November

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Today begins November.
The month of excitement and dread.
The month where you look forward to the holidays, but dread the darkness that winter brings.
We have less than a week 'til we set our clocks back.
But only 23 days until Thanksgiving and all the sweet, delicious pies.
November, I've got high hopes for you.  So don't let me down.


I saw the lovely arch
Of rainbow span the sky,
The gold sun burning
As the rain swept by.

-   Elizabeth Coatsworth, November

Here here to the high hopes... although I'm just gearing up for summer rather than bunkering down fir winter... if you get chilly, stop by for some bright blue sky and palm trees!

(although it's your shots that have me envious right now! Fall is beautiful)
