As I sit here typing this, I can feel my eye swelling up. Yes, it’s those lovely sinus allergies at fault. And I swear this is Karma! From when I was a child giggling at my mom’s discomfort when her allergies made her eyes swell up.

This is getting to be painful, I can’t rub my eye, it would make it worse. So I let it keep watering, looking like I’m crying, and even that is hurting now.

I need to place a call to my doc tomorrow and ensure that the sinus meds I’m prescribed will not affect me adversely with all the other new meds I’ve been prescribed. I still have 21 days until my follow up appt from the heart attack, at the VA. OI!

I’m so ready to call it a day at the mo. Co-workers are telling me I look fine, but you know how you see yourself in a mirror and exponentially everything looks worse. That’s how I’m feeling right now.

so let’s practice those distress tolerance skills, and get back to some more writing. I had a lil freak out moment earlier. There are two places on the site that you can input for a count. One is numerical, and the other is copy/paste insert and the site verifies your word count. I prefer the second option. But I had inserted the words into the numerical box and it cleared out my whole stats. I was truly freaking out. And then… I stepped away. Refreshed the site, and oh yeah, there is that box. OI!

so back to writing now. type type type…. the muse is whispering gently in my ear.

Peace & Punctuation Punkins!

oi, just checked my blood sugar, and it’s fine-within nominal parameters. LOL
Can you tell I’m writing a scifi novel??

But oooh, I just feel yucky! Having a bit of trouble focusing. Thank goodness it’s almost officially lunch for me. I think a nice walk about will do me some good.

And since my word count has been suffering a tish, I think this event sounds great!!
I’ll be up early, staying in my jammies and writing/typing away!!

I’ve also added the cover image to my wrimo profile, and the lucky artist is: Jose Negron!! Woot!!

I have been meaning to commission a new piece for this, but so far no artists have emailed me back. So I’m re-using a pieced Jose did for me that I colored.

Anywho, I need to feel better, before I can get back to writing. My sinus headache is getting worse, maybe that’s the cause… I dunno, but ugh!!

think & type think & type think & type *You should be writing*

OI! I know what I’m doing this weekend. WRITE!
so I have a few doctor’s appts tomorrow. Okay…yeah, can’t skip them. But once I’m home, I’m writing.

I hope my fellow NaNo’s are doing well.

Peace & Punctuation

Non-Fiction Day
November 7, 2013 in United Kingdom

National Non-Fiction Day is observed on November 07, 2013. National Non-Fiction Day (NNFD) is annual celebration of children’s non-fiction in the UK. It was initiated by The Federation of Children’s Book Groups in partnership with Scholastic Children’s Books and is celebrated across the UK each year on the first Thursday in November. The day is used by libraries, schools, literacy organisations, book reviewers and parents to highlight the best information and narrative non-fiction books for children, and to show how it’s not just fiction that can be read and enjoyed for pleasure.[4] Each year there is a different theme to the day.

Return Day 2013
November 7, 2013 in Georgetown

Return Day takes place on November 07, 2013. Return Day is a biennial unique festival and ceremony held the Thursday after Election Day in Georgetown, Delaware, during which election results are announced. While television and the Internet has obviously eliminated the need for Return Day, tradition has kept the festival alive. Schools and government offices shut down for the afternoon of the Thursday after Election Day, and people from throughout the state flock to Georgetown for the festivals. The day still has a carnival atmosphere, complete with merchants, food vendors, and competitions, such as a hatchet-tossing contest, pitting the mayor of Georgetown against the mayors of other Sussex County towns. Return Day is used by many politicians as a way to announce or create buzz for their upcoming campaign. Politicians often hand out campaign stickers for the office they will seek in two years. Other people wear stickers exhibiting wishful thinking or encouraging their favorite candidate to seek higher office.

Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day
November 7, 2013 in the World

Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day is celebrated on November 7th each year.

Bittersweet chocolate is a sweetened form of dark chocolate tht does not contain milk in either liquid or dry form. Bittersweet chocolate is essentially a mixture of chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, and sometimes vanilla. Recent studies have revealed certain health benefits from the regular consumption of small quantities of bittersweet chocolate. Due to its high cocoa content, dark chocolate is a good source of certain flavonoids — namely epicatechin and gallic acid — that may be protective for the heart.

The almond is a species of tree native to the Middle East and South Asia. Almond is also the name of the edible and widely cultivated see of this tree. The fruit of the almond is not a true nut, but the drupe, consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell with the seed inside. Almonds are known to have health benefits including relief from constipation, respiratory disorders, cough, hear disorders, anemia, impotency, and diabetes. It also helps in hair care, skin care, and dental care.

With both Bittersweet Chocolate and Almonds having health benefits there is no reason why one should indulge in a little Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds on November 7th.
