November is taking control now. It’s raining a lot, and there’s quite a strong wind blowing as well – claiming the leaves from the trees. At the moment we’re not spending very much time in the garden, though we should probably be preparing for winter. The potted plants need to be cut down and moved inside before we have night frost. I’m not terribly good at getting that done – I love working with the plants when we’re moving towards summer, and I can look forward to a season of blossoming flowers in crocks and pots. Preparing them for winter is different, but I really ought to get it done.
Frida has been sick these past few days, throwing up and not eating at all. It’s pretty much the first time she has been really sick since she was born – she has had a few colds but that’s it, really. Sunday was bad, yesterday was better, and today she had her oatmeal for breakfast – now she’s sleeping.
It’s really dark outside today – and inside as well. A perfect day for lighting candles and drinking tea – I was thinking about sewing a bit, but I actually don’t really know what I want to sew. Can you believe it? I should probably go through my stash – that always seems to inspire me. I think I’ll put on some music.
