Happy Thanksgiving!

Just thought I'd poke my head in and say Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

And now I'm done. Final word count: 60,775 words.

My brain is liquid, but I'm happy.  I'm done with NaNoWriMo.  I'm seriously considering just doing more writing for the rest of the month, though, I mean, why not, right?

Dreams: the weirdness that happens when we're asleep.

Ever have one of those dreams that's so real that when you wake up, you can still feel things you felt in the dream? Things that were happening to you in the dream you can still feel when you're awake, I mean.

I Run 4 Tanner. #TeamHoffman!

Earlier this year, I decided to take the plunge and reach out to the “I RunFor” community. It's something my Mom's been doing for a few years now, she has posted things on Facebook about her run buddy and I asked her about what it was for.

Let's talk habits.

I was looking around for some inspiration this morning before I finally decided to call it a night and go get some sleep.  I mean, it was almost 5.30 in the morning, after all!

One thing that caught my eye, though, was something about habits.  Specifically about a habit I wish I didn't have.

Late-night chatter....

Hello out there!

Yesterday (Saturday) was incredibly cold.  I did the stuff I set out to do, and then took a 3 1/2 hour nap.  ^_^  Had a cuddle with my dog and one of the cats decided to join in on the cuddle-fest, I downloaded a jigsaw puzzle app to my Kindle, and just lazed in bed with my pets while putting jigsaw puzzles together.  Artist Date Day:  successful.

Animal advocacy.... It's not just for Sarah McLaughlin.....

I'm going to go off into left field for a bit, I need to have a vent.  Pardon my frustration and anger, but this needs to be said.

Just ramblin'.

It's a quarter after four in the morning where I am, and I'm sitting here munching a burrito and trying to figure out what to write about.  The pets are all asleep (finally Tommy got the late-night zoomies out of his system), and with the exception of our guest's occasional cough in her sleep or random conversation between my husband and me, it's quiet.  It's peaceful.  It's almost deafening.

And you know what?

I'm content.

Just moseying along... Nice and quiet.

Today's been overall aright.  Yesterday was productive, I got everything I set out to do, done.  Today, I'm just kind of moving along, enjoying the fluidity that is time.

Let's talk about gratitude.

With Thanksgiving 2016 on the horizon (already), I'm sitting here thinking about the events of recent things, and my life overall up to this point.

Gratitude is such a strange word, isn't it? We don't really take time to think, “I'm grateful for x” and stopping to appreciate throughout the year what we're grateful for. I'm guilty of doing this, myself. I know other people who aren't, who take time each time something good happens, they take time to appreciate where they were up to that point, who they were as people before that moment happened. In the bigger things, yes, I do that when it's happened, or in the moment, but the littler things, not as often. Those who know me in person, and those close to me who happen to be far away that we only have the means of e-mail to chat up and check in with each other, you know what kind of year this has been for my household. Especially since September this year. This entire year, up to this point, has been strange. Sometimes intense, sometimes outright terrifying, sometimes amazing, but overall, if I were to sum up 2016 in one word, I'd definitely use “strange” for sure.

When one is overwhelmed, one needs to just step back and take it all in. Carefully..

My Mom texted me earlier.  She's real big into meditating and she's got an eye for detail (which is pretty much where I get MY attention to detail... Thanks, Ma!).  She wrote something that I want to share with you, dear reader(s).

When I read it, I could see everything in my mind just as clear as I can see my laptop in front of me right now, as I type this.  I asked her permission to share it with you.

Adventures this week.

Resuming the productivity on my veteran story.  But, I'm stuck (a little).  Good thing I've got something to help with that issue:

Oh, dear. :(

I won't go into detail.  There's more than enough being said in the media as it is, I'm not contributing.
