I looked at a recent post about how September passed so quickly. Well...October passed even more quickly and now we're a week into November. Yikes. I write that because there is still so much to do and time seems to be building momentum. Despite my busy October, I found some time to garden a little and read the first Harry Potter book (and vote--I can't believe I remembered). My little plants have perked up lately due to the rain and change of temperature. Yard-wise, I'm really looking forward to my next project: a little grape arbor with a bench underneath (maybe I'll add some lights too?) As for Harry Potter, I absolutely loved it and I definitely see the appeal. The next two books are waiting to be read, but alas, I still don't have time right now. The plan is to finish all of the books, watch the movies, and then see the final movie when it comes out in July.
