I hope you have had a good week. Thank you so much for all the kind comments on my previous post.
Here are my happy things from the last week in November, and the last week of Autumn.
If you go by the Met Office's definition of the seasons Winter starts today.
1. Short days.
O.K. I'm not always happy about these, but there are plus points. Sunrise at the end of our street, at a time I can easily be awake to see it has to be a big happy..........
Tuesday 7.30 am
Wednesday 7.30 am
The day after I had hung up this coconut shell full of bird food it was showing evidence that they had been enjoying a little peck..........
I love to see birds in our garden and like to think I can give them a helping hand to survive the winter.
3. New Slippers
now it's getting chilly, and my old slippers have holes in the sole, I've bought some new ones, with knitting and pom-poms....they make me smile :0)..........
4. This weeks Drawing.
A heart shaped November wreath............
I couldn't even attempt to produce anything so accurate and accomplished , but this year I've discovered the enjoyment in creating simple, colourful, fun drawings. Like Edith, I'm hugely inspired by the changing seasons.
So this my celebration of November..........
After appearing in the background of many of my drawings this year, Tom Tit has finally got the lead role :0)
This drawing is full of inspiration from many other sources too.......beautiful photo's in blog posts like THIS and THIS and THIS. And of course Autumn inspired crochet like THIS
I'm so happy with how it turned out, I'm already working on a December version:0)
I'm kind of sad to say goodbye to November, it's been a good one , but there's lots to look forward to in December.....It'll be busy, and the boys love it.
