I took the Christmas things out of the closet so that I could get to the Thanksgiving
decorations. Rather than pack them all back into the closet I put some of the Christmas things
on the bed in the guest room.
Tucker took a little bit of a cat-nap amongst them.
Saturday night I woke up to moon light from the beautiful full moon shining down through my window.
It was so pretty that I stepped outside to take a picture then went right back to sleep.
I had this felted leaf tree that I picked up at Target a few years ago
and I turned it into a Thanksgiving tree. I put some micro-lights on it and a few
decorations that have stories about some of my loved ones.
One of my favourite poems
January brings the snow
Makes our feet and fingers glow
February brings the rain
thaws the frozen lake again
March brings breezes loud and shrill
stirs the dancing daffodil
April brings the primrose sweet
scatters daisies at our feet
May brings flocks of pretty lambs
skipping by their fleecy damns
June brings tulips, lilies, roses
fills the children's hands with posies
Hot July brings cooling showers
apricots and gillyflowers
August brings the sheaves of corn
then the harvest home is born
Warm September brings the fruit
sportsmen then begin to shoot
Fresh October brings the pheasants
then to gather nuts is pleasant
Dull November brings the blast
then the leaves are whirling fast
Chill December brings the sleet
blazing fire and Christmas treat.
When my children were little we had a picture book with this poem in it.
I've always loved it.
We don't have thaw in February where I live though.
February is still very much winter in my neck of the woods.
Happy birthday to my brother who just turned 56!
