2016: The Good, the Bad, and the “What? Why? UGH.”

I’m still alive! I think… It’s been a year. It’s been a DECEMBER. And in some ways I’m floundering, both creatively and non-creatively, but I’m taking steps to rebuild my foundation. Please forgive me if I’m a bit absent on the blog for a while.

In the meantime, here’s our end-of-year round up from the Rabid Rainbow Ferret Society…

Here we are. We made it. December 31st. That shiny midnight that heralds the dawn of a new year is so close I’m pretty sure I can reach out and touch it, but don’t tell 2016 I said that…

NaNoWriMo 2016 Winner

Another NaNoWriMo Win in the Books! (Pun totally intended.)

Life took over this year, but I managed to write most days anyway. Winnie has had her back right leg amputated, and is doing great now. The kitten has been named Tiberius. (As in James Tiberius Kirk.) Oh, and I won a Goodreads giveaway for a book that I really wanted but didn’t know how to fit in the budget! Hopefully it will get here soon…

And I finished NaNo last night about 11 pm, Oklahoma time. Just one more NaNo event to get through (the Thank Goodness It’s Over party on Saturday) and then I can start focusing on Christmas.

Because I failed dismally at blogging in November, here’s all the NaNo updates from the Ferret blog:

And now, because Tradition…


How has your November been?

Please ignore my filthy kitchen tile.

The Mess That Is October – The Cat Edition. Literally. Cats.

Before I get into the craziness that has been October (it’s literally impossible for it to get much crazier at this point), I have a few things to mention:

First – I’m running a fundraiser for a friend who has had some really hard times the past year. You can read her story, and donate (or share, if you are unable to donate) at YouCaring.

Second – Sign up for my newsletter. 😀

Third – The Intro to Permaculture online class by Oregon State University starts tomorrow! It’s free. And all virtual. You can still enroll. 🙂 And, just a reminder, my review of that is here.

Really, it all started on the last day of September… when I found the dog had pinned down a feral kitten in the backyard. Read More »
