i’m thrilled to welcome in not just another month, but my favourite month of all. with the halloween decorations already put away and thanksgiving well behind us, this month is pretty low maintenance. it gives us a chance to rest before december brings its flurry of activity and before we know it we’re onto a new year. yes, november arrives and asks for so little. it’s high time we had a month like that, but we’ll see how long it stays that way. just the other day, kevin turned to me and said “you know, for a month when we were supposed to be slowing down, we sure did a lot in october.” he’s right. we were supposed to be taking things easy. instead…
…we took off to visit with dear friends and take in some seahawks football
…we welcomed my best girl to her first canadian thanksgiving table
with october now behind us it’s time to look ahead. we have little that can be written on the calendar, but last month started out that way, too. the great thing about a clear calendar is, of course, the freedom it offers. our slate is clean and wiiiiide open. (well, except for that one weekend when kevin is traveling…) may adventure (and/or complete relaxation) ensue!
all that said, the calendar may be clear, but the agenda is not. as usual, i am looking at life and contemplating change. three commitments commenced with the beginning of this month and i’m sure i’ll be floating other ideas here in coming weeks.
- this whole blogging everyday thing – anybody else on board with nablopomo?
- 30 days of yoga – my practice was supposed to start october 18th. luckily, i got paired with the other rule breaker in the group. she helped me decide to join her in moving our 30 days to start today instead.
- an online group program/course about which i’m not quite ready to share details. it’s six weeks long and is completely based on making a pretty big life decision. you know me, i can’t keep it secret long. i just need to get comfy with it first.
