~full November Beaver moon – 11.11.19~

Today! Our first taste of winter cold: a mere 29 degrees Fahrenheit on a very sunny day! It helps. I am preparing for a 2.5 days’ visit to the beach – go figure in below freezing temps – for a meet up with two friends. Great fun in store !

Yesterday, my Recent Reads group – there are four of us – met for our bimonthly gathering. I was late to the party (Norman had an unplanned medical appointment)…and oh what a party: we had “high tea,” complete with antique table setting: china; serving dishes; linens; silverware; and a printed menu! So delicious… we were also  given wonderful little boxes to fill with tasty delectables to TAKE HOME.

On the reading front, I finished Stillness is the Key. Really, really like this book: it is filled with information, ideas, vignettes of history’s great thinkers, ranging from the stoics to Winston Churchill to Anne Frank to Tiger Woods to Mr. Rogers… with practical invitations and ideas to assist the reader incorporate stillness in her life (and we all know we need those moments of  stillness).  I am in catch-up mode with Just Mercy; it is not easy reading – wonderful writing but tough content. [deep sigh]. Twyla Tharp  (The Creative Habit)  has a new book: Keep It Moving: Lessons for the Rest of Your Life . She is 78 and still moving!

And I guess I’d better get a moveon, too. Tomorrow will be here before I know it; I have stuff to gather and a bag to pack! Joining Kat and friends for another unraveled wednesday..

Cheers~

  1. Your Moon pic is so pretty – it was gorgeous early this morning but my gosh it was cold!! Just around 20 at my house. A trip to the Beach at this tie of year definitely appeals to me – safe travels and have fun!!

    PS That box of treats looks delicious!

  2. Yet another book that I think will end up on the TBR list—so many from your recommendations! The full moon was out this morning when we left for the gym. It was a frosty 16°. We had 10″ of snow in the last two days—looks more like February than November!

  3. I’ve never heard of a Beaver Moon … and most jealous of your beach trip! The upcoming reads sound interesting – I hope you have some “still” time to read while you’re away.
