Cold Outside

First, it’s time to put on the heavy comforter. And then the flannel sheets. And finally the electric blanket. Then we get the sweaters out of storage and dust off our boots and find our jackets.

Yes, it’s that time of year. It’s chilly outside! It’s time for It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Trick or Treating and carving pumpkins. It’s time for costumes and fall leaves and cold October wind.

I love this time of year. It has to be my all time favorite. November is right around the corner and that means Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie, turkey and dressing, gobs of desserts… and of course, NaNoWriMo. And before we know it, it’ll be Christmas and we’ll be putting up the tree and the lights and getting ready for opening presents and more turkey and a Christmas ham and candlelight service at the church. Hanging out with the family and loved ones. 

And then…the New Year. 

I seriously can’t believe the holidays are here already. It came so fast! Where did the time go?

I’ve been working on Magic the last few days. Seems I’ve gotten a burst of inspiration for that flashback chapter that turned out not to be a flashback after all. Okay, so I used a plot device but I really feel like it works. I’m really looking forward to NaNo this year. Still haven’t figured out the opening scene yet but I’m going to probably end up writing this one out of order. At least, that’s my feeling so far. Even though I have the synopsis, I still don’t have a clear beginning. That worries me. So I’ve decided not to worry about it and I’m going to just start writing whatever strikes me on November 1. Should be an interesting 30 days. 😉

Anyhoo… I have to admit I’m really looking forward to the weekend. We’re going Trick or Treating on Friday and then on Saturday, we’re off to the movies and then Sunday my old friend from high school is coming for dinner. I haven’t decided what feast I’ll be cooking but a feast it shall be. That and a nice bottle of wine. I’m really looking forward to seeing her and meeting her beau.

And that’s it for me! It’s time for work and stuff. Happy Wednesday!

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
