Once Upon a November

Today begins NaNoWriMo! I’ve decided to participate this year by working on a (super) short fantasy story that has been on my to do list. The goal is that it will help me improve my writing so I can complete longer storylines.

I’m confident that all 25 pages of the first draft will be written by the end of the month but it being readable …not so much lol.

Hope you have a great November and happy writing!




For Advent I decided that I needed to break the hibernation mold of the past few months and do something new. As a part of this list I got a gym membership and decided to check out their available fitness classes. Cue zumba

I’ve heard about zumba from my aunt for years but have never tried it. After reading the brief description in the gym app I pulled up a video on it. Zumba is Latin dance inspired moves for fitness, so you’re basically dancing the calories away for an hour lol. It sounded intriguing so I signed up.

It is fun, very fast, with an energetic instructor demonstrating the moves …and I was like the majestic magicarp, amazing my classmates with my uh, skill. 😆 New experiences always have a learning curve and they encouraged me to keep trying. I’m already looking forward to the next session!

What fitness classes have you taken?

Happy Fall!

Yellow pumpkins! 😮

Happy first day of fall everyone!

I don’t know about your state, but the mitten always loves to make a show when it goes from August to September and from last day of summer to first day of autumn. It has been raining cats and dogs here all day! And when I checked the rain gauge last, we were at 4 inches which would be like 4 feet of snow in cold weather! XD Definitely feel the change!

Wishing you a lovely new season!
