November & December Sliced

I keep getting more and more behind with this whole blogging thing, now I’m slicing November and December in the middle of January! But I’m glad to review the last too months regardless. Maybe this year I can come up with a schedule I can make happen.


.6 – Pounds gained

Rolls sliced

These rolls don’t need a long time to rise!

1 – Book read, Crossed by Ally Condie

29 – Countries visited

48 – Rolls made for Thanksgiving, I thought I’d grab a shower while I let the rolls rise. As you can see that wasn’t the best idea.

49 – States visited

687 – Words added to book

1512 – Page views on Easy As PIE


0 – Words added to my book, I did Christmas instead

2 – Books read, yeah a big finish

2.8 – Pounds gained

12 – Months sliced

20 – Countries visited

25 – Projects completed

46 – States visited

48 – More rolls for Christmas. I had more than I needed for dinner, so I asked my kids if they minded if I shared some of the extra rolls with my team members at work. One of kiddos said, “No, we can eat 30 rolls.”

587 – Pages views

Now that I’ve survived December and have a year of months sliced under my belt for 2013, I’m trying to wrap my head around the New Year. I’m still wrestling with setting my goals for this year so I can move forward and successfully slice another year’s worth of months.

Slices of November

I’ve got the tree up, decorated it yesterday, and there’s even gifts under it thanks to my mother in law. But it still doesn’t feel like December. Maybe if I mentally slice November that will help! It didn’t work great last month, but I’ll try again.November baby

.2 – Pounds gained in November. (I’m blaming it on Thanksgiving and White Chocolate Pretzel Cookies.)

2 – Days at Time Out for Women. It was a nice getaway!

3 – Books read. My favorites were The Candymakers or A Timeless Romance Anthology. (At least I narrowed it down by one!)

4 – Articles written, including Top 3 Toddler Gift Ideas featuring my grandson!

5 – Christmas movies watched. Isn’t that one of the best parts of Christmas?

6Projects completed (7 if you count the one I crossed of my list without doing it).

12 – Blog posts written.

15 – Pounds of turkey cooked on Thanksgiving. He was so cute and kind of little for our family.

48 – Rolls made for Thanksgiving dinner.

50 – States that visited my blog.

52 – Countries represented!

1454 – Page views! Thank you for another new record.

3148 – Words added to my book. I didn’t win NaNoWriMo, but I did better than last year. At this rate, it will only take me 27 years to actually win!

Share your successes from November!
