I can't believe November is almost over! Before we know it, it's going to be CHRISTMAS! Am I excited about that? Yes and no. Christmas has always been my most favorite holiday; I mean, there aren't many holidays that take up an entire month! But Christmas also equals super duper busy time at work, and I'm tired enough the way it is from the last two months. So, yeah, it's a double-edged sword.
Anyway, November has been going pretty well. I haven't been getting as much reading done as I wanted because I have been in an oddly crafty mood. I've returned to making jewelry (which I haven't done in ages), and I've been busy trying to plan out my closet renovation. I own too many clothes, but I can't justify getting rid of any of it because I wear it all on a regular basis. And yes, I have already gotten rid of/re-purposed all of the stuff that is plain too worn out. I am very good about re-purposing stuff. I will not throw out lace, ribbon, or anything that can be cut up and fashioned into. . . .something.
What I have read so far in November has been amazingly good. Especially Blue Lily, Lily Blue. Just wow. I cannot wait for Book #4 in this series.
In other news. . . .Well, I guess that is my news. The next Books to Movies will be, of course, Mockingjay Part 1, whenever I get around to seeing it in theaters and writing my review (hopefully soon)! I've been busy with the typical stuff: work, dance classes (did I mention I'm doing swing dance now?), Bible studies, hanging out with Hedgie and my sister in my fleeting spare time, and more work. Exciting, right?
On book buying for the month: I've been really good! There aren't many new releases I want, and because I sort of, kind of did an expensive clothes shopping trip (I needed some new dance dresses, okay?), so I'm saving my Powell's order for December and January. That's reasonable, right? That's responsible money managing. . . . .Never mind the dresses I bought (we're trying to forget about that).
Hope you guys are having a lovely November, and that you also have a marvelous Thanksgiving! Can't wait to kick off the Christmas season with a medieval-style Yuletide Feast (that's going to be awesome!!). Until then, enjoy the rest of the month!
