H O M E . . . I’ve lived in this house longer than I’ve lived in any other home and that’s just one of the reasons it’s precious to me. #navigatingthroughnovember #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #casawags #homeiswheretheheartis #homesweethome #hygge #lifeisgood #taleswithfriends
B e s t  B o o k  o f  2 0 1 8 . . . I liked An American Marriage enough to read it twice and attend the author’s reading. I’ve read some great books this year, but this one stayed with me. It's always hard to choose a best, but choose I must. #navigatingthroughnovember #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #krissyws2018reads #bibliophile #booklover #bookworm #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #reader #livetoread #readtolive #lifeisgood #taleswithfriends
5 T h i n g s A b o u t M e 1. Christmas is my favorite. I think it’s because I love tradition, twinkly lights and Jesus. 2. I could tell you the story behind every single ornament on my trees. Yes, plural. 3. I’m a storyteller at heart. It’s who I am and how I process the world around me. 4. There is only one thing I love more than the scent of a real tree...it’s the smell of a Thyme’s Fraiser Fir candle 5. My favorite Christmas Carol is Oh Oh Come Emmanuel at church, The Holly and The Ivy at home and Wintersong in the car. #navigatingthroughnovember #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #lifeisgood #beherenow #decemberreflections #decemberchallenge
B e s t  D e c i s i o n  o f  2 0 1 8 . . . To have patience with the journey, to trust my instinct and to say yes. #navigatingthroughnovember #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #lifeisgood #everydaylife #beherenow #ourworldinskies #taleswithfriends #instamood #havefaith #trusttheprocess

Day 30: I have learned to play again with this one. And I was very happy to play along with this year’s #navigatingthroughnovember . Thank you to India @ofearthandstars for the lovely prompts. Now onto December! #play #tortiesofinstagram #tortie #cat #catsofinstageam #november #taleswithfriends
November was’ busy. #noblenovember a time of celebrations and laughter. ‘Not to forget some ‘contemplation ‘. Ancestors wonder what we ‘fear’ Yet find ‘heart’ in that ‘cool’’feel’. November remember too many appointments. a time of ambivalent weather whether or not we were ready. then again #mindfulphotosmindfulmoments and ... #navigatingthroughnovember began ‘crisp’ moved through ‘puddle’(s) and ended with a ‘goal’. a poem or two smoothed our way. How many memories filled your November?
Play for #navigatingthroughnovember .  Fiona and Daddy have taken to playing the card game War with these teeny tiny cards. I typically say no to playing with her because I have much to do and don't want her expecting anything in the future. But I have to remember that what I do they'll do and I want them to prioritize play in their lives as adults too. So I vow to make sure the holidays are full of games and laughter. Memories of family time is all I really have to give them after they've outgrown the toys Santa has brought them. .  Today on my blog, My Cup is Half Full. Link in my profile to my blog at Shalavee.com. .  I thank @ofearthandstars for giving me focus through the month.  #familytime #mywisdomlessons #taleswithfriends #ontheblog #shalavee
Day 29: Our furry companions can be healing, especially when they’re asleep and not up to some mischief. #healing #navigatingthroughnovember #tortiesofinstagram #tortie #catnap #taleswithfriends #lapcat
