Yesterday was a true fall day. Sunny, cool, breezy. Almost too cool, but it is November. So after church, while Kirsten and Lanie did homework Melody and I helped Xyra outside.
First we collected and put away the Halloween decorations.
Give me a hand with this ghost.
Now this one.
This pile is too big for us. Xyra!
No worries. I have them.
Then we raked the leaves out of the garden.
And put away the garden ornaments.
Isn’t this little hedgehog cute?
Then we put the potted plants in the garage for the winter.
Let’s get the parsley first.
This is kind of heavy.
That’s why we’re doing it together.
Now for the geranium.
I hope it lasts through another winter.
Yeah, it did great last year.
Awesome Cafe and Great Tea
Also yesterday Xyra visited a great place in town called Java Good Day Café. She had a really good cup of Earl Grey tea. The brand was Impra and it was loose leaf. Since good brands can be brewed more than once she brought her tea bag home we made some this morning. (I can't wait to go and see the cafe too.)
I found the bag. The cup is washed and ready to go.
Looks like we forgot that these can drip. Oh well.
Have a great day!
