Change of seasons

Anacortes is finally getting some rain, which we need.  Washington rain tends to be gentle and sporadic, unlike Southern California which experiences downpours after months of drought.  We walked Washington Park yesterday and saw birds bathing in puddles, slugs trying to cross the road, and seagulls on the lookout for fish.  It was a beautiful afternoon with blue sky and fleecy clouds.  Today the gentle rain is back, making the forestlands smell so clean and fresh.  It’s not very cold so hopefully the pumpkins on our porch will last a month or so.  Recent winds blew a lot of leaves off the trees but it’s still pretty.  I can’t wait for winter: coats, scarves, gloves, cosy fireplaces, chili and soup, apple cider and gluhwein–and of course Christmas.  We haven’t had much snow for years, but you never know…
