Happy First Day

Oh, hai. Happy first day of NaBloPoMo.

Mom’s pretty stoked, because not only is this the first day of NaBloPoMo, it’s also All Soul’s Day, and she’s editing a novel about a serial killer. She thinks the timing is pretty fortuitous. Mom says the last novel she edited was serendipitous in that way, too, because it was about 9/11, and she worked on it in the month of September.

Little C and I have been chillin’ most of the day. Mom said we needed to post something, because we promised the world we would, and that we could take another nap later, if we wanted. She could tell I was needing some inspiration, so she read me today’s NaBloPoMo writing prompt. It says, “If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?”

Paws down, I’d have to say I’d want naps and treats to last longer and nail trimming sessions to go by faster.



I asked Carl what he thought. Here’s what he had to say.

I guess Little C’s not ready to contribute just yet. I was going to ask him to be a guest blogger this month. I’m hoping he’ll have more to say when he sees how cool it is to blog every day.

Until then, here’s a peek at what we made.

Mom says these are new souls to carry on for those who have left this plane, and she’s pleased we honored the circle of life in this way.

She also wanted me to post these pix of her cats Serena and Max, who have left this plane in search of tuna buffets and fields of catnip.


Serena was a fan of pillows.

Max liked microfiber sheets.

Mom says she’s glad we gave pause and remembered those we’ve loved who have passed on today. When I asked her about today’s writing prompt, she said she thought naps should last longer, too. So I think we’re all in agreement here.

And since we’ve come full circle, mom says we can sign off now.

Until tomorrow…
