November List

November 4, 2010

Reading: The City of Falling Angels, a perfect follow up from our recent trip to Venice and Stuff White People Like  a laugh out loud, must share with others kind of read (I like the book version even better than the blog).

Growing: Our Fall/ Winter garden.... Lettuce, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions are all getting off to a good start. The basil, zinnias, and marigolds are still going strong and the parsley is so out of hand that it is growing in the yard like grass and we have to mow it to keep it from taking over!

Gifting: The Magnifying Glass is starting up a wonderful new series just in time for the holidays: Gifts from Nature.

Choosing: Remember those choose your own adventure books? Noah recently became hooked on this great series of history books created in the same format.Highly recommend them. He's also hooked on any books by Dav Pilkey, but I have mixed feelings about recommending those.

Sewing: Felt tea party food for Camille. I am back on a bit of a felt food kick. Maybe I'll figure out a way to make some cute canoli ornaments or pizzas or ravioli...gotta get started on holiday ideas

Viewing: Mr. Bean. The kids can't get enough of him and I have to admit that I find myself laughing out loud, too. Can't wait until they are ready for Fawlty Towers. I have such good memories of laughing with my family while watching those episodes. Same with the Pink Panther movies. And speaking of movies...we recently saw Nanny McPhee Returns and we all loved it. Really loved it.

Missing: Louisiana. It's on my brain/heart a lot lately. Missing my family. Missing the music, the food, the fall festivals. I've been tuning into KRVS which sometimes help, but sometimes makes me even more homesick. Wishing we could be home for the upcoming holidays.

Eating: Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. It's that time of year.

Welcoming: three brand new baby boys! Samuel in North Carolina, Landon in Virginia, and Sebastian in Florida.

Thanks for the tip about the blog book. I found the blog late in its creation . . . love it. I've wondered if the book is as good, or better.
HAve you seen the Post Secrets blog? I just ordered that book as a Christmas gift, hoping that it is well done.

Happy November.

Likes Chocolate,
I hope your son enjoys the Snap Circuits as much as Noah and his buddies do. It really is a cool gift.

Dana, yes!I am also a Post Secrets fan...the blog, the book, and even the exhibit (Baltimore's Visionary Art Museum). Just be sure to keep the book out of little hands since some of the postcards are very adult.

Happy November to both of you!
