It looks like a gray day.

This picture, taken at the grounds of Campbells Pottery Barn near Cambridge Springs, was taken on a June Day but it looks like a gray day, like November usually is.  And right now it is November and we aren’t having a dismal, gray, November day.  It’s bright and cheery and sunny, very uncharacteristic of this usually gray month.  Bright sunshine makes such an uplifting difference in the day!

It is cold and frosty this morning, but the sunshine promises to warm up the ground a lot for this afternoon.  Perhaps this is a day in which I can do a little more yard work.  Most of the work is done for going into winter, but there always is more that can be done in my yard.  I didn’t get all the fallen leaves out to the curb for the leaf pick up, so I am trying now to put the rest of the leaves in my compost pile.  It makes for some good exercise and I feel better after a workout like that.

Do you enjoy the outdoor work more than house work?  I do.  I would rather rake leaves than dust furniture.  However, both should be done and I will feel better when I get those tasks taken care of.

How wonderful that it isn’t a gray day as one would expect from the month of November.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    I enjoy outdoor work more than housework also.

    Lorraine, it is so much more satisfying to work outdoors on a nice day. On a snowy day like today, it may be more satisfying to work indoors! It’s just a little snow, though. No need to shovel yet.
