Day of thanks

I slept in. I thought I might go for a hike this morning, but after I got up and around, I thought that maybe I should actually have a holiday without any to-dos or should dos. So I went to Starbucks, came home, read my book outside and enjoyed the morning. Then I went in…

November means…

NaBloPoMo – I don’t know if it’s still a thing, national blog posting month, which means I commit to writing something on the blog every day. Yesterday was Halloween, and even though I didn’t go to a party or have to go to work (remotely), I still had a costume. This year, I was Mokey…

December

Well, of course I didn’t complete NaBloPoMo (crying emoji face!) But let’s recap October and November while we’re here now. Octoberwell, of course there was work, which is going wellI watched episodes of a friend’s newest project that happened on Tuesdays in October. It’s a series called the Hope Desk and it’s a free hour’s…

last day of November

Oh my gosh! I (kind of) did it! Okay, so I missed a couple days, and some days had two posts because it was after midnight, but really, I’m happy with myself for sticking to it. And thanks to anyone who kept up with my posts! Today was again sunny in the morning but cold….

Thanksgiving

Rainy all day. I got up around 7, went to Starbucks & got a donut for Mom. Read a little while then edited most of the day. We talked to my dad’s brother & sisters. We talked to Sandy. Mom & I went to eat at 12Sixty. It was very quiet. They had a holiday…

Another post-midnight post

Wow. It’s not that I’m busy in the evenings, it just doesn’t dawn on me until late to remember to post. Rainy morning. Starbucks, editing work, then to bookstore. Home, Twitter book club (first time-fun!), more editing, dinner, watch TV (Gilmore Girls marathon!), play game on my phone. Mom & I chatted about Christmas. Shopping,…

Two 4 One

I didn’t write yesterday (probably could have in the morning), but by the end of the night, I was toast! So tired! Mom and I went to Disneyland(!) to celebrate my 48th birthday(!). We had a great day! I secured my annual pass holder card (new design!), and we were off to the traditional first…

Catching up – Nov 20 & 21

Post birthday day was just fine. I went to work where we had a potluck planned for the holiday. The contribution I signed up for was whipped cream. But I also bought some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies because yum! Also, as I mentioned earlier, I made some seasoned nuts. I bought roasted unsalted mixed nuts…
