I just returned from a visit to my daughter in Minnesota, and not a sailboat is left in the harbor. Lobster boats are still there and are hanging on for dear life this morning as they fight the strong winds blowing across from the west, with huge whitecaps rolling into shore. A few leaves remain on the trees but most have blown away in this new storm. There has been plenty of rain here so no drought for this area.

Halloween has come and gone and now Christmas will overtake all the stores' shelves. At this time of year there are lots of craft fairs going on in churches and schools, which are fun to go to. Thanksgiving comes on Nov. 28, which means for me a lovely meal with family and friends. I think it's all about the traditions established throughout our lives that bring us comfort during the holidays. And it's never too late to start some new traditions!

Lighthouse Pizza and Pub is starting to collect for Toys for Tots. Town Hall has hats and mittens for anyone for the winter. Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday, and we head into the two darkest months of the year, November and December, with January bringing longer days again.

Remember to fill up your own inner well with who and what you love.
