Gone are the golden leaves of fall. Replaced with brown bushes or bare trees. I never really understood the fascination with the approach of spring but the other day driving down the road I got it. Everything is brown. Ok the pine trees are still green as are the junipers and pinions but the oak brush is brown giving everything else a drab look. So, we (ok maybe just me) look forward to winter snows because then its not brown, its white and the green of the trees look so much better with white than with brown. Then we wait for spring. But for now, I wait for snow. Don't get me wrong, brown or not, it is still a beautiful place to live. Quiet, crisp, the wind rustling the trees and the peacefulness.
Life in the forest has been busy and the past few weeks included at trip to Arizona. Always good to see friends and family and even better that it wasn't 110! A little work, a little chemo, a few friends, my sister and her husband, and a great time, albeit a short visit. And thank you sister Deb for taking good care of my boys. Why yes, they did miss me.

Going to go to a ladies brunch this coming week and yes I'm very excited. I was assigned muffins, which most of you know is not my forte, baking, but I'm going to take a fabulous (oh I so hope they turn out) muffin and will post the recipe next time along with photos. I figure if the muffins don't turn out good then next time I'll be asked not to bake. lol.
Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner. Boy oh boy I must get busy. Have some fun events to attend and some serious gift making to do! I'd best get busy.
A couple of pictures of my friendly deer neighbors.

Thats all for now. Thanks for letting me share - another day in the forest.
Love and muffin tops,
