November Greetings to You…
I hope that all is well with you as we see Thanksgiving creeping around the corner. It’s already that time of year to start thinking about Christmas presents, cards, and decorating the house. Where has the time flown? The twins, pups and I are planning our annual trip up to Big Bear Mountain. There’s been a dusting of snow and the girls are hoping for a lot more so that they can snowboard while we are there.
I recently celebrated my 42nd birthday with my mom and sister. We went to this fabulous place called The Melting Pot, which is a fondue restaurant. I think I ate until I could eat no more. My mom took me shopping and then a couple of days later surprised me with a copy of Nicholas Sparks’ new one The Best of Me. So far, so great (but, to be expected from one of favorite authors).
For my birthday, I treated myself to a couple of goodies and also got my hair all chopped off.
(I got 3″ taken off my hair… EEK. It will be the perfect length by Christmas time, I’m sure.)
In preparation for the Fall/Winter season, I cut back my overgrown garden in the front yard. It’s nearly bare with the exception of my perineals. We had some wonderful rains over the past 24 hours and I’m hoping for a bit more. I’d like to plant some bright, colorful pansies next weekend and fill in the bare spots with fresh bark.
I’ve also been making little home repairs throughout the house. I’m realizing that I’m falling in love with my house all over again now that I know that the girls and I are safe in our new mortgage. It’s such a sense of relief after an anxious year of not knowing what the future would hold.
O.K. time to gush about my favorite new show of the season… REVENGE! This is the juiciest and most addictive drama since Dynasty! There is intrigue, love, lust, jealousy, and it is filled with a cast of great characters. My two favorites are:
Emily VanCamp portrays Emily Thorne who is the main character who is seeking revenge for the death of her father, who was framed.
Victoria Grayson, played by Madeleine Stowe, is the housewife next door who was involved with Emily’s father, but betrayed him and sent him to jail.
I can’t get enough of this Wednesday night show (ABC). If you are able to get it on-demand or on the web, I highly recommend it!
Well, here’s to a safe and happy week to my friends and readers!
