And The Days Dwindle Down



November's moment of glory is Thanksgiving Day.

Who can resist the smell of turkey baking in the oven? Of course, there are all the delicious side dishes that go with it like mashed potatoes, gravy, jellied cranberry sauce, and whipped turnips. Yum!

Before I gave up eating pie, my favorite was pecan. There must be about 500 calories in one hefty bite.

I plan to finish all Christmas shopping this month. Then all the gifts will be wrapped and labeled.

That will be a tremendous relief, avoiding crowded stores at all cost. This year all Christmas cards will be addressed a few at a time in November. Already got the stamps at the post office. No long lines or crabby customers to contend with, like later in the season.

Have gotten into the habit of writing a daily gratitude list and will continue that practice throughout this month. That way, every day is Thanksgiving Day.

Some of the words to "September Song" are:

"The days (of November) dwindle down to a precious few."

The days of November, and of our lives, go by rapidly. One can choose to savor every moment, enjoy the warmth of a crackling fire on chilly November evenings, cherish the company of family and friends, kiss a spouse, hug a child, and wait, with expectation, for that delicious turkey dinner!
