I tend to be disappointed when I fail to meet a challenge, with the emphasis on FAIL.
So instead, I like looking at challenges as options, with me free to complete as much or as little of them as I please. In this spirit, I am choosing two reading challenges for the coming year, and will just see where they take me:
Didn't I say I would be Blo-Po-ing every day this month? Yeah well. Sorry, fell off the wagon there for a few days. But I think it would be rude for me to leave you with screaming Christian Bale for much longer, so ... what to write instead?
The journaling prompt says to write about a person, so I will leave this here as a stub, and pledge to add more meat later.
I was going to write about my father*. But the TV is on, and there is the Great British Baking Show ... Masterclass, where the two judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, are doing the baking!!! And they are showing us what their secrets are. Let's see what Mary Berry does with a madeira cake.
She adds candied lemon peel! I know how to do that. I will have plenty of lemons on the tree soon.
But Black Forest gateau is on the list for today's episode as well; I will hold out for that.
Yeah, not participating in NaNoWriMo, because this is the busiest time of year at work. But I can at least blog every day, can't I? Thus, I have signed up for NaBloPoMo and will be blo-po-ing daily this month.
