For many people, November is the start of a hectic holiday season. I hope you will take some time to sit, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the articles appearing Work & Family.
November is not only the time of Thanksgiving, it is also "Peanut Butter Lovers" Month, just the snack you may need to help you keep your energy level high during this busy time. A banana, a glass of milk and a peanut butter on whole wheat sandwich and you are good to go. Here are more November Events and the quotes for the month. I love Humorist Will Rogers' quote, "We canít all be heroes because someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by." He was right - some of us have to be the cheerleaders. November Quotes
Please feel free to use the above quote and any of our other quotes. They are provided for your use and enjoyment. By the way, the December Event Calendar will be the last but all previous calendars (January to December)will be available for your viewing.
If you have ever said something like, no problem, I will handle it for you, then secretly regretted your kind offer, you will enjoy this short article, Did I Say That? Words to Reconsider
Cold and Flu Season - How to Avoid Getting Sick. The title definately explains itself. I have been lucky this season. I did get a cold early on, but took an over-the-counter medicine and fortunately was able to get rid of it. My secret is that I buy the cold medicine that works for me at the beginning of cold season and keep it in my purse. The very minute my throat feels scratchy (we all have different 'getting a cold' signs), I take the medicine and have a cup of hot tea. It may not work for everyone but certainly worth a try.
For all of you scrapbooking fans, I am happy to pass on this childs handprint idea for yourself and your friends Scrapbook Your Child's Handprints - Part 1 and Scrapbook Your Child's Handprints - Part 2.
Also, look for these articles in November: Practical Patience, Cranberry and Orange Relish Recipe for Thanksgiving and an interview with Author Mary Claire Allvine, Ms. Allvine is the co-author of "The Family CFO: The Couple's Business Plan For Love And Money"
As always, please feel free to pass this information along.
For those who will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month - enjoy a safe and healthy holiday!
