Checking in from NaNoWriMo head

Day 12 and I have 28 thousand brand spanking new words. New people l just met, a plot that is revealing itself bit by bit. It's a mystery and it is set right here in Labrador. More miraculous is the fact that so far none of my characters have decided to go to Paris or Ireland, Cuba or Colorado. Yay!

I'm taking a bit of time off of my job starting tomorrow -just four days and I'm going to be putting on the first of the North West River murder mystery dinners on Saturday, but I'm looking forward to really diving into this new story. And I also want to get my winter groove on. Remember that I like winter here, dust off my snowshoes, plan some wintery stuff.  So that's me checking in.
Do you like winters? Let me know how you embrace this time of year.
this is Dicky Duck, a dear friend of mine. I made him those fine snowshoes for Buddy Day a few years back.

Dicky Duck is fantastic, Jan. And I'm so glad your story is coming together for you. There's no better feeling at all, is there? I'm happy for you that you're taking time away to nurture your writing.

I don't guess I embrace this time of year moreso than any other time. It's been getting noticeably colder here in Los Angeles. At night we might be edging almost into the 40's and by day if we're lucky we might reach a chilly range in the low 70's. Jacket weather for sure.

Hey, don't laugh. I actually feel cold after a very hot summer.
