What's Up Wednesday


What I've been reading: Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. I seriously love this book. It is intelligent and thought provoking. I've been leaning more towards the non-fiction lately, I really don't know why. I tend to go in phases like that. I'm sure eventually my mind will feel like it wants to explode with all this new information and I'll have to read something strictly for pleasure.

What I've been writing: I'm on the last week of NaNo, so I'm working like crazy on The Guardian, which is Steven's version of The Newstead Project. I'll probably get to 50,000 by midnight on Friday, but since none of my books are actually 50,000 words long, I'll probably be working just as hard on it on Saturday.

What's inspiring me right now: Thankfulness. I'm really in that mindset right now. Even with the closing of my unit and all the stress that goes along with it, I'm feeling really blessed right now.

What else I've been up to: I'm working on Thanksgiving, so I was able to opt out of turkey making duty, which has me just bringing a pie and the infamous green been casserole to my parent's house. The part of the world I live in is covered in snow right now, the nice thick kind, so my kids are getting ready to go outside to build a snowman, and I think I might join them.

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?
