Writing all month long
Really takes a lot of time
Involving lots of hair pulling

Well, it’s the second to last day of NaNoWriMo and I am glad even though I’ve enjoyed writing on one project for most of the month.

Been a while since I tried this form for poetry even if all I could think about was working on the pig’s shelter today.
There are many things that I can be grateful for today of all days.
I can be grateful for the snow that blitzed us last night (and stuck around to freeze my nephew’s fingers off when doing animal waters this morning).

I can even be grateful for the wood that we have to keep the living room warm from the wood stove.
Mostly I’m grateful for new friends made this week, old friends that I got to hang around with before today (they went to Oregon to visit family for a week), and for how snuggle-y our animals are whenever it’s snowy and perfect to curl up with a book and a cat or dog.
Hope that y’all are also having a great day, whether it’s Thanksgiving for you or not.
Be sure to check out the original Thankful Thursday!

With cookies or popcorn
But you can’t
Because you have to be
