Welcome November!

Hello November
Good morning, Sweet Readers! And HAPPY NOVEMBER!

It's hard to believe that most of 2017 is behind us and that the holiday season is upon us again already! Where on earth does the time go? 😲

Yesterday finished up the Write 31 Days writing challenge and I was so glad to be a part of it. I don't know how good the subject matter was or how interesting the posts were, but it really did challenge me to stay on topic, and stay focused on putting something out every day. Now I don't want to lose the momentum. Not that I'll put something out every day, but the challenge definitely got me into the habit of blogging again and, for that, I am thankful!

Yesterday, of course, was Halloween and the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. We handed out candy and tracts to what few trick-or-treaters we had and watched Luther with Joseph Fiennes. After that we went over to our daughter and son-in-law's and watched KJB: The Book That Changed The World with John Rhys Davies. We had never seen it before and, must say, they did an excellent job with it. We got home and to bed late.

This morning for breakfast I made Trim Healthy Mama's Apple Cinnamon Swirl Muffins (page 280 of the THM Cookbook) and served them with Triple Zero vanilla yogurt on the side. I did change the recipe up a bit by adding the second half of the apple into the muffin mixture, rather than eating it on the side, and it was absolutely delicious! It was like eating apple pie for breakfast! 🍎 

Now...for the rest of the day. I don't have a lot planned. I do need to go help my neighbor with a project that she's got pending, then I think I'll go ahead and figure November's bills and get that out of the way. Then I'll get a jump on my fall cleaning as I look ahead to the holidays. 

Have a blessed day everyone! And enjoy your Wednesday!

Until next time,

P.S. - As we enter the holiday season, what is the one thing that you are looking forward to the most?

    1. Yes, me too! We go to our youngest daughter and son-in-law's for Thanksgiving every year. Then they come down here the second weekend of December and that's when we do our family Christmas. My husband and I and all of our children and their families gather for a night of food, fun, and fellowship. It's the one day of the year that we're usually all together and it's a lot of fun!

  2. I enjoyed reading your 31 Days posts! Still a bit shocked it's already November as well. I am looking forward to my boys being on Christmas break and just having them around here a bit more.

  3. Thanks, Jean! I enjoyed reading yours, too! What a great experience! Yes, it will be great spending extra time with your boys during the holidays. Savor every moment! Blessings!
