There is a gentle rain falling on this early November morning. I was getting ready to do the morning work but didn't want to turn on the lamps. The dim, dreariness of the outdoors was almost charming.
I have to take care of Grandbaby in just a little while. When he wakes up, all other activities must be dropped, for baby must have all my attention. So please forgive me if this writing stops abruptly.
Mister and I did a little shopping last evening. We had a tight budget for groceries this week because we had some other necessary expenses that took quite a bit of money. It will be better in a few days.
I have all kinds of things to cook and bake; but plan to be quiet and enjoy the rainy day. It puts one in a mood for just reading by the window, and having a simple day without any worries.
I baked cornbread to go with a late afternoon lunch yesterday. I will bake a pumpkin pie (frozen) this morning. It brings a warming sense of happiness because it brings a delightful scent to the kitchen.
I still have to clean the parlour and work on the kitchen, but wanted to have a quick little visit with you.
Have a wonderful day!
