20. Communication (tho I'm not sure what this guy's trying to say, it's a much better mural than the depressed guy under a tree that was there before). #fmsphotoaday #art #mural
Having breakfast at the Carlton Bakery today. They've fixed it up real cute! #coffee #slocounty

What's Up Wednesday

Darn it, I keep forgetting to do this little meme hosted by Jaime and Erin until it's too late! Thankfully, this week it's still Wednesday! On with the show ...

What I'm Writing: I am still working on my NaNo novel, although I keep forgetting to post my word counts.  Last week I only got in 1167 words, which I think brings my total to 1690. Not too promising, but I still have a couple weekends left to catch up!

What I'm Reading: I'm still slogging through At the Mouth of the River of Bees. Who knew short stories could be so dang long?? Still loving it, though, as they're beautifully written stories!

What Inspires Me: I'm not terribly inspired by anything right now, which could be my NaNo problem. Currently, I'm too busy dealing with this damn, constant, everywhere-in-my-body pain and stiffness that started up around August (and simply will NOT go away despite all the Advil) to be inspired.

What Else I've Been Up To: The pain has not stopped me from working out, however (although it has changed the type and intensity of my workouts, which is disappointing), and while my trainer is on vacay this week, I've started the Couch-to-5K running plan. And, yes, it's very painful, but I'm determined to do a 5K next year (I'm hoping they'll have the same 5K at Concrete River Days next year that they did this past July!), and work up to a triathalon in a couple years.
