November Challengers


We are into the homestretch!  It is the eve of that magical month, and November is pretty special on it’s own. October flew by.  I had a lot of fun with that month. The “Me Day” was a hit, and I treated myself to a big, fu-fu hazelnut latte from Starbuck’s.  The poems were fun.  I love that Dawn Marie memorized some of her own children’s writing- way to get creative!  As for myself, I chose the old classic :”Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” and my husband went with the extremely ambitious “The Red Wheelbarrow,” hahaha.  We both failed massively in the sleep department, and that is something that we all need to work on year-round.  Onto November…


Habit:  Stay Healthy! It is prime time for colds and flu.  Let’s choose one of the following options to keep our immune systems strong: echinacea every day, daily vitamin C, a shot of emergenC every morning, an orange juice a day (or slices of orange,) or 20 minutes of fresh air every single day.

Task #1Hand write and deliver a thank you note.  The handwritten letter is a lost art, so let’s bring it back.  This thank you note does not have to be traditional either.  We could leave a note for a helpful grocery clerk, write a letter to thank someone for touching or inspiring our life, write to someone famous/ newsworthy, or send something to a family member.  Anything goes, and I think the results will be extremely satisfying!

Task #2:  Document in a Photo the First Christmas Lights You See. This one pays tribute to the beginning of the holiday season, and will make finding those first lights extra fun.  We can get competitive on this one- who will spot the first lights?
