We took it off the boat and hauled it to Matt's shop. He is going to build us a new one later.
