Welcome to the first day of November, All Saints Day and the Day of the Innocents, the first day of Day of the Dead.
I hope everyone has recovered from their Halloween shenanigans and that you are thus far having a fabulous day.
We also did the changing of the clock and fell back an hour. I am not sure how I feel about it yet but will keep you posted!
Here in sweet home Alabama we are getting some much needed rain and our temperatures are getting more fall like. Of course this is Alabama so it could be rainy and cold today and get warm again this week! I personally hope we get to keep the cool weather around for a bit. I love the fall weather. Our trees are still changing and beautiful. Daily it seems there is a colorful carpet in the yard yet our trees still have beautiful colors and leaves left to fall. It’s that in-between phase where they have changed colors but not yet completely and although some trees are a bit more barren than others, we still have a good amount of leaves on the trees. The contrast is amazingly beautiful.
It is also Sunday, what some consider a day of rest. I am hoping to get some things done to ready for the upcoming week and also rest! I am hoping that the boy will be down for a low key day today. After all of the running we did yesterday, he needs a day of rest before jumping back into a “regular” week! After all, he got to dress up for the past 3 days! Today we all may be in a bit of a sugar coma. We don’t eat a lot of sugar so the past few days have been like a free for all in the candy department!
I wish you all a fabulously, beautiful Sunday!
Always remember to keep hope alive!
One thought on “Happy November, All Saints Day and Day of the Innocents/Day of the Dead”
Yep, and tomorrow is All Souls Day, I guess what ya’ll would consider Decoration, I’m thinking that’s what it’s called. and since it falls on a Monday, we are going to Huntsville to Maple Hill, for my father, Nonna, and Ashley’s graves. then on to Cullman County for my mother’s people, except, for Jack in Nashville, and two brothers here in Morgan County. Quite a lot of driving today, but Becky is doing it, even though she has walking pneumonia, and I’m not allowed to drive right now, I have to wait two more months. About to go to Mass, then off we go. Just a bit of educational info since you and yours our Protestant which you can thank yesterday for which was Reformation Day. This is the was the All Souls Day prayer I was taught as a child.
you are the glory of believers
and the life of the just.
Your son redeemed us
by dying and rising to life again.
Since our departed brothers and sisters
believed in the mystery of our resurrection,
let them share the joys and blessings
of the life to come.
