November is a birthday month in our house but we were both struck down with a horrible winter cold and our special days ended up like a damp squib. A total write off :-( But I did manage to find some photos to represent the better side of the month...
November 2011 was the best November, weather-wise, that I can ever remember. And I'm including my November spent in the South of France back in 1986 and Manila in 1997. It was glorious with blue skies most days and not a single day of rain. Mornings were filled with dew covered spider webs and low, late, colourful sunrises. I was in heaven.
It was warm, sunny and like the most perfect autumn of my imagination, even on my birthday. I had the most perfect weather birthday in history:
I got beautiful, bright, happy flowers for my birthday which helped compensate for the fact that I was as sick as a parrot:
The Christmas Markets opened and I enjoyed my first Poffertjes of the season:
We all stopped for a moment on 11.11.11 and I made sure I recorded the moment:
And I made sure there was a bit of time for scrapping and my current banner obsession:
Last but not least, my personal bar keeper kept the cocktails flowing to help chase away the runny nose blues:
And that was November. Now that I'm caught up, maybe I can keep this going from here on.
Thanks Deb for this great idea - perhaps I should lift the photos and journalling for monthly layouts to support my 12 on 12s. Now there's a thought... ;-)
