Things are calming down

Now that soccer is over for the kids —5 days a week of soccer was killing me!—I hope to have more time for blogging, baking, and reading.  My yearly reading total is pretty pathetic. And my TBR Challenge participation has been pretty half-assed.

Time to kick it in gear.

I missed most of the autumn, and we're expecting a winter storm today.

The birds are getting crazy busy gathering what food they can.

What's the weather like where you are?


  1. Typically November is cold, damp, and rainy. But thanks to climate change we've had a solid week of sun and moderate temps (low 50s). I feel guilty even saying that given what happened to the east. My parents and siblings were among those without power for a week. I love your bird picture!!

    1. @Phyl,

      I know I feel guilty complaining about the weather now, too. But the cold weather always means I do more baking...partly to warm up the house. :) I don't know what kind of bird that is, but he sure was busy yesterday.
