NaBloPoMo 2016



It's November, which means it's time for NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) — little sister to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). (A very little sister.) I've participated, with varying success (but mostly success!) since 2009, and I don't see any reason for stopping the insanity now. 2016 has been a crazy year, so it seems only natural!

I plan to post some about my knitting, about menu planning and cooking, about the weather, the sky, and probably a tiny little unavoidable bit about politics — I have plans! No doubt there'll be a little football, some sewing, the kids… hopefully, something for everyone.

For now, though…


This is a beautiful tree that catches my eye many times a day right now through the window at work — in the most non-photogenic setting. You know how I fix that? PRISMA! Thank you to Blue Sky and Lovely Clouds for their contribution.


And, because I can't help myself… hostas & leaves outside the garage at home. Hostas… how did I ever *not* love them. It is full-on autumn, peeps!

Let the madness begin!! I hope you'll join me… by reading, at least, and letting me know if something rings your bell.

  1. I cut my hostas back last weekend but seeing yours pop almost makes me wish I hadn’t. Great start to NaBloPoMo; only 29 more posts to go!

  2. I love your BIG hosta leaves. Mine were gloriously golden and I should have snapped a photo. I also had to cut mine back. I am so excited about NaBloPoMo and all the reading I’ll be able to do!

  3. NaBloPoMo is like a little early holiday present. Regular posts from a few of my favorites. Yippee! My the muse be with you.

  4. Will be reading along, and have officially posted/joined NaBloPOMo for my annual attempt. You always inspire me…maybe I’ll succeed this year and break the trend?
    PS Hostas. Also finding I like them a lot. I hope its not an Old Lady thing. Do you think it might be?

  5. Oh, I’m here, Vicki! Already behind in my reading (after just one day!) — but I’m here! Looking forward to the month ahead. (And YES! Hostas!)

  6. I’ll be following/reading…always enjoy your posts. Your shawl is beautiful. Thanks for the link – have already printed out the pattern (like I really need one more pattern…..).
