Well Look Who's Here! Welcome November!
Well, here you are November. I knew you were coming, but I am surprised
just the same. Look at you. You brought some clouds with you and a bit
of wind. How nice to finally see you after all of this time. In years past
I always dread seeing you. Not this year, I am thankful for your
arrival. This year October, decided to stay like September and keep
the warm weather around. I do hope you will bring cold weather.
I have such a hankering for a fire in the wood stove.
I do hope you will bring enough cooler weather to paint the leaves
on the trees. This year, October wanted to stay hidden and there
are hardly any leaves painted red or gold and yellow or orange.
In years past, you only bring brown with you. I hope this year
you will even bring some frost with you to lightly dust the leaves.
It would be nice to see the diamonds sparkling in the early morning
This morning when I turned my calendar and saw that
it was your month, November I am so filled with
thankfulness at the joy of your coming. I know that I will
be sitting and dreaming in front of a warm fire. I know that
the lights will be on and the candles lit and castles will
be being built in my mind.
It is so nice to meet you today, November, I hope you
live up to all that I have planned for you this year. Please,
don't go as fast as October, but slow down a bit and let me
