November Favorites

    November has been a rough month.   Through some unpleasant circumstances I have lost my day job.   The good thing is this opens up my time and energy to things I would rather be doing anyway,  however it also means my finances from here on out are uncertain at best.  
Still I have found some things that I and particularly  fond of.   So here goes,  my list of favorite things this November.

Things I Love Thursday: Happy Turkey Day

    Today in the United States it is Thanksgiving.  For many of us that means food and family.  It means being thankful for what we have.  Being thankful is a great practice.  So instead of just enjoying the meal, how about asking everyone about something they enjoyed that year.  Don't judge anyone's answers.  Just enjoy yourselves and share.

Things I Love Thursday: Freedom

    Well yesterday served me up some unpleasant circumstances.  However through those I have gained freedom from a situation I had come to dread.  My emotions are still flip flopping around, but at least now I can focus more time and energy on things that are important to me.

Things I Love Thursday: Inclusion

    It has been a rough week.   Though objectively I have noticed that  my demeanor and outlook are far more positive than they have been in previous years.   There are lot of things that I can  thank for that.   One of those things and one of those people are gala darling and her lovely TiLT posts.  

    Here are some of the other things I am thankful for or enjoyed this week.

Things I Love Thursday: Zombie Alpaca Cuddles

    There's been a lot of fun things this week.   However,  I am again a little bit unwell.   I was really worried that it might have been the infection I had a couple weeks ago coming back.   I am super grateful that is not.   My roommates,  my family,  have been a great help and very supportive.   And there is still so much I am happy about this week.   Without my regular gratitude lists I don't think I would have as positive a mindset.   On to the list.

NaNoWriMo Survival Kits

    So we're just at the beginning of NaNoWriMo and today I'd like to talk about building your own survival kit.   There are so many different things that you can put in your own survival kit and each person's kit will be a little different from the next.  I will tell you about some of the things I have in my survival kit and why I have been in my survival kit.   Time's a wastin’ so let's get started.


    I take a variety of vitamins and I use Emergen-C.    We can not afford to get sick during NaNoWriMo.  So, I find it best to just take preventative measures.


    Stress.   It is going to happen.   so having something you can do to help you relax is very important.   this month I am using an adult coloring book.   it has a lot of nice nature images in it that I can just take my time and color in the spaces.  
I wouldn't suggest using another creative project to help you relax as it will take creative energy to work on.   Rather I would suggest using something that you can just let go on.  


    Furthermore on stress,  It is helpful to have something that gives you comfort.   There are lots of different things you can use.   fuzzy animals,  your favorite nephew,  or a beloved plushie.   this month in my survival kit I'm using Gregory my new zombie alpaca.   He's  soft,  cuddly,  green,  and he has a very determined look in his face.    Gregory is my mascot this month.

    There are plenty of things other than this that a person might want in their own personal survival kit.   It all depends on what your needs are.   What are some things you would put in a NaNoWriMo survival kit?

November Try-Its & Goals

    Well October is done.  I felt rather cheated about it.  But November is here and I have decided that I am taking back November.  I and my room mates will know it is November and it will feel like November.  Aside from the fact that all of us will be attempting NaNoWriMo.
