November starts tomorrow

Well, here it is another month gone,
with November starting tomorrow.
Where has this year gone to?

We had cold temps this week, in the high 40's,
feeling like it was in the low 40's with the windchill factor.
No frost for us though, like some of you have had.

Here are a couple of frosty pictures
from the beginning of December last year.

Louis Phillipe is the name of the rose.

November is a spinner

Spinning in the mist,

Weaving such a lovely web

Of gold and amethyst.

In among the shadows

She pins till close of day,

Then quietly she folds her hands

And puts her work away.

Enjoy getting ready for the holiday season.

Try not to stress over things.

Live each day with love, laughter and as much grace and hope as possible.

Thanks Cameron. My goal is to have a lovely garden such as your creation.

Each of your posts I take as personally directed to me, FlowerLady. I know they're general musings, but I pretend they're just for me.

Nell, that is very sweet. I don't think of writing to a group that's for sure, and each posting is personal from me also.

I can't believe it's November, either. I was just pointing out to my husband that the summer went by way too quickly, but the first quarter at our school has gone by just as fast.

At this time of year, I am usually excited for the end of December to get here, so the days can start getting longer again.

Thanks for the good words about the holidays coming up. The pictures are lovely, too.

Good morning Sue ~ Time sure has a way of zipping by the older we get. When we were young, we wanted the time to move along at a faster rate. Now we want time to slow down a little so that we can enjoy more of each day.

May we live in the 'now' of each and every day.
