welcome, november.

october is over ... *phew.*
the election is over ... *hmph.*
the holidays are upon us ... like it or not.

& i'm feeling appropriately grateful.

for our first gray, blustery,
hint-of-winter day.

too much of this is depressing.
but a day or two is perfect for
hunkering down at home.

lit a candle.
brewed up a chai latte.
put on my "thanksgiving" ipod playlist.
did a little online xmas shopping.

now blogging. then working.

i'm blessed.

yes you are!

I"m so thankful for the cooler weather. Not so happy about all the Christmas stuff out in the stores, but glad we've gotten a fair chunk of the shopping done.

Sweaters. Fireplaces. Hot-tea-and-honey. Mmmmmmmm.

yes, scotty, two solid months of xmas seems a little excessive. but the cool weather helps make it bearable. gently invigorating. this is why people live in california. :)

K, please to share your Thanksgiving iPod playlist?

hi, suzyq ... my thanksgiving playlist consists of a mix of the albums "Autumn (Windham Hill 20th Anniversary Edition)," "Simple Gifts [Windham Hill again]," & "Thanksgiving - A Windham Hill Collection," along with the following individual songs:
Home - Michael Buble
I've Got Plenty to be Thankful For - Bing Crosby
Count Your Blessings - Bing Crosby
Peace - Norah Jones
Amazing Grace - Ladysmith Black Mambazo
it's seriously *easy* listening. but my husband & my daughter both commented this week about how much they liked it. :)
