I Blinked!

And suddenly the month of November has flown by. What have I been up to?

Well, It was my little orchestra’s fall concert on the 21st, and so there were rehearsals and more rehearsals followed by a lovely holiday concert last Sunday! I wore a dress! Sadly I forgot to bring my camera, so there is no photographic evidence. You’ll just have to take my word for it.

I made a Special Olympics scarf! I haven’t worked with Red Heart Super Saver in a while but to be perfectly honest, it wasn’t the end of the world. I would knit with it again. If I had to.

Then it was thanksgiving! (Happy belated Thanksgiving!) Our little Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful. I made a delicious boneless (yes, really!) turkey with all the trimmings and my guys and I shared a delightful, delicious dinner with my Totally Awesome Sister.

We put up the tree.

And today I finished reading The Towers of Midnight. What a great book! I’m so glad that Brandon Sanderson took on the mantle of finishing Robert Jordan’s epicly epic tale. As I neared the end of this book, I could feel the excitement rising within me, but also I was feeling kind of sad because I know the end is coming. If you haven’t read the Wheel of Time series yet, now’s a good time to start. The final book is due out in March of 2012.

Now, here are, staring down the business end of another holiday season. Only 26 shopping days left!

I’m kind of sad that I wasn’t able to cross the NaNoWriMo finish line this year, but my arm is certainly feeling better after the long rest. And, I’ve been mulling over some ideas for next year. I might even make another attempt during another month. January? Could be!

There has been knitting, but not much. Certainly not enough of which to have a photo.

How was your November? How did you keep busy?

One thought on “I Blinked!

  1. You know, I tried Wheel of Time, got about 2/3 of the way into the first book, and wanted to throw it into the wall. Kate Elliott’s series too. I don’t know why, there was just something about the male characters that bugged the hell out of me, even as I really liked the femaly ones. Maybe I should try again, but… SO MANY BOOKS, so little time. I mean, there’s that new Elizabeth Moon with Paksennarion making a cameo, and a new David Weber/Honor Harrington book. (I admit it. I R A FEMALE HEROINE HOAR in my fantasy/sci fi reading, which is ironic considering my fanfic pursuits.) But if you tell me they get better, I will give them another try.

    I took pics of T-Day, and we had sprouts too (ours had bacon & pecans). Yours look like they had rice? Yummy.
