Outside My Window...November is coming in windy. And a bit rainy. It hasn't been terribly cold yet, just enough to wear a sweater.
Things I'm Thinking About...Planning some fun Thanksgiving stuff to do with the kids in the week before Thanksgiving. I ordered Eating the Plates and 1621: A New Look at Thanksgiving. I think those will be our starting points, plus a few projects- I have loads of things bookmarked so I just need to narrow down.
On the Farm...I need to get the garlic in this week. No excuses.
In Our Kitchen....I want to make ice cream pie this week with some of the leftover Halloween candy. I made pear jam over the weekend, and I really think it is my absolute favorite kind of jam. A November tradition in the making, I believe.
In Our Homeschool... We did not end up making our Chinese meal for The Story About Ping last week, so that is this week's top priority. James is starting a new handwriting book this week-you can imagine his excitement, ha ha.
Creating....I am working on a pair of wrist warmers. One down, one to go. This is a much quicker project than the afghan was! Speaking of which, here it is. It is super simple. I literally just knit 12 inch squares and sewed them all together. It was pretty forgiving too. I did not get all my squares the same size, but it all knit together fine...just don't look too closely....it definitely has some handcrafted charm;).
A Few Plans For the Week Ahead...Bathroom renovations are underway, forced by a spur-of-the-moment demolition of our old, ugly bathtub. It will be good though, I have waited a long time to see this bathroom redone!
Hope you have a great week!
