Nope, nope, nope…it can’t already be November!?! What????? Where did October go?
I don’t know about you but that month felt way too short! I guess we were keeping pretty busy! I hope you all are enjoying a nice autumn still! We have been having some nice warm weather here and with that we had some fun outside with friends and family visits. 🙂
If you’ve read my updates before, you know what these images are of – our beloved historic downtown Wilmington. A recent gift from hubby was a new camera – a cute Polaroid Cube (similar to a Go Pro but way cuter!) We had fun testing the camera and its fish-eye lens out.
We also enjoyed playing the tourist in our town too. We went on a lovely guided horse and carriage tour with a very funny tour guide who knew a lot about our town and did something a little more adventurous with the segway tour. Both were a ton of fun!!!
We also went on an open house tour of one our towns oldest homes where they gave talks about the customs of mourning and funerals during the Victorian Era. I know, sounds a little morbid…but a very appropriate tour to go on during October. Learned a lot of interesting practices they had back then…kind of glad we don’t keep some of those practices now! 😉

The Julie Klassen Edition. As you can see I have a lot of Pride and Prejudice inspired reads planned for this month. I’d love to mix it up and do something a little different. I have some unread Julie Klassen novels in my TBR pile, and I thought this would be a good month to read one of them. As you might remember, I’ve read and reviewed 4 of her other novels throughout the years. Two I own and haven’t read are The Girl in the Gatehouse and The Maid of Fairbourne Hall. Which one do you want me to read? (Click on the links to read the synopsis) To vote, leave a comment below.
