I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

My Photo Diary: November


Did someone forget to send me the memo that it's December?
Well, shut my mouth!

As you can see, I'm five days late with my November photo diary,
and that pretty much sums up what kind of month it's been.
I've had my nose to the grindstone, working on my fundraising event, 
and the whole thing has left me bleary-eyed.
I've had very little time to spend on my blog,
and in fact, my editorial calendar is pretty much in the crapper,
with blog post after blog post falling by the wayside. 
To make matters worse, I've got egg on my face,
because I haven't had time to visit my favorite bloggers in weeks 
(please forgive me - I'll be back).
Man, this retirement life is exhausting!

I did manage to take some snaps, though...

Bet we were the only ones to have Thanksgiving dinner in "Oz." My cousin left decorations up from a Wizard of Oz party she had - the ribbons around the chandelier are the bottom of the hot air balloon.  She is SO talented!
