Hope Everyone had a Good Thanksgiving.
Today is black Friday and this is one person who
is not going near the cities. Some of the stores
were opening at 4 a.m. this morning. It may be
a good opportunity for those who need to or
enjoy going out shopping that early, or who may
have to just have that one bargain that is on their
shopping list. Some enjoy the experience, I am just
not one of them. After working years in retail I
really do not need to relive the experiences, they
are deeply ingrained upon my memory.
Good luck to all of you brave souls, shoppers and
It is hard to believe that the month of November is
almost at an end and December is just a few days
away. Where did the month go?
My Grandma use to say that "the older you get
the faster the days fly by" and as a younger girl
I would laugh and shake my head thinking that it
was a silly thing to say, time is time.
But as the years passed and I become the older
member of the family what she said has become
true and as the older I get
"the faster the days seem to fly by".
The Thanksgiving cacti have bloomed, the gardens
put to bed and our mail boxes are being crammed
with those great plant and seed catalogs with the
titles "New for 2009" to which we plant-o-holic's
cannot resist. After all we can always find room for
one, or two, or three, or......
So we prepare to say goodbye to November and
hello to December and Winter.
And November goes
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And the earth sink to rest
Until next spring."
