Notes from Melissa
We had our first snow of the season last night…just a dusting but a clear reminder that Winter is on it’s way.
I hope those of you celebrating Thanksgiving this week are all ready. I am not! As you read this I will probably be frantically cleaning my house and grocery shopping so that I won’t have to worry about it after work this week. We are expecting 20 people here on Thursday!
If you are in the US, what are your Thanksgiving plans?

What I’m Watching
🎥 Pete’s Dragon – This movie was really well done! A note though…if you are overly sensitive like I am…don’t watch this if you are at all down. I bawled like a baby for a good half an hour after the movie thinking about all the harm that we humans do to the earth, the animals and each other.
🎥 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – I quite enjoyed this! My advice would be not to go into it expecting Harry Potter. If you do…you will be disappointed. This movie is very different but obviously of the same world and beautiful in it’s own right. I loved Newt ♥
