"No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds -
- Thomas Hood, No!

I remember that feeling during the years we lived in Germany. The days became so short, and the nights were loooooong - all I wanted was to sleep! Hope you find the comfort you need to get through the month - December is almost there! Also hope you're doing better with your asthma.

November is usually our gloomy month, but we had so much rain in October it was gloomy. Here on the 4th of November we have has sunny skies every day so far!

I really like the poem, I may have my little ones copy it! It is true!

This week I've been struggling with the down and depressed mood November gives me, so after a good and proper telling myself off session I feel much better. Good job as we have to much to do before we leave (God willing) for Israel in 3 days!
