Daisy Digest: November 2019

‘Tis the end of the month and that’s a good time to look back and take stock a wee bit. Welcome to Daisy Digest, a compilation of the highs and lows, the things to be grateful for, and more, from the past month.

November 2019

Blooms and wilts (highlights and challenges)

  • Bloom: The most beautiful winter-like amber light Friday morning, and shades of it lasted all throughout the day.
  • Wilt: Being patient while allowing the cortisol levels return to normal after so long, and that takes time.

Bouquet of Gratitude

  • being able to actually do nothing on all the calendar days marked ME
  • choir peeps
  • remembering my glasses each time I went to the library (for a change)
  • well-lit and fully stocked grocery stores
  • the man who closed the freezer door there as I realized it didn’t close as I walked away
  • tacos for Thanksgiving dinner
  • enjoying my weirdness
  • being able to rent movies on my TV (see below)

Daisy Delights (more in the sidebar under the same name)

The Last JediKnowing The Rise of Skywalker arrives in December, I needed to still see this one. It’s too long and too disjointed in its telling of three similar stories, but I liked it, especially for $3 from the comfort of my couch. I might actually break my I NEVER go to the movie theater anymore rule for the final chapter, though.

GilMORE the Merrier: A TV station here in the states for several years now has shown all 153 episodes of Gilmore Girls, in order, all Thanksgiving week. Every time I needed a break or wanted to visit a happy place, I turned on the flatscreen and visited Stars Hollow.

How could I not?: I’ve loved this singer for some time. I was surprised to see her on a country music awards show, but then again, I was surprised there wasn’t much country music on said country music awards show. Enjoy the beautiful song stylings of Pink.


Digest Denouement

I am posting this on December 1, a day later than it should be, and back dating it to November 30. Because I would have written it on the right day, if I had a clue what day/date it was. I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep track a bit better in December, now that I’m feeling a bit better and what with the endless countdown to Christmas things I see everywhere (that may make it difficult to lose track). In case I don’t, I’ll leave this, my favorite Christmas commercial, as a wish for you…


Daisy Digest is a monthly look back at the highlights and struggles, things to be grateful for, fun or interesting things I’m watching/reading/listening to, and photos I’ve taken or videos I discovered and want to share. There’s usually a lil’ tale or conversation (my side, at least) to share, too.  Posts go up on the last day of each month, September through June.



  1. Hi – I like that Kiss commercial too – and Pink is an artist that has grown on me more and more. I really like her now but did not always – early songs felt pop culture – but then – well – she can sing!
    and is the light reference you were talking about?

    “The most beautiful winter-like amber light Friday morning, and shades of it lasted all throughout the day.”
    so purdy

  2. Hey! I totally didn’t see these, and had to look for them. I think you’re tied up in some email box that I never asked for, but Google was sure I wanted. 😦 😦 😦 I am dischuffed, but glad I searched for you.
    I had to search for someone else the other day and then when I found nothing, I searched obits. But he’s FINE!
    Anyway, good post. Good to read you.
