Holiday Blues


I've been trying to get into the holiday spirit by reading holiday romances and listening to holiday music (mostly from Glee). I'm not sure if it's really working yet but I'll keep trying. I think I'm going to have to bake some cookies this week. That might help.

On the Tree

Our holiday tree is a small three foot fake tree that sits on top of a table. The decorations are mostly handmade. Some I made. Some family members made and some I got in a craft swap several years ago. Here are some pics from the tree...

The first one is from a swap, the second is from family and the third is one that I made a few years ago. Sometimes I miss having the room for a big tree but mostly I'm just grateful for what we have.

Scenes From My Desk

my desk isn't a permanent thing. I have to set it up in the living room in front of the couch daily if I want to use it. It isn't ideal but it is better than not having one at all. Of course my daughter likes to leave her things on it as well and the cat thinks it is hers. So I share. Here are a few shots of the space from last night... invader kitty stuff kindle love

Obviously I haven't been using this blog since this summer. I kind of just dropped out of everything for a while really. I flaked out of the last of the online classes I was taking. I'm not sure what happened really. Maybe what always happens. I just lost interest. I'm going to be making an attempt to revive this place though. I've been taking daily photos again though I haven't been doing much of any art beyond that.

I have been writing though. I did NaNoWriMo this year and finished! Well I reached 50,000 words anyway. I didn't actually finish my novel I think I'm only about half way done. Maybe two thirds. I'm actually trying to focus on writing at this point in time. It was always my first love. I'm going to keep up with the photography too though. I love that and it doesn't have to take a lot of time out of my day. I'm hoping to get back into some art stuff with the new year but I'm not going to push it. I want to focus on writing. It's too easy for me to get derailed and I don't want to do that this time.
