My Day so far....I don't like November...

I almost dislike November as much as I dispise February....though not completely as much. The days get darker and colder instantly...that darned clock thing throws me all off my schedule (well it I had one that is) the dogs don't want to go out, and man they smell when they get back in...ugh...nope there is nothing pretty about November, the leaves have basically already fallen, the stunning October colour is gone....all the joy from doing that first batch of raking the leaves has gone, now that you have done it umpteen times. Even the waves on the lake are ugly...and ferocious in the cold wind, that whips by my ankles at 7 in the morning while I am waiting for the bus to pick up my kids. Which is another thing I dislike....my kids leaving in the mornings...I actually like spending time with them in the mornings. We seem to have gotten a great routine in the morning going and it is complete non-stress....even when we get up late....which happens often :) Hot chocolate in the morning with banana bread....yum yum....I am going to have to invest in tiny marshmallows for the boys...not a fan of them, but they dress up the mug so well. Searching for Christmas ornaments is always fun....they are never packed in the same place year after year...and I always end up finding a new treasure from years before....lol...in some odd spot that I would never have thought I would have put it. New craft ideas are spurning around in my head...aprons, quilts, stuffies, POTHOLDERS!! things I have never thought to do before....November makes you reach really hard to find the best in it...it is there...I know it is....dig deep and behind the dark and dreary days....you will find....hot chocolate :)



As much as I hate spreading the word about these things....cause this means more interest and less chances for me to win....I must blog about the 12 days of Christmas giveaway it is such a nice idea, and great to help out for your holiday pocketbook....click the link and get in on the action....

Also MY favorite giveaway ever....please please please....do not click the link....no no really.....don't click it. I am sure you can find something else to do...just don't click this link Don't you have laundry to fold or something? Who needs a gorgeously fabulous fantastic newly aged to perfection quilt....I mean it....DON'T CLICK....Don't click the link....walk back outta the room like you never saw this......but be warned if you do click....you will never feel the same about a quilt.....sigh.....drool....

Gavyn came home today....early....he left the house feeling fine, but at 11am I got a call from the school that he wasn't feeling well. I was like "Really? because he was fine when he left this morning, is it his tummy? or a cold??" The gal on the other end of the phone did not know as she is "just" the secretary and was calling home because his aid asked her too. So.....I struggled with this....not knowing if I should send a taxi for him, or go myself...find out what is really wrong with him. I mean he is not the type to play sick...but he is the type to whine with every bump and knock...so a sniffle to him could be like death...you could say he has a flair for the dramatic. So while really thinking about it, and knowing how I felt this morning about missing him :) I gave a phone call to Grandma to see if she was available to pic him up...I live in the middle of no where, and do not drive.....and she was happy to go and get him. They arrived about 40 mins later....and when they walked in...he of course, looked....fine.....so I asked him, what was wrong??? Apparently his NOSE hurts....no sniffles, runny nose, or bruising .....it just hurts???!!!! WTH.......Gavyn think that his aid may have mistook nose for ears....or maybe he did....but really.... I am aggravated that they sent him home so quickly, without any real kind of sickness, and that I had to ask Grandma to go and get him...grrrr....

But hey, I will take extra snuggle time any way I can :)

well, I clicked on the link to the quilts, but entering was was too technically challenging for me so you don't have to worry about me winning!
They are gorgeous though!

Phew... you really don't like November... don't be so glum... I also have to wake up everyday at 7:30 to bring my brother to school and yes the glum weather is cold and makes me grumpy since I don't have work or school till 12 or 1pm but gives me etsy time! I wish I lived close enough to see a lake... must be very scenic where you live... I live in the city... nice neighborhood but a lake... does that puddle of sewer water count? lolol... anyways hot chocolate and banana bread sounds great! I heard of the 12 days of Christmas too! The quilt looks lovely but my heart is devoted to the quilt my grams left me ...

cheer up... November ain't so bad...

it's Thanksgiving and Turkey season!! =D
