Thursday Thirteen - Moments in My Life

Here are many mundane and a few interesting things I've been up to lately.

1. Working too hard - What can I say? Somehow, the car business that affects my company seems to be booming. I need two of me and should be grateful.

2. Playing Scrabble - It's fun on an android tablet with the automatic scorekeeping and all.

3. Camping - We take an awful lot of gear for supposed "roughing it". Next, we'll have to hire movers. Still, it's a nice change of pace.

4. Paying the Maid Service - Why didn't I do this years ago? Seriously, it's worth the monthly cost.

5. Picking Up Cat Toys - It's amazing how they migrate from the "toybox" during the night.

6. Watching "Burn Notice" - We enjoyed the season ender of this great spy action/drama for a second time after the last quarter hour went mysteriously missing from the recording.

7. Visiting family - A neat reunion of the families was staged by my brother's in-laws. It's lovely to have a wonderful extended family.

8. Eating Out - This guilty pleasure needs to be put on the back burner. There are just so many good restaurants in the area!

9. Not Writing - What a downer this has been. I need to unearth my muse.

10. Getting My Hair Done - This is a much needed item I tend to put off because the two-tone look I like takes a good three and a half hours with cut and styling. It's always worth it when the stylist's done.

11. Sleeping In - Last done while camping, this is much coveted. I'm lucky to have the opportunity most weekends (within reason).

12. Feeding Fish - My two freshwater aquariums require regular attention but are well worth it.

13. Considering NaNoWriMo - Participating in November's National Novel Writing Month takes up a lot of my thoughts lately. I need to consider an appropriate project and commit to writing 1,600 plus words a day for 50,000 for the month.

What's on your agenda? I'd be interested to know.


  1. Hey, you're welcome to toss some business my way.

  2. Well, get to writing! You've got to prepare for NaNoWriMo, yes?

    Best of luck if you do participate - I never have. Never any time in November, for me!

    Happy TT!

  3. Sounds fun!

  4. I LOVE playing Scrabble, but I can't get anyone in my family to play with me, because they're afraid I'll beat them. LOL! Happy Thursday!

  5. That's quite a list! NaNo might be just the thing to move writing higher on your list of projects.

    My current goal is submitting a short story by the end of this month. After that, I might go for another anthology piece.

  6. Great list. I've done the nano for the last five years and will be doing it again this year.


  7. NaNoWriMo....I'm still undecided myself. But I have something due in December, so I might as well, right? Good luck if you do!

    Happy T13,

  8. I'm tickled pink that you stopped to read Suzie's House. Thanks!

  9. I'll be doing NaNoWriMo this year. It'll be interesting.

  10. Wow, I love Scrabble, hate camping, desperately want a maid service, and can't get my muse to cooperate. I'm forcing myself to do NaNo, so you can doo eet too!

  11. I loved going camping this summer. And I just can't do NaNo this year. WAY too much going on.


Hope you enjoyed stopping by and please drop a line. I love comments.
