It’s here, and we’ve even had our first snow flakes.
The plants have been deadheaded, the grasses cut back, furniture and containers stored, raised beds cleared out, some leaves composted, chicken run covered, mowers treated, and now it’s time to settle in for the winter months.
Those indoor projects that were put off are back on the to-do-list including redoing a very large warm window covering and a couple of throw quilts.
We also finished a door at the top of a stairway that turned out great. There was no door jamb so we started by constructing one. We also wanted the door to fold back flat against a very small wall so we purchased special full access hardware from Johnson Hardware. It looks good, and it works great.
November also holds special days. Today there’s election day – thank heavens the ads and constant phone calls will stop. Veteran’s Day which means remembering and bringing in the Flag for the icy months ahead. Then Thanksgiving, preparation for Christmas decorations, and my birthday.
That sweet little guy that use to hold my hand while crossing the street is turning 9.
He plays a mean video game, rocks an electric guitar, can paddle a kayak, pull a bow, still beats me every time at Monopoly, and can carry on an extremely intelligent conversation on a variety of relevant topics.
Happy 9th Birthday handsome and may you have many, many more. 🙂
What does the month of November hold in store for you?
