Saturday Night Serenade–Well, The November Part Is Right

It’s November!  Here we are merely weeks away from Christmas.  By the stroke of midnight last Saturday, advertisers rolled out a blitz of holiday commercials.  They’re playing Christmas music in the stores and I’m beginning to feel the panic of making sure I don’t forget anyone on my list and that I get everything shipped to arrive on time.

wpid-screenshot_2015-11-07-14-57-15-1.pngBut wait a tic.  We have the entire month of November, and I for one would like to slow down and enjoy it.  It’s the time for cooler weather, for pumpkin spice and hot apple cider.  This time last year, we were using our fireplace and our home was a cozy place to unwind.  That was last year.

This year the weather is slightly different.  Regardless of what the calendar says, we’re having ourselves a tropical heat wave.  The air conditioning is cranked full-blast and don’t even talk to me about the fire wood available in front of Publix.

For the first Saturday of November, I chose November Rain by Guns N Roses.  Granted, it’s neither cold nor raining.  But I’ve always loved this song.  There were those back in the day who criticized Axl Rose for this extra-long epic.  Some called him pretentious for using an orchestra to back up the band.

But I like it, and I appreciate the moxie to try something different.  Always be a square peg.  And happy Saturday night!

        That’s what someone else said and I can’t figure out what the heck I’m doing differently. As long as I didn’t leave you in the dust my love.

        PS – I have a date with Luke & Bella tomorrow morning. I’ve been woefully behind in reading this past few months.

      2. I’m glad to be able to follow along. I’m bummed that I can’t find Kinky Cafe. Maybe one day when I have lots of time (and patience) I’ll get it. I hope you like Luke & Bella. My new book comes out Dec. 8. 🙂

      3. When I click on the link, the little circle thingy spins and after a while I get a notification that the server is unavailable and the connection timed out. Franco tried to help me but it never worked out.

        I can’t even imagine what that would be. I had similar trouble at first but I had to clear the cache of my browser and do it again.
