The Day After The Day

Friday morning started with a beautiful sunrise. 

I love it when the day starts that way. 

It was kind of a lazy day.  I did get back to work on my NaNoWriMo project.  I didn’t do any work on it Thursday and I have to be honest, I missed it!  I missed my characters and I was happy to get back to getting all involved in their lives again.  I did an additional 1260 words for a current total of 51,336.  Now I have to figure out how to post it to the NaNo website so that I get credit for what I did!

Friday night we were at Ele’s house again.  We had more company and things were more laid, just pizza and salad.

I had two plates of salad like this.  One included a slice of pizza but that was all.  I was proud of myself for that.

I also had a piece each of Ele’s yummy gingerbread and apple cake.  Really good.

Some people got caught eating pumpkin pie with whipped cream…can you guess?!

Smiling visitors…

Carrie and Patrick

Diann and Terri.  We were so glad they could all come to visit!  It was a lovely evening.

There was also a cool sunset…

This morning another beautiful sunrise…

I was grateful for the beautiful sunrise.  I needed something cheery because when I got to Weight Watchers, I had a gain.  I was up by 3.4 pounds. ;-(  I wasn’t happy, but my eating was very much off track last week.  I will not allow that to happen this week.  We’ll be at Ele’s again tonight for left overs.  I’ll have to be on my best behavior!

Now to figure out how to post my novel to the NaNoWriMo website!!

Happy Saturday!!

  1. I love the color of the skies this time of year — and we haven’t had our “day after the day” yet — just having our Thanksgiving celebration today with our sons and their families — everybody under one roof at the same time for a change — love your stories — and good luck with your novel — 🙂

  2. Your photos make me want to get out of bed early enough to check out the sunrise! So pretty.
    It is nice to have a gathering that’s more laid back, where no one is a prisoner of the kitchen! And this week was a special week food wise, so I’m sure you’ll be more “on track” moving on.

    • Thanks, Zo, I do think I can do better this week. Last week was very off track, not just the holiday, but we had a great time. It is worth it to get up for the sunrise. I just happen to wake up, but you’re right, it’s worth getting up for!

  3. it looks just as lovely as thanksgiving! 🙂 i’m glad everyone had a nice time.

    clearly, i was not at the meeting this morning. but biology is over in about a month, and then i’ll be there every saturday! i miss it. and i would not worry about your one-pound gain. thanksgiving was right in the middle! we just need to get focused again. we can do it.

    • Hi, Ms. Kristen! We do miss you very much on Saturday. You’re doing something important to help you plan your future. I have to get myself back on track. I’m doing a lot of talking to myself to get there. Stay in touch!

  4. I hate being on good behavior around yummy food, no fun. It’s just the way it is though huh? Good job on the writing, seems you really enjoy it.

  5. Sorry to hear about the gain but at least you know why it happened and you know how ot fix it.

    I love the pictures. The skies here have been picture worthy also. I love how beautiful the sky looks.

    • Hi Dawn, thanks for stopping by. I’ve got to get myself back in the right frame of mind and I know I can do it. I love taking photos of the sunrises and sunsets. They’ve been pretty spectacular that last few days. Please come to visit again!

  6. Don’t worry, you’ll be back on track in no time!!! 🙂

    Nice work on all the writing! And those pictures are lovely!
