The month of Canadian Thanksgiving. So, because there are too many things going on right now for me to focus and write an earth-changing blog post😉, I am going to list some of the things I am grateful for:
Our youngest child’s 10th birthday tomorrow. She’ll be getting her ears pierced, just like I did on my tenth birthday, as did her sister.
Her role as a Party Child in The Nutcracker with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet!
Our oldest daughter thriving in the music program at college.
Our son blowing our minds with his knowledge and dedication to learning all about trading – at 16.
Beautiful new raised beds being built by my husband, letting me experiment finally with square foot gardening.
Finally making some progress towards our bathroom renovation. It has been years since we could use our bathtub – long story.
Finishing my first draft!!! With thanks to C.S. Lakin at Live Write Thrive for providing the free resources that helped make it possible.
Finding this story workbook tutorial by Stephanie Morrill at GoTeenWriters.com (yes, I’m in denial – don’t bust me!) that makes me feel like I have a direction for a second draft in time for Nanowrimo.
The monster being more or less quiet – or maybe I’m just getting used to it. At the very least, I’m not letting the MS control me like it used to.
There is so much to be thankful for! Mostly, I am grateful to my family and friends and all the amazing people I’ve connected with since I started this blog in June.
I’m just going to leave this lovely lady right here, in the spirit of the season. Check out the dude on her stomach!!
Have a wonderful week!
