#ThatAwesomeMomentWhen books you forgot were on order are surprise delivered to the house!!!! I know what I'm reading tonight!!!This update was automatically posted from Google+ courtesy of the Google+ Importer plugin!
It was hard work, but I have officially entered all of my chosen challenges and made my challenge page look nice. :-p Now to get all the rules down nice and simple in a portable format for my personal use for when I'm out and about and can't remember which books qualify for which challenges! :-D
Also, I finally have decided on a #NewYearsResolution for 2013. I shall #Review every #Book I read on my website like a good girl. Even if it's just a quick "loved this one" with the book description and cover image. I shall also make a point to rate every book I read (and go back to rate the ones from 2012 that I somehow missed).
Loved this one. :-D Dr. Brewer is doing a little plant-testing in his basement. Nothing to worry about. Harmless, he says. But Margaret and Casey Brewer are worried about their father. Especially when…This update was automatically posted from Google+ courtesy of the Google+ Importer plugin!
So pictures of all the lovely #Ice and #Frost on the ground and my car this morning (I'm loving this #Weather!) and one picture of the two boxes and one bag of #Books I brought home from #Scholastic today. :-D Some of these will be #ChristmasPresents, so no pictures of them open until they're all sorted out.
For now, though, it's time to take a bath and read one of my new books. :-D
By the way, for those of you on #Goodreads , feel free to look me up. Goodreads doesn't offer auto-post to G+, yet, but I'm sure it will soon. Add me and you can see what new books I've been getting and then immediately #Reading (of course this doesn't include the books that I've gotten and not read yet). =^_^= http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4896879This update was automatically posted from Google+ courtesy of the Google+ Importer plugin!
Outside my window… is a world that spins while I hide away in my library. There are biting bugs, smelly people, and loud cars.
I am thinking… that I’m insanely lucky to have a library all to myself (and my kitties) to read, play, and enjoy my time.
I am thankful… for my husband. He puts up with me, loves me, and lets me have my own time in my library with minimal interference. ^_^
In the kitchen… are a few dirty dishes from the dinner I “cooked” and the deer sausage that Jaime made for himself because the Chicken Fried Rice apparently wasn’t filling enough.
I am wearing… a purple t-shirt. I don’t like clothes, so I already took my pants off. o_O
I am creating… a few new habits, I hope. Mainly, posting more often and with more book reviews!
I am going… to climb into the tub when I’m finished with this post. ^_^ I love baths! Especially with my nook. :-D
I am wondering… what it would take to get my life fully organized and on a somewhat decent schedule…
I am reading… the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. I’m currently on “Nerilka’s Story” – the 8th published book.
I am hoping… that one day I’ll be able to get some better shelves for my book-babies.
I am looking forward to… work tomorrow. Weird, I know, but I go in super early at 6a, I get off at 1p, and then I get to hang out with my niece and sister. I think they’re doing nails?
I am learning… that sooner or later, if I make a plan and stick to it, I’ll be able to pay off all my bills!
Around the house… my kitty-babies are dirtying up the clean floors by shedding. I’m sorry, Jaime, I told you we needed to give them haircuts and baths!
I am pondering… the meaning of my own life, my desire for children, and my enjoyment with my life while Jaime and I are kid-free.
A favorite quote for today…
“Step by step
Moment by moment
We live through
― Anne McCaffrey, “Dragon Harper”
One of my favorite things… reading every second I can!
A few plans for the rest of the week…
- write a few book reviews
- spend some time with my niece
- cook at least once, even if it’s only Hamburger Helper
reminder: take ground meat out of the freezer
- finish transferring my music library from iTunes to Songbird 1.9.3
Thanks OldApps.com for the installation file!
- watch more Star Trek episodes
- read another chapter of “Sky the Unwanted Kitten” with Anna
A peek into my day… Leeroy often spends most of his time extremely close to me when I’m home. I like to joke that he has a two-foot rule; I’m not allowed more than two feet from him at any given time. It’s really sweet, but I especially love when he decides to get cuddly… This picture was taken after he had been sleeping on my shoulder for a little less than an hour. He was still there 25 minutes later when Jaime came in and started messing with him. About five minutes after Jaime left, Leeroy hopped down and went to sleep on his chair – conveniently located on the side of my desk less than two feet from his mommy. :-)
This past week I managed to post wrap-ups for all of my 2011 reading challenges as well as set up the basics of a challenge for me to host and joined two other challenges for 2012. I feel pretty productive, so I’m going to reshare those posts! :-p
Also, this is probably going to be a regular thing for when I’ve been productive. I’m hoping that seeing this all in one place each week or so will help me continue to be productive. :-)
Okay, I realize that a few of those wrap-ups were posted earlier in the year, but I still had to catalog them all this past week for the 2011 reading challenges page. Also, didn’t WordPress use to offer a gallery feature for when you posted a bunch of images? If they do, I can’t find it anymore. o_O
Soooo, sorry for the huge line of images, but I’m not changing it now. ^_^
Also, coming up this week, maybe nothing! Haha. This week I’m going to try to focus on reading, tweaking the site’s appearance a little more. I may be changing themes, but I haven’t found one I like more than suffusion, so who knows. There are a few things I’ve been trying to do with the theme since I first installed it that I’m going to try to get working, so if you see the maintenance screen again (like you would have seen all night since I forgot to take it down – my bad!), that’s what I’m doing. Sorry for any inconvenience.
