Hey folks! I started blogging this morning, then was called away to babysit for someone who had to leave suddenly. So, my day was spent hanging out with a delightful little girly and no computer, but I’m back home now and I’m finally posting. Enjoy!
What I focused on in November:
- November went so fast I didn’t feel like I had time to focus on anything other than keeping up
- Family time – between a cousin’s weekend, Thanksgiving, and going to an out-of-state wedding, I was able to log a bunch of good time with people I love
Fiction: 4 (Edit: Actually 5 – I forgot about one. Obviously it didn’t make a big impression on me.)
Plus the first “book” in a novella collection, but I decided not to read the rest of the collection, so I don’t have a review of it.
Book Reviews: I’m not sure #oops
Audio Books: 2
Nights Gone: 4 or 5
New States or Countries: None
I generally refresh my mind of what’s been happening by going through my pictures at the end of the month, but the lens on my case is scratched, and it’s a bit of a hassle to take my case (it’s LifeProof) off, so I don’t have many pictures. Therefore, I don’t have quite as many easily-recalled memories of this month.
I worked at a retreat at the beginning of this month, which means I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, and that’s always rewarding. I also did a fair amount of Christmas cookie baking with one of my jobs. Now that was fun. In two days I listened to two whole audio books plus a lot of Christmas music.
During the second week of the month, I went to Columbus for a Girl Cousin’s Weekend. We haven’t had one of those for a couple of years, so it was nice to get all together again. We cooked, played games, talked, shopped, and at one time even took an unplanned group nap. #Goodtimes
The next weekend I went to PA for a wedding where my beautiful sister was a bridesmaid. I got to visit some good friends there, so that was fun. By the time the reception was over it was pouring down rain, so the bride and all the bridesmaids ran out to get some pictures in the deluge. How’s that for a great way to end the day?
Thanksgiving was a special time even though some of the family was sick, so we were missing them when the rest of us got together. The following few days were also nice as we spent a lot of time together as a family making memories and watching dreams unfold.
Other special snapshots of the month include cutting grass during a light snow flurry, making baklava that actually turned out the correct way, buying ice cream that was on an extreme sale when we stopped at a gas station, a surprise birthday party for one of my cousins, finally getting back to eating healthfully, finding a mystery series that looked interesting, and enjoying the delightfulness of November.
How was your November?
