Status Report: November

Sitting…on the couch in the living room.

Drinking…a cup of hot chocolate.

Longing…for a quiet day. I had a busy home again this afternoon, and while I love the company, I could use one day to catch up on things and get myself organized again.

Liking…that I managed to clean a few rooms today despite the interruptions.

Reading…is one reason I need a day off. I want to get back to the books I’ve started and not finished, like Delighting in the Trinity by Michael Reeves, Family Vocation by Gene Veith, and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson.

Wishing…the dog’s foot would hurry up and heal. It’s getting better, but it’s such a slow process. My son and I both miss taking him on walks, and I’m also tired of changing his bandages every day and giving him his antibiotics and painkillers.

Thinking...that having a dog can be expensive.

Enjoying…looking after little Natalie one day a week. She’s walking now, and she doesn’t sleep much. It’s all I can do to keep her out of trouble, but it’s fun, fun, fun. She loves dolls and books and wearing interesting pieces of clothing, like Grandma’s scarves. 

Anticipating…the Christmas season. Is it too early for that? 

Also anticipating…the day when I am all done with the dental implant process I started back in February. It’s been long but I’m seeing the finish line.

Hoping…to do some sewing soon, too. I love to sew. Last spring I got a new sewing machine, which I used right away for a couple of projects, and I’ve sewed nothing since. 

Thanking…my Father for a full life, for abundance of provisions, and for peace.

Suggesting…that if you’re on Twitter, you used the #novemberthanksgiving hashtag to tweet things you’re thankful for this month. pick up the local paper now so I can plan my grocery shopping trip tomorrow.

I also love hot chocolate and anticipating Christmas, and I will be using your hashtag suggestion for this month :)


I have tried Gilead several times.
Cannot get into it at all!
I even enjoyed hearing the author talk at the Calvin Festival this spring, and tried again, with no success!
