On to November

Around the Fire Pit
November 1, 2018
It arrived yesterday. The eleventh month of the year announced its beginning with a beautiful day that saw shirt-sleeve weather and an over-all pleasant evening.

Sunset happens earlier, but that meant that the fire pit was in use for a longer time. 

We enjoyed the arrival of the evening around the fire with neighbors and, of course, some wine. 

The basement project was on hold and for this one evening, we just enjoyed the mild weather and time with neighbors. It is amazing how wine and munchies can transform a hectic day into a relaxing and enjoyable evening.

The best part, however, was the warmer temperatures and the fact that now we can actually sit in the yard without being besieged by hordes of mosquitoes. The weather was so mild that we even saw a couple of bats slicing through the air in search of a meal.

What a great way for November to begin. 

We have a very busy month ahead and have decided that the decking project for the fire pit will be a springtime endeavor. Until then, we will enjoy evening fires from the ground under the lights.
