Gray November

 November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear.
- - - Sir Walter Scott "Marmion"

No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
- - - Thomas Hood

November always seemed to be the Norway of the year.
- - - Emily Dickinson

November is the most disagreeable month in the whole year.
- - - Louisa May Alcott

How sad would be November if we had no knowledge of the spring!
- - - Edwin Way Teale

It doesn't look like much does it?  But here are the more recent pictures of cleaning up, fixing up, replacing

Here is the big guy working on the holes in the garage

the windows from inside,
the old, pretty ones, with the charming wavy glass

And the new, state of the art, no wind or rain or anything is getting through these, refinance the house windows.

Not going to lie, I will miss the old widows, the little spring thingies that held them open

the pretty wavy glass

But on the plus side, they ALL open.  I realized there were 3 windows that we had NEVER opened in this house!  Next time I'll show you my new kitchen sink window.  It opens! and no cold air comes in!
Plus, the big guy knew how much I loved those old windows so he saved a few of them for me.  Now I get to plan an art project around them!
