The calendar may say November, but boy oh boy,.....the wintry weather has arrived. It was a cold blustery day as I traveled to Arcola and Amish country with 3 friends (Claire, Donna Rae and Margie) for shopping and High Tea. We started out in the country at the bakery and then grocery store followed by the cute shops in Arcola. And also visited the visitor's center where Margie bought a broom (Arcola is the broom capital of the world AND, the original home of Raggedy Ann and Andy).

After shopping, we were off to The Flower Patch B & B for High Tea

We arrived back home, unloaded all our packages and it started snowing and the winds were soo strong!
Met Mark at the door with my stuff and was off to wrap gifts for our Monday Night Friends "Adopt-a-Family." After that we had supper at CJ's. I was sooo stuffed from the High Tea, so just had a cup of very good cream of asparagus soup.

Left CJ's and off to the YWCA where I met Mark and we watched Liam and Connor at their swimming lesson along with Anne and Patrick.

It's good to be home and out of the elements - burrrr.... "Baby it's COLD outside" as the song goes!!!
