I guess the title says it all, right?
I heard the forecast, so I picked the last of the green cherry tomatoes to ripen indoors – amazing to be doing that on November 1.
Still have carrots to harvest, but as long as I get them out of the ground before it freezes, I should be good. Probably will do that this week.
This first snow of the year is beautiful, of course. But I wish it had held off a few more weeks. It will now be a long slog until spring.
Indoor pursuits today, until it stops. I expect I will do some knitting – started the black fingerless mitts yesterday, I think they will be hard to work on in artificial light, we will see. I am using Premier’s Deborah Norville yarn – it was the right price and color, but it feels quite rough to me. I hope it will soften with washing. I am making up a pattern based on Pam Allen’s Tern socks, which I am also knitting, and will work on today. And I should get started on some card making, but not sure I will venture upstairs to the craft room today.
The oaks still have lots of leaves on them, so I fear with this heavy snow and high wind we lose power at some point. I guess my first indoor pursuit will be to make sure the cell phones are charged, and to fill some water pitchers.
