4th week of November’s Art Every Day and also in NaBloPoMo

November 22nd

Today is day #22 of AEDM and NaBloPoMo aaaand for the first in months I am going to join RoryBore in her Coffee Chat. Fitting, because it is (already!) 7 am and I am sipping my freshly brewed coffee.

Here’s Leslie’s prompt for today: You can take these November chats to update about your personal task for the month, or;   share a Currently post:  what you’re reading, listening, watching, eating, wearing, etc. Today: Update your challenge.  Or in honour of American Thanksgiving, tell us what you’re thankful for right now.

So, you all know by now that the challenge I set myself this month is to create art every day and to post an article each day, too. Newsflash: I am doing good on the posting daily, at least so far. I did come close to not posting a couple of times, but I made it.

As for the creating art daily – that is not going all that well. There are several reasons and the biggest one is the omnipresent problem most of us are facing. Time. Between fulltime work and household chores, there is not a lot of it left on a daily basis.

I am thankful *wink* 2nd part of Leslie’s prompt *wink* and lucky though that David is helping quite a bit at home these days, and thus freeing up time for me to write, create and work out. Yes, let’s not forget that one. Regularly working out can be a challenge, too. I am not even trying to stick to a daily regimen, but three to four times a week – that’s more like me.

There are a lot of other things I am grateful for starting with the obvious, having a warm house and food, health (mostly), a job and medical insurance (at least for now, the issue has still not been solved…), and also family and friends, near and far, real and virtual.

I am thankful that I can sit here this morning and type this blogpost to connect with other people.

And before I get all sappy, I’ll better wrap this up and start thinking about getting to work so I will keep my job and all the other things I mentioned, too.

Have a wonderful Tuesday. It has been great chatting with you over a cup of coffee this morning 🙂


p.s. through AEDM I have connected with Elizabeth & Bleubeard of Altered Book Lover and they are hosting a wonderful Tuesday linkup all around ‘something drinkable’ – fun!
