Preparing for Winter

Happy Monday!

I’ve decided to start blogging regularly again. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and now that it’s fall in Kentucky I am spending more time at home and do what I call cocooning.

It’s something I do every year about this time. Even though our new camper has a heated underbelly and we can camp in colder temperatures, it doesn’t make it a four season camper. This causes me to stay snuggled up inside my house and really hanker down for the winter.

The winter weather in Kentucky is supposed to be snowy and colder than last year which I’m 100% down for!

According the Farmer’s Almanac it appears to be true!

Do y’all ever look at the almanac? We do in Kentucky! I love mine.

Eddy and I are watching the weather closely because we might be able to squeeze one more camping trip in December before Christmas…we will see!
