The sun is finally coming out after a couple of days of snow and overcast here in upstate New York, just in time for the day after our Thanksgiving.

Today is a day for all kinds of transitions.
Near Johnson City, New York November 10 Golden Hour
We have transitioned from the golden glow of fall...

Near Johnson City, New York November 26 the white of winter.
Our Thanksgiving Turkey 11-27

We have transitioned from dinner with family or friends.... shopping until we drop on what we call Black Friday. (And I just found out Black Friday, our major bargain shopping day in the United States, is now being adapted in the United Kingdom.  I honestly don't know if they will thank us or condemn us.)

I was up at 4:30 am, after a fitful sleep, so I could get to my local Home Depot at 5am.  It's one of the most pleasant places to shop on Black Friday- lots of helpful employees. One went out of her way to find one of their bargains which, somehow, no one knew how to locate.  They have coffee and even donuts from a local donut shop for the bleary shoppers.
Santa Time at the Local Mall
It's 10am and I'm not done yet.

Is this a season of transition for you?

I am going into reruns the next couple of days, as I attempt to write 11,000 or so words in three days to "win" NaNoWriMo. Probably hopeless, but we'll see.

See you in December!


  1. Your turkey looks amazing! Mmmm! My mouth is watering...
    11,000 words in 3 days in impressive. I'd love to try NaNoWriMo....I just don't have the time!

  2. One of these days (years) I will conquer NaNoWriMo, but as for you, 11,000? Come on! You can do it!!!! Push through if you're this close! Lock yourself away and only open the door for bathroom breaks and food!
