Unseasonal

It is unseasonably warm for mid-November this week. I know what’s coming so I’m delighted to have a late season opportunity to be outside. (Because realistically, despite my best intentions, once it turns cold I’m staying indoors.)

A walk in the park, leftover homemade chicken soup for supper (Yay! No cooking!), curling up to watch the first two episodes of the new season of The Crown on Netflix, and it turned out to be a good day.


I’m thinking of putting up my non-traditional Christmas trees and ushering in the season of peace a bit early. Goodness knows, we can all use an extra measure of comfort right now. 



It seems odd, what with what’s happening outside, but we did Christmas trees without snow for years when we lived in WA so it’s kind of a throwback. Maybe the lights and the trees will help me climb out of this funk I’m in.

  1. I'm certainly not complaining about this spell of weather. I know anytime it can turn on a dime! Beautiful pictures. Fall colors are the best!

    1. Hasn't it been beautiful! It's such a treat (for those, like me, who eschew the cold weather) to still be able to get outside regularly!

  2. Here in Kansas, USA it is such pretty weather as well. We were 70 degrees today with lots of sunshine. This is kind of unusual for this time of the year for us. We were just talking of beginning to spruce up a bit for Christmas. We usually begin just after we celebrate Thanksgiving, but this year I think we need the warmth and cosiness of Christmas. I am thankful for my faith, my family, my friends, our humble little home, our little plot of land, a stocked pantry, refrigerator/freezer and cupboard. So our Thanksgiving and our Christmas will blend from one into the other. They both are very special to us ... thankful and blessed. Wishing you sweet pleasures and simple blessings from our home to yours. Homespun Hugs, Teri

    1. When we lived in WA I always waited until Thanksgiving too, Teri. I agree with you: we need the warmth and coziness NOW. There are still so many things to be thankful for--like those you list here. Despite the figurative storms that are raging here at home we are blessed with peace.

  3. A lot of people are putting up their Christmas trees/decorations/lights this year early. Several displays in our neighborhood. Of course we are still having summer (88 degrees today) so its laughable to drive by a display that says "let is snow" LOL. Glad you got a chance to be outside; I'm with you, once the cold comes I stay inside (lived 8 years in Billings Montana)

    1. I must admit I'm envious of your weather right now, Betty!
