You know it's time to get ready for winter when you notice that your younger daughter is still wearing shorts when you're donning a leather jacket and shivering. Of course, said daughter was born without nerve endings, apparently, and never gets cold. But it's appearances that matter! What are other parents thinking of me? How did I get so negligent, etc. etc.
So the clothes must go.
The other sign that your house is not yet ready for winter is when you notice that your skin is remarkably dry. And you keep putting moisturizer everywhere but you can't figure it out. And then you realize that your daughters, to whom you gave the job of emptying the dehumidifiers in the summer, are still diligently completing that job, not noticing that THERE IS NO NEED FOR IT ONCE AUTUMN HITS! Agh. Is my tummy ever itchy.
So we obviously need to get out the humidifier and put away the dehumidifier.
But according to Homemaker Barbi, ninety-seven tasks still remain! I've only got two listed here, but you can see her whole checklist. It's pretty cool, and is sure to give you stuff to think about.
Just reading it through made me want to curl up in her house. She keeps hot drink mixes on her dining room table! Yum. And the flannel sheets are on her bed. How cozy.
Of course, life would be cozier if my husband agreed to put the thermostat up above 55 degrees at night, but he won't consent. Luckily we have a warm comforter.
She talks about that, too. So head on over and check it out, and make sure you're ready for Jack Frost!
