SUNDAY POTPOURRI — NOV. 21

THE TIKI QUEST

The tiki image displayed here is a story for another day.  It was all about a quest, a journey up and down California for tiki memorabilia.  Potpourri, if you will.

But meanwhile, today I’ll be sharing bits and pieces of my Sunday.

As I gaze through the slats in the blinds of my office, the drizzling, gray day reminds me of the months that lie ahead.  While winter has not yet arrived, its precursor is certainly here.  Today is like a bleak terrain that lies somewhere between autumn and winter; a day that discourages outdoor activities, but invites the “curl up and read” moments, or even time spent on computers creating blog posts or WIPs.

First, of course, there was my Sunday Salon post, followed by visits to other blogs.  This is my regular morning ritual.  Then came the Sunday newspapers, but nothing really grabbed my attention.

Next, I worked off and on with my NaNoWriMo project, and ended today’s session with 51,374 words—and since the goal was 50,000 words by November 30, this means that this task (or challenge) is now complete.

But I will continue plugging away, as I am not yet finished in my own mind.  I have loose ends to tie up and characters to deal with….

After reaching that point, though, and updating my profile, I sat down to begin reading this week’s books.  By Nightfall is one that I’ve been looking forward to, and I’ve made a small dent in it.

Yesterday brought something in the mailbox—not a book, but a DVD—so I was eager to watch it.

The Kids Are All Right, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo, is a comedy, it’s a drama, and it delves into and explores all kinds of modern family issues.

I saw it in the theater awhile back, and now here it is on DVD already.  I watched it last night, in my office (my grandson was here and in the living room), so now I want to watch it again on my big screen TV.

What do you like to do on a rainy Sunday?
