Novembrrrrr

November. Or should I say Novembrrrrrrrr.. That grey, dull, dreary, wet, cold, windy, yuchy month. Can you tell I don't really care much for November? The fall color is gone, the trees are bare, the gardens have all gone to sleep, temps are turning cold, there seems to be extra rain and wind, the darkness falls too early, the nights seem so black... sigh. I hate the thoughts of winter knocking at our door... I tend to "go into hibernation mode"... Yes, I can feel it coming on...
We set our clocks back this weekend. (I tried to set mine back to when I was 20, but it didn't work... lol) It's almost dark now at 5p.m. - that is just too early. I'd much rather have the darkness in the morning. But I don't make the rules...
What about you? Do you like November? It seems to be such a Blahhh month. So I am spending more  time in my studio (Yay!!) I'll be showing you very soon what I'm working on...
What are you up to these Novembrrrr days?

Peace,
Linda

"October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces."

I love the dark of late fall and winter. It makes me want to be cozy and to cook yummy warm foods.
That being said I work in a windowless area and don't see the light of day during work hours unless I go outside midday.
Now talk to me again next spring when it is still raining in June and I will not be so accepting.

I really enjoyed reading your post about the Lunenburg/Mahone Bay post with your friends. What a beautiful spot. Lucy

I think November is when I get back on track with things. I'm back exercising, making cards in my craft area and have done some cleaning that was put aside over summer.

I'm not a big fan of November either, especially the early sunset and dark evenings. I don't even like to go out at night now. I'd rather stay home cozy and warm in the house. I just hope it's not one of those rainy windy Novembers. The last 2 days have been very nice. I like your photo of the melting hosta. At least you have quilting as a hobby to help pass the time. Enjoy.

Linda I am in total agreement with your feelings on November. I don't like short dark cold days... Maybe they will pass quickly!
