Homemaking Monday : November 12
is damp this morning the promising of a fantastic warm( for November +16C or 66F) and hopefully some sunshine.
I am waiting on the 21 year old, as we are heading to the city for doctor appointments and some winter shopping.
How I would dearly love to just stay home and enjoy this last warm spell before the air is cold and crisp and I am much more inside.
I have a knitting book by the bed on knitting baby socks.

Looking Around the House
I have done a lot of cooking this weekend for a barn raising this week. I had to make enough stew and brownies for 20 men. That is a lot of dishes ! Also need to get some dusting done. The house is clean but don't speak to me about the barn.
