It seems the weather has turned the corner on into winter here. I suppose that shouldn't surprise me as it IS the first week of December. I still find that I have to occasionally have to remind myself that I now live in a place that, although mild, has distinct seasons. It's been chilly and wet here the past few days and I've found myself hanging out in the house and drinking hot beverages and doing some baking. On today's agenda is another batch of bread. I've got a new pie recipe I'll share with you later this week. I figured that two recipe's in a row wouldn't be the right thing to do. Especially since my postings are spread a bit thin lately.
Mars has pretty much completed what he can do around here to winterize the place. There is still the window air conditioner unit to contend with but that's just a minor thing. The well house is insulated, all the water pipes are wrapped, and the RV has been skirted with the older tin from the barn. We will be on the lookout for some paint to "pretty" it up with but for now it serves its purpose.The water hoses, yard furniture and various things around the yard are all in the barn and the rabbits have been moved in there as well.
Now I know that for you guys up north this isn't really all that cold but just to give you guys an idea of what type of temperatures I'm accustomed to dealing with this time of year the forecast down in Texas is calling for the 60's during the day and in the mid 40's at night and that's only because they are having a bit of rain moving thru the area! I am really happy to hear that some of my Texas buddies are actually getting some of that wet stuff. Heaven knows they need all they can get down there.
