I made it through the difficult days, from my birthday until my wedding anniversary. Days in which my beloved is missed dearly. Time to let the grief drift into the background and get back on track and in focus.
I seem to be doing better, at least if word count is an indicator. October was a haze. I can’t really say what I was busy with. My calendar shows some activity but not the hectic pace I felt. It must have been “the list” accomplishments. The rest of the defunct patio covering was demolished, winter 2015 yard cleanup, shower caulking (for tile install), stucco repaired and finishing off a 4 month project to install 1,100 sq. ft. of bamboo flooring. Rub knees, take a deep breath!
Last night, I had a few friends in and we laughed our socks off at Pitch Perfect 2! Good friends, good food, roaring fire in the fireplace and something to laugh at. I recommend it highly to improve your sleep patterns.
November is NO-vember. No to any new projects, requests or pleading. I have two birthday parties to host for grandchildren (14 and 9). I am the Municipal Liaison for NaNoWriMo for the county I live in. I will celebrate Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving visitors. Last, but not least, is a commitment to myself to write 50,000 words in the month of December for the National Novel Writing Month. National Novel Writing Month
To keep up with the commitment, I must write 1,667 words per day. I’m a little behind but I’ll catch up. I missed a few consecutive days but am committing to write every day regardless of how many yeowls the cat makes and squawks the chickens produce.
