Y’all. 2020 has been a year, and since September and October were surprisingly nice, I figured we’d experience the same in November.

And, well, this month has had some nice moments, including the election results (!!!), but there have also been some major struggles

COVID cases continue to climb here in Dallas, and it’s harrowing. Also, one of our family members has COVID now, and it’s really scary. While they appear to be on the mend, we still don’t know so much about this disease, and it seems like sometimes, the road to recovery with this virus is filled with pitfalls.

We were potentially going to host some family members for Thanksgiving, but we canceled it because traveling right now and spending time indoors with people outside of our own household isn’t safe.

So please, y’all. Stay home and stay safe. Consider others (and their health) and for the love of everything, wear a mask and wash your hands.

    Let’s talk November highlights:

    Let’s talk November action items:

    Honestly, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris heading to the White House has filled me with relief, even though there is a ton of work ahead. Also, with about two months left before the transition, I still a few worries.

    Also, just because they’ve won doesn’t mean that the work is done. This is the beginning… and I’m ready for it.

    Instead of plugging my two favorite things this month, I want to instead share two action items:

    • Make a year-end donation to support an organization and a mission I believe in.
    • Find a way to get involved in 2021. This is going to involve a lot of research on my part and might also be tricky with the pandemic. That said, I feel really strongly about volunteering to help in some capacity in 2021.

    Now Let’s Talk About This Monthly Love List…

    To recap, my potluck, as defined by the folks at Merriam-Webster is:

    the regular meal available to a guest for whom no special preparations have been made… a communal meal to which people bring food to share —usually used attributively ; whatever is offered and available in given circumstances or at a given time.

    Now who’s ready to see what ended up on my list for November 2020?!?
