Preparing for November

Halloween is behind us once again. Today we welcome in a new month.

Where did October go? The early darkness, the colder evenings and talk of Christmas fast approaching. November is the month to gather all that it takes to keep us warm, comfy and content in our homes.
Firewood, wooley socks, flannel sheets, cozy throws and lots and lots of tea.
I was gifted a box of assorted tea-bags and this one was delicious.

This tea-cup can be used for loose tea or a bag.
I love tea-cups that have a lid for everyday use. We never really sit down to drink tea during our busy days. It just follows us around so a lid will keep it hot.

My blue and white dishes are  all-season.
and it's raining  today so I just may have to dust them up again. "Oh darn."

Now that Audrey has slept off the shock and horror of last night's trick or treaters, she wants to show you how nice her belly hairs have grown in since her spay day.

"Yes, Audrey. That's a fine tummy."

So I'm getting my dishes ready and Audrey has her box lined with a soft cushion for the colder month ahead.
