After me grumpity-dumping about our extremely cold month of October (temps down to the low 20s), this past week has given us gorgeous days in the 50s, 60s and today we hit the 70s.
Who's trying to gaslight us? I'm not sure my mind (nor body) can make these adjustments.
Our daughter did some outside painting for us today which we didn't dream we'd get done this year. She was on the south side of a small building and as the day progressed, she stripped down to a sleeveless t-shirt, rolled up her pant legs and took off her socks(!) in order to stay comfortable. She may have ended up with a sunburn. Or tan at least.
We had a pile of huge (HUGE) spruce and balsam logs Papa Pea had cut up two years ago. I'm sure they were thinking about becoming punky and useless as firewood, but we hadn't found the time to get them split up this year. With the advent of this spring-like weather (or more like summer up here in the north woods) we were able to get them unstuck from the stack where they had been frozen just a short week ago and today finished getting them split and stacked under cover. That felt good.
I was even able to do some window washing. Truth to tell, I had taken it off my Must Do This Fall list, but there was no way I could avoid it today when that thermometer climbed into the 70s. (Although I sometimes think washing the outside of our windows is wasted effort as after the first rain or snow they seem to look as dirty as before. Anybody else have this problem?)
I think it was late last week that I finished the Thanksgiving-themed X-stitch I've been working on. It's now on a kitchen wall, over the stove. It could/should be a little bigger for that area, but I'm happy with it.
The pattern includes instructions for two other turkeys, one hen and another male turkey in a side view pose. I may do the one of the hen later on. Like next year.
Right now I need to close this post and get back outside to help stack the wood that's in those wheelbarrows. Unless I've stalled long enough that Papa Pea has already done it.
