November heat wave

Woke today to a foggy morning, then a promise of a beautiful sunny day. The forecast high temperature for today is suppose to be 17 C., our normal high for this time of the year is 9C. Tomorrow more of the same, Tuesday, a bit cooler with possible showers, then Wednesday back to seasonal values. Outdoor chores for this afternoon will include finishing the last minute jobs in the garden to prepare it for winter, and cleaning the inside of my car.

Visiting my Mother tomorrow, so laundry is on the go at the present time. My Father died November 11, 1991, so will also go to his grave tidy up the Summer plants and put on a winter wreath for him.

I am almost finished the International Ploughing Match challenge block that I am doing. I am not very pleased with the way it is turning out, (maybe I'm too hard on myself), but will submit it anyway.

Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful Sunday.


  1. 17C? Holy cow! We had a so so day but we're supposed to get gale force winds tonight and we've been having a lot of rain.. guess that's seasonal for us. We did have a sunny 14C day last week though, it was nice. We're all too hard on ourselves. I have a bad habit of thinking something I do for the first time should turn out perfectly and of course it never does. And sometimes it has nothing to do with my work, sometimes once I get started I just plain don't like it.

  2. I am guessing you are in Southern Ontario then? As I agree this weather is better than we had through the summer!! It's just a shame its brought out all those horrible lady bugs and cluster flies again. I was bitten I don't know how many times on Sunday with the lady bugs.
