The countdown begins...

Here it comes....

Are you ready for it?

No turning back!

I hate you, November. I will not have another winter after this year. Florida here we come. 

Good luck to all you other WriMo's out there!

'October's over? It can't be!' AKA, 'Whoops, I think I blinked too long!'


Couldn't we please just go back and rewind this month?

That'd be great.

“time flies when you don’t know what you’re doing” by mungo thomson

Let me tell you, that, my dear friends, is very true.  Very true.

As is the following, which I like to imagine was written by someone specifically with myself in mind ;)

the character could be written to have a learning disability (scatter brained can be a symptom of certain learning disabilities)

You know something?  This month has been a bit of a roller coaster.  And you know something else?  I've never been fond of those contraptions.

Believe it or not, I've been working on a draft post all month.  (I hope think you're going to like it!)  I keep adding to it here and there, always telling myself that I'm going to finish it tomorrow.  And then suddenly it's tomorrow, and the "Great Roller Coaster of Life" laughs and sends me into a tailspin.  Another one.


 If that's true, Mr. Chesterton, I could fill a book.  A big book.

 So that's been the month of October for me, but hey, that's okay.  Sometimes we just have little challenges and things to work through, nothing lasts forever.  And it's okay to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, smile, and remind yourself that just for right now at least,


And speaking of filling books, did I mention I finally decided to be brave and actually signed up for NaNoWriMo?!?!?

Rustling Thoughts

Is anybody else attempting this this year?  Has anyone ever participated in NaNo before?  If yes, I'd be eternally grateful for the companionship/mutual encouragement/advice.  Please let me know!!

**Edit: My NaNoWriMo username is StoryGirl17, feel free to  add me as a buddy or give a shoutout!

So anywho, I think I'm gonna end this weirdly random post before it drags on much longer.  (Or I bore somebody to death, I don't want to do that to any of you.)  If you were beginning to feel the grips on unconscious delirium setting in, I fully apologize.  It wasn't intentional ;)

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

seasonalwonderment: Autumn 

Can I get a "YAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!"???  The best season ever is upon us yet again, what could possibly be lovelier than that, I ask you??

Nothing.  The answer is nothing.

Except for all the lovely things we get to do in the Fall, like...

 Henry Herbert La Thangue  (1859-1929) was an English painter of rural scenes. He was associated with the Newlyn School .         A Ligurian...

Those cool, crisp mornings.  Picking apples and eating them fresh.  Playful breezes that send the colorful leaves swirling down.  Hot cups of tea or coffee to warm chilled hands.  The spicy smell of drying leaves.  Make all sorts of pumpkin treats.  Curl up with a good book.  

Oh, how I love it!

Vamos a leer 

 And now that it's Fall again-my best season for writing-perhaps I'll be able to accomplish more great and wonderful things than in Summer!


In other Fall randomness, have you ever wondered what color leaf you'd be?  No?  That doesn't surprise me, but here's a quiz in case you're curious now :)  Right here.

Supposedly I would be a brown leaf because it is the color of subtlety, strength, and being down-to-earth.  Hmmm....

Brown | Buraun | Braun | Marrone | Brun | Marrón | Bruin | ブラウン | Colour | Texture | Pattern | Style | 
A pretty brown leaf :)

Before I bid you all a "goodnight," I leave you with a few songs that have been going through my head today.

 "Autumn"-Ben Rector
Figures, right?

 "Summer Again"-The Afters

"The Best Day"~Taylor Swift
Quite Fall-ish, wouldn't you agree?

Do any other songs come to mind about this lovely season?  What are your favorite things about Autumn?  Do let me know in the comments, I'd love to hear!

Happy Fall 

 p.s. Today is the first day to begin the novena to Saint Therese the Little Flower, you can find it here.
