Grateful November

Sunlight casted a shadow to my office wall this Tuesday ... making me notice, that the skies were blue and clear outside. The yellow leaves were dancing in the wind, falling so elegantly from the chestnut trees under my window - such a pretty sight.

My next meeting was to start in 20 minutes - I grabbed my coat and went outside, admiring the bright sunlight, breathing the cold air - and waiting for the arrival of my colleague. 

According to the Danish Meteorological institute, Copenhagen has only had 29 hours of sunshine in November - this maybe the reason why the moments in the sun won't go unnoticed ...

November is a kind of a culmination of fall - The days get shorter and the weather gets colder - we're moving towards winter. 

November invites us to
- wear wool socks and warm gloves, 
- notice the changing weather from grey and cloudy periods to the moments when the sun breaks out, 
- cherish the foliage color play
- bake apple pies and 
- light candles in the evenings.

November is also a month of Thanksgiving. I has been a pleasure to see the many images on Instagram feed #gratefulnovember - picturing the small and big things, people are thankful for. We do not celebrate Thanksgiving as such here in Scandinavia, yet there is so much to be thankful for, actually each day, that I wouldn't mind dedicating a special day as a national holiday for Thanksgiving:

Happy Thanksgiving to all the friends in America!
