Sunday Reflections

Yesterday for breakfast I fixed a bagel with cream cheese and dropped one half on the floor, cream cheese side down. Hopefully today is off to a better start. So far the coffee is perfect.

We had a little rain last night – and I do mean a little. It barely wet the ground. Weather predictions are for just under an inch of rain for the next 24 hours. We have had a few small fires in the mountains, but any fire is too big. We really need some rain.

I decided I am not going to participate in NaNoWriMo this year. It seems overwhelming just thinking about it. I will be content to write as the spirit moves me and not be tempted to craft a poorly imagined novel. For those undertaking it this year, I wish you good luck!

A few people I know have contracted Covid in the last week – all full vaccinated and boosted. Luckily symptoms were somewhat mild for all of them, but it is a good reminder that Covid has not gone away.

I started my holiday shopping but so far it has all been online. I have a few boxes I will need to mail, so I want to get them purchased and wrapped and ready to send on their way. If it were not for grandchildren, we would not be buying much in the way of gifts.

We are, however, shopping for new living room furniture. Our tastes differ so much it can be challenging to agree on style, but we seem to be on the same page for this purchase. We are down to measuring because we have a small and strangely configured space in which to place furniture.

This week we step into November which means annual checkups for me, time change, lunch with friends, holiday preparations, and enjoying the transition fully into fall. I am really happy not to have Nano in the mix this year. It was not until the middle of October I realized I had not considered participating in Inktober this year, either. I might like to find a warm and welcoming online writing class for the next few months though. Drop me a comment if you have one you would recommend.

Wishing you a kind and peaceful Sunday.
