November iWhatever Calendar

I bet you thought I forgot. Nope...I just got too elaborate (Trying to make up for last month!) and couldn't finish last night! November's calendar is much prettier than October's. I guess you could say I feel dull and colorless when I get tired. :-/

 In November 2012 I used a font called Jane Austen because this is the time of year when I would love to spend a majority of the day on Saturday and Sunday wrapped up in a warm soft blanket reading one of Miss Austen's novels. I read that she once said the heroine of any story she wrote would always find her happy ending. So how can you go wrong?
For the past few years, I have read at least one or two of her books each winter (She only published six during her lifetime), then I watch one of the dozens of film adaptations. My hands-down favorite is Pride and Prejudice. I like two film versions of the story: one is a 1995 mini series starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, and the other is from 2005 with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.
Last winter I went really crazy and read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Seth Grahame-Smith, who wrote Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, added some undead characters ("unmentionables") to the story. Honestly, doesn't it seem like that would be catering to a very small market? I mean, it was hilarious, but I just can't see that much cross-over between zombie enthusiasts and Jane Austen enthusiasts. I know, I know--I read both, but I'm kind of weird. Plus I was just back from a trip to Mexico with our boys, who were both reading zombie books on the beach! Well, it just so happens that there is now a movie version of this book being filmed, too! Go figure!
Back to the point....
 I used the Jane Austen font again in November 2013, along with some of the same colors I used in 2012. Now I've decided that I should just stick with that theme! So here is this year's version....

Of course I made a one for your desktop, too:

And here are the days and dates in case you would like to make your own....

We are in the process of moving from our old pc to one with MORE POWER! (This is where Tim Taylor grunts, "ARRRR, ARRRR, ARRRR!")  I can't wait until everything is up and running, but with some programs here and some programs there, it gets a bit frustrating. Maybe Andy will go straighten out all that stuff while I read tomorrow. ;-)

I hope you have a wonderfully cozy November! I'll be back soon with something fun. I just have to decide which fun something to do first!
Thanks for stopping by!
