Foggy days and foggy nights. :p

I got up today and noticed the street was wet from earlier rain, but it wasn't raining.  I noticed it was really overcast and partially foggy too!  I almost didn't walk.  I came thisclose to skipping my walk.  I got up and went anyway! Skipping the first day of the month's walk is not a good way to star the month!

I got my walk in and it got cloudier and foggier as I went. I even had to use the umbrella for a short time on the way back.  It wasn't too cold out there today, but I didn't take off my jacket!  I didn't mention this yesterday, but I went to the basement to try and get the pilot light on the water heater lit.  I could get a very tiny flame but it wouldn't stay long enough for me to turn it on.  I'll give it a few days and try again.  Since yesterday was a little warmer, I was hoping the water down there wouldn't be as cold. I was wrong. LOL!  My poor feet were frozen.  I came back in, cleaned and dried them off and then put on fuzzy socks.  I love fuzzy socks! ^_^

I was wanting to wash my hair today in some nice hot water, but that wasn't possible.  I put a pot on the stove again and got the chill off the water and washed it that way. It's a lot of trouble, but cold water is not fun this time of year.  It feels like it's coming off an ice burg. I just finished drying it and it feels great.  Hopefully I'll be able to get the pilot light lit soon and I can wash it in nice hot water. Ahhh!

I can't believe it's December and NaNoWriMo is officially over for this year. Yes, I finished a few days early, but it's hard to believe it's done. Year three for me.  I plan to write something totally different for next year's NaNo. I'm pretty sure I've done all I can with the current line.  I could do more, but I'll be trying to come up with some ideas of new things for next years.  I might even do the other NaNo events in April and July.  We'll see how it goes.  Oooh! I could do some short stories from some of my other characters perspectives.  That is an idea.  My main character is great, but hearing from some of the others would be pretty neat too.  I need to write notes. lol 

Using Scrivener for this year's NaNo was a game changer!  I'd done the last two years in word processing programs.  I'd do a file a day for it.  With Scrivener, I did a file a day too, but unlike a word program, I could go back and add scenes and things to my writing without messing up anything. It was totally cool.  I love Scrivener and I'm going to have to do a whole post about it's wonderfulness soon!


BRRRRRR Again!

Wowee was it cold today on my walk.  I was so glad to get home and get some hot coffee in my body. lol . I meant to attempt to go to Starbucks tonight and stay awhile.  I decided not to since it was so cold.  I did not want to get over there and have my car not want to start up as cold as it was.

I'm almost wishing for a rainy day so I can stay home and stay warm. :P I also have had another one of my hold books come available recently.  I have a feeling, the third book on my hold list is going to be available soon.  It's the one I want to read the most. It's the new Stephen King book Elevation. I've had that on hold since before it was released.  I've heard it's unusually short for a Stephen King book, so when it is available, it will be a quick read.  I just wish the other people who are before me would hurry up and read it. 

At the moment, I'm reading the book about the Golden State Killer aka East Area Rapist that was caught recently.  This is a book written by a lady that wanted to find the identity of the killer.  Sadly, she died before he was caught.  It's quite a good book so far.  The next book on my Kindle is Marilla of Green Gables.  It's a story that was written about Marilla from the Anne of Green Gables books. It's supposed to be about her early life.  I think I'm going to enjoy it as I've heard from other Anne fans that it's a good 'addition' to the series.

PS I wrote 15 more words for Nano. :p I'm going to get that 30 day badge!

 


So exhausted!

So, I didn't sleep well at all last night.  I couldn't get to sleep and then I just kept waking up after I did.  It was very frustrating.  I got even before my alarm.  It went off as I was fixing my first cup of coffee!  I went for my walk even though I was really tired. It was in the 40's today according to my weather apps, but it didn't feel too cold. Of course I was layered up well!

I only wrote 15 words tonight for NaNo. I've officially won, but I want to get the 30 day badge for updating my word count everyday.  I'll add a line or two each day to do that.  There is one section that is abour 400 word that I may add to or re-write entirely.  I'm not sure yet.

I wanted to see what my tree looked like from the street, so I got in my car and drove up the street.  Since I was already out, I figured I might as well go to Starbucks. lol . I got a delicious and free Cascara latte. I had a free drink on my card. Whee!  I even saw my favorite Barista.  I looked inside as I was driving off and there were SO MANY empty seats in there.  I almost went over there tonight to sit.  Phooey.  Now, if I go tomorrow, they'll be packed and I won't get a seat. LOL . That is the way it goes.

I enjoyed the heck out of my latte.  I am trying to think of what else I did. I swear it feel like after my walk, I haven't done anything!  I found a show on Prime that I used to watch and love from back when TLC actually showed good stuff. It's a show called Urban Legends and I remember loving it.  I found it on Prime and they have several seasons.  I am working my way through it.  I also found out that Prime has my favorite anime of all time on there! Fushigi Yuugi.  I am going to binge watch it soon.  They have all of the 53 original episodes and they are subbed. YES!!!!!!! So cool.  My favorite anime character of all time is in Fushigi Yuugi. Nuriko. <3
