The autumn leaves of gold and crimson looked awesome, but they are gone with the wind and all that’s left are skeletons. We’ve even had our first snowfall. I’m thankful for the pines and spruce trees, at least there’s some greenery around. I’m still trying to find something positive–like Pollyanna does–to cheer me up.
There’s always something to be glad about.
Wearing my almost new (thrifted) beret with my tartan boots and tartan wrap from Scotland makes me smile. Wearing cozy sweaters are comforting. Going to Christmas bazaars and craft shows and decorating for Christmas makes me happy. Hearty vegetable soup on a dark, snowy night warms me up. Going dancing lifts my mood and I can keep my mind off the thought that the long, cold winter is coming.
My tartan rubber boots keep my feet dry, they are so comfortable and fun to wear. Jean had a pair and let me wear hers while I was in Seattle. She was so kind to order a pair for me and when they arrived in a package one day, I was as delighted as a kid on Christmas morning!
What do you do to brighten up, cheer up, liven up November?
P.S. Our first snowfall (12 cm) a magical sight from my bedroom window, but baby, it’s cold outside!
