Good morning, everyone, and welcome to November. Pinch and punch, white rabbits and no returns! There - that should cover the traditional bit.
In years gone by, our cul de sac used to be a hotbed of Halloween jollification with lots of young children and enthusiastic parents. I always opted out - being a teacher at the local school, word would get round and I'd have a lot of little visitors - but they had a good system going anyway. A pumpkin outside meant callers were welcome!
Nowadays, the children have grown up, the parents have stayed and it's generally very peaceful. I tend to turn on the telly, connect my hearing aide via the mini loop system and I'm oblivious to external noises, whether they be door bells or fireworks.
Yesterday was very pleasant with Beth and Alex over for lunch. Beth brought some sewing and I had my knitting and it was peaceful and lovely.
Today . . . look!
Admittedly, I held off picking until this morning so I could say I picked them in November, but even so. I can't ever remember tomatoes in November before.
I will also take some time to plan a few meals for this week and generally get things a bit organised.
Looking good for getting the washing dry. A hot wash is whirling in my machine to put out ASAP.ReplyDelete
Have a good day
It's good today, isn't it. Quite a bit colder but that won't affect the washing all that much.Delete
My washing is almost finished but zero sunshine here = the dryer! A soggy dog walk ahead for me! Half term week NUMBER 2!ReplyDelete
I saw on your blog about a two week half term. How fab is that!!Delete
Enjoy your soggy walk!
Glad you had a lovely weekend and were able to spend time with Beth and Alex. How wonderful to be able to say home grown tomatoes picked in November :)ReplyDelete
I'm going to put my washing out now too x
Mine's just gone out and looks really 'wholesome'! :-)Delete
I hope it stayed dry for you and you were able to hang your washing on the line. It's been raining hard on and off all morning here.ReplyDelete
Tomatoes picked in November ... how wonderful xx
It did, thanks, it was a really lovely day.Delete
It's been a proper drying day here today. Warm and blowy with a hint of sunshineReplyDelete
It felt much more chilly round here - the stiff breeze didn't help but it did help with the washing! :-)Delete
Sounds as if you had the perfect Halloween. We only had a few children here and soon enough those will be grown and gone.ReplyDelete
Nice and quiet, just as I like it really. xxDelete
