Hello November!!

November 1, 2015

Good morning everybody, and Happy November!!   Well, I must say Pogo and I will be needing a really nice long nap this morning.   We had ourselves a fabulous ride during the night, and had a wonderful time meeting up with our friends. 

At one point during the night, we stopped over in Paris for a potty break and a hot cup of coffee, and a  hamburger for Pogo.  O my, the view was just beautiful.  While we were having our coffee, I called daughter Audrey to let her know we were all right.  I was quite surprised that my cell phone worked so well. 

Here's a photo of the Eiffel Tower on our way in for our potty and coffee break.  Gosh, isn't it pretty?  I also took a photo of our table.  Wow, what a gorgeous view!!

The weather was pretty good for most of our ride, and the cloud cover wasn't too bad.  We did manage to catch a few of our blogland friends waving to us as we passed overhead.  Thank you so much for watching for us.  I hope all of you had a wonderful Halloween evening. 

Someone asked if maybe some of us "frequent flyers" weren't a tad bit too old to be broom flying.  No, I do believe most of us are from the last generation to learn how to drive a stick.  We're a hardy lot.   (image borrowed from web)

Can you believe, it is already November?   There's not quite nine weeks left in this year.  Gosh, I am so glad for that surprise email from Vista Print a few days ago or I'd still be procrastinating about making my cards and new calendar.  Speaking of calendars, here is my November page from this year's calendar. 

This past Friday, Kyra posted an adorable Halloween kit called "Goosebumps" on her blog, and I just had to make another Halloween QP.   Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year,(can you tell?)  so it is a little hard to let go of it.  I hope you can use this QP.  I had fun making it.  As usual, there is a list of credits enclosed with the TOU.

Here is your download link:

Have you ever watched the TV commercial for Belsomra, a sleeping aid?  There are these two little furry darlings, one called "Sleep" and the other called "Wake."  Have you noticed how the lady never pets little Wake?  She only cuddles and pets Sleep.  

Poor little Wake follows her around like an adoring puppy, but she never stops to pet him.  This really bothers me because I can't stand to see a child or animal being ignored or pushed aside.  All of us have arms big enough to cuddle all our little ones.

Mind you, I don't normally get emotional over TV commercials, but this one just got to me.  I wonder if I write to the company and relate my feelings about this ad to them if they would even care.   On the other hand, maybe I'm just a bit too sensitive to this type of thing.  Hmmmm?

Well now I think I'll finish my coffee, and have me a little nap.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Oh, the view of Paris is awesome, and you're table in the restaurant too. Glad you had a safe but also spectaculair ride this year. Oh, Jan asked me to tell you, that there is a new model of broomsticks with a new jet motor on it, called the Smooth123, that is cheaper in use, makes less noise, even has self control, so you can at times just lean back a bit and let the broom do it's job. Something to consider next year??? ROFL.

Keep an eye on the mailbox these days, I just hope Mr. Postman does his work well and will deliver something in time.
Planned to have a lazy day yesterday, and okay, for a part I succeeded, but after I did all the cooking in advance for the dinner, I made some apple compote and also stew pears, the weather still looked okay enough to work a bit in the garden. So I dug up all the dahlia, bulbs, cleaned them as far as possible, labeled them and now they are drying up a bit in the shed, when dry enough, Jan can tuck them away in their boxes with sawcut flakes.
Gosh, we got more and more rom again in the garden, Just hope we can find the good places for the bulbs next year and that they will do as well as this year.
Good, that's all for now, only have to wish you a wonderful day.

I had the same feelings on the sleep and wake, especially since the desired one was white and the other black, like somehow that was bad.
