Welcome November!

Happy November Everybody!

The skies are clear, the sun is shining, it was freezing in our house because we didn't put on the heat last night, although it's supposed to be in the 70's today, but cooler weather, yay!

Hope those who are supposed to remembered to set back their clocks (remember: "spring forward, fall back!") We did, when we got up this morning.

Today is All Saints' Day for Catholics (remembering women and men who exemplified following Christ's words and having a close relationship with the Lord). We went to Mass last night for the vigil.

Today is also when celebrating my dad's birthday since we couldn't on his actual day. So spending time at him and my mom's house today.

As to writing, not sure how much I'm going to get done due to all the other things I have to do today (still gotta decorate the cake--Dad had me make a carrot cake, thank you, Joanne Fluke for the wonderful Carrot Cake recipe in Carrot Cake Murder--not a hard recipe to follow and very, very good--just takes time to grate the carrots if you don't have an electric grater. I use 6 big carrots and found it gives just the right amount--slightly over, but I've never had any complaints about extra carrot--that's how my husband likes carrot cake with plenty of carrot in it).

Anyway, hope you all enjoy your first day of November. Got big plans for today?

Also, please, if you're a praying type, pray for my uncle. He had a scan done and there's cancer activity in his brain. Not sure what else is going to be done at this point, but it's rough because he just went into remission earlier this year for about 2-3 other places he had cancer and he had hernia surgery. So please, whether you pray or you just hope things get better for people, please remember my uncle. Thank you so much!

Have A Scrumptiously Sweet Sunday!
