NaNoWriMo, Blogging, Journaling, and Blue Hair…

So, today is the first of November, and I have made myself some goals.  The first is to write a lot more.  I am not doing NaNoWriMo per se, but I do want to write more this month, so I am making my challenge to just write MORE every day.  Already kicked off a nice little story today, so I feel hopeful.

The second is to blog every day.  I don’t think I have ever done this, but I would like to see if I can pull it off.  Some days it may be a picture of a finished work, a work in progress, on my pets doing something cute.  But I am aiming for daily (and even I know I am not THAT interesting 😉 ) so we will see what happens…

And third, keep up my daily journaling.  Right now I am on the sixth day of a streak… I slagged off for a while, so I am getting back on the horse… and enjoying the process again.  I hope to keep it up.  Maybe this will keep me accountable.

So, to make this post vaguely interesting… Here is a picture of me on Halloween with blue hair.  I am hoping one day to have this hair…

warm, happy weekend…

Well, Monday is looking like a good day. I think I am on track to finish NaNo today. There, I said it. It’s out there. Now it HAS to be true.

It was a lovely weekend here. I managed to get out of the house a couple times, and it was nice, to be out in the sun, and be able to walk and see more clearly… I really enjoyed it. I am working on counting my blessings these days, and to me, this weekend was a big one.

I did lots of writing this weekend, but it was also a good one for TV and a little drawing and art. I feel productive, but I am also paying for it today. My body is sore, and I am pretty tired today. But one foot in front of the other.

So, something a little different today… when I first lost my vision, I was looking for things to do with my time, as most of my usual activities were no longer possible. One of the things my husband got me was a kit to make animals out of large beads (pony beads) for key chains. I have found a couple pictures of some of the ones I made… so here today’s pictures…

What are some interesting things that you have found to do with beads?Are you on track to finish NaNo this week?

NaNo 2012- day 7

So, NaNo has been going pretty well for me… I am up to 14,904 words (out of 50,000.) I am feeling pretty accomplished. Not bad for day 7.

And all that on top of being pretty busy. Mostly we have been writing around here in the evenings. Saturday our dog had a hair apt in the morning, and we had a 3 hour meeting of the NaNos at the library. Then a quick bite, and back home…

Sunday was Christmas shopping, and a few errands. And the banks Then we got home and dh had to go right back out to get groceries. Then he came home, we had a late lunch, and cleaning the house and getting ready for the work week.

Oh, and did I mention we had a carbon monoxide leak last week? That was a bit more drama then I needed, but at least we had a detector to alert us, and atco came out and made their recommendations, so all was good.

So far November has been really hard on my body… I am super tired all the time… we have been going out more, so my body is paying for it, and my eyes have been suffering from using them more as I type.

Ok. Enough whining. I was looking at some of the art I have done, and found this to share with you…

Here are some home made flower postcards i made a while back…

how is your NaNo going? Is your body/sleep/Christmas shopping suffering?
