November 2020 Randoms

In no particular order...

These were a delicious and delightful discovery to make! I just ordered more for my stocking. 😄 They're from a chocolate shop in Salem (yes, that Salem).

These chocolate mousse pumpkins are also really good! I wish Trader Joe's sold them year-round, but it's a very good thing for my health that they don't!

A pretty sunrise

Cute masks. There's an error here--the Tory Burch masks are $35 for a set of three, not five.

I read a magazine article about death, and thought this picture was kind of clever.

Speaking of which 😞, this paw print impression of Boo Boo's that was sent to me from the vet hospital is precious and I will treasure it always. I miss him so much.

I like moody, cloudy skies.

I think the not-very-much-talked-about epidemic of mothers who have a drinking problem is a serious issue for women and their families in this country. 
And I detest the phrase "mommy juice."

I'm incredibly thankful that the Word of Wisdom has saved me from this. For many reasons I could have easily fallen into this trap as a coping mechanism in my life. But I never have, and I never will.

Too pretty not to photograph 😍😋


Sam's class dressed up as M&Ms for a school thing. So simple and cute!

Speaking of Sam and sweet things, Sam made me the SWEETEST card! It means so much to me!

Public service announcement! Look for this starting tonight until Christmas! 

This alignment hasn't happened since the Middle Ages. The next one will be 2080 (I'll be 100!), and the next one after that? 2400!

This chicken pot pie turned out delicious.

Totally random but I like how my feet do this. 🤷

I took these pictures of my bookshelves for a gratitude post on Facebook.

The November Dishscape was so pretty, and I liked the sound of the running waterfall. Peaceful white noise is so nice to have on in the background.

I finally found a solution for the container-less hand soap and dish soap by the kitchen sink. I didn't like them just hanging out with nothing to contain them. Too much opportunity for mischief. 😆

I'd been looking for a pretty little silver wire basket for years to hold them, and you would think that wouldn't be very hard to find, but I never found one that would work. But I did come across a desk organizer at Homegoods that fit the bill perfectly!

This was even better than a silver wire basket! They are each perfectly contained! 🙌

I've been very pleased with this unconventional solution 👏

The success of my life is measured by checkmarks. I'm only half-joking! ✔✔✔
I also totally relate to this guy: "Routines help. A very clean house keeps me in a good mental space..."

This was unbelievable and definitely par for the course for 2020: we had an earthquake tremor in Massachusetts on a Sunday morning in November! I was downstairs near the kitchen and felt a rumble on top of the house. I went outside to see what it was because seriously, what could that have been? A few minutes later, the notifications popped up on my phone. I had never experienced this before! 

Bentwood and his taco bed. LOL

I went out to lunch at Stone's with Meredith and Sharalyn two days before Thanksgiving and got one of my favorite meals. The way they cook their salmon is sooo good!

This was in my town's police report. I think it's so funny!
Watch out for elderly women with pine sticks! 😂
