More Signs the Season is Changing.....


Early Thursday morning, an unexpected line of precip. rolled thru when the temps were below freezing - resulting in ice on the bridges and overpasses, and that equals a disaster.
It is times like this I am glad I am no longer fighting the perils of rush hour traffic trying to get to and from a job.  Winter weather has definitely arrived ahead of schedule this year, and it is not welcome.   
***** 
Since much colder temps these days, daughter has put her crochet hooks to work while sitting in school pickup lines, waiting for children to get out of scouts or band meetings, or the TVs are tied up with events she is not interested in, etc..
Footies/slippers for one of the kiddos....
and warm throws to curl up with when the temps drop...
Another in progress....
********
She has a vintage candy jar filled with pine cones, cinnamon sticks, faux mini pumpkins and gourds, setting in a vintage/antique (not sure which)  wooden bowl provides a Fall vignette for her kitchen  table.  
The table  where slices of pumpkin pie friendship bread will be on her menu.
Don't like pumpkin? How about apple pie bread ?
Bet a slice of that would be delish with warm caramel sauce drizzled over the top.

A crafty daughter, unfortunately neither myself or daughters knit or crochet.
I'm thinking a slice of the loaf with warm caramel sauce would be very nice, especially with a pot of hot tea alongside.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Glenda.
