Daylight savings time took its toll, but the prospect of long, cozy evenings by candlelight is a greatly welcomed thought. We had our first fire yesterday, and it felt so nice to be inside and sheltered. It is easier to be thankful for things when you are sitting in front of a fire.
Housekeeping cast it's spell on me this weekend too. I am reading this book across the miles with friends, and I couldn't believe that I was able to put my hand on the copy that I had found in a used, Cambridge book store with my mother several years ago. She loved this book and after many false starts, I am determined to read it all the way through.
I can also begin to enjoy the upcoming season knowing that I have beat the rush to Ikea for its choicest of holiday items before everything is picked over. I am putting these ornaments away for just a few short weeks until I will need them again!
Happy November everyone. :)
