Fall has certainly *coughFINALLYcough* come to Arizona. It’s finally feeling cold outside, and while there are no falling leaves, there is a need for long sleeve shirts. I, at last, got to wear my new leather jacket; I have been waiting for a while for it to get cold enough for it! We have pulled out space heaters out of storage and have them in them bedrooms and Kayla and I have had our first cups of hot chocolate for this season.
I feel like I’ve been very busy even though I’ve not hardly left the neighborhood outside of church. My novel is coming along brilliantly with a word count of 26,877; it is NaNo that no doubt is making me feel like I’ve been busy. That, and continuing the adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ many short stories with Dylan, carrying books around the house for Mom as she is re-organizing the book shelves, and jumping on the trampoline, which makes me feel quite tired afterwards. No, I have not attempted any back flips on it yet. Yet. 😛
This coming Saturday marks the beginning of a very busy schedule as well, which is different because for my family, Thanksgiving is usually a very sleepy holiday. We’ll be attending a goodbye party Saturday, a family friend will be in town Monday, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving with old friends this year, and then an Aunt will be visiting for several days right after Thanksgiving! I’m thinking that I will need to do as much writing as possible this week because I’m not sure how much I will get done next week.
Well, this is all the time I can spare at the moment; I have world-building that needs to be worked on before I can even begin writing this morning. I want to hit 30,000 words by tonight if possible (if I keep procrastinating that might not happen though *face slap*) I have a short story to start as well, but at least I have already taken care of the chickens this morning.
Hope you all are having a nice November!
