I've almost documented an entire year in one sentence a day. I LOVE this way of recalling my month and will definitely be continuing with this in 2021. As I mentioned in my October What's Up Wednesday post, I always dread November. Canadians don't have holidays this month and, to me, it's just a long month of nothingness. So read on to see how our November went. Was it good? Was it bad? Did we survive? :) Hahaha -- yes, of course we did.
1 - Sunday - Today was defined by the colour orange -- we processed a pumpkin, had Kraft Dinner and Cheetos for lunch, and ate stuffed acorn squash covered in cheddar cheese for supper.
2 - Monday - I worked, I came home, I tried to stay awake long enough to do a load of laundry after dinner -- I succeeded!
3 - Tuesday - We got much needed haircuts today for the first time since the end of June.
4 - Wednesday - We got family pictures taken this day.
5 - Thursday - The election continued and I was watching more hours of news than I was getting hours of sleep.
6 - Friday - I kicked off the weekend by having a drink outside while I painted my toenails and read a book.
7 - Saturday - We met up with friends we hadn't seen in a very long time and hiked at a conservation area and it was amazing.
8 - Sunday - I spent over nine hours outside, mostly doing yard work, with a little bit of walking, garage cleaning, and visiting thrown in there, and it was the best day I've had in a long time!
9 - Monday - I got an unexpected walk in with my best friend after work and it was so good to spend time with her and enjoy the glorious weather.
10 - Tuesday - Rachel and I baked pumpkin muffins after supper for some special deliveries the next day.
11 - Wednesday - We delivered treat bags to the youth from church who were finishing up their first quadmester and I enjoyed getting to briefly connect with church friends who I hadn't seen in awhile.
12 - Thursday - We had tuna noodle casserole for supper and it was comfort in a bowl.
13 - Friday - It was a long day at work, I was grumpy, I went to bed at 6:30pm and was asleep before 8. #goodriddancetotheworkweek
14 - Saturday - Rachel and I unexpectedly joined one of her school friends to explore in the woods and we LOVED it!!!
15 - Sunday - I remembered how to do a "performance ready" bun for Rachel's ballet workshop.
16 - Monday - The city came and took all our leaves away and I was sooooo happy!!!
17 - Tuesday - I read my book club book this evening and it was just as good the second time around. (The book was The Day The World Came To Town: 9/11 In Gander, Newfoundland by Jim Defede, in case you're wondering.)
18 - Wednesday - It was book club night and I LOVE these women!
19 - Thursday - I had a walking meeting with one of our pastors and our conversation was really good.
20 - Friday - The new playground at the school opened and there was an impromptu (physically distant) catching up with neighbours as the kids played for a few minutes.
21 - Saturday - We headed back out to the woods and then baked cookies and watched a Hallmark movie, Christmas in Vienna.
22 - Sunday - It snowed a TON today and I shoveled four times in eight hours and then I was done.
23 - Monday - I took the day off today, as the kids were off school, and Rachel and I watched a Hallmark Christmas movie to start the day, which was actually kind of perfect :)
24 - Tuesday - It was the day of packages arriving which made for a fun day!
25 - Wednesday - I was exhausted for some reason and went to bed at 7:30pm.
26 - Thursday - It was a quiet day at work and we had a delicious supper of sauteed shrimp and Caesar salad.
27 - Friday - Dave and I got almost all of our holiday shopping done at local shops today and in the evening we got most of our holiday cards addressed!
28 - Saturday - We watched three Hallmark Christmas movies and stayed in our pajamas until 4pm this day.
29 - Sunday - I got our outside window boxes decorated this day.
30 - Monday - We're awaiting Covid test results for one family member, and out of an abundance of caution, we all stayed home this day so I baked cookies and (to no one's surprise) watched another Hallmark Christmas movie!
