I seriously can’t believe it is November! September and October flew by in the blink of an eye. November is a great month – full of cozy moments, family time..and my birthday and anniversary! My husband and I will have been married twenty-one years on Thursday! Talk about time flying. I am pretty sure we are still just 17 years old right?
Well, without further ado – the prompts!
Appreciating: The weather change – it finally feels like fall! I’ve been waiting for fall to really show up to the party so I can break out the soups and comfort meals and hot chocolate. I am also appreciating any and all personal time I get, as that is scarce right now. I am hoping things slow down soon. And, I am appreciating my husband and my son, the source of most of my joy in life.
Getting: Christmas gifts! I feel like I can go all out now that it is November. Other than that, not much just mostly groceries and library books.
Making: Lesson plans, gift lists, tiny sewn felt creatures. I am a super beginner sewer but it is relaxing nonetheless. I think I am going to make some cute little critters out of felt for my cats to play with – they can get them as Christmas gifts! (Maggie, I know you are sitting next to me I hope you are not reading this.. no peeking!)
Sharing: Random funny things with my friends via text and Instagram messenger (looking at you in particular with that one Lisa) It helps break up my day. Meals with my mom, especially when I make a giant pot of chili. My son’s Halloween candy… well, I guess that is more him sharing with me…
Wearing: Nothing exciting here! Comfy clothes, warm sweaters, my new glasses. I am trying to buy things thrifted these days in efforts to be more environmentally friendly, which is sort of like a fun hunt. I am finding so many warm flannels and thick yummy sweaters at the thrift store – I just wash them and wear them! Also, I wore deer ears and a flannel for my costume on Halloween, as a Sweet Tooth inspired outfit. Easy peasy! And I was happier than it appears in this photo!
And that is about it from around here! What about you all? What are you appreciating, getting, making, sharing, and wearing these days?
