Golden November.......

Where I live...
This November has been spectacular!!
At home here...and at the cottage...
We have had a lot of days, where the temps were in the teens...{celsius}
The colour on the plants and trees has been amazing...
The weather has been up and down as well...
Horrific winds...plenty of rain...and plenty of warm sunshiny days...
We have been able to get out, and enjoy the lovely Fall weather...
Certainly makes the Winter look far off...
I like that!
Here are a few of my November pictures...
Hope you enjoy them...

                                           Here at Home...

                                                         And at the Cottage...


I am certain that your colours are just as spectacular...

Hope you have enjoyed them!

Today started out sunny...but...I am afraid the clouds are rolling in! is fairly warm out..the winds are starting to pick up...
We promised Miss V a bike ride after her nap...

Her and I prepared 2 banana/spice/raspberry loaves before her nap...
They have baked...the aroma is wonderful...
And we will enjoy a slab when she wakes up! 

Her Mommy is under the weather...ear and sinus infection...
She will stay and have dinner with us...
And...then...we will drive her home...

We are having pasta...ceasar salad...and some nice crusty bread, that Miss V and I picked up at the grocery store...before heading to the car wash!!

What a good wee girl she is...enjoys the baking...helping..."I am a good helper,Nana"..."yes you certainly are my dear!!"

We gave Red the apple core from her lunch...
Still waiting for him to come and fetch it...
He was enjoying all of the bird seed!! grrrrr...

Hope you are all having a great day...

Isn't November flying by??
First day of Winter not 'til December 21st...I I right??

It will soon be time to go and pick up a tree...
And start the Festive Season...
What fun!!

We think this may be our last chance for a sleepover at the cottage...
We are gonna chance it!
Who cares if your head is freezing while in bed....right?

Enjoy the rest of your day...

                 Cheers!  :o)

  15. I enjoyed all these beautiful fall photos Linda. You've had very nice weather for the most part this month and we've had mostly clouds and chilly air.....except that one Tuesday when it went up to 15. :) Oh well. At least it's not snowing yet! I hope your daughter is on the mend and Miss V doesn't catch the bug. Or you! :)

  16. Very nice golden november. Here, the trees turned a lot eariler and they've been long without the autumn fun. But, now they're ready for snow and I love that look, too.

    Wishing you the best.
