Take 12! November

Today was kind of a rushed day-new projects that are having bumpy starts and yard work that needed to be taken care of-so I found myself looking for patterns and color as I worked outside–nature is so incredibly abundant when it comes to that–I fear it is my eye that does not do it the kind of justice it deserves sometimes-

5 Things I Learned Today

1) Violas actually do better than Pansies during the winter weather.

2) If wooly worms turn black, it means a hard winter is ahead-we found one that was black and brown-the poor guy could have been confused.

3)  The first Pepsi was created and served in New Bern, North Carolina in 1898–I say, meh . . . Coca Cola all the way–though a cold bottle of Cheerwine can really hit the spot.

4) White pumpkins are easier to carve than orange ones-supposedly they make for better pies too.

5) North Carolina could have a big winter depending on the exact track of El Nino and the Southern Jet Stream. Yikes!!
