November already? Time is definitely one of the most mysterious things there is. The Dafter often finds that her days crawl past, and will say, about something we did the day before, “Was that only yesterday? It seems like that happened about four days ago!” And yet, here once again is the full moon; here once again is the fresh calendar page!
Our thoughts and attention have been very much on everyone in the path of Hurricane Sandy these last few days. Michael and I spent six years and were married in Connecticut, and it’s terrible to see the widespread devastation across such a lot of the States. I know the people of Haiti and Cuba have also suffered greatly. We’ve been sending our prayers to them. I’m so glad to live in a part of the world where we don’t usually experience huge extremes in weather.
Here are some photos of this month just past:
We had such a wet, cold summer that my sweet peas really only got going in September:
I’m not sure why, but the fall colors here have been really beautiful this year:
I made this Streusel-topped Pumpkin Bread, following the recipe on Karen’s ‘Beatrice Euphemie’ blog (here) – and it was delicious!
And we had some snow at the end of the month – just a little reminder that winter is just around the corner.
I hope this finds you and yours all safe, warm, dry. And if you’d like to enter my tea-towel giveaway, leave a comment here before Sunday at 4 pm GMT!
