Fall Mode

Long weekend is over now. Plans that were to happen tomorrow have faded away sparing up time to get down to some real work. My goal for October is to clean the kitchen cupboards and rid of items I do not need or want. I am sure a box will come out of them. Then to head under the main floor stairs and clean out my sewing patterns, books, photo albums and needlework. I am hoping to make good progress and get rid of items I have had over 5 years and have not touched. Then I hope to insulate the north wall under the stairs with blue insulation boards to help with the heating.

The woodstove came on last night, as the temperatures dipped below the freezing mark. No snow though! However I did have to scrap frost off the wind shield in the morning.

So this means a clean-up of the garden now. Anything damaged by frost will have to go to the chickens who will be leaving here in a weeks time for the freezer.

we had to put the wood stove on yesterday as well as today.

No heating yet though, so that's good.

Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

My chimney sweep is coming today. Then I can burn wood. It's pretty cold at night.

our furnace is on the blink and it's COLD inside - down to 60 I think. My husband looked at it, but we have to call the repairman.

Hope your Thanksgiving was nice!

Time to prepare for winter, isn't it? We're in the South and still having some warm days, but it won't be long before we have to use the fireplace. Time goes by so fast. . .

I've been doing much kitchen cabinet cleaning myself. I've been weeding out the food that is unhealthy for us to eat as well as food I can no longer eat due to dietary issues. I have a few other "cooler weather chores" planned for the future as well.

Anyway, stay warm and have a blessed day!
