Falling Back

How are you spending your extra hour created by the end of Daylight Savings Time?  Many times in the past I’ve slept it away, which is what my younger daughter and husband are currently doing.  I found myself hungry and ready to get out of bed at my normal “DST” time, so it is 9:00 am on a Sunday morning and I’ve already found myself sitting here at the computer for quite a while.

I’ve been going through my photo archives with this extra hour.  My original purpose in doing so was to take advantage of some offers I’ve received from Snapfish, the photo printing website that I usually use.  What I’ve ended up doing is reminiscing about some of my favorite times of this year.

November is a tough month in which to find beauty.   “No leaves, No flowers, No-vember”

We had a frost this morning, and I turned the heat on this morning to take the chill off the house.

Halloween is over.  Thanksgiving will be here in the blink of an eye.  Christmas decorations are in the stores.  I even heard a couple of Christmas songs while I was shopping yesterday.

I know I can’t live in the past, but I’m still not ready to let the cold weather and the holidays have their way!  While I sit here typing this blog post, were it not for brown leaves and bare branches, I could almost believe that winter is not just around the corner.

Tell me in the comments, what did you do with your “extra” hour?  Are you welcoming the return of the holiday hustle and bustle?  What do you do to get through the dreary days of November?
