November 007

(Ooops. Almost missed it.)
This November is going out wet and windy. Even Buddy, who wants to go for a walk even if it is pouring, couldn't wait to get home from our daily mile last night.
What is November?
It is picking up candy wrappers for the first week of the month from all the Halloween candy.
It is going to the grocery at 9:00 pm to miss the crowds shopping for the Thanksgiving meal.
It is wearing hand knit socks in the evening because at least then it's getting cool enough.
It is watching the line of autumn colored trees work its' way down the mountains until the valley trees start changing color as well.
It is watching the dog's fur fluff out in the rain and humidity.
It is winterizing the cooler and getting the furnace ready to go on.
It is Nana's birthday again.
It is bare trees against a cloudy gray rainy sky.
It is ripping my hair out again in the annual frenzy of "Why did I wait so long again to start Christmas shopping/knitting?'"

That first photo - is that a turtle amidst the greenery? And I love your pavement-puddle mirror shot. Wayy cool!

You have been so good about the 007 dozen! I have really enjoyed them! Thank you.

No turtles, just reflections of water pooling. We had a turtle that lived in the yard, though, several years ago.

Our November here has been cold, rainy and snowy and grey, nothing much to be happy about - actually it was like the last pic you posted, just with a bit of snow in the background ;) But with reading through your impressions of November, I realized there's some positive things about it too, like the fact that we can wear handknit socks again ;) There's always something positive to everything, isn't it?

Love the picture of rainy puddles! We get so little rain in California I love to see pictures! You forgot that November is a month to get stuffed! Yeah for weather cool enough to wear handknit socks!
