31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy -Day 30 – WELCOME November

1 Nov

WELCOME November!

Another beautiful month of October has past and it’s been a fun one.

I can’t believe how busy we have been with grandchildren.  We don’t take a moment with them for granted..  Many grandparents are not as fortunate with grandchildren living in another state or even another country.

We’ve been to the Dallas Arboretum

Six Flags Over Texas (no pictures to share)

a Fall carnival at church,

and the Shadow Oaks Pumpkin Patch 

with grandkids this month, and so many other smaller things as well as being blessed to watch them each week, and even the four year old got to stay with us three nights while his Mom and Dad were out of town.  Making MEMORIES.

I’ve had the house decorated since September, and it won’t come down until after we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love, love, love Christmas, but these days it really bothers me that the stores have already gotten rid of Fall decorations and forgotten about Thanksgiving.  I wish these stores were brave enough to not start Christmas in September/October.  I truly believe they are missing sales by rushing each season.  I went to buy fall stuff two weeks ago and let me tell you there was nothing left worth buying, and I’m not buying Christmas this early unless it is a gift for my family.

But all that said, I may start decorating the upstairs for Christmas since no one will be up there until Christmas Eve and it will help some of the rush and stress after Thanksgiving.

Welcome November, Hello Daylight Savings Time

1 Nov

Blog-Psalm 1133

WELCOME November.  It’s Saturday, November 1st.  Where has this year gone?  I am never sure, but they go faster than I would like for them too.  I love November.  This first day a cold front, or should I say cool front arrived in Texas.  You might need a jacket here today, or I might, and I’m thinking even a sweater.  A few freeze warnings just North of here but it’s 38 here this morning, but one thing for sure here – it will warm up.

It’s Daylight Saving Day.  Yea – we get an extra hour of sleep Sunday morning.

It’s the month of Thanksgiving and posts are already scrolling on my Facebook page with those things folks are thankful for.  Love it and wouldn’t it be wonderful if we saw those every day of the year?  Have you had that feeling today that the holiday season has started?  Thanksgiving will be November 27th this year, after that let the Christmas music begin (yes I wait until after Thanksgiving, but it’s hard), then Christmas, 2015 and in January I’ll be a grandmother to a second grandson.

Did you know Christmas is ONLY 54 days away?  Are you ready?  I’m not.  I am running way behind this year.  Usually I’ve completed much of my shopping in September and October.

The trees are changing, the sunrises and sunsets are georgous.



What do you like about November?

Today share something you are thankful for.  This first day of November I am reflecting on my Savior and all that He has done for me – every single moment of my life.  Thank You Jesus for another day.
