WOW !! November already ? where does the  months , days and time go ? ! . Talking about time , did you remember to change your clocks an hour back ?


NOVEMBER 2015 (2 of 8)

The sun is shining this morning and the winds are gently blowing , the temps are warm . They say it is going to  be warm all week with temps hitting 18°C feeling like 22°C or 64°F feeling like 72°F WOW ! that's warm for this time of year but I will not complain with these lovely temps .

             Every November my Christmas Cactus buds in preparation for a wonderful blooming  through out this month and the next .

NOVEMBER 2015 (8 of 8)

         I have been having trouble with my right knee and hobbling around lol  so I am wearing my brace for a while , every now and then my knee acts up  especially if  the air is  damp  but  yeah that's the way it is sometimes .

I hope you all had lots of trick or treaters last night and saw lots of wonderful costumes .  Here we don't get any as the area and houses are quite   wide spread  and more older folk and Mennonite's  live here who do not celebrate Halloween so the evening  was  just as quiet as it always is   .  

  Each new month I   like to make my own calendar on my computer  with a program I have  of each month with a photo I have taken for that month I use a sheet of print paper and print it out on our big printer   so I am  doing that today  , I enjoy creating them and putting on special occasion's or appointments that we may have  in my choice of fonts colours and even a bit of clip art      . Well that's it for me  have some things to do ,so I better get going !  

                                                                         Happy November

                                                                                Until next time

The African violet reminds me of one my mother had.

Your pictures are pretty. I used to have a Christmas cactus years ago. I would love to have another one. I haven't had any houseplants in a long time. I just may go out and buy a few. Hope your knee feels better soon.

I have a Christmas cactus that won't behave itself. It always flowers in October, but this year it flowered in January, then Feb, then more in March, and now it's flowering again. It's all mixed up.

It really is hard to imagine that November is already here. Good luck with that knee! Have a wonderful week.
