Saying Goodbye to November

We’re getting a light dusting of snow her in Nova Scotia this morning and it’s hard to deny how beautiful it looks. It’s not the first snow we’ve seen this month, but so far we’ve seen nothing substantial.

From my back step I can see the lake, so I snapped a quick picture. Brrr…

I was reminded today of how everything around us changes. We sometimes forget this. We think things can stay exactly as they are, maybe even wish they can. Life is transient, forever changing. Just as the season’s change, nothing around us stays the same. It’s impossible. The changes can be so subtle that we might not see or notice, until we have reason to slow down and reflect.

I’m not a huge big fan of winter. I have other seasons that I prefer. But it’s on it’s way. It’s inevitable. Today was a reminder. Here’s hoping the winter won’t be a harsh one.

Tomorrow will see the start of a brand new month. Winter will officially arrive. Another year is beckoning to us. Who knows what is waiting for us in 2022.

  1. The lake looks bleak. We had the same start to the morning: grey clouds and flurries. I won’t miss November. It is the month of muck and mud. With all this rain, I’m sinking past my ankles, fearful of losing my boots when I struggle to draw them out.

    • We have had a wet November. I’ve always found November skies as interesting but this year we’ve seen so many overcasts and dull skies. We’ll see what December brings.

    Beautiful photograph, Laura. Also the message — everything is in constant change, by the minute, every second; we flow along.

    • Thanks Syr. Zoom has made a big difference with out photographs these days. Recently, I’ve been very aware of the many changes in life, but I am hopeful that the changes going forward for the next little while will be less substantial. 🙂

  3. The only thing constant is change. We would get bored if things stayed the same. I hate to say it, but I spent this afternoon outside writing out Christmas cards on my patio in the sun. xo

    • Yes, we definitely could get bored and many people do. Enjoy your warm afternoon in the sun. I am sure you have been seeing the reports from BC these days. My heart goes out to them. ❤

    I love winter, so long as no one has to drive long distances. It’s a good time to sit home and reflect on all the things that has happened in the past two years and how we are all hoping beyond hope that things will be better in 2022. All we can do is sit back and wait to see what it brings us for another year. And prayer that we all stay well and healthy….xoxo

    • Yes, you do like winter. I enjoy being out snowshoeing but I don’t like it when the people I love have to travel on bad roads. Let’s hope that 2022 sees things getting back to “normal” although something tells me that what we once thought of as “normal” no longer exists.

  5. It’s been cold one day and warmer the next here in Kingston, ON – hard to get used to the cold, but nice when a sunny, warmish day pops in. Nice picture, and I know your back step well:) Hope to be there again sometime soon! Hope your real estate business is finished for a time?

    • I have actually snapped quite a few pics from my back step over the years. Looking forward to a visit with you sometime in the future. I’m sure you’re getting in some great Nan-time with little Ada. 🙂
