What I Learned This Fall

I am linking up with Emily P Freeman and What I learned this fall. Check out the other contributors.


My youngest joined the band.  So for the first time really since 1990, I have been going to High School Football Games.  It's weird.  I am with the band. I am a Band Mom.  I played viola in the my high school orchestra.  I literally only know about band  thanks to my band friends from High School. My son's high school field show was  " New World" with music from Antonin Dvorak. Their field show is based on NASA's Apollo 11 Mission .  We even had our own Apollo 11.  I thought they did incredible.

While people were deep into talking politics, I decided to grow beets.  I don't think they are that controversial. Now, brussel sprouts that is a controversial vegetable


My topic for 31 days was a bit different this year. I always learn something about myself when I post for 30 days.  I love the discipline of it.  I have learned I write better when I pre-write these type of series.  I managed to pre- write about 80% and I think that leaves some flexibility to be spontaneous. Here is the link to all that goodness.

Love this kids imagination - we have a Lego Titanic. Lots of hours have been spent sinking the Titanic
My before school kid is totally into the Titanic.  His parents and I have no idea what sparked that.  But it has led to some interesting before school activities

I was told this was an artifact - ha ha

of course we made icebergs

What I Read November

I am linking up with Modern Mrs Darcy's Quick Lit.  Check out what everyone is reading.

Sometimes November reading is hit or miss.  When I am stressed, I like to re-read books I have read already.  I have been re-reading Outlander perhaps not the best use of my time but a lovely diversion from my real life.

Something new to me I read was the Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.  This book had been hyped a lot last year.  Since I get my books through my local library, it seems like I read books a year later than everyone else. I thought it was good and suspenseful. The general story line is Lo, a travel writer, boards a luxury yacht/cruise ship on its maiden voyage and sees something unsavory.  I really didn't see that ending coming .  I liked it.  I also love that it is a book I can recommend to my Mom.

Wordy Wednesday- Letter Board Mayhem

I put up this great saying in honor of my Birthday

Look what I found my sign turned into.  I tell you what no one respects their elders.
