It's now or never ....



It feels a little weird blogging again. I've thought about it over the last week or so, didn't know where to start. You get used to not thinking about it real fast. You stop noticing blog worthy things or moments, which cross your way. Life goes on without blogging, no problem. I'm not even sure I've got something to say. I sure do have things to show you, knitted things. Some left over from before the break, some projects I made during the last month, but not today.

So, it's now or never! I thought I'll ease back in, not with spinning, knitting or even with doggie stories, but with this lovely indidcation of Fall. It's part of our front yard.

Today the weather had me in a peculiar mood all day, and right before the sun set, I took this photo (not that we actually saw the sun today). I love it, the photo. The funny thing though is that it's really pretty, right? But - how am I going to spot the doggy piles? The leaves came down so fast!

Well, my dear readers, I've missed you all, that is unquestionable true, even if I didn't miss posting itself.

Welcome back! I've seen your projects and they are gorgeous.

The picture is awesome. A perfect example of the fall colors. I love the red-orange leaves.

Your leaves won't wait. It's that time of year when I am amazed at the seasons: our weather is hot, humid and everything is blooming, and you have Autumn!!!

You made me homesick with that photo. I LOVE fall!

It looks like you have visit a danish garden. The colors of fall is so beautiful - and short time being here. Imagine - if the colors of fall was here in 3 to 4 month.
You forgot the dogs - and knitting - you are still knitting, am I right?

Welcome back, Monika. You were missed, indeed. It is so good to see your blog in dark letters on bloglines, and to read your thoughts and see the beautiful Fall colors. Can't wait to see what you have been knitting. So very glad you are back!!

Ein Glück, dass Du das "Now" und nicht das "Never" gewählt hast!

Hey, Monika! Glad you are back.
The leaves are very pretty. Reds have been lovely here this year but the rain and wind are taking them down quickly

Dreams of Yarn said...

Really lovely photo Monika, so nice to see you posting!

Marianne said...

Susan said...

Yay, you're back! I've missed you! What a gorgeous picture - we don't get fall colors like that here in Saskatchewan.

Walden said...

Welcome back. I know what you mean about it being easy to slip away. I hope you are back to stay with us for a while.

Sharon V said...

Welcome back! You were missed, truly.

Your front yard looks like my back yard. It seems such a waste to clean up all that prettiness to throw it in the trash.

Happy Autumn!

Cambria said...

Marissa said...

So nice to see you again. I confess, when I crave exceptional knitting (and Lord knows I won't find it here in MY house), I stalk your Ravelry projects. It always gives me a thrill!

Hege said...

Wow - look at those colours!!
Good to have you back :)

Grand Purl Baa said...

See what happens when you go away....

and come back again.

There's a PARTY!

LERVE the autumnal colours. Looking forward to the canines and the knitting.

Silly girl! What were you thinking?!

eClaire said...

Great to have you back. The leaves are great!

shannon said...

i understand what you mean. i've not been writing at my blog much lately either. for me it became an issue of just wanting to live life, instead of write about it. i fear i am missing things, tho. blogging helped me remember. know what i mean?

pat said...

Pretty photo - our leaves have all drifted to the ground...now waiting for snow!
It's nice to step back from blogging every once in awhile!

T-Mom said...

I'm glad you decided to come back. Reading a blog like yours is like getting a letter from a friend.

Carrie K said...
