Happy November everyone! It definitely feels like fall around here these days and I am here for it. Billy and I celebrated 21 years married last week – we didn’t do much, just ordered Italian from our favorite local Italian restaurant, including dessert (that tiramisu!! so delicious) but it was still a nice night. We have had so many different types of anniversaries through the years, from big deals – our weekend anniversary trip to NYC and eating at Les Halles at the top of the list – to quiet evenings like the one we just shared, or the year we ate Chinese food in our car while a crazy electrical storm raged around us outside. We don’t care what we do, as long as we are together. We can be happy doing anything.

Yesterday was a spectacular fall day! Wyatt has been learning about beavers for his November nature study, so we went for a hike along the water, with the intent of spotting beaver signs. It was a success! We inspected quite a few trees that had been gnawed through, gathered some wood shavings that were around the base of a tree, carried around fistfuls of leaves, and did some mushroom spotting. We stumbled on puffball mushrooms and Billy showed us how if you push on them, you can visibly see it squirt out the spores! It was pretty cool.

Read Last Week:

I am not quite finished with this book but so far I am really enjoying it. It seems perfect for middle grade to add some reading diversity.

Reading This Week:

I am so excited to read this! Although, I have a feeling I might be sad at the end. I loved The Salt Path and I have been wanting to read this next segment of the journey.

Posted Last Week:

I’ve been a busy bee this week, visiting blogs for these two blog events!

Currently… November

Nonfiction November – Week One

Watching and Listening:

Billy and I have been watching Locke and Key – we have one episode left and we were definitely left hanging last night! We also watched an episode of the newest season of The Great British Bake Off. I was waiting until November to start it and could feel super cozy. Wyatt has been watching the newest episodes of Molly of Denali (which I am so excited about too!) as well as Gumboot Kids and Let’s Go Luna.

As for listening, I have been listening to the podcast The Wild with Chris Morgan quite a bit the last few days. It’s very soothing to be honest. I also listen to Lord Huron, my favorite, on repeat some days. I am always so curious what other people listen to. If you want to drop in the comments what you have been listening to I would love it! I am not a music person; I generally listen to the same stuff over and over and I have artists that I love, but I also am happy listening to just whatever is playing wherever I am.

Coming up this week:

I hope to finish my two books, for one. I have a few blog posts planned too – Nonfiction November Week Two, a round up post of what has been happening with us lately, and a holiday gift guide. Wyatt and I have a fun week of school planned (although he gets a shot on Wednesday so we will see how he is feeling Thursday), and I also signed up for an online..gathering? It is called A Cozy Gathering, so I guess gathering is the right word. It has topics about nourishing soups and crafts and such – I am looking forward to it!

And that is it from my little corner of Michigan! What is up with you all?

  1. Wow, 21 years!! That’s amazing! Happy anniversary! Sometimes all you need is to just spend a quiet night in. I’ve been watching Bake Off, too, although I hate that I have to wait a whole week between episodes!

  2. Happy anniversary! And are we getting some nice fall weather or what? Today it’s in the 60’s and sunny over here! I hope it’s nice there too.

    Beavers are amazing and sounds like you guys had a great outing. 🙂

  3. Happy Anniversary! My husband and I celebrated 33 years yesterday. We had a nice night out at one of our favorite restaurants, but it was more crowded than we anticipated and far too noisy. We should have gotten take-out!

    How fun for Wyatt to see signs of beaver activity. We used to live in a rural area and had a creek running along our property. Every year, we’d discover beaver dams, but never spotted a beaver.

    I love the cover art for The Wild Silence. I’ll have to look into both books, as I love memoirs.

    Have a great week, Erin!

    1. Thank you!! And happy anniversary to you as well!! Getting take out wasn’t our original plan but I was glad we ended up doing it. 🙂

      It was really cool! How neat that you saw beaver dams! We were looking for the lodge and the dam but couldn’t find them. We were also looking for actual beavers but no luck there either. Lol.

      I loved The Salt Path! I highly recommend it. 🙂


  4. I enjoyed seeing what all chose for a favorite nonfiction book this year. I took down lots of titles so I can find out more.

    I can’t wait to see what you think of The Salt Path sequence. I saw a negative review early on, so I crossed it off my to-read list, but then last week I saw a really good review. Let’s see what you think.

    Happy anniversary!

  5. Oh there is nothing better then a really good tiramisu! Happy anniversary! I think we are going to sign up for Netflix again soon because Locke and Key sounds good but I really want to watch The Great British Bake Off. It’s a favorite. Have a great week!
