Three Day Autumn?

Well, I must say that was a short season. Let's see, we had summer weather until the end of September, then a few cooler, more colourful days that felt like autumn last week, and now yesterday, we woke up to wintry conditions, including icy roads, snow blowing everywhere, and winds that bite your nose and cheeks with a vengeance.

So we're hunting up winter coats and gloves, not to mention cozy slippers and long sleeved sweaters. Ah, but that's okay. I like cozy slippers and sweaters. And, it's good weather for hot apple cider, not to mention sitting down to my mom's homemade sauerkraut potato soup for lunch.

BTW, according to Ambrose Bierce, a sweater is a garment a child wears when its mother feels chilly.

On that note, I wish you a beautiful day.


  1. Oh my!

    Stay snug and warm!!♥

  2. Well, we haven't had snow yet, at least not in the valleys, but it has been cold! Of course, we are a little farther south than you...Keep warm!

  3. Sauerkraut potato soup. I love both of those things but never had them together. Got a recipe to share?

  4. We've been watching your chilly Alberta temperatures. Most unusual! Hopefully, things will warm up a bit before winter really sets in.

    Happy Thanksgiving weekend, Brenda.


  5. Hello Brenda, I had to return the favor and come visit your wonderful blog! I did a double-take when I saw your picture. You look amazingly like my friend Brenda from Virginia. Please send some of that wintry weather my way if you'd like!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving....ah yes we are having snow and cold and all that comes with winter. The wind today was brutal and it is snowing again now. I am cosy by the fire watching football so don't mind at all, I just don't like driving on the highways when it is snowing.
    ........:-) Hugs

  7. winter is just testing you, bet autumn returns at least for a few days...

  8. Well, with snow so early I guess you can decorate for Christmas (and not feel guilty about it) and make the season last longer!!! LOL! ~ Stay Warm and Blessed ~ Violet

  9. Yup, soup weather is definitely here! Off to make my version of Zuppa Toscana..... can't wait! Have a lovely day!

  10. Wow! Snow!
    It's fun to hear about the differnt climates from all over.
    We've had some really nice weather.

  11. Brenda you're awesome. Have a good day and keep staying warm.

  12. Brrr! Keep warm up there -- lots of that soup will help...