Healing . . .  Hugs heal. Especially from him. #navigatingthroughnovember
Healing for #navigatingthroughnovember  I am familiar with the healing journey. I have been on it all my life. Today I had the opportunity to be listened to by a wise woman who encouraged me to treat myself more gently and recognize it is enough to be with me, my soul and spirit, without ever having to Do anything. I feel healed when I am heard. Thank you for that @radiantjane . .  #healing #taleswithfriends #inthismoment #beherenow #mindfulness #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #writersofig
Patterns . . . Cable stitch, first time. Following a pattern. Loving the visual patterns of knitting. This is soft and warm. Best of all, finished just in time to wear it on a blustery day in Chicago earlier this week.  #navigatingthroughnovember  #knittingoffbroadway  #shibuiknits  #knithat  #knittersofinstagram  #knittersofravelry  #makersgonnamake
H E A L I N G . . . I took this picture before I saw the word for today’s #navigatingthroughnovember. I don’t believe in coincidence. I start each morning with a mug of hot lemon water. It’s a ritual as well as a cleanse.  Today my intention is to stay away from dairy as I had too much yesterday. Listening to my body is important, but not always priority. The mug is always part of the story. It snowed over night so it was a no brainer today. #morningritual #morningroutine #krissywskitchen #beherenow #lifeisgood #everydaylife #thelittlethings #taleswithfriends #letitsnow
i heard it on the news! it is the ‘year of the dog’ in the Chinese calendar. i think i will take a nap.
Day 28: Patterns in the bark, patterns in branches, patterns in my day. Last year we were moving and in transition; this year we are settled and ready for the winter routine. #patterns #navigatingthroughnovember #treesofinstagram #mulberry #bark #branches #hibernation #taleswithfriends
My yin yang boys. Sleep, fight, play, eat, repeat! #patterns #navigatingthroughnovember
Patterns for #navigatingthroughnovember  On the blog today, I discuss how it's been Two Weeks since my Emotional Fallout. And two weeks since I chose to medicate my anxiety. I've begun to see how I had been telling myself I was OK but I didn't really believe it. But since then, the meds make me feel smoother now. The static has been quieted. A different perspective on my same old life and I'm so glad to have it.  Link to my brief thoughts since my fallout on my blog at Shalavee.com in my bio. . . .  #navigatingthroughnovember #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #eamonspencerpeach #mywisdomlessons #midlifemama #soul_selfie #anxiety #ontheblog #selfie
My inveterate belief . . . Art heals the soul. Meditation heals the soul. Time with loved ones heals the soul. Taking time for love and gratitude heals the soul. #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 27: It is my inveterate belief that we can always manifest a little kindness, joy and love, whatever our circumstances. #belief #navigatingthroughnovember #joy #christmasdecor #holiday #taleswithfriends
My inveterate truth ,.. I believe in the worth and dignity of all people. To be humane, to be compassionate, to forgive ourselves and our Humanity is love in action. Love is all you need. . . .  #navigatingthroughnovember #taleswithfriends #getoutdoors #fionamariepeach #eamonspencerpeach #mywisdomlessons #midlifemama

