It is a perfect fall day but breezy.
I finally cleaned out the bottom freezer drawer of the refrigerator....didn't gain much space, but did take some heavier things out. Chickens gained another bowl of goodies.
Sorted and organized two outside freezers.
DH is working out. When he gets back we will head back to Lowe's to pick up the paint for the bathroom and the back porch.
Made the trip to Lowe's and got the paint; I hope to start the bathroom today.
We had to make a side trip to Verizon; my cell phone died and I knew DH was due for a free replacement...........long story short I got him one exactly like he was using but just had to upgrade for me................now I have a learning curve. I could just kick myself!
A beautiful day but I spent it inside painting the bathroom...........I think the paint is too dark. It looks good, but too dark, much darker than it seems on the wainscoting on the back porch. I could have diluted it with some white...don't know why I didn't. I think I am out of the practice of painting. I haven't done any for several years.

It went pretty smoothly until I had to reassemble the vanity light fixture that was in the way. I turned one more turn on on the the light sockets and sparks shot out. I will have to turn off the power, remove the entire fixture and see if it is fixable. I am not looking forward to that project. But we need the light...........now.
I may take a picture..............or not. I did.

Another nice day predicted but in the 60's instead of the 70's.
I froze three quarts of the mincemeat and made butter after skimming and bottling yesterday's milk.
This is embarrassing. When I cleaned out the freezer drawer, I found a package of frozen mincemeat cookie dough from December of last year! I baked them and they were very tasty. I added some cream cheese icing.

Veteran's Day, I time to remember all our men and women who serve and who served to keep America free. My husband served in the Marines...not during wartime, thank God.
Another warm fall day.
I painted the guest bathroom floor today with the same paint I used several years ago. Now I will let it cure for a few days before applying at least 2-3 topcoats of polyurethane.

I made fresh tortillas and we had a sort of steak fajita for lunch.

We got a nice shower this morning and a cool down is predicted.
I made sweet rolls. We will keep out two and the rest will go in the freezer for company over Thanksgiving.
Finally caught up with this week's journal.
