Heading to Camp!

Camp NaNoWriMo, that is! November is the traditional National Novel Writing Month, but Camp NaNo is July (as in NOW) and everyone gets to set their own goals (words, lines, hours, whatever) and work on whatever they like! I’m finishing and editing my current WIP, so if you don’t hear much from me that’s why. I’m planning thirty total hours of writing for the month. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I can only sit upright for fifteen minutes or so without paying for it by lying in bed with ice packs covering my spine for a day or two afterwards. So my timer is my friend.

There are about a dozen fascinating people in my cabin and I’m looking forward to getting to know them! I built in a writing-free day for when my grandson arrives (due VERY soon) so I can read texts, talk on the phone, swoon over pictures, and hopefully see him on FaceTime!

Your Favorite Winter Olympics Sport – Capture the Everyday

First, a HUGE “Thank You” to Melissa Culbertson, who hosted Capture the Everyday on her early blog, Adventuroo. She kindly gave me permission to start it up again!

Yes, I’ve been on a blog-cation for many weeks. I’m finally treading water again, and I’m looking for more people who want to be positive about the little things in life! I’m still working on my badge and suggestions are welcomed!


Link up below with a post, write a comment, or just post a picture. I’ll be doing this every Monday (next week’s topic announced below). If you are linking to a blog post THANK YOU! And it would be wonderful if you would use just a simple link to my site to help spread the word.

So here’s my personal favorite Winter Olympic sport: Ice Dancing. I used to love Figure Skating, but now that everyone and their sister can do a triple axle it appears so emotionally devastating for the young competitors that I enjoy something that requires not only athletic ability and skill on the ice; but drama, emotion, and a clear connection to the musical choices.

I adored Trovill & Dean’s performance of Ravel’s Bolero, which took Gold in the 1984 Olympics.

They competed again in 1994 with an incredible revised routine with the same music, but only took home a Bronze medal. I can’t find it on YouTube, but it was brilliant.

What’s your favorite? Why? Has that always been your favorite? I want to know!!

{Next week is about your furbabies. Past, current, future, or all of the above!}
