November is the start of getting colder and the leaves all falling off the trees. It’s also the month of my birthday and also Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is always on a Thursday and I was born on a Thanksgiving day. About every 4 years or so, my birthday will be on Thanksgiving day.
We could get snow anytime. I can remember one year at Thanksgiving that we had a real “northeaster” and got over 2 feet of snow. But this time of year at the beginning of November it’s usually just a dusting of snow now and then.
I saw a neat pin on Pinterest that gave recipes for spice blends. They had two blends that I was interested in which are the Chili blend and the Apple Pie blend. Maybe the allspice blend would be good to have. I have some neat little bottles that I got at T J Max that would be perfect for keeping the blends in for the pantry. I put the recipes on my Spice blend board on my Pinterest.
I love the beautiful houses in Woodstock, VT and how they decorate for Fall.
The Creamery in Woodstock has homemade ice cream and mile high apple pie that is just really, really good. You can order whole pies there for Thanksgiving and several times I have ordered a mile high apple pie and their pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. But several times we have just gone in and had a slice of apple pie with vanilla ice cream at the Creamery. So fun and a real treat.
I love how the Woodstock Inn decorates for Fall. So beautiful.
Woodstock is just a beautiful town with lots of picket fences and colonial houses.
The Middle Bridge is across from the Woodstock Inn. There is a big park that is the shape and size of a battle ship between the bridge and the Inn.
I like how L L Bean has monogrammed tote bags. Also their sweaters and jackets are perfect for New England weather.
I saw an idea for a nice little toddy for Fall that is called Bourban Maple Apple-Cider.
Slow cookers are always fun to cook with because you just throw the ingredients in the crock pot and forget it. Then you have a nice supper all cooked for you 8 hours or so later. Soups are always good this time of year.
Samantha Brown had the above luggage on HSN a few days ago. I love the burgandy color and also the extra containers that are sold separately to make packing organized.
The days are getting chilly now. It rained all day today and it’s supposed to rain tomorrow. But the weekend is going to be sunny and cool.
If you turn around in New England, the weather changes.
I like how in the mornings, there is always a mist in the air.
