Project 365: November

It’s been a quiet November here at the blog and for me personally. A combination of nothing at all happening and then everything happening at once.

For the first couple of weeks I was waiting for the man to come back from his work trip to the States, where he had been for just about a month. So that waiting part can definitely be classified as the quiet part of the month. A few days after his return my folks came over for their first ever visit to Bahrain. And that’ll be the everything happening at once part of November.

So with the folks over there was a little bit of sight-seeing. Showing them what Bahrain has to offer.

Tried to continue the trend, from October, to catch up on films. In a nutshell: Disappointing – Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Don Jon; Twisted – Filth; Terrifying – Terror at the Mall. Watching both Touching the Void and Terror at the Mall did reignite my need to keep watching more documentaries. It’s been so long.

Sadly the end of November has been capped off with a bout of bronchitis for me. YAY! Humph.

Check out all of this year’s photos so far.

What’s happening in December?

Well, there’s that big holiday some call Christmas where we’ll be hosting Christmas. Planning has already begun. The menu’s not quite set. Soon!

New Years needs some sort of planning. Though, I’ll be just as happy spending New Years with good friends and good booze. Those two might be the same thing…

Anything else that December has to offer will be a complete surprise.


  1. Always look forward to your November round up of pics, thought I’d missed it last month! You actually look more chilled out than I’ve seen you in a long time. Shame about the chest infection, hope you get better soon!

    • Nah, just running a little late! Been a bit lax on the blog recently.

      The Bahrain way of life is now seeping into my pores πŸ˜‰

  2. Nice new set of pics this month, Jaina! I’m with you on SLP, I too found that disappointing. Looks like we’re in the minority on that opinion, though. πŸ˜› Anyways, hope you have a nice holiday season!!

    • It had potential, but towards the end you knew where it was heading. And this is going to go WAY against the masses here, but I didn’t see what was so special about Jennifer Lawrence in the film. Then again, I don’t see what’s so special about her anyway!

      • Oh yeah, I’m right there with you, I wasn’t impressed with her in that movie at all. She can be alright sometimes, but for the most part, I don’t really get it about her, either. Heh, I usually get a lot of flack for those opinions, so it’s nice to see I’m not the only one who feels that way. πŸ˜›

    • I was really confused and thought there was something wrong with Chrome or my eyes when I kept seeing the text going “bitty”. OLD LADY BRAIN.

  3. Wow, that does sound really busy! I hope your parents had a fun time visiting you.

    Aww, sorry to hear you didn’t care for Silver Linings Playbook. I loved it. Then again, I haven’t seen it since I saw it in theaters, so I’ll have to watch it again soon.

    Any movies you’re really looking forward to seeing this month?

    • I just want to catch up on all the things I’ve missed out on – Gone Girl, Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, The Babadook – I had a list somewhere!

      There were a few things in Silver Linings Playbook that frustrated the hell out of me, but not enough to make me switch off. So that’s something, ha!

  4. Sorry about the bronchitis! I’ve got this sinus thing that won’t go away. Anywho, I liked your self portrait, the lamp, and the last one. The clouds are giving the photo great lines of movement.

    • Thanks Lisa. Nearly cleared up. Nearly. Hope you feel better soon. Sinus things are awful. Coming from a long time sufferer of sinusitis!

  5. That final picture is great with the reflection in the water and clouds above. The architecture in Bahrain is quite exotic! I’ve not played squash, it looks like fun, especially if you are two.

    • Bahrain’s architecture is definitely one of a kind. Sometimes I find myself missing the old English buildings though.

      Squash is great – tough work out! But a lotta fun.
