Goodbye October

Is it me, or did October fly by very quickly?  Now we are in November and headed towards Thanksgiving.  This year's Thanksgiving will be a tough one for many.  So many of us will be unable to spend this holiday with all of our loved ones.  And some have loved ones that will never again sit at a Thanksgiving table.  It's been a hard year.

Still, there is much to be thankful for.  

Along with shortening days, November has brought us some blustery weather.  It's short-lived, though, as temperatures are to reach the upper sixties by late week.  I will use that gift of warmer weather to complete my garden clean-up and winterization.

We enjoyed a lovely transition into November this past weekend... with a spectacular full moon in the space between months.  My favorite day of the year was yesterday... with an extra hour to put to good use.  For the life of me, I cannot tell you what I did with that hour - because it sped by without me taking note.

We had an exciting visitor at the farm this weekend.

An Evening Grosbeak appeared on one of the bird feeders.  Neither Hubbs nor I had ever seen this species of bird before, so it was quite an amazing sight to us.

The rest of the weekend...
