Something Loved


We’re Auburn University fans in my household (War Eagle!). But our football team has had a rough few years. This year we fired our head football coach midseason, and hired Carnell “Cadillac” Williams as our interim coach. He was an outstanding and beloved Auburn football player himself from 2001-2005, who played for the NFL from 2005-2011. He’s humble, enthusiastic, and loves the guys who play for him. And they love him back, as do we fans.

Tomorrow is Auburn’s big rivalry game against the University of Alabama for the Iron Bowl. Alabama is a 21 point favorite to win. But win or lose, Auburn has been totally reenergized by Coach Cadillac.

Something Gleaned 


November is a fun month for bloggers who favor nonfiction books. Each week we’ve been sharing favorite books around a different theme. I’ve collected lots of new recommendations from other nonfiction readers, and shared a few of my own.

Something Braved


For domestic airflights after May 3, 2023, Americans need a driver’s license compliant with REAL ID (or another acceptable form of ID). I’ve delayed getting my STAR ID (that’s what it’s called in Alabama) for awhile because it seemed like a lot of work.

But November is when my license expires anyway, so I finally gathered all the documents I needed and headed to the DMV. My wait was very short, and the process was very smooth. And now it’s over.

If I had known it would be so simple, I wouldn’t have put it off so long.

Something Achieved


Today is a milestone birthday for me! One of my best friends is cooking dinner for Jeff and me tonight. She has promised we’ll also play Bananagrams. That’s my kind of celebration. 

What has been a highlight of your November?

Maybe you’re traveling this week for Thanksgiving. Are you ready yet to be back home? It’s nice going out, but I do love returning home to my safe nest.

Jerralea reminds us in our featured post this week to view the Lord as our home. “In addition to a dwelling with a door you can close shutting out the world, you have a Father to go to for comfort and rest.”

    Yesterday was the highlight of my November. My husband and I had Thanksgiving at my granddaughter’s house. It was a beautiful, low-key dinner (some seem to think hosting is a contest and it ends up being stressful for everyone). It’s such a delight as we see our grandchildren grow up. Of course, part of the delight was enjoying our two precious great-grands (who incidentally think my husband and I hung the moon, boy do we have them fooled). It was a sweet day (thank You, Lord).

    Happy, happy birthday! Turning 60 was kind of a shock to my system, but I think I’ve finally gotten used to it. 🙂 Hope you had a great day!

    Your grandson is really getting around!

    We need to work on getting our REAL ID. We don’t travel much, but it would be better to have it in hand than have something come up and have a problem because we don’t have it. Nice to know the process isn’t complicated.

    We don’t watch football much–we can’t always see the UT Vols games without ESPN wanting us to pay more. But we did see a recent game with them on CBS! They had been doing real well when we first moved here, then their star quarterback graduated and they went through several coaching changes. The one they have now was supposed to be an interim coach, but they’ve kept him on. It’s so nice to see the team doing well again. The coach makes such a difference. Glad Auburn has a good one!

    Dear Lisa

    Many happy returns! (though surely the “6” is a typo?) Bananagrams looks fun — sounds like a more relaxed Scrabble (& 21 letters must be a lot more fun than 7).

    Highlight of my November is starting a new job which feels like a perfect fit, scary and exciting!

    What a lovely idea, Lisa. I might join you here.

    One of my favourite events of the month was that we had a Thanksgiving get-together with my brothers and their families. We are not American but had many American colleagues and friends during our working life and picked it up then and there. So grateful for that.

    Can’t believe it’s already time for 4 Somethings for November?? My most blessed time was a nice and relaxing Thanksgiving — small and intimate which is how I like it. Happy Birthday and welcome to the 60 and Sassy club!!

    I had dreaded getting my Real ID too but it was actually quite easy here in CT as well… it’s much harder to get one for my teens though. They don’t usually have anything to verify their address!

  7. Cindy Davis

    Happy birthday, Lisa! It sounds like you had a good November. I was planning to participate in Nonfiction November but when I realized we would be moving during that month I knew I couldn’t add anything else to my schedule. I missed it last year and this year, so here’s hoping to participate next year!!! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season!

  8. Lois Flowers

    Happy Birthday, Lisa … 60 looks great on you! Your sweet grandson is as adorable as ever. So did you actually read all those book in November, or were you also drawing from books you had already read? I’m glad your trip to the licensing place went so well … we’ve had some pretty awful experiences at ours, so I understand your trepidation!
