Friday, end of the month day, and the last day of Movemeber and NaNoWriMo - it's a busy day.

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

I finished NaNoWriMo.  I completed the squirrel saga stories and now have about 90,000 words of story to whip into publishable shape.  

No title for it though.  

I've alternated between "The Wild Tavern", "Chronicles of Blue Moon Keep" (that's the name of my house), and "Romancing the Squirrel".

None of them sound right.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Supposed to be a warm weekend, temps in the high 70's and low 80's. It's currently 68 and supposed to go into the mid 70's. But even so it's not too far off normal. It will get colder closer to Christmas again most likely with a few really cold days in January and early Feb. The house is still damp/chilly feeling though.

    Yay on the Nano finish! I so love the Sarge stories. As for title though I've never been good at those. I always make Dad name things lol. And now that I've brought it up he's considering it, I'll let you know if he comes up with any suggestions.

    Tomorrow is soup night.  We invite a few friends over and I make 2 different soups, and get some crusty bread.  This year's soups are Louisiana Chili (pasta instead of beans), and Mexican Taco with chicken.  The chili is almost done, and I'll start the taco soup soon.  Our friends bring dessert, and a good time is had by all.

    Hey Noddy, I've been missing your stories.  Hint, hint.

    Have a great day.

    I am a work in progress. Still.

    this morning, we are predicted to have a general snowfall later today, then everything will moderate and maybe make it to 60 by early next week.

    I will be working on finishing the quilt top today, I need to sew a few more strips to the main piece, then start planning for filling, backing and/or borders.

    December will be here tomorrow, I should start thinking about the holidays!  But today, I can just enjoy sewing.
