Elections are over.
Winter seems near.
Leaves nearly gone.
Branches are bare.
Ground is mushy, wet, leaf-covered, and cold.
Sun is dim and low in the sky.
Sky is gray and clouded, brooding and remote.
Summer is gone.
Frost covers all.
But . . .
November is a transition month.
Beautiful October may be over, but Christmas cheer is just around the corner.
We have a small space to celebrate our thankfulness.
We'll have lots of food.
Friends and family near.
Time to open up the fireplace.
Time to look forward to winter activities.
Time for a slower pace.
and . . .
time to kill all those pesky bugs.
time for hunting to begin.
time to sweep all those leaves off the porch.
time to begin enjoying the fruits of your garden.
time to say words of love and thankfulness and caring.
I'm going to give you some trivia questions for the month of November. Who ever sends me the most correct answers will receive a nice surprise gift. Your first question:
How long does a stuffed turkey take to roast at 160 degrees C?
- 3 1/2 to 4 hours
- 5 to 5 1/2 hours
- 2 to 3 1/2 hours
- all day
