We had our first frost last night and it was a doosy. It was a killing frost, coating the environment with a lovely white. I’m not complaining. It was very late this year, giving us a warm and delightful fall so far. We still have some leaves on trees but I’m assuming those will be dropping fast and the first snow won’t be far behind. There is nothing prettier than the first snowfall and nothing worse than dirty snow.
Mom said the only way to get to the other side is through the angst. Our kitchen renovation starts next week. I’m looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. We will go through another set of holidays with few decorations but by the beginning of next year we should have one of our biggest projects done. All materials are in so there shouldn’t be any supply delays.
Welcome Alexa! The beloved husband has been frustrated because he couldn’t get his favorite sports radio station in his basement workshop. He tried wireless antennas (they didn’t work) and was just about ready to put on an aluminum hat. Then he read that an Echo would be able to wirelessly receive the signal. He’s on it! Now that Alexa is here we will look into what else she can do for us. Unfortunately she can’t do dishes or errands but she can close blinds and lock up. It’s a new world!
