Well, it’s not snowing here yet but the trees are definitely losing their color and there are pools of oranges and reds on the sidewalks. Autumn this year was fabulous!
I confess Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I have been listening to Christmas music, not so much “Santa Claus is coming to town” but more “Ave Maria”. I am not sure why I stumble over November each year but as I was reading my journal last night, I realized that Novembers are usually hard for me. The Christmas music helps me take everything down a notch and when I’m driving in traffic, belting out “O Holy Night”, it really does decrease the stress level, at least for me, I don’t know about the guy next to me although he probably is entertained.
Through my Reader which holds updates from my favorited blogs, I have enjoyed catching up with my fellow bloggers tonight and I am sorry I didn’t have time to have a leisurely stop and comment on each one. Because I have been preoccupied with other things, I did have quite a number of posts to read and now it feels good to be caught up on everyone’s news.
I have also just added a number of new tweets. I am hoping to keep adding new fairs and events over the Christmas season. If you search under “Christmas”on my blog, there are a number of shopping opportunities I have written about over the years and I think most of them recur yearly so just have a peek at the websites and hopefully you’ll be able to attend them this year.
Thanks to those of you who dropped by while I was taking a bit of a break, not intentionally but it just happened that time got away on me and before you know it, it’s the middle of November.
Wishing you a joyous season of reflecting on the goodness of life and hopefully spending time with family and friends. ~Alison