Plant medicine . . . Winter seems a bit early! Love the way snow falls on tree branches. I’ll slip inside after my walk for a cup of hot tea.  #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 26: I’m lucky to live in a community of friends. #friendship #navigatingthroughnovember #community #taleswithfriends #firstsnow #south_pines
Friendship for #navigatingthroughnovember  These two just strolling in the autumn woods yesterday holding hands. Does my soul such good to know they have eachother. .  #eamonspencerpeach #fionamariepeach #siblings #beherenow #mywisdomlessons #midlifemama #mywisdomlessons #autumnal #taleswithfriends #kidsofinstagram #walkinthewoods
Their bond, I have never witnessed anything quite like it. On the street she won’t walk forward unless the other of us is there too, but under trees she proceeds in rhythm with him as we three make our way to the river. They don’t bother waiting for me as I snap a million photos of trees and ones like these that take me right to the origin of old proverbs and sayings so I can know the meaning not in my head but with my heart. Today’s... a dog is a man’s best friend. 🐾 .

At night . . .  Still light enough to see, but evening comes earlier each night now. #navigatingthroughnovember
I give up. It’s officially not my chair anymore. It’s a good thing they’re cute and I’m kind. #casawags #furbabies #gingercats #catstagram #catsofinstagram #thecatlife #lifeisgood #everydaylife #sundayvibes #thelittlethings #beherenow #navigatingthroughnovember #taleswithfriends
“Life is like a box of chocolates” you never know whether you will have a ‘snack’ #navigatingthroughnovember or you may have desert. “Would you like a piece of pie?” @ofearthandstars
Day 25: The one positive to a bad ice storm is all@the potential festive greenery lying around. The house filled with the scent of fresh pine is medicine for the soul. #plantmedicine #navigatingthroughnovember #christmasdecorations #holidaygreens #pinebranches #taleswithfriends #soulmedicine
My #plantmedicine is this relaxing view. #navigatingthroughnovember
We ate out at a restaurant for Thanksgiving because I just need a break from the forced pressure cooker every year. But today, the giving and the thanks continue as I cook the turkey I bought for 5 bucks because I still wanted the leftovers. .  I have so enjoyed the time off from having to do. I needed it and I allowed for it. Thankful for the family that includes me and the ones I couldn't be with. I hold a tender place for those who felt unloved during this holiday of community. I will light this candle for you and the forgiveness that you are due. .  #navigatingthroughnovember #selfdevelopment #emotionalmaturity #storyofmyday #taleswithfriends #vacationmode #familytime

Day 24: At night something very old and homemade hangs out with something new and bright. #atnight #navigatingthroughnovember #homemadechristmas #christmaslights #taleswithfriends
Of the morning. #navigatingthroughnovember Doing edits on a short story for the next Turtleduck Press anthology, due out in the spring! It's set in the same world as City of Hope and Ruin, but several hundred years earlier... #awriterslife #deadlinelooming #writers #amwriting #amediting #fantasywriter
I will not live by rules.  My own rules included.  Those that limit me and contain me in their fear box. I begin again.  Throw the bonds of doing from my being.  And watch the breath that I breathe.  I am not made of confines but of infinite light. .  #ofthenight #navigatingthroughnovember #taleswithfriends #neon #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie
Of the morning... Finishing Bitter Orange on this grey day. I got up to get a coffee and Peanut stole my spot. Now we share. #navigatingthroughnovember #saturdayvibes #saturdaymorning #caturday #peanutquincy #gingercats #bibliophile #lifeisgood #everydaylife #taleswithfriends
Of the morning . . .  #navigatingthroughnovember  #thatautumnmagic
Golden hour in the valley is more like golden half-hour, since the sun steals away behind the mountains before twighlight envelops our sliver of earth. I finally gave up on timing walks based on sunset time in the weather app, since peak golden time is impossible to predict. And of course the prettiest hours happen when not thinking about it whatsoever. Like this one, when we just happened to be outside after our dip in the freezing river, as seen in the previous post. In the last golden minutes in late North Carolina fall, while some trees still hold leaves and others don’t, some layers catch light and others don’t, a few treetops are illuminated, like crowns... and all together it is majesty. . At night together we are #navigatingthroughnovember with @ofearthandstars ✨ . . . . . . . . . . #artistslife #meditation #amwriting #igpoets #poetsofinstagram #naturephotography #naturelovers #instanaturefriends #nature_shooters #iheartnature #landscapelover #landscapelovers #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #landscape_lovers #mountainscape #mountainlove #lovemountains #mountainlover #mountainlovers #ilovemountains #ourworldinskies #treeline #goldenhour #treepeople #thelensbible #ashevilleartist
Day 23: The morning walk to begin our OptOutside day. #ofthemorning #navigatingthroughnovember #optoutside #optoutside🌲 #riverwalk #whiteriver #blackfriday #nature #riverview #taleswithfriends
Mark asked we if there was anything we had to do today. I said no. He said that's weird. The human doings then had a leisurely breakfast. .  My blog post today pays homage to the hearth keepers, those of us who revere our ability and necessity to tend our home fires.

