November Wrap-Up

Not an ungood month, by any stretch of the imagination. 

Began it by finishing up an Arthur C. Clarke anthology of fun SF short stories.  Revisited JFK via Stephen King (major nostalgia factors for both).  Polished off a trio of classics (Jekyll and Hyde, Billy Budd, All Quiet on the Western Front).  Did some pro-Church research on the Crusades by reading a book on the subject and skimming two others.

Family-wise, the girls finished their soccer seasons on high notes with strong finishes for final games.  Patch a future potential warrior on offense; Little One solidifying her status as a clutch goalie.  The latter also began basketball practices – and I mean, rigorous, hard-core practices – by being the least yelled-at by her coaches, and the town team began the season with a 1-2 record in the local county tournament, though they could very well have finished 2-1.

There was the whole to-do with the election, the Thanksgiving holiday, lots of politics in the news re: amnesty, the Ferguson verdict, blah blah blah.  Me and Little One served once at our parish, there was a beautiful ceremony for one of the priest’s fortieth anniversary.  There was also the death of Squeak, beloved hamster and family member since Christmas 2013.  And, of course, lots of snow between lots of leaf raking.

December looks to be shaping up pretty well for us.  We’ll see; I need to wait a week or so for a post explaining possible developments.  But I’m optimistic, which in itself is saying something, especially if you recall some of my posts from earlier in the month.

Anyway – see ya, November!
