#TuesdayThoughts: Not Many

Standard

I’ve got some stuff going on, so not much of a post today. Still, I hope you have a great Tuesday.

#MondayThoughts: Snow

Standard

All I can think about is snow because all I can see right now is snow. Snow. Snow. Snow.

Snow.

It feels unfair even though it is November and this is Chicago. Still, somehow it’s like we’re getting the short, icy end of the stick.

They’re the small, mean flakes too. Those are the ones you have to watch out for, they’re all business and accumulation.

It was a busy weekend, though I couldn’t tell you precisely with what, it just was. Saw a bunch of NaNoWriMo posts on twitter…or at least one I clearly recall, and all it did was make me glad I wasn’t feeling that pressure.

Editing has been slow, especially with my glitch, but I’m hoping to pick it up a little this week. I have errands to run, but I’m going to have to keep an eye on the weather.

Meanwhile, I’m getting to it. You have a great Monday.

#AccountaClub Friday, November 8, 2019

Standard

Friday again! And so quickly, too.

I’m not feeling bloggy today, so it will be a quick one. Some progress was made with editing, but then I had a weird glitch and I lost my work which did not make me happy.

Plus side, only the first time through so it wasn’t very substantive.

Minus side, that’s still annoying.

I’m not missing doing NaNoWriMo, so I’m glad I opted out this year. As for fitness, five days, five workouts, so that was good.

How was your week?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Autumn

Standard

It’s Thursday! And what happens on Thursdays?

Ten word stories!

And given the season, we’re Autumn-themed today. Using the photo above, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words!

It’s that easy! Except it’s not easy.

Ready? Here’s mine:

Scattering the Fall with him, Autumn usurped Summer’s last light.

#WednesdayWisdom: Onward

Standard

It’s definitely chilly today, with the kinds of clouds that mean snow if it gets any colder. Coats with fake fur of all varieties abound.

Here we go.

Still, it’s quietish. Kind of like the hush before the battle.

It happens every year. Yet somehow it’s a surprise.

I admit I’ve been slow on the editing recently, and wow am I happy not to be doing NaNoWriMo. This week, particularly would be a tough one with that pressure.

Slow and steady, right? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Have a great Wednesday!


#TuesdayThoughts: Mixing it up.

Standard

So I’ve had a change of scenery today. I’m sitting in my parents’ place, waiting for a fridge to be delivered.

Good, good times.

Nothing’s that different but the view, and the furniture, of course. But I’ve got a nice little corner set up and I’m torn between the delivery coming quickly and it taking its time.

Not that I have to clear out, but like the rest of the world, I’ve got Stuff to Do.

Ironically I thought I’d get away from hammering, as there’s hammering at my place, but it turns out they also have hammering.

Long live the hammer.

It’s a beautiful day, though, with big fluffy clouds, and it’s almost as though the weather forgot all about the snow.

Let’s not remind it.

So I’m going to take advantage of my cozy spot to edit, while you go and have the best of Tuesdays.

#MondayThoughts: Monday strikes again!

Standard

I was making coffee–you know I tend to make coffee–and glanced over at the cup while gathering the rest of my breakfast.

It was not coffee colored.

It looked like watery almond milk, which is precisely what it was. No coffee.

But I’d put coffee in the basket. I know I’d put coffee in the basket.

Well, it turns out the top of the basket, the cover where the the water drips through, was on backward.

DARN YOU MONDAY!!

(Clearly that’s Monday’s fault, and not mine.)

It’s a somewhat cloudy day, and I have to tell you, on this November 4, I am having zero no NaNoWriMo regret. I’m OK with taking November off this year. If the mood strikes, I can always do one of the camps.

Besides, I’ve got editing to do. With some coffee. Make sure all your coffee basket liddy thingies go on the right way, and have a fantastic Monday.