The fog #ofthemorning can make for some amazing photos. Just have to be at the right place at the right time. #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 22: After the big dinner, it’s time to pull out the treasures for another season. #treasures #navigatingthroughnovember #snowpeople #christmasdecor #snowman  #holiday #taleswithfriends
These #treasures are what I’m most Thankful for today. If only they were still this little. #navigatingthroughnovember
Thanksgiving morning has been luxurious. As I enjoyed my third cup of coffee and journaled on the couch, the light on my treasures in the other corner cabinet caught my eye. .  This light, this holiday happen every year at around the same time but the feeling isn't as rich as when it's here and I am living it. So here's to being fully present today. To feeling your gratitude for your life and family and home and friends. .  #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #taleswithfriends #interiors #stilllife #beherenow #createeveryday #bloggersofig #navigatingthroughnovember
Our first Friendsgiving together complete with main course, discourse, & dessert, of course 😋🍽🍗🥧🥂
A simple, magic moment. #navigatingthroughnovember No matter how tired we are, cooking with my sweetie never fails to be... #everydaymagic #itsthesimplethings #loveinthekitchen
Day 21: My simple, magic moment is seeing what was left for our trail-side Buddha. #asimplemagicmoment #navigatingthroughnovember #buddha #retreatcenter #hiddentreasures #serenity #taleswithfriends
This happy little soul returned to me today. She's been sick and belligerent for days and days. But she woke up this morning quite early giggling and chittering away. Herself. .  Her joy is infectious. Her hair the color of autumn and robin's breasts. And there was no simpler pleasure or more magical childhood moment than this day, a chance to jump in a leaf pile. .  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. We celebrate the ones we are lucky enough to love and be loved by. And hope for brighter days for those who are in darker places. .  #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #taleswithfriends #fionamariepeach #gingershavemorefun #gingers #mywisdonlessons #midlifemama #navigatingthroughnovember
#asimplemagicmoment is not something that makes your life better, but rather when something you are good at can help someone else in need. #navigatingthroughnovember
Not a fan of the #selfportrait but I’ll do it in the spirit of this photo challenge. #navigatingthroughnovember
I ran across this while putting the in-laws’ records #ontheshelf the other weekend. Easy to say this one won’t get any playtime in my house. #navigatingthroughnovember
I’m not sure what #fanciful forest spirit is responsible for this, but the leaves always fall into a path down the middle of our deck. Even after a blustery day they never stray towards the house or the railing. I’m sure there is a scientific explanation, but I’ll blame the sprites. #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 20: Finally saw the sun today when dark cloud curtains parted over life’s drama. Am I actor, audience or both? #selfportrait #selfie #navigatingthroughnovember #blueskies #taleswithfriends
A self-portrait in the midst of my day. I am 100% me all day long. I abhor hypocrisy and the phony "like me" stuff. I need me to like me more than anyone. So here I am, about to eat the yummy lunch I just prepared with my husband. The smudge of waterproof mascara and grey roots beyond need of dying are testament to my just being human today.  And at 4pm, I become Mom again. .  #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #homemaking #mywisdomlessons #soul_selfie #taleswithfriends #selfdiscovery #emotionalmaturity #selfie #midlifemom #navigatingthroughnovember
#navigatingthroughnovember i heard the ‘sound’ of a Bohemian Rhapsody ... great to hear again as well as see “Live Aid” performances.

On the shelf, take two. #navigatingthroughnovember This is about 2/3 of my TBR shelf. It hasn't budged that much since the last photo I took of it, a year and a half ago, because I'm reading mostly ebooks these days! (My virtual TBR shelf is bigger...) But I do still buy paperbacks and they do get read...eventually. 😳#readerproblems #tbrshelf #shelfie
Fanciful + on the shelf. #navigatingthroughnovember Someone gave me this little duo many years ago, and they still sit on a bookshelf in my office.
On the shelf . . . Well, technically a table. But it’s where my plants like to hang out.  #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 19: Currently on the shelf—thrift store vase, tiny prayer flags, tingsha, iPod player and Bluetooth (playing Eno’s Music For Airports) and two snakeskins. Soon to be replaced by an entourage of snowpeople. #ontheshelf #navigatingthroughnovember #ipodtouch #snakeskin #tingsha #prayerflags #prechristmas #thriftstorefinds #taleswithfriends

11.16. A quick Friday PUDDLE that will soon be iced over because that's snow falling. Yay. #navigatingthroughnovember with @ofearthandstars  #taleswithfriends #winteriscoming

On my shelves... the seasonal redecoration of my dining room shelves brings me joy and is creative therapy. This is one of two corner cabinets. For a month I'll enjoy these and then Christmas will bring another incarnation.  Fresh perspective and inspiration is always necessary. .  On my blog today, I thank myself for all the kindnesses I gave myself this week. Let the gratitude begin. Link in my profile to Shalavee.com . 5hsink you always for reading. .  #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #taleswithfriends #trendrebels #countryliving #ecclectic #interiors #onmyshelf #ontheblog #navigatingthroughnovember
This organic sage on the shelf has finally come down to be transformed into a smudging spray over the course of days.

