Holiday Rush

The busy holiday season is upon us! Don’t blink; December will flash by. Parties, food, parades, food, carols, food, gifts, food, and plenty to eat. Yeah. I believe I hit my calorie quota for the month in the first week! But overall, it’s been a good time, full and festive.

My blogging brain has kinda been on holiday though. Bummer. I’ve spent more time consuming content rather than creating it. And I don’t mean just eating all the food. Mostly it’s been watching movies or playing games. Lots of fun!

Besides my blogging kinda hitting a slump, so has my reading. I bet they’re related! I’m over half-way through reading Dune for the first time. I was hoping to finish it before the end of October. Now I wonder if I’ll even finish it before this decade is over! I think my goodreads goal for this year was to read 13 books; I’m behind.

Speaking of goals, it’s also the time of year for looking back and seeing what we’ve accomplished and setting new goals for the upcoming year. Can eating more food and playing more video games be a goal? Nah, too easy.

Welcome To December

Hello there, blogosphere. Been pretty quiet out there, at least for me, since November. My blog muscles may have atrophied a wee bit. I had dedicated my writing discipline and time to typing my story for NaNoWriMo2019. I didn’t reach my word-count goal (not surprised), but it went well. I plan to keep writing my story long-term, but the pace will slow so that I can blog more often.

November was a busy month. I had trips and vacations and holidays. Funny thing is, I had extra time both off from work and also on the job. And now we have arrived at the last month of the year. And of the decade!

Over Thanksgiving break, my family began decorating and preparing for Christmas, kicking off the holiday season in traditional fashion. It’s been fun! The mood has been festive and joyous. I think my favorite part so far was wrapping presents to put under the Christmas tree. The thought of making others happy when they open gifts from me, seeing their smiling faces in my mind, has already given me joy.

Lord willing, we will arrive at the anticipated dates later this month to celebrate blessings with family, most of all the gift of Christ at Christmas. I’m looking forward to it.

Meanwhile, I’ll be enjoying the Holiday festivities sprinkled throughout this month. I hope to be blogging more often too. I know not everyone celebrates the holidays this time of year. If you do, I hope your Thanksgiving was good and that the rest of your year and decade will be great!
