Does This Look Like Fall to You?

I was driving home from work the other day, and it began to dawn on me that this isn't even the middle of November. All the trees should still have leaves on them and some might even have color left. But NO! The majority of the landscape around here, in the middle of the Ozarks, looks like this!
This is the view out my back deck. Yes, there are a few cedar trees, those are evergreens and don't lose their leaves. But most of the trees are barren of leaves....just naked!

I suppose with the plethora of fabric I own, I could probably make muumuus for all the trees and still have some left...you quilters out there know what I'm talking about. But that takes time, especially with the number of trees that populate the woods on our property. Time that I simply do not have - Christmas is coming, you know! And I've not stated on my sewing, knitting, quilting projects for this year.

I guess I could maybe learn PhotoShop really quickly and paint leaves back on the picture so at least I might be the only one to know my trees are buck-naked...since rarely do we have visitors from California, Rhode Island, Arizona, etc. , (You know who you are!) and you'd never know if we had leaves on the trees or not.

Or, I could just ignore those poor naked trees and get on with Thanksgiving and Christmas...it will be spring soon enough, I suppose!

Have a great weekend, folks. It's supposed to rain on Sunday here so we are driving to Fort Leonard Wood to shop for groceries - our once every 8 weeks date!
Thanks for stopping by.

Muumuus?!? Oh...what an amazing brain picture. I love it.

Much prettier than tents!

Ah, yes...but Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday and I'm sure Thanksgiving at the "Ozark Knotwells" will make up for those neck-ed trees!
