November is that liminal time between the last of the harvests and the beginning of the Winter. For me, it's always been a time of floating between jobs, projects and nesting to prepare for the cold months.
Because we Canadians have already had our Thanksgiving, there is not a particularly festive atmosphere around this month (except, perhaps for those people who decorate for Yule/Xmas early.) I was joking with a friend the other day, that November is merely my chocolate detox month between Halloween and Christmas.
Still, I feel a renewed sense of energy and interest in accomplishing things on my to-do list this month. Luckily, I've stocked my to-do list with fun items as well as the usual responsibilities.

~ Learn how to make Eggs Benedict. I had a fun breakfast with the girlfriends this morning, and had the most incredible Eggs Benedict. I'm still reeling from the amazing Hollandaise. Martha has a recipe I'm going to try.
~ Spend more time with my personal practice. My meditation time has been sadly brief of late. More connecting to the gods of my understanding is needed as well. I found this post by Star Foster, about "worship" in Witchcraft, of interest today.
~ Detox. All joking aside, I ate entirely too much chocolate in October!
~ Get outside! The winds have come, but the sun is still shining here in the Valley. I'll be spending some time walking by the river this month and enjoying the late Autumn air.
