The Last of November


Sunday was rainy off and on but still mild. A good day to eat the last of the pumpkin chiffon pie, to put the turkey soup in the freezer, and to spend some time writing.


We don't rush into Christmas -- it'll be a couple of weeks before we put up a tree. I enjoy savoring the last bit of fall -- the burning bushes all aglow, the newly planted pansies blooming, the calm before the storm of all that Yuletide carrying on.

There's all the time in the world, I tell myself, to deal with the Christmas lists . . .gifts, cards, festivities. No need to rush . . .

It may be the turkey tryptophan languor talking. . .

Oh those lucky pansies will look so good in that blue planter! Enjoy taking time to enjoy the season...a novel approach!

With all the beautiful scenes around you I can understand your desire to dawdle a bit.

You are so right. There is time. No need to rush and ruin the holidays. The important stuff will get done and the not-so-important stuff can wait.

You still have touches of green everywhere. It is so great to see. I like your little blue water feature.

I keep meaning to start writing Christmas cards but I hardly seem to have savoured autumn yet either.
