It's November!

        Oh my gosh! It’s November! And it seems that autumn has finally hit Arizona (it’s hard to tell in Phoenix. The leaves don’t change here….I do miss that….growing up in New Jersey, seeing the leaves change was the highlight of the season…but I digress).
        This is my favorite time of year. I’m just curious how it got to be November without me noticing until just now. Yes, I changed my calendar on the first. Yes, I’ve noticed sunrise is a little later in the morning and sunset is a little earlier in the evening. I saw the trick-or-treaters for Halloween and I’ve noticed a definite chill in the air, especially in the mornings (believe me, I so look forward to this time of year, especially after the heat of the summer!).      
        Time just seems to have snuck up on me.  I have not made out my menu for Thanksgiving dinner or made out my shopping list. Those who know me are probably shocked by this admission as I usually have both tasks done in September and have already started purchasing items during my weekly shopping trip to the grocery store. Today is the 6th and I haven’t done that yet. I know!
            Other than being a little behind in my tasks, this year is a little different for me as my son and his girlfriend will not be making the trip to join us. That’s all right. This is still my favorite time of year. I will bake and cook and clean. And, once again, I realize how much I have to be thankful for.
            And I am a very fortunate woman! I have family and friends whom I adore. I have my health. I have a home that’s warm and comfortable. I have a job I love and I am able to write books that make me, and hopefully others, happy. Oh, and let’s not forget all the stories that I have yet to read.
            What are some of the things you’ll be giving thanks for this Thanksgiving?
As always, happy reading and happy!
