November

The beginning of another month so time to summarise last month in numbers.  Thanks to Julie for this prompt which I’ve enjoyed all year.

And here is the advent calendar I made for my parents, inspired by an idea in a supermarket Festive magazine. The bowl is filled with 24 paper cones each of which contains a small festive treat.  I printed the labels and cut out with my tag punch.

Sounds like a very nicely balanced month mixing excercise, nature, creativity and culture. Lovely!

I've never thought of making something like that for my parents - what a nice idea.

You're on the board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

Thanks for joining in once again - so glad you enjoy it. Happy December!

Now that's a pretty bowl of cones, and such a nice idea - new to me! And I love that you danced :).

Your parents are going to enjoy the Advent season opening all those cones. Even adults like having fun. It's nice to learn another person enjoys walking. I absolutely love it. I do go to the gym, but I love my walking better than sweating it out at the gym. I have been known to walk 8 miles in one day--but I was really exhausted when I got home1

Those advent cones are brilliant.

Your exercise numbers sound very good - wish I could say the same lol

Oh those little advent cones are such a cute idea! I enjoyed reading your month in numbers and I think it's cool that there's such a variety of activities (especially between opera, ballet and hip hop). :o)

I love the way you have recorded your month Helena it looks like a christmas card. I saw those cones and put them on my list of things to do! Starting my catch up here...

A lovely way of displaying your numbers for the month. I love that advent idea, I might look at something like this for DH next year instead of a stocking.
