A Chill Is In The Air

I had a few frosty things on my car windshield today. I don’t think I am ready for that. Fall yes but not getting downright cold. I had to turn my heater on last night for the first time. Ugh.

I do love this time of year because of all the decorating. I have started. I don’t know why I have not put it all out at once. A bit here and there. I am painting a few wood projects for Fall decorating. So much fun.

I have tormented the cats with hanging insects on yarn hanging from the doorways. They are loving it. Good fun and exercise.

Have been keeping busy with every other household chore there is to do and taxing kids everywhere.

I have not jumped into writing much other than for some writing assignments. More like advertising to me. I enjoy it. Pays a little.

I think about things to write on a daily basis just haven’t put to paper. I thought putting it on my to do list would help but nope. I am not sure yet if I will try the NaNoWriMo next month.

Pondering.

Procrastinating.

I have been reading. The book I just finished last night is really good!

The Ocean at The End of The Lane by Neil Gaiman

I won’t tell the story because I want you to read it. I hate reading the whole plot of a story. I still read the book but sucks to know what will happen.

It is about a young 7-year-old boy who encounters magical people.

Loved the story!

Well written.

Kept me turning the page.

Author has a terrific fun, loving imagination. Definitely a must read if you like magical stuff, even if you don’t. 🙂 I think magical people watching out for you would be awesome!

I checked this one out at the library. Go me. I went to the library. 🙂
