How is it going? I barely have brain space. We did pre-thanksgiving last night with Brian’s family, and I cooked like crazy for 11 people. It was a delight to see everyone and all the food came out great, but giving headspace to a full Thanksgiving dinner means I don’t have a lot of brain for other things.
And speaking of other things that sap my brain… I’m so far behind in Nano at this point that I’m avoiding the website so I don’t have to have a reckoning. I am writing like crazy, though, in hopes I might catch up before it’s all over. I still have 9 days. Totally doable, right? Nope, still not willing to look at how far behind I am.
It rained today, the leaves are turning yellowish, and Brian and I enjoyed our first fireplace fire of the season a couple of nights ago. Maybe soon I’ll have the gumption for an actual blog entry. In the meantime, I’ve been reading quite a lot of non-fiction for someone who is usually insistent on frivolity. Can I recommend Unmentionable by Therese O’Neil, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, or Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell?
Enjoy your thanksgiving, and eat an extra slice of pie for me.
