Today is the last day of November, and the final day of the Yeah Write November blog challenge. No doubt you’ve noticed I’ve been posting daily. I don’t know if I could have completed this challenge if I hadn’t had the month off from work, but I did, and had the time to write daily. Today is also my first day back at work. I had BIG plans for the month, few of which came to fruition, so I’m glad to have participated in this challenge so I can have one more thing I’ve accomplished.
Things I managed to do in November:
- Recover from surgery
- Spend time with my family
- Help with Thanksgiving Dinner preparations
- Write every day
- Do some work from home (not enough)
- See friends, lots of seeing friends
- Read a few books
- Build and paint a bookshelf
- Nap, a lot
- Start organizing my HUGE library of pictures which are currently only catalogued by year
To spare you and me, I won’t list the things I failed to do, or started but bailed on.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the pieces you read, and maybe had a chance to read some of the other work at the Yeah Write Site. If not it’s not too late.
As today is Monday I also offer you a recipe for meatless Monday. It is a creamy lentil soup, and it is warm and rich with the brightness of lemon, enjoy.
Happy last day of November!
