“As November 21, so the winter.” – Farmers Almanac
If there’s truth to that old adage, we could have a mixed bag of tricks this winter! The sun rose this morning in beautiful shades of peach and pink, but a winter storm is on the way for tonight and tomorrow that will deposit a foot of snow with high winds. My older daughter is flying to California tomorrow and has looked forward to this vacation for a long time, so I hope things settle down by then. What’s the weather like on YOUR November 21st?
Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life.
