What a difference in this November's weather compared to last year. My Facebook page popped up with a memory on November 11th where I had posted about how my bossman had nicely plowed my driveway. This November has been in the 50's almost every day. Needless to say, I much prefer this year. While I hope that bodes well for the entire winter, I know better. As far as I know, it's supposed to be a harsh one, and I'm not looking forward to it.

Lately it seems I'm not really looking forward to anything. The holiday season is beginning, and normally I would have at least done some shopping already. So far the only things I've purchased are a couple of items my daughter found for her hubby and Griffin that I'm paying her for. The whole idea of doing anything festive just is not appealing to me at all, and I don't know what my damn problem is.

Maybe it's just that I still don't really feel quite right. I don't know what that's about, either. It's been such a weird year healthwise, and I keep feeling like I'm just waiting and watching for some new strange thing to crop up to derail me.

Or maybe today being the 16th anniversary of my dad's death is lurking in my brain. I don't know. I just want to snap out of this shit mood and get on with it.

I did this mani a few weeks back. I don't remember what my original intent was. I know that I did a black base and tried something that failed. So I did this quickly because of course it was late at night and time for bed.
Kleancolor Metallic Black, Essie Good as Gold, Uber Chic UC 4-03 stamp
This was the first time I've used Kleancolor Metallic Black as a base, and I liked it. After whatever I initially attempted wasn't working, I took Essie Good as Gold and stamped this design with the Uber Chic UC 4-03 plate.

Even though it was sort of a replacement mani, I actually liked this one. I liked how it looked like gold strands were running across my nails.

Speaking of Uber Chic, they need to stop making stuff I want. I just got their new Christmas plate and the #6 series of plates last week. I just can't resist their stuff!

It would make Christmas shopping so easy if everyone was just a nail fanatic.
