First of all, my National Novel Writing Month project went "kaput" right out of the chute. I just haven't developed the character, plot, voice....wow. I have nothing! After sucessfully writing over 50,000 words last year, I thought I could do it again, but it takes time (and creativity.)
Thanksgiving Day is only a few days off and we still haven't made any plans, not even whether or not to roast a bird. We did last year. The question arises because my spouse is vegetarian and I (try) to be most (some) of the time. No sense making the meat and then feeling bad about eating it. But...there are those big dogs in the house....
Blogging is taking up a lot of my time. I have five of them running now and just beginning to generate some income...I had to shut down two because...well, if I can't keep them current then why bother.
My son and I have finished our baby crib made of logs. This has been a six month project and we put in about 300 hours altogether. Five coats of polyurethane and it is looking pretty spiffy. The grand-baby is ready to move into her own bed. (There will be a photo in the next post.)
We adopted a puppy to bring companionship to our remaining pet after the elderly chow-chow's life came to an end. The companionship has also given the wife someone to baby--just a little.
