Happy November!

November is my very favorite month! Summer is over, our nights are snuggle down-under-the-covers weather, the skies are clear, and the heat is over. We will still have abundant sunshine. We will even have blue skies and a few puffy clouds here and there.

We got a special November 1st treat…RAIN! If you live in other parts you might think this is no big deal but for us in these parts this is a really big deal! In Southern California we are in the middle of a serious drought. Last night while snuggled-down-under-the-covers we awoke to the sound of rain. It was so wonderful. Thommmee said the plants and all of outside must be soaking up the moisture and breathing a sigh of thanks and relief.

We laid there just listening and  enjoying the sound.

This morning when I got up I found another surprise…

…a rainbow!

I then strolled around the house and sure enough, the plants looked happy,

everything clean,

It was a sight to behold!

Hooray hooray for the 1st of November!

  1. I’m so pleased to hear you have had some decent rain. Hopefully there’s plenty more to come. I remember when our drought broke a few years back – the sound of rain on the roof was pure bliss – and I also loved how it cleaned and refreshed everything. A huge Happy November to you. xoxox

  2. I know! I thought about all of the little trick or treaters out last night when the weather finally decided to turn. Thank you so much for your comments, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. I am very much enjoying the recipes on your blog! At least with the cooler temperatures I’m in the mood to cook.

  4. Here in Northern California the rain came heavily just before the little ones ventured out for Halloween. While it put a damper on the evening, it was so welcome! Great post and awesome pictures. I can so relate.
