Best Things

Right Now . . . November 2015


Oh, November.  You've been a busy month.  And especially here, right at the end . . .

  Glowing hydrangeas

Here's what's happening for me . . . Right Now.

Watching . . . Oh, my.  Nothing, actually.  (Although I did see Suffragette earlier this month with my book group.  Very good; highly recommended.)

Reading . . . In my ears: Remains of the Day (Kazuo Ishiguro). In words: Village Diary (Miss Read) (for my book group; an easy December pick) (although I can't imagine what we'll discuss, exactly). 

Knitting . . . I recently finished a special knit, which I will share sometime soon.  Now that it's finished, I've picked up this ongoing sweater again.  (No Christmas knitting for me this year!)

Listening to . . . Adele.  Of course.  Just like Everyone Else in the World.   (And this version of her Hello is my current favorite - for fun.)


Planning . . . How to simplify my Christmas.  (Also, maybe . . . a Solstice party.)  (We'll see.)

Needing to . . . Make a couple of deliveries for a volunteer event later this week.  (Easy peasy; I just don't want to forget.)

Drinking . . . Wine. (Because how else???)

Itching to . . . Just sit.  And do nothing. (Because that hasn't happened in a while.) 

Dreading . . . Nothing, really.  (I think I'm numb.)

Wondering . . . If there is anybody who doesn't have Adele's Hello playing constantly in their head???  (Because, my God.  It's on an endless loop in my brain.)


Delighted by . . . A long weekend with a full house!  It was so wonderful to have both kids and their "significants" and my parents with us.  (Lots of laughing.)  (Good times.)

Organizing . . . Myself.  (Or . . . trying.)

Celebrating . . . The successful conclusion of NaBloPoMo.  (Thanks for playing along.)

How about YOU? What's happening for you . . . right now?

Great photo! I'm in real life adulthood right now. Ugh. But...making the best of it by drinking wine and doing my best to keep laughing! Can't wait to hear all about everything!


I love the group photo - a happy bunch to see on a Monday morning!

I've enjoyed NaBloPoMo - more than I expected. And now I'm excited for holiday season, so I'm good.


Love your family photo!! Everyone paired up, happy, and very beautiful.
I don't have Adele on an endless loop as I haven't heard anything Adele...until now. I'll have "Hello" in my head all day and it's great!


Frozen...that's what we're doing in Colorado. Your family photo is charming. I have shown enormous restraint by not asking about another wedding?!!? Hello!


Oops--I meant to ask you if your book group actually discusses the books. It may sound strange, but the groups I've tried so far don't seem to be much about book talk. I find that frustrating.


I'm waiting for the rest of the story. And the handknit, too. Sounds like everything else is just going along per usual.


What a wonderful family photo! Looking forward to seeing/hearing about your special knit, more of your sweater, and your thoughts on Remains of the Day. You are going to continue daily posting into December so you can tell us about all the details, aren't you? ;-)


Fabulous! And ohmygodAdele. I hadn't seen that Fallon clip! I love her sense of humor. Speaking of which, have you seen this: ?

Isn't it great to have your family altogether? Love the photo.

Hallo December.


A successful NaBloPoMo for you! ::high five::
