Fantastic Garden 2013: Monumental Collaborative Puzzle Print #4 (click to enlarge)

1.  I got my prints from the Fantastic Garden Puzzle Print  My Garden Gnome is residing among the birds, bees, flowers and fairies. See if you can spot him in the above image, floating about in his bubble.
2.  Poem A Day is going swimmingly. I'm writing longer - and better - poems thanks in part to a book I picked up. The Crafty Poet: A Portable Workshop by Diane Lockward. Highly recommended. 

3.  The leaves are finally off the trees and it feels more like November. Of course the spitting rain/snow we had this morning added to the gloomy feel. How do you survive the long trudge that is November? 

4.  Are you a Christmas planner or a Christmas pantser? (Do you plan ahead or wing it?)  Every year I think I'll plan Christmas out and make/buy gifts ahead of time, and every year time slips away from me like water in a dog bowl. November appears longer than it really is. No wonder the stores push Christmas early. It's for those of us with no time sense. 

5.  The spun thrummed mittens are finished. Now I'm spinning Shetland wool and saving all the fur tufts off the Corgis for a Shetland-Corgi hat. Or more mittens. We'll see. Depends on how much more the Corgis shed- and knowing Corgis, it could be quite a bit.

But it is missing one thing.

I don't think we had any Colorado participants. Then it surely would have shown up.

A shetland-corgi hat, huh? I'm skeptical. Oh, and I found the gnome!
I don't think of November as a long trudge because I love Thanksgiving and all the cooking that goes with it. I love the crisp air and the first snows and using the fireplace. I even like the early dark. I am a winter person. And I sort of let the Christmas plans unfold as I go.

Corgis made everything better!
I am most definitely not a winter person. Early dark makes me want to hide.
I treat Christmas as an inevitability and get through it...
