I still have coleus and basil growing that I didn't cover. So, although I scraped my windshield and my car thermometer hit 36 degrees, the frost was spotty enough that protected areas in my yard did not hit 40 degrees; the critical temperature for both basil and coleus.
I have produce still covering every counter and table, although I have been using every spare minute to chop, cook, can, and freeze.
This morning is a bit overcast and the weather people are predicting some rain for Sunday. The days next week appear to be slated to be those crisp clear mild days of fall which autumn lovers adore. So what better than a cruise in the car to take in the day?
...today is the village's Classic Car Show.
This event held each fall has become quite the event. Running my son to Madison to hook up with his dad last night I missed the street dance and car cruise. The Kiwanis have sponsored a wonderful street decorating event featuring scarecrows and corn shocks sponsored by area businesses. The decorations are quite delightful and will be the subject of a slide show on my blog and the village website in the next day or two, so be sure to catch that.
Today, I will spend some time, that precious commodity, supervising activities in the children's activity tent.
