Big rain day

Although Portland is known for being rainy, mostly it is a gentle rain called the "Oregon Mist" and you can get away without an umbrella.  But not so much today.  Today it is RAINING.

For Halloween...

I didn't know porcupines could be so cute.

Fun little quilt

The colors are not quite right... the photo is fine in Picasa but kind of weird here.


This is a little better.  I like how the patterns and colors bleed into each other...


Short Eagle Creek Hike

It was a beautiful day for a hike.  The air smelled wonderful.

Wouldn't Aunt Clara love these doorknobs?
