Hope I didn't overstep, but found the site at the bottom of October's list - here's the list of tasks for November. As it is already the 7th and I'm not hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year I'll pick and choose my way through the list.

taken, either with a professional photographer or a friend.

start by checking your address list, updating those

by visiting a Veterans Home.

discard old bottles, wash shelves and bins, and wipe down

pamper yourself with a new haircut, and/or go out to lunch
with a friend. You'll appreciate having some down time and
