Two days of non stop wind has stripped the trees of all their golden leaves. I was just starting to enjoy them and now they are gone. I'm sad.
I've been watching all my bloggy friends trade in fall for winter but I'm not ready even if my Thanksgiving flowers are ready for tossing.
I've still got a few days left in November and some nice fall projects to keep me busy.
I've also got fruitcake to bake. It's been fruitcake weather for a while now but my oven's busy with soap. No, I don't cook it in there. I just keep it warm with the pilot light so it gets nice and hard. I should be done with it all the soap on Sunday so I've been gathering the ingredients. I'm making enough this year to last all winter. A piece of cake and a cup of tea in the afternoon is my idea of a good time on a cold, dark day.
Speaking of good times. The Mister is down with a bad cold and he found this amazing booze to see him through it. Our doctor recommends bourbon for a cold. Seriously, and this is some good stuff. I'm using the port to help ward off any germs. It's my go to winter tonic. Both of us can't be down and out at the same time. We did that with the stomach bug last New Year's and that was NO fun.