There’s really nothing better than eating an excellent plate of food while sitting around a table with some of your favorite people. #fanciful #navigatingthroughnovember #dongsgiving2018
Today was my day to dine and hang with my gals. Lunch and wine with my favorite people in my house at my table eating my psole. Awesomeness! I needed this so much. Made my week better knowing I had this to look forward to. I love you all so much @warriormiss @sue_in_caroline_co.md @karen.phebus @annielivingstone  #fanciful #taleswithfriends #navigatingthroughnovember #friendship #soul_selfie
Beverage of choice. Water. Mostly. But I also like tea and coffee, and the occasional craft beer Porter or Stout. And at the holiday season gimme hot cocoa with Bailey's! But, you know, mostly water with a bit of ice. . . . #beverageofchoice #navigatingthroughnovember #drinkyourwater #theintrepidgoddess
Day 18: Found a glittering rock outside that strikes my fancy. #fanciful #quartzgeode #navigatingthroughnovember #geode #quartzcrystal #taleswithfriends
Is dreaming of snow in November #fanciful? . . Not here, it seems! It snowed all day yesterday, but didn't stick around until after dark. That's the best sort of snow - lovely, with no shoveling! We really enjoyed it. Then we had beautiful "snow light" all night. This morning the bright sun on the snow has me singing about how it looks like Christmas. 😊 I've given in to the fancy of early snow!! Why not? . . . #navigatingthroughnovember #earlysnow #whynot #enjoyingwhatis #morningsunonsnow #intheneighbourhood #lookslikechristmas #theintrepidgoddess

Day 17: My drink of choice these days is a Moscow Mule made with Fever-Tree ginger beer and New Amsterdam vodka. Cheers! #drinkofchoice #navigatingthroughnovember #moscowmule #cocktails #fevertreegingerbeer #newamsterdamvodka #taleswithfriends #saturdaynightdrinks
Drink of choice. #navigatingthroughnovember We recently bought a French press coffeemaker (yeah, I know, laaate adopters) and are now spoiled for any other kind of coffee. 😁 (But we'll still drink it when circumstances require...) #frenchpress #drinkofchoice #coffeefueled
Coffee, always and in colossal amounts. I do care about coffee. #drinkofchoice #colors #navigatingthroughnovember
What’s my #drinkofchoice is the silliest question I’ve heard all week. A single block, 100% whole cluster, neutral oak, Oregon Willamette Valley Pinot Noir made by @jesusguilleno of @guillenfamilywines and served at @dundeehillswinelibrary is the obvious answer. It is immensely sad to lose such a talent, but even sadder is the fact that people won’t get to share with him the joy his wine brings to their lives. He just wanted to make amazing wine and share it with as many people as he could. His humble and joyful soul will be missed more than anything else. I thank you Jesus for the past 10 years of wine, conversation and friendship and I look forward to our paths crossing again one day...CHEERS! #navigatingthroughnovember
Day 16: A typical morning with her chewed-up mess of colorful toys. #colors #navigatingthroughnovember #tortie #tortiesofinstagram #morningroutine #taleswithfriends
Colours. #navigatingthroughnovember Throwback to early October in what we in Ontario call "cottage country" (think cabins, lakes, forest).
Sparkling. #navigatingthroughnovember First real snowfall of the season last night, but it's definitely not the sparkly kind. I am not in a winter mood yet (except for craving stews and soups and winter squash). Blech.
walk after the rain. saw the sun reflected in a puddle. difficult to capture with phone. #navigatingthroughnovember2018 #navigatingthroughnovember @ofearthandstars
