26 Things I Like About November

with one comment

A – Autumn.  In Georgia the month begins with an average high in the upper 60’s and ends in the upper 50’s.  It is a nice break from the heat of the summer and with the daylight savings time ending, it provides down time to recover from a long bicycle riding season.

B – Butternut squash.  Add some maple syrup and it is a nice treat.  Click here for a recipe

C – Cocoa, hot with marshmallow for extra creamy flavor.  Cooler temperatures call for drastic measures I guess.

D – Donuts and hot apple cider, a winning combination.

E – Election day, the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November (it can never be November 1st).  Then the ads are over!

F – Football.  College football rivalry weeks are usually at the end of the month and the professionals are heading for the playoff run.

G – Golden sunsets with your sweetie nestled close to you to keep warm in the cool, crisp air.

H – Humor – see “U”

I – Ibuprofen to ease the pain of going on that bike ride for the first time in a while during a warm spell.

J – Jumping into a big pile of leaves especially when I was younger.

K – Kissing your spouse after watching a Golden Sunset.

L – Lying on the couch with the fireplace roaring after some donuts and hot apple cider.

M – Mom’s cooking (any month of the year)

N – Napping without a care in the world after turkey overload.

O – Omeprazole, the drug for acid reflux that comes in handy when you overdo the turkey and trimmings.

P – Pecan pie instead of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving.  Pecan pie is my favorite.

Q – Quiet morning reflection as steam rises from the pond behind my house.

R – Roast turkey at 350 degrees for 2 hours and 15 minutes, less with a convection oven.  Read my post about convection ovens here

S – Saturday afternoons on my bike when a warm spell comes for a welcomed visit.

T – Turkey and Thanksgiving.

U – Uncontrollable laughing that inevitably breaks out at family gatherings from someone cracking wise.

V – Vegetables drowning in high fat gravy or butter.

W – Wispy cirrus clouds floating in the crisp blue sky which makes a perfect canvas for the remaining fall foliage (in Georgia)

X – Xylophones in marching bands during halftime of those Thanksgiving Day football games.

Z – Zebras (NFL referees) making bad calls and still blowing it after watching the replay “under the hood”.  It provides comic relief. 

Have a great week, a week in November.

  1. Excellent post. But for me “P” stand for “P”retty much anything except pecan and pumpkin pie. Perhaps Peanut Butter?
