Row80 and birthday Bounty

It's been a couple weeks since I checked in.  I've been writing like crazy on Blue Steel for NaNoWriMo and happy to say as of last night at 36953 words.  Hubby and son have been most supportive in helping around the house. James has a new chore - cleaning his own bathroom.  Not a so happy byproduct (to him) of the craziness of November.  I've been bad and haven't stepped foot on the treadmill.  Too busy typing up my daily scribblings.

I scored bigtime for my birthday and received some excellent writing books.

Happy Dance!   I also have received Lee Child's "Worth Dying For" and Jasper Fforde's "One of our Thursdays is Missing."   James is campaigning for a dog so he got me the DK "The Encyclopedia of the Dog." It was fun looking through it and the pictures reminding me of all the different dogs we had and those of our old long forgotten neighbors and friends as well. Prompted some great memories and stories to share. Plus a great new cookbook - Moosewood Restaurant cooks at home. Yummy new recipes to try.  Yeah!

Haven't had a whole lot of time to visit other rowers but will make up for it in December.  Please check in on them and see how they are fairing.  Chow for now.  Back to writing!   

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home is one of my most-used cookbooks. I've been cooking from that for 15 years. Great gift.

  2. Ahahaha! Bounties of books for birthdays are the best! I'm definitely jealous (and happy birthday!). The Art of War for Writers sounds like it could be particularly interesting, but that is just me judging a book by its cover.

    Fantastic job blowing through your word counts for NaNo, Robin! And your son may not think it's very fortuitous, but I love that NaNo can inspire more responsibility in his life, right?

    Keep up the great work! We're in the homestretch now.

  3. Yay on the word count! :)

    Ok, now I have to check out that cookbook. Two of you like it. LOL

  4. Sounds like you are on fire with the writing! Grat gifts!

  5. Congrats on NaNo and woot on the books!
