Setting the stage
Tomorrow, November 1st, marks the start of NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month, the baby sister of NaNoWriMo/National Novel Writing Month). I have been a NaBloPoMo participant in the past (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011), successful in daily posting for all but one or two of those days, and I shall give it another go for 2012!
I think I'll have enough to talk about... or to show. There's at least another post or two about food/diet that I'd like to share, there's some upcoming travel to talk about, there's a birthday and an election (all on the same day!), the Thanksgiving holiday, some knitting and dyeing, and the usual various general everyday run-of-the-mill blather...
Here's to the next 30 days!
I snapped this pic of last night's sky while waiting for the light to change. I was on my way to the first of a two-night community ed class called "Vintage Collage." I have always loved collage, and timing was perfect to take it with a long-time friend; our birthdays are a week apart and we're viewing this as a gift to each other as well as to ourselves.
Snip, snip! The paper is flying and creative juices are flowing!
And I felt my first twinge of carpal tunnel-type discomfort in the middle of the night after an evening spent doing fine cutting -- it's been AGES since I've felt that! It hasn't been bothersome at all today, though, so that's good.
And the next day...
And the next day...
A month of Vicki!! I'll be reading every word. I don't think I'm brave enough to jump in and join you.

I love this month - I get to read updates from so many people...I know I could never attempt that, given that I don't even have the energy to write a blog at all...(I'm so glad that you do!)

Oh, this makes me feel motivated to give it a go, too. I'll at the very least be cheering you on!

Good for you. I did it for the last 2 years but I'm skipping it this year. I'm a NaBloPoMo drop out. ha!

looking forward to daily reads. (and hope that carpal tunnel stays away - ugh...)

Love to have a month of you posting as long as it doesn't make the carpel tunnel goblins try to come out and play. You might try wearing braces at night to sleep only. I find that it helps keep my flare ups under control.
