It's 10C today. This is somewhat odd for our climate. We've had an incredibly warm fall and have had no snow to date...none. Not even freezing rain. Usually by this time, we've had one or two days where the school buses are cancelled. I'm not complaining. I know the snow is coming. In fact, the weather network says that we'll see it mid week. I have my snow tires on. I bought new winter barn boots. Our cut firewood is piled and ready. When the cold and the snow come, we'll likely be living with it for 4-5 months, so I will count my blessings for the extra time to prepare.
There's no obligations today that we need to leave home for. I picked a couple jobs that needed to be done and we worked as a family to get them done. One job was to replace the mailbox post that was run over by the guy that delivered our logs last month. That was a rather big job, but it's done!
Now our day is meant for relaxation. Comfy clothes, hot chocolate. I've got some handspun yarn soaking in preparation for handpaint that I might get to later. We might watch some of Season 1 of The Waltons that I brought home from the library. Family is coming for supper...picking up Chinese food on the way. Total relaxation is on the agenda!
