Random Sentences

Firstly, an update on my brother: He was transferred this week to an acute rehabilitation hospital and is working hard to gain back his strength. After two strokes it will take time; the doctors are saying he should make a full recovery. Very good news!!

So now I think I can get back into some regular daily activities including this blog! And cleaning house, playing with my dogs, baking and crafting for the upcoming holidays, laughing. It has been a while since there was much laughter here, as you can imagine.

Every morning now there is heavy frost. I do not laugh at having to scrape the car. But the beauty of a frosty morning cannot be denied.

And now it is time, this weekend, to set our clocks back. (Remember also to change the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors!). I guess winter really is coming. I would enjoy a much longer autumn, really, don't you agree?

Today is my Good Friend Dee's birthday! She is my fellow bird-lover, garden buddy, dog fanatic. Many happy wishes are flying off to her!!

My HH and I broke down and watched the movie "Season of the Witch".  Blech. And not really about witches. Not much else to say about it.

We still have to prepare the gardens for winter, so far behind in that respect. Also, a big load of firewood will be dumped in our driveway. It is going to make me very tired watching HH and nicarus stack it all. (ahem).

Upcoming here at Wiccan Writes: the giveaway I was unable to do in October; some chatter about books; my contributions to The Deepest Well blog Witches Circle conversations; preparations for Yule; a couple of new original short stories; and, oh so much more.

Have a super Saturday!  Blessed Be!!

Good to hear your brother is doing well. I too find the morning frost beauitful(though not on the car). I am happy you will be able to get more things done. I cna't wait till i am finished with my house so I can sit back and enjoy.

Thanks for the thoughts on "Season of the Witch". I'll probably watch it so I can see how bad it is.

November Blessings, V.

It seems You'll get the long winter this time and we the short one, still really warm and nice here. Gives me some problems when it comes to sowing trees and bushes, there's a risk that they will start to early now.

Have a great day!

A suggestion/request for you??? I would love to hear about how you prepare a garden for winter. I just bought a house two years ago and I'm still learning how to properly care for a vegetable garden.

It might just make a great blog posting... (hint,hint!)
