November is Over

So it is. And now December is upon on. Already Winter seems to be coming fast and going quickly…not sure I’m okay with that. :D I am glad Winter stays several months before Spring comes again. I know I’m one of the few, but that’s alright.

November was a fairly good month, I doth believe. We had warm weather till about the middle of the month, which was strange. First snowfall was late, if you ask me, but it’s just as well since we weren’t quite prepared for it. We were getting out all the animal heated-water-bowls as it was snowing. ^.^ We’re just about buttoned up though – need to get some more hay for the Winter before closing the barn up more, but then we should be good.

Throughout November I dealt with some health-issues – gallbladder to be precise. It was extremely unpleasant and caused a great amount of pain. It took a couple doctor/chiropractor visits to figure out what it was for sure, but once we knew, we started to work at healing it naturally. Because I don’t want my gallbladder taken out – nor any of my other organs. God put ’em there, so I think they should stay. :D And just so others know: it IS possible to heal it naturally.

I dealt with the pain from both sides – physically and spiritually, praying heavily through it all, getting to the root of the problem and getting healing from God spiritually first. I know that was really the key.  Went on a gallbladder/liver cleanse which was not fun, but it did help, and now I’m taking some specific enzymes every meal to keep up with it.

Bookwise…. I collected several books, some of which were:


“Bridge to Haven” by Francine Rivers – Tyndale Rewards

“Flame of Resistance” by Tracy Groot – Tyndale Rewards

“Forest Child” by Heather Day Gilbert – Review copy

“Worth it All” by Isabella D. Morganthal – Giveaway Win

“The Silent Songbird” by Melanie Dickerson – Review copy


Let me just note quick that the Tyndale Rewards program is really lovely! I don’t really remember how I first came upon it (it was some time ago!) but I just recently have begun to discover how nice it really is – for doing various things (not hard things either), I was able to earn enough points to get two books – print copies – for free! Isn’t that nice? If you haven’t joined already, I definitely recommend it – and if you join using my link, I’ll also get 10 points which is kinda nice. :) If interested, join here.


Anyway, back to the regular schedule. ;)

I read a few books during November, too. Those being:

“The Hope of Shridula” by Kay Marshall Strom,

“Forest Child” by Heather Day Gilbert,

“I, Isaac, take thee, Rebekah” by Ravi Zacharias,

“The Silent Songbird” by Melanie Dickerson

and “Long Way Gone” by Charles Martin.


One of those was even non-fiction – can you believe it?! ;) “I, Isaac, take thee, Rebekah” was truly amazing, and I highly, highly recommend it!!

Favourite book of the month was probably…”Forest Child” by Heather Day Gilbert for fiction, and Ravi Zacharias’ book for nonfiction. :)


Musicwise…umm…I have been listening to one group pretty much exclusively for a couple months. And that group would be The Monkees. My sister and I have greatly enjoyed watching – and rewatching – the two seasons of shows, and avidly listening to their music. I love their music. I do have a favourite Monkee, and that would be Michael Nesmith. His songs are my favourite, though they’re all so good. :)

So yes, that’s November for ye. How was yours? Did you all have a good Thanksgiving?


I am a peculiar treasure who is passionately in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love writing, reading, knife/tomahawk-throwing, and letter-writing, among other things. :)
