If someone asked you what you did this November, what would you say? I think it can be so hard to remember specific days and events when every day goes by in a flash, right? So I joined up with a couple of other bloggers to keep track of the month of November with a sentence and some photos. There’s a link up below if you’d like to see the other’s participating in this project, and a huge thanks for Leslie for organizing us!!
11-1: We spent over 3 hours figuring out the flooring, carpet and tile for Nancy’s new place. How can that be so exhausting, but it was?
11-2: Today we traveled to a holiday boutique to load up on gifts for others. I always believe in getting my shopping done early.
11-4: We visited my book club friend’s, annual open house at her jewelry design store! Both Rob & I came away with a little bling.
11-5: Meatloaf was made for my hubby, so that when I’m gone on my knitting retreat, he won’t starve. I know, I know—-he’s spoiled!!
11-6: And today was a trip to the chiropractor. I can sometimes tell I’m out of whack when I get a headache, and I had a doozy of one on Saturday.
11-7: For Nancy’s new place, we had a meeting with the construction manager. Interesting, and so informative.
11-8: Knitting day with my knitting buddies! Here is Dianna’s sweater for her grandson that she’s finishing up!
11-9: And we are off to Buena Vista for our knitting retreat with about 20 other women. We stop at the Cottonwood Hot Springs on the way to enjoy a good soaking.
11-10: Knitting, knitting and lots of fabulous inspiration from other knitters.
11-11: Ditto from yesterday. We’ve been gathering here for 16 years together!! And welcome, Michael, the new owner of Liar’s Lodge standing at the top of the stairs.
11-12: Back home from our knitting retreat at the Liar’s Lodge.
11-13: So then I had book club at my house where I fixed chicken korma! We just finished the Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly and now we are going to read Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín.
11-14: Back to the design center with Nancy (the 60+ model) to finalize the choices for her new place.
11-16: This is proof positive that laughing is my favorite past time!! Catherine has the same infectious laugh that I do, and we had a blast.
11-17: This morning we left early for a fun photo shoot, and then were able to join Julie at Paramount Studios. This is Rob & I sitting on Forrest Gump’s bench!
11-18: Home again meaning lots to catch up on including laundry.
11-19: Blogging, organizing and that laundry thing again.
11-20: Now that my hubby isn’t working anymore, I’m going to have to find a new schedule. We did make it out for a wonderful walk, and here was part of our experience.
11-21: I’m so lucky that one of my longtime friends is an aesthetician, so I get to visit her every couple of months and have her take care of my skin (and pick her brain for some upcoming products)!
11-22: A cooking we will go, a cooking we will go….I have the best hubby who doesn’t mind helping me with the cooking for our dishes for tomorrow!
11-23: Happiest of Thanksgivings! I am thankful for my life in every way, shape and form. And that includes each and every one of you reading this.
11-24: Today is the day we like to put up our decorations and relax!
11-25: Small Business Saturday is our way to shop for the holidays. Since I used to be a small business owner, I always feel better if I can try to support other small businesses. So we ventured into downtown Littleton, and shopped at Act 2 Thrift store, EVOO Marketplace oils and Savory Spice.
11-26: We travelled up to Boulder to spend the day with my cousin and her family as a belated Thanksgiving!
11-27: Lunch with Stacey!! Definitely an advantage of being retired….
11-28: Rob is going to work on creating websites since he’s retired now. So we met with our friend who teaches ELDOA, to pick her brain on how she wants her website set up.
11-29: I’ll be hosting a talk at Paradise Luggage about packing for the holidays next month. Today we went there to practice and check out the logistics.
11-30: A day without anything on the calendar means lots of catching up on blogging and trying to get organized!!
