November Birthdays and Anniversaries

November brings its own version of quiet -- at least quieter than the bursting energy in spring and summer -- yet not as quiet as the coming cold winter months.  The days grow shorter and the weather cooler.  But, of course, November still requires plenty of work in yard, garden, and farm.  And always the animals need care if one lives on a farm.

How did early mothers handle washing and drying clothes, especially the continuous collection of dirty diapers, during the months when laundry could not be hung outside to dry quickly?  And were the babies sicker in November because of cold weather?  How I wish a grandmother had kept a journal that had passed down to me!

Among my direct and collateral ancestors there are fewer births and marriages in November than in any other month of the year.  A quiet month in that regard, too.
