It is the wee hours of the morning so technically I suppose it is Day 10. But, it was a long day at work (day job) and it was difficult to get all my words in. I got very little sleep the night before and the weather today was dreary and rainy, which only enhanced my feeling of being tired. It is very important to get plenty of sleep daily and especially, during NaNoWriMo. I am a night owl by nature but went to bed early after dinner tonight which is out of character for me and only last a couple of hours, which is why I am wide awake now and finishing up my word count. I did manage 2,110. I’m also refereeing the animals. Our tiny little rescue kitty which weights all of six pounds and is at least that old was sleeping in the basset hounds bed. But Lily, the basset hound while put out that her bed was occupied would not make the cat move. So I had to remove the cat from the oversized dog bed so Lily could get some sleep herself. They are best friends and but Lily will not share the bed, but she will not make the cat move either. Instead, she walks around the bed whining and making snuffling noises, until I pick up Olive and move her to another nesting place which is usually with me as she is now.
Olive is a sweetie and loves to snuggle, she often keeps the edges of my keyboard warm as I work. I leave you with this image of my feline co-author as I start Day 10’s word count.
A special prayer for a dear friend of mine having surgery on Monday and to those affected by the wildfires in California.
