Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet again

Tuesday, November 5, 2013


November showed up rather abruptly, as far as I am concerned. Oh, I knew it was coming; after all, I had been preparing for Samhain/Halloween for a while. Not too hard to assume November 1st would be the very next day.

And changing the clocks back. I actually wish we would stop doing the whole daylight savings time thing. Really, why do we still do it? Just one of the millions of things about Life I have no answers for.

We went to the funeral on Friday, for the young woman who was murdered. The funeral home was crowded with mourners and it was a difficult time on many levels. There are a million questions about this event too, and probably not much in the way of answers.

To perk up my mood a bit, I went to a Holiday Craft Fair at the high school. What a bust! Very small. Not much in the way of creative crafting, too many "store-bought" goods and grumpy vendors and crowd. I thought hand crafted items were on the rise these days, but apparently not around here. Wonder why?

Tomorrow my husband and I meet his new surgeon for the reconstruction surgery. He stopped going to the other doctor a while ago, you know, the one who screwed up so badly. With optimism and a list of questions to ask, we expect this time to have a really good experience. Believe me, he won't be signing one single paper until we are fully informed and satisfied of the competence.

Gotta run, off to AutumnWood today with my son to plant spring-blooming bulbs. Will they survive squirrels, crows, raccoons, and the ravages of serious winter weather? Answer coming to that in the Spring!

Who me? Eat bulbs?

I think it is too early for hand crafted things yet because it's usually rather expensive and the economy is still rather bad.

I'm glad Your husband has a new doctor! The other one didn't even do a half good job!

Have a great day planting bulbs!

May your bulbs be safe from the Devil Squirrel.

Merry Meet. I've not visited in awhile and I'm glad I did. I never thought of planting bulbs throughout my timber for those little surprises of color in the spring. Thanks for sharing. Many Blessings ~Rain

I, too, hate daylight savings. It not longer serves the purpose for which it began and yet it continues. I don't know how it can be stopped but I wish it would.
Hugs and Sparkles and good luck

Life is full of many unanswered questions. We can only scratch our head in contemplation sometimes....
May this surgeon be the BEST! I hope you get good news!
And may all your flowers bloom gloriously next Spring!

Yes, wish we could quit this fall back and spring ahead nonsense.
I've begun crocheting again. I've just finished one afghan, and starting a new one. Just something else to relax my mind after trying to write. I've got gobs of crafts up in a closet and wondering if I shouldn't try and sell them again.

Good luck.
