It’s Monday again and January’s almost over, can you believe it?  Honestly, I’m stunned.

Nothing exciting happening in this end of the world.  I am thrilled in a dorky sort of way.  My in-laws gave me an Aerogarden for Christmas.  I’ve been wanting one of these dumb things for about ten years now and never was able to get one.  It’s kind of crazy how fast my herbs are growing though.  The basil and dill are out of control.  Can’t wait until they’re big enough to harvest so I can make some herb bread.

See, I told you – dorky.

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: surf.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration.

2. Last week’s challenges:
3. Big Buddy 65%!  How are you doing?  So far, so good over here.  I’m about 2k over where I need to be and that makes me happy.

asphaltcowgrrl – 13,000
kaige68 – 2,015
cmk418 – 3,250
agdhani – 32,500
simplyn2deep – 3,640
sharpiesgal – 4,550
bizarra – 2,600

shinysylver – 5,200

Signups for January are here!  It’s a little late in the month, but signups are always welcome.    Let me know if I missed anyone or miscalculated.  There’s a reason why I’m part of a writing community and not a math community.

The Daily Count challenge is here , in case you need to check when you’re up next.

That’s about it from the desert southwest today.  How’s your week looking?  Any big or fun plans on the horizon?  Hopefully you aren’t buried under snow, but if you are, stay warm and be careful on the roads.

I'm at 3200. That's 440 words away from my target. I'm forcing myself to meet that expectation or exceed. I know I can do it because last Friday, I believe, I managed to write 800 words in one sitting.

I'm hoping that this week is much better than last week because last week WAS NOT a good week.

Sorry last week was bad. *hugs*

Good luck. I know you got this licked. :)

eh...right now it doesn't feel alright ;)
I was on such a roll yesterday and thought I just MIGHT get close to finishing the draft...
...and then the freakin' power went off at 7:30 last night and is not expected to be on at my house (and about 25 houses around me) until 3:30 today. :(
The good news...I saved the document before the computer shut down.
The bad news it didn't have time to upload it into dropbox, so I have no idea where I left off...and can't access the newest version from the office...so my hopes of coming here to continue were dashed :(
I can't even get to my excel doc (same problem) but I do know I broke 51k yesterday (had nearly an 8k day before the power went).
But the house is freezing and I hope everytyhing in the fridge and freezer isn't ruined in the meantime.
Guess the power company figures 25 houses without power isn't worth a rush to fix, no matter how cold it is.

Sorry to hear that. That really blows. I hope you don't have to restock because of your idiotic electric company.

One good thing about living on the Gulf coast is that when the electric goes out they are all over it and the wait time is minimal.

The muse is a very happy bunny. I'm over my goal for the month. Sitting currently at something over 8k.

Passed my monthly goal yesterday, so I'm in good shape.

It's cold here, not snowing (I think). That aerogarden sounds neat and it's nice that your herbs are taking off like that. There's nothing like fresh basil (especially with a little tomato and mozzarella to accompany it)

The flash challenge looks interesting this week. I'll have to give it a whirl.

Nice work!

Ugh, hopefully no more snow! It is windy as all get out here today, so it's feeling a lot colder than it is. YES! I keep telling my husband I'm going to buy a second one so I can grow tomatoes and peppers in it. Hahaha.

I couldn't even remember what I chose for the flash - but I was watching H50 while putting this together so now it makes sense. Hahaha. Happy Monday!

I am all over the knitting! I'm finishing things left and right! That blanket was massive to be done!

The words not so much.

*sigh*

That blanket is amazing, honestly. How's the cowl coming along?

Eh, but you're being creative and enjoying yourself. That's what matters.

So far for the month, I'm at 7,352 words. :)

Definitely cranking them out!

I'm at about 5900 right now, but I spent most of this week not writing so I really need to figure out how to get on with things.

Nice work! I hope that you can get it all squared away so that you can get back into the groove again.

And it's Wednesday, but I made it!

The little things are the best! I hope you get much fun and food from your aerogarden!

And I am over my count (just shy of 3000 words), so I am VERY happy. ;-)

Yay! And it's Wednesday here, too, now. LOL

Thanks - I got a lot of joy clipping the dill yesterday to put in my egg salad. Yeah, I'm a dork. :)

WOOHOO! Awesome!
