November feels like a bit of a blur. At the beginning of the month my aunt came to town and we had a fun few days before she and my mom took off on an adventure in Europe. I was in a funk for a few weeks after the horrendous election results. I still can’t bring myself to pay attention to the news without feeling sick and angry so I have been ignoring it completely, which is a weird feeling because I have always been quite up to date on world news and especially politics. Work has gotten very busy but I am still very happy there. I like the work I get to do and my coworkers and I always find a way to have fun with with whatever we’re working on.
Usually the frost comes within the first or second week of October, but this time it held off until mid November. I missed the cold weather, but I didn’t mind having an extra month of vegetables from my garden.
There is a lot of construction and renovation going on in my city so I have been creeping around to document the progress.
When my Mom got back from her adventure we had fun cooking Thanksgiving food and researching ours ancestors. I got another subscription to Ancestry.com and am working on my family tree, it is so interesting!
I am excited for all the holiday adventures to happen in December. We are taking a short trip to New York City, which I have been dreaming about doing for the past few years. I haven’t ridden a plane since I was four so I am wigging out.
