The weather has been crazy
like a crazy quilt
out here this week.
Gale force winds,
massive power outages,
boats and branches flung everywhere
and rain, rain, rain.
|Tuesday morning after the wind storm -- branches scattered like random beads and a fence like a border stitch on a crazy quilt.|| |
|Sometimes my quilt looks like a storm has hit as I'm trying to decide what ribbons and stitches to use.|
Meanwhile, back at the beach,
I found a lot of things floating around
that don't belong here,
like the piece of dock (I think that's what it is)
and the canoe below ...
... and this soggy pillow washing back and forth
in the waves.
The gravel road up from the water was carpeted
with shiny wet leaves and Doug-fir needles ...
part of Nature's crazy quilt.
The roses of summer are long gone ...
Have a colorful day
