I would definitely call this making progress – more or less keeping up on both NaBloPoMo and the black-and-white photo challenge! I’ll take what I can get, thank you.

It’s November. NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). Based on past history, I’m better off not making any grandiose promises about how I will somehow, miraculously, post to my blog everyday for the entire month of November. Especially considering that the last posting I made here was, oh let’s see, mid-November of last year!
Due to a number of factors – not the least of which is my typically using Facebook as a “micro-blog” to dump the rant-of-the-moment, having another blog that I am also trying to keep up on (yes I’ve been two-timing on you Blogger, get the hell over it!), and general laziness – I am not going to commit to a daily posting.
I will, however, strive to at least post more often than once a year.
Here I sit, in bed with the laptop awaiting my next keystrokes so that I might inflict my next blog entry. Though I am feeling somewhat uninspired at the moment. I do have a list of possible blog topics, but none of them are doing much for me this evening.
And now Her Royal Meowjesty hops up onto the bed as well, saunters up next to me purring loudly, and then proceeds to climb up onto my belly and starts kneading (apparently soft and round equates to “pincushion” in her mind). Thankfully my sweatshirt is taking the brunt of it – this cat is in serious need of a manicure. That is a task best left for the professionals (or at least the masochists);
I’ve once tried trimming the claws of our previous cat, Skooter, some number of years ago … once. She then made it abundantly clear to me that she likes her claws just the way they are, thank you very much. To this day, in the right light, you can still see the vestiges of the scar on my arm that resulted from that error in judgment on my part.
Anyhow, where was I? Oh right – I was trying to think of something to blog about tonight.
Perhaps something will come to me tomorrow.
Patti and I are members of the Montachusett Chorale, an area choral group who raises funds for various local charitable organizations.
This year’s holiday concert will benefit the Montachusett Interfaith Hospitality Network, whose aim is to provide transitional housing and support for homeless families with children. It will be held on Sunday, December 4, at 2pm in the Tata Auditorium of Leominster City Hall, 25 West Street, Leominster, MA. Advance tickets are $12, and $15 at the door (under 18 is free).
If you happen to be in the North-Central Massachusetts area at that time, c’mon over and enjoy an afternoon of great music and help a worthy cause!
