The frost came, the last of the hanging on flowers have since wilted and are finishing dying as we type. 🙂 There are a few leaves hanging on yet to the trees. We’ve had to clear the gutter spouts a few times, but mostly, it’s almost over. The loveliness of Fall colors is fading. Today and tomorrow, we will still be blessed with warm temperatures, but the forecast is for rain and possibly a bit snow mixture and colder weather so the last hangers on will blow away with those winds. Then it will be the time of year with the pretty Fall colors gone but yet the winter has not arrived in full force with the beautiful white colorings. But meanwhile, we have a wonderful Thanksgiving to enjoy and bring to mind the many things we are thankful for, and then there’s Christmas shopping, yay!! Pretty colorful lights everywhere you drive.
As we head into the holiday season, have a wonderful Thanksgiving. As my children have aged, have children of their own, family obligations to their significant others at the holidays as well as to hubby and me, the Thanksgiving dinner has dwindled. So there may be haters of the holiday shopping, but as I won’t have family at my dinner table this year, it is a new tradition for me. I’m going pre-Black Friday and Black Friday shopping. Hubby and I will eat something small or perhaps just go out somewhere. In my defense of the pre-Holiday shopping, I’m now 70, and I’ve cooked Thanksgiving dinner for his family, my parents, my children, and even their family when they married since I was 28, so I really am tired of the cooking, and as I worked also in those years, I never did the Black Friday shopping. I was too exhausted. haha
Oh, and I might add that Thanksgiving Day is our 53 year wedding anniversary. It doesn’t always fall on Thanksgiving, but in retrospect it somehow gets meshed in there and no celebration really so not sure why we ever picked the 24th of November.
So, I’m wishing everyone Thanksgiving Blessings, lots of Turkey or whatever you share to eat, restful naps afterward, and lots of family hugs.
I cannot believe it is already heading to Thanksgiving and the end of the month. It just started.
