November Comes to a Close

A couple of weeks ago on facebook a friend posted this:
"Every time a Christmas tree is lit before Thanksgiving, an elf kills a baby reindeer. True story."
I got a chuckle from it because I know it's aggravating to see all the Christmas displays and decorations up way too early.
As I mentioned last year, the fact that Thanksgiving and Christmas sort of run together these days doesn't bother me in the least.
To me The Holidays start on November 1st and run through January 1st.
It's a time of family celebration, being thankful, giving back, parades, travel, relaxing, decorating, cooking, and parties.
We don't start decorating until the day after Thanksgiving for Christmas, but I'm in full swing now, hoping to finish up our Christmas cards today!

I am happy to have completed almost all my November goals, including a couple of house projects I'll share with you soon.

And finally, November 30th is always about my Mawmaw.
Today would have been my grandmother's 100th birthday and I miss being able to call her to wish her a Happy Birthday.
She loved birthdays and would have been tickled to reach 100.
She passed away in June and we know she's in a better place now.
