There are all sorts of amazing things happening in November this year. I just happen to be involved in one of them each weekend leading up to Thanksgiving. Are you looking to plan your activities and maybe get a jump on some handmade Christmas shopping? Look no further.
Perhaps, now that things are finally starting to calm down somewhat (and I am getting some sleep), I can get back to posting regularly on here. It has been an eventful week.
First, a hearty congratulations to my nephew Will, who earned his Eagle Scout rank this week. He worked hard for it, and deserves a lot of credit for being a pretty disciplined young man. He was also fortunate to get a lot of support from friends and family, especially his mom (my sister Liz) and his dad (my brother-in-law Dan). He’ll be off for college next year. Eeek, I am old.
In a tribute to Veteran’s day and the current political climate, The Seraphim Singers are presenting The Short Twentieth Century: Choral Music from 1914 to 1990.
What gives? Oh, right, internet security and common sense do.
This is where you ask, what on earth is she talking about? I’ll tell you.
I’m lucky to be participating in Roslindale Open Studios this year. This is the 10th year of ROS and they’re a great group to work with. If you want to start your Christmas shopping with some handmade items and also want the chance to look around Roslindale, take a bike tour, and sample some craft food and beverage, the first weekend in November is it!
There’s also ROS Home Studio Bingo.
You have to play to win and you have to be there to play. Want to know more? Come to Roslindale on 11/1 & 11/2!
It has been kind of strange that we had such a dry, warm September, and there have been some warm days in October too. But I think you can’t deny that fall has finally arrived in Greater Boston.
I want to offer an apology to all the people I should be calling, or hanging out with, or otherwise spending time interacting with, because I have not done those things much lately.
For a few weeks now, most of what I have been concerned with is trying to get some rest.
