fading colors

on the needles


I really need new mittens like I need a hole in my head, but I do need a pair of fingerless gloves for when I head out to the chicken coop on these cold days.  My mums are in need of watering I can see by this photo, but it’s been raining pretty good all day today so I don’t think I’ll be needing to water the mums tomorrow. 

With the colder weather upon us I’ve been thinking of new dishes to make, casseroles actually. I have pinned so many food ideas on Pinterest I really need to start making them. I’m thinking if I add one or two new meals a week that would be good. I don’t know about you but I tend to get in a rut now that I’m cooking for only 2, it was so much easier for me when all the kids were home to make meals. My problem now is I make so much we either eat it for a week or I freeze some of it, which is ok for when we’re too busy to cook.  I can’t wait to get started.
