November

A small peek into what my life has held the past couple weeks, specifically the first week of November. Most of the pictures have yet another picture to view if you simply click them!

Squealing with sophisticated but ecstatic delight as I pull out the scarves, sweaters, hats, and everything that only Autumn allows.

The writing of a 50,000 word rough-draft of a book entitled Mastering the Unsaid Words for the annual event, NaNoWriMo. (Aka, write a book in a month) 1,600 words roughly per day. I'm a little behind (okayi'mabout7kbehindbutatleasti'mwritingk?), but its been amazing to have this forcing me to make time for writing. It is certainly something I needed!

Taking pictures of my lovely friend's Knight costume. It was a learning experience full of giggles. Supposedly I'm next..

Enjoying the crisp cold weather of late. The wind rips apart the trees until they stand bare, and the leaves dance across the lawn.

The reading of poetry, specifically Whitman, Edgar Allen Poe, Keats, and Emily Dickinson.

Creating a wishlist of all the oxfords, backpacks, and cute random things I want for my birthday; which happens to be coming quickly upon me.

Reading has been going up and down in the chart of my daily life. I finished A Room With a View a while back and fell in love with its strange uniqueness. The book that was suppose to follow still hasn't come in from the library, so I'm not reading that.
And because I want a lighter read since I've recently been reading deep, thick books, I haven't picked one out yet. =)
I got Uncle Tom's Cabin from the library not to long ago and should be reading that.. Oh well, we shall see. Writing is taking up so much time now and days I hardly have time to read! But. I shall make time for it.

(This is pretty much my favorite 'Anne' book..)

Climbing the mountain not far from our house was a last minute decision last Saturday morning. Gorgeous view; but perhaps I would have gone to bed earlier the night before had I known..

A somewhat blurry of the view from the top, taken by yours truly.
And last, but most certainly not least, listening to amazing music. Such as the Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, The Honey Trees, Broken Bells, Band of Horses, Death Cab for Cutie, the list goes on. Regina Spektor has recently been making my regular listening time. Firewood is officially one of my favorite songs. =)


A small peek, indeed. =)

Love you my readers,
