Thankful This Year!

My friends, it has been quite a while. November has really been an adventure, and I'm sorry that I have not been able to post as often as usual because of it. After being sick for almost the entire month, and with a nasty upper respiratory infection that resulted in a continuous cough afterwards that kept me from singing and sleeping, I have made it to Thanksgiving with nothing more than the urge to clear my throat.

I am so blessed this year, and so thankful for all that God has done for me and my family. Without Him, I would have nothing in this world, but with Him, I have everything I'll ever need and more. I'm also very thankful for my wonderful, amazing family, the love we all share, and for my friends and loved ones! Wishing you all a great Thanksgiving full of God's love and grace!

Dinner was amazing. My mom outdid herself again this year, and I'm always in awe at the amount of skill she has preparing this huge yearly meal. For hours she's in the kitchen, and she takes it all as such an art that we all just sit back and watch, lest we interrupt the artist at work. At the end of her cooking spree, we had a beautiful meal set before us. It was so stupendous that I forgot to get a picture of it! But I did manage to snag some shots of her favorite dishes. What fun subjects they were, indeed!

Now I have pie to look forward to for breakfast, and the blessing of having spent another holiday with my family. ♥

Wishing you all a good Thanksgiving, and many more to come with you and your families!
(May you also be healthy and not have to endure what I went through over the past few weeks.)

P.S. The Christmas decorations have been up for a little while now. Aren't they lovely?

The Lasts of October

These were the last days of October. What a great month it was! Very busy, bright, and beautiful.

It's November now, and so far the month has started off with me getting an upper respiratory infection. Not the ideal way to start, but I'm alive, so I won't complain too much! Hopefully I'll be able to post here a little more (October was SO busy), sharing my adventures with you all...when I'm not coughing so badly. Choir rehearsal may be out today. Meh.

The fall color was here for about a week, also! I was so happy to see it had arrived, noting that it had been a tad late. Yesterday, however, and arctic blast came through, and the trees are completely without leaves. The ground, however, can't be seen at all for all the leaf litter! Goodness me!

Have a great November, dear readers! Hope you all are doing well!

My dears, how I have missed you! Things have been so busy here that I have not had time to stop by and write here for a bit! But all is well.

• My driver's exam is on Friday, and I'm nervous in the normal amount. Prayers would be appreciated, as I really want and need my driver's license.

• Secondly, my Mondays of volunteering at a pregnancy center may soon become Tuesdays as well. This is not official, but I'm highly considering it for the job experience it gives.

• Thirdly, after being convinced by several friends to participate, I've been spending the last five days writing 1688 words of my novel a day for this year's NaNoWriMo! It's been an exhilarating blast so far, and I must say I shall be sad when it's over. I've written 8k words so far, and that's two and a half chapters of the novel that has just been sitting on my computer for years. I'm so happy to finally have to needed push to write the book I love to pieces. This is what I needed, but what really bums me is that I just realized that I'm going to be on vacay for seven days.... No computer. Bummer for NaNo, but I shall survive somehow!

Anywho, just wanted update you all and let you know that I'm not dead. =D

Have a great Tuesday, everyone! ♥
