NaNoWriMo, the Dunes, and other updates...

November has been a very busy month for all of us!  I decided that this year I would successfully complete the NaNoWriMo challenge and I did!  50,000 words completed!  Woot!
 It wasn't easy.  I traveled for a week to work at Grand Teton National Park, which put me behind on my writing.
So very cold...
Plus, tried to enjoy the cooler weather and get some riding in...
Dusty boots=A happy girl!
 Plus, we needed to make sure the pups had some adventures!  Like going to the dunes for the first time...
I iz going on adventure!
Me too!
Harlow made a new friend...
This is Cinch - he is a McNabb.  No puppies were damaged in the making of this picture...
...and worked on her tan...
Hey!  Where my sun go?
Monty worked on begging for treats...
I iz starving and weak.  Any crumbs for me?
Aaron got to play in the sand...
All smiles!
...and so did I!
Those are other rails at the bottom - it was a long way down!
The pups were safe and sound back at camp - away from all the noise and cars.

I'm starting to catch up on blogs now and cleaning the house, but I did my usual mistake and marked all of them as read in Feedly...  sigh...  It is too easy to do that! 


  1. looks like you & the dogs had a great time!
    Wow,50,000 words,that is an accomplishment!Have a great Sunday!phyllis

  4. that was a lot of words for sure. Looks like you had a busy month.

  10. Harlow, that picture of you with your new friend is further proof that you and Abby are sisters from different mothers! Mom says congrats on NaNoWriMo - she keeps 'meaning' to try it, but then doesn't. Maybe next year.... And maybe if she writes about two fabulous Goldendoodles... :-)

  11. That is quite an accomplishment with all those words - congrats. And what a fun time for all!!! Those dunes look like a lot of fun.

    Mom feels your pain, she has done the same thing many times. We really miss Google Reader.

  13. Good to see you all having fun...those dunes are wonderful and HUGE :)

  14. Looks like a wonderful adventure to us :) glad you had good times!

  15. What an adventure! Life is rough, isn't it?

    I agree - it is far too easy to do that in Feedly. But, it does give you a clean slate to start over (maybe I should do that :)

  16. We use Feedly and have done some "oops", too, by marking everything as read.
    Driving the dunes looks like a BLAST!!! So does playing with Harlow!
    Play bows,

  17. You have been sooo busy! I guess you now have a novel to publish and inquiring minds would like to have it read to them heheh! Harlow - moi, Avalon, would like to meet your fierce-faced friend! And Sammie just wants to run in the sand dunes! (Mom thinks your buggy looks awesome!)
    Hugs xoxoxo
