November entered quietly. A beautiful sunny Sunday. Instead
of a bike ride, Ron and I decided on a long walk along the levy
in town. This picture was just calling me, so peaceful. The town
park is on the right and the little red building is the Barn in the
Park, a local civic theater. It was a warm gracious day and our
pleasant morning wrapped us in "feel-good" thoughts.
"Oh the joy we just found by swinging up and down!"
Yep we couldn't resist. Ron got me started with a big push
and we were off. He got a lot higher than I did.
November also brought along the season of leaves, leaves…let
me say it again.. leaves. They're falling folks and when they fall
you've got to rake them up. I have my trusty best friend--the
blower. This ranks up there as my most favorite tool. I even put
it to use in the winter for blowing snow off the driveway and
Mama Hen and her chicks decided they wanted to
help with cleanup….
November also brings Standard Time, so we'll see it getting dark
a lot sooner. And there are still some outside chores to be done,
so can't quite settle in yet. Complete those tasks that will help your
house and yard make it though the winter season. *Clean the
gutters and downspouts, *Finish the garden cleanup, *Store the
mower (make sure gasoline has been used up), *Inspect the
chimney and the furnace, *Seal and weatherstrip. Enough
already…I get it.
Get out and enjoy the outside before the pendulum of
temperature swings to the big chill. Here is a picture I took one
early evening as the sun was setting, the red sky was
breathtaking. My photo in no way shows how spectacular the
thyme for gathering, sharing, readying ourselves for the next
two months of holiday/family thyme. Here is my Sharing Jar,
what it's all about. You may copy it, or save the image and
print it on heavier paper to frame if you would like.
