Being laid up with a bum foot for the past 7 weeks (yes, it's been that long!) has put a serious crimp in my photo-taking. But one early December morning, I noticed the bushes by our front window had finally changed into their autumn colors. And - bonus - they were adorned with tiny glittering dew drops.
A photo opportunity not to be missed! I dusted off my camera, and hobbled outside.
Usually by December, most of the leaves around here are long gone. But this fall's unseasonably warm weather has delayed everything, including the leaf drop.
It was sooo nice to be able to use my camera again. And, lucky for me, I didn't have to travel very far.
My foot is healing, but it's been a long, slow road. I still can't walk very far without it swelling up and feeling uncomfortable. However, tonight I was able to get a shoe on for the first time in weeks. So that's progress. I'm hoping to be able to start driving again soon - maybe even this weekend. And maybe - just maybe - I'll be able to ski in January (if our mountains ever get some snow...) Fingers crossed!
But running and hiking will likely have to wait another couple months. Since I've finally run out of current pics, I'll be dipping into my archives for blog material. It'll be some good stuff - trust me!
In the meantime, enjoy the last of Portland's fall colors for 2014.
