My Mornings Are Foggy



Like, really foggy.



Really, really foggy even...



Which is just weird.  Fog doesn't happen here very often.  I'm told that the weather we're having is an Oregonian's Heaven, but I have yet to understand why.

With the gloomy weather outside, I thought today would be a nice time to highlight the more often ignored side of Autumn.  No one wants to admit that Autumn isn't always full of bright colors, pumpkin pie, and apple cider, but sometimes it really does just look like this:








... and with that, I'm going to climb back into bed go to class.

What's that?  You expected to see knitting on my blog?  Oh dear.  Uh, give me some time, and I'll see what I can scrape up from the depths of what seems to be the remains of a previous knitting life.  (Carole tells me that we get an extra hour this weekend.  Maybe I'll use that time to knit - wouldn't that be nice?)

  1. You have my fog! Give it back! Or love it while you have it because it really is a wonderful gift.

  3. Lovely photos!

    Our fog has been missing in the morning (or I've slept through it) and I'm looking forward to that bonus hour.

  6. I can't believe how blue the sky is, even with all that fog and gloom. Sorry you're so busy, but your semester's over in about a month, right? Yippee!

  7. You have the gift of transforming even fog into something truly sublime. I have always thought of fog as something rather mystical. . .mom

  9. You can trust Carole. Those librarian types know their stuff.

    I was noticing colors on my way to work this afternoon. It's an overcast day and we're well past peak, so the palette has now changed from brilliant reds and oranges and yellows to browns and more muted oranges and yellows against an evergreen background. It's still beautiful.

  10. I know I'd probably be a wuss about it if I actually lived elsewhere, but I wish I had more weather than Houston can offer me. I do enjoy all the rain we get, though (I think I'm alone in that fact!).

    Your fog pictures are lovely. and I love that lonely little leaf.

  11. The photos really are wonderful, all of them. I think my fave is the sidewalk. Good eye.

    When I have a foggy day, I tend to imagine I'm in London. I think I have issues.

  12. As long as it doesn't rain every day, I am ok with rain, however this home girl needs her sun.

    You didn't use the extra hour for sleep?? I know I did.

    Maybe I need another hour. Or two.

  14. I don't know how you managed to make ugly drab gray weather look beautiful. Living in Portland, OR now I find that I hate weather like that, but your pictures make it look very romantic/mysterious.
