Hello, friends and welcome to the last day of November. It seems as if this year is just flying by. I'm sure there are still 365 days to the year and 24 hours to each day. There are still even 60 minutes to each hour. But time just whizzes by. Maybe it's because there is so little daylight now that the days seem so short. Tomorrow is the first day of December and as is my custom I will attempt to do a Blogmas. I hadn't realized how close December was and so don't even have a lot of topics picked out. But I will do my best to post each and every day even if it is just a photo.
Yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent. Can Christmas be far behind? Above you will see a picture of the candles from church. And here is a short video of my friend Debbie and her husband Rusty doing the reading and lighting the candle.
I love this part of the holiday season. Joe and I have been reading a Christmas devotional for this entire month and tomorrow we are beginning a devotional specifically for December. It has 31 readings for the season. I'm looking forward to this. And we will be burning our Advent candle each night. I will be sure to show it to you before we begin burning it.
Here is the Monday magazine for you and now I will be all caught up. It is another HGTV magazine from November 2018.
As usual, it begins with the front door. What do you think of this color? Do you like the light? I do like it. And I like the welcome mat. The rest of it is OK, but I'm not crazy about it.
Here is this month's high/low list. I certainly would not spend $840 for a lamp when I can get a similar one for $48. And $91 for a mug? Uh... no thanks.
I thought it was a set of dishes for $210. But it is one platter. One Kate Spade platter. I like the Kate Spade line but no. I am not spending that much for one plate.
Yes, please, I do want to save $100 on the goblets. People who buy these things must have money to burn. But I sure don't.
This was an interesting article on updating a dining room. It is amazing how just a little paint, new chairs, rugs and/or drapes can change things. This first picture is the before.
There was another article on making your home cozy. A little library nook.
There is always a section of "How Bad Is It" where they rate different things from Not So Bad to Really Bad. Being the librarian that I am, I definitely did not agree with this rating. Not returning a library book is Really Bad!
The food section this month featured pumpkin pie with maple whipped cream. Again it was interesting but not something I would make. I don't like the taste of maple all that much.
As a special treat if you turned the magazine over, there was another magazine on the back that had pictures and interviews with the Property Brothers.
Finally, I am going to share with you pictures of my fall decorations in the kitchen. That's the one room I forgot to tell you about. There wasn't much. Here is a little orange wreath that I put on the back door each year.
I bought this sign last year and still love it. So cute.
I have a pumpkin spoon rest on the stove. Another old thing.
And new this year are these pretty curtains with Black-eyed Susns on them.
Well, that is it for November 2020. Tomorrow starts Blogmas. See you then.
