Tonight I continued my November routine of heading to Starbucks with Jacob to do some writing. I haven’t managed to find my novel writing groove, but it’s been fun trying.
Early Sunday mornings is usually Hockey Practice for our little family. Today it was Violet’s turn, early in the practice I capture this image of the kids kneeling on the
Today is remembrance day, a day to remember our fallen soldiers. So today I share a picture of a box of poppies. And ask that you take a moment
Early this morning I found myself standing in front of the old Simpsons building, now the Bay and It brought a a smile to may face to see that they had gone back to more traditional Christmas window display. I remember as a kid enjoy my trips down to see them every year. Of course now I have to plan a trip with my kids to see them. There were 4 or 5 window displays each showing their own Christmas theme complete with limited movement. Part of me wants to say these windows are up early, but then I remember the Toronto Santa Clause Parade is this Sunday.
With Jacob still recovering from getting tubes in his ears, he was forced to miss swimming. So Jacob and I hit the Second Cup near swimming to work on our novels. It was a productive day, Jacob wrote another 300 words and I got close to 1000. Sure I’m still behind, but I had a great time with my boy.
It’s November for some a time to grow a moustache, or others it’s time to write a novel. I’ve always wanted to grow a mustache for Movember but that would mean shaving off my goatee, so that’s out of the question. So instead I’ve taken on the daunting task of writing 50,000 words in 30 days. A task I’ve tried to accomplish several times over the last 10 years. I’ve only succeeded once. Sure a few years I chose to blog every day instead of write a novel and that I have done successfully several times, but the novel has eluded me. So this year I’m back to noveling.
Tonight it was just Jacob and I for dinner and after a second day of helping family move, I didn’t feel like cooking anything. So I asked Jacob where he wanted to go for dinner, he chose Subway Subs. I captured dinner while he in joyed his Cold Cut Combo with Bacon. It was nice sitting with just Jacob, talking about different things. He does seem excited about his novel, I think I’ll have to try to schedule another Starbucks trip for the 2 of us.
