November November November
It's November! It's NaBloPoMo! It's Three on Thursday! What's not to love, you know? I know some people think of November as a boring, "filler" month, but it's always been one of my favorites. So today I thought I'd let you know just three of the many many reasons November is a good thing.
1. Desserts. Yep, November is a good month for desserts at our house. The Tim has his birthday during this month, so - birthday cake!! And with Thanksgiving, there is pumpkin pie! We don't generally have dessert a lot of the time, so having two dessert occasions in one month is the best.
2. The weather. (Rather, the weather as it should be. I shall be ignoring the three days of 70-degree temperatures that are supposed to occur in the next five days.) November is the month when fall actually settles in and the coziness of the cool weather begins. Granted, sometimes it can be rainy, but at least around here, that is true of nearly every month in the year. And then towards the end of the month, the hints of cold weather begin and hot drinks and heavy sweaters work their way into the mix.
3. Birthdays and Thanksgiving. Besides The Tim, there are many family birthdays during November. Both of my sisters have their birthdays - as mentioned, my oldest sister Nancy's was yesterday, and my second oldest sister Mary Ellen's birthday is on November 29. A brother-in-law, a great-niece, and a very close friend are also in the mix. As if that isn't good enough - Hello Thanksgiving!! Coziness, stuffing, the aforementioned pumpkin pie, parades, conscious gratitude. All of this in one month seems almost decadent.
Here's hoping November is a good month for all of us. And that as much goodness as possible comes your way.
