I have a special kinship with November. It is my birth month. That’s right, I’m a scorpio. We’re mysterious and all that. What’s that? You don’t know any scorpios? Oh, well, you probably do but they don’t just come right out and tell you, they want to you to figure it out yourself. (Maybe it’s because we’re, um… mysterious.) Or it could be because our sign always scares people off. There’s that whole thing about being very jealous. (“watch out for the scorpio’s sting!”) But I think it’s a bunch of hoo-hah. (yes, hoo-hah.) I think it gets way to much play in scorpio’s horoscope.
I have a new little scorpio in my life. A new nephew. Isn’t he the sweetest? (yes, brittany, he is.) (scorpios are so controlling!) This new family is in heaven and you can’t help but feel it when you are around them. What a delight.
But that’s not all I love about November. It starts out great, what with all of the leftover candy from Halloween. (I was going to do a post with cute pictures, but I just have been too ridiculously busy. That’s a whole other post in itself.) Then we start to think about Thanksgiving and the focus of the whole month turns to gratefulness. What can be more uplifting?
The leaves have mostly dropped from the trees, doing their pretty little dance on their way down to the ground, but I have several Japanese Maples in my yard and they are in a fit of showy redness right now. I don’t remember this happening in the past. Last November I was on bed rest, and I don’t know what I focused on the year before, but this year, I’m focusing right on the bold little trees who are refusing to blend in. That’s right, let’s have all the beauty we can stand, little Japanese Maple, I’m right there with you. Maybe I’ll actually do my hair today and wear something snappy. (speaking of, I think I will start a portfolio of outfits my eldest comes up with—it is inspiring me to be more bold.) (there. I just did.)
I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
