November

Things are very busy in November.  NaNoWriMo began and that takes up a lot of time (though I must write that I beat my own record and wrote 10,0001 words in one day this past week--if I was only close to 'the end' of my novel, I might be feeling home free).

Paul's been splitting wood. We're burning through what we thought was a pretty good stash of wood faster than we anticipated and aren't sure we'll make it too far into next month, let alone next year!  Yikes.

The bees are are tucked in and put away for the winter.  Bree is now suspiciously quiet, I feel even too quiet for the cold, and I am worried for her survival already.  But we can only wait and see...Spring is just around...ummm...a few corners.

We've begun to delve into the freezer and are beginning our first real test of how far we can actually get with what we've stored.  I'm hoping to make it to 'WinterFare' in February!  I don't think we'll have to buy meat or eggs...isn't that a start?  And if we were better about using things from the freezer, that would help too!  But we seem to be getting better and better--there is, at least, an almost full freezer and more local meats on the way.

We're awaiting the first snow...maybe next week, but hopefully not early next week (because I'm not ready at work for any serious snow days).  In the meantime, I'm still occasionally hanging clothes on the line!

Troy is most definitely waiting for snow!!!
