Just Dropping Off the WWC

It was another nice Fall weekend here in lovely east Nebraska. So lovely that I am soooo busy with all the things that I should be doing but aren't because I'm too busy enjoying myself, which I think is the best excuse of all.

So, I'm dropping off my WWC pictures, the WWC brought to you by the wonderful Tink, by the way. Then, I'm off to slay some dragons, solve the world hunger problem and create a national medical care program that actually works. Because if I can get all my personal stuff done, I might as well tackle the easy stuff.

The words this week are Old and Blue, plus a Halloween bonus. And here we go!

Old. I love this old water pump at a farm we visited. It was the old-way they got their water.

Blue. When we dog-sat Phoebe for our friends, she was blue and spent the first few hours of their departure waiting for them to return.

Then we gave her a treat, and she was OK.

Bonus pic--Halloween. This is the perfect Halloween tree. Al told me what it was, but I don't remember. Yes, those are giant thorns on that tree!

I may not be around a whole lot in the next few weeks while I prepare for Thanksgiving, write my 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo, pop a lot of aspirin as I get used to going to the gym again, and get in some holiday baking. I'll be checking in on your blogs, but I may not comment as often or post on my own very often. But it's not that I'm not thinking about all of you. (Was that correct or did I just negate a sincere statement with a double-negative?)

And speaking of NaNoWriMo, word count so far: 8,000 words.

You are so full of energy; its scary; what if you explode! I hope you accomplish all of your goals. Me, I plan on just keep on puttering along and I will get there!

I think you're my only visitor from Omaha, so consider yourself absolved if you don't comment.

Great going on the NaNoWriMo! Good luck once again

The giant thorns looks spooky :)

Lisa said...

Go, writing Kelly, go! Can't wait to read some of those thousands of words! :)

Kell said...

Oh, I don't know. So many thousands of those words are dreck--but maybe I'll put something up.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Very cool photos!

That poor dog looks like she is totally depressed there.

The water pump is awesome.

Great job on the novel writing!

Lena said...

Those thorns look as sharp as my mother-in-laws tongue!! Well maybe not that

There's so many bloggers here inspiring me via writing, that I'm staring again after New Year. Good Luck in your ventures, Kell.

Great pics! I think that is called an Osage Orange tree, they have rotton looking orange like things fall from them too. But they don't smell so nice.

Good luck with NaNoWriMo

I've always loved those old water pumps... and wells. The dog is looking so blue I feel sorry for her.

And those thorns on the trees are just... well... WOW!

Freakazojd said...

Wow, good continued luck on the NaNoWriMo - I can't imagine committing to that much right now, haha! :)
I love your pics - the one of the dog is so cute! Isn't it amazing how treats can make things so much better? Haha!

That horned tree is wicked looking! It's like something out of a fairy tale. I love the pic of the blue dog too. That's what I imagine my pups do when Hoop and I leave for work. :)

Holy crap is that a wicked tree.
