October Woes and Wonders
October 29, 2011 § Leave a comment
October hasn’t been very good to us this year. First we were both sick, then I got sick from a flu shot. In between, catepillars ate my birch saplings. We also had a leak in the kitchen, and a laundry rack broke. Moreover, the green room floor lamp keeled over. Snap. Just like that.
Fortunately, it wasn’t all bad. We bought an electric lawn mower; I’m really excited about that. Our radon mitigation project is moving forwards. (More about that later.) Cider making with Mr. E’s family was, again, great fun. The Design*Sponge at Home book came out. What a great resource! I took my time reading through it to extend the pleasure.
Also, my Etsy art purchases arrived superfast. Kari Herer‘s rabbit print is even more gorgeous in real life than it is on her shop page! And the colors in Betsy McLellan‘s print are simply breathtaking! I just love the scenery.
To top it all, the first snow came on Thursday!
I like snow, but this is really early, even for Northern Massachusetts. For tonight and continuing to tomorrow, they’re predicting 5-10 inches (12-24 cm) of snow accumulation. Yikes!
