Well except now for this whole week, 7 days. All of us. Today my youngest son woke up sick. It will be 12 hours of very sick. Okay, what am I thankful for today. Well, that it is my last sick person in the house. I cleaned all day Tuesday and Wednesday, washed every thing that could be washed, I have even cleaned the fridge. So I am thankful that we are finally at the tail end of this thing. We got it over with before the real flu season starts.
I am thankful today that it is November. November to me is brown, lots of shades of brown. While in my mind October is red and yellow and orange with very blue skies. November comes in and with it foggy days and getting to burn fires in the wood stove. The time changes on Sunday so that is hard because the days do seem to stay dark. So I burn candles to keep away the gloom. Did you know that is a Charles Dickens word? There was no word gloom or gloomy until he thought it up. He thought up lots of words that are in our language. Like Scrooge. Just had to add that there.
I might as well say, I am thankful for Charles Dickens. I love reading him in November. I think it would be a good time to start Bleak House. My favorite.
I hope you have a lovely start to November,
