Wrapping Up {November 2019}

I may not have achieved quite everything that I wanted to this month, but at least I am on time with my wrap-up post! Read on to see which books I read this month, which goals I made progress on, and what I’m starting to sweat about.

November TBR Goals (posted here):

So, I didn’t do as well on my goals this month as I would have liked to. I did what I could, and I just couldn’t do everything I wanted this month. And that’s okay! For some reason this month felt shorter than usual.

Most of my “free time” this month was spent working on coordinating a Staff Association project. We sold Pumpkin Grams (little bags of snacks/candy) as a fundraiser for future events, and staff could choose to have them sent to anyone in the system. We have branches all over the county, and delivering some of them ended up more difficult than I expected! By the end of today they should all be delivered, and I will breathe a sigh of relief!

I also knit several rounds on the sweater I’m making. It, too, is not going as quickly as I would like, but it is coming and should get done in time. I realized that I made a mistake when I placed the stitches for the sleeves on salvage yarn, but I think I can fix it when I go back to knit the length of the sleeves. Fingers crossed.

My favorite podcast this month was Deck the Hallmark (no surprise there). I don’t have a favorite song this month, at least not to listen to. I went ahead and got out some of my Christmas piano music, and my favorite piece at the moment is Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s arrangement of Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desire with Angels We Have Heard on High.

I’m finishing out the month with a few days off for Thanksgiving. It’s been good to spend intentional time with my immediate family. And, today my Dad is helping me change the oil in my car. I would so much rather deal with scheduled car maintenance than the shopping crowds today! The only possible exceptions I’m considering going out for are a one-day-only craft bazaar set up at a local coffee shop, and the consignment shop I used to work at. Other than that, I’ll probably help with some housecleaning so we can get the Christmas decorations up soon.

What was the best thing you read in November?

Until the next chapter,
