Well, November originally wasn’t to have highlights.
Little Women- I finally finished Little Women. I loved this book as a child, but never knew why. After reading the book a 2nd time, I still love it. I can understand the sisterhood in the book- after all I have an older sister. My love for this story has nothing to do with the fact that one of the characters shares my name.
Hans Christian Anderson- I have owned A Treasury of Hans Christian Anderson for years, but haven’t yet finished it. He manages to create these interesting character- not just humans, but peas, hens, piggy banks, and other strange characters. This sounds weird to say this, but I found it kinda of funny that three hens had unrequited love- despite the fact that unrequited love isn’t something to be laughed at.
A Christmas Treasury- well, owned this book since last Christmas. I decided to go ahead and start reading the books the week of Thanksgiving. I loved how the book started on A Christmas Carol, my favorite Dickens’ and favorite classic Christmas Story. Somehow, I managed to finish the entire thing.
Starbucks- Peppermint Mocha is back
Sounds like a strange highlight. But of all Starbucks Holiday Drinks, the Peppermint Mocha is my favorite. Near the beginning of November, they had this challenge of getting the Holiday Mug- first come, first serve. I didn’t even know if they were going to do this due to COVID. What is annoying is that we can’t use those Holiday Mugs at Starbucks.
I love celebrating this Holiday. I always think that it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Pumpkin Pie. This year, I had the duty of making the Pumpkin Pie. Originally it was just going to be my family celebrating Christmas, but it didn’t turn out that way. Now, it was my family and two good family friends.
