Is It Friday?

Oh my how the week has flown. I blame most of it on lack of sleep since I have been getting up for the night feedings so my head is all foggy. Yes, I could wake my husband up for the 5am feed, but if the baby talking loudly and giving a small cry does not rouse him, why poke him awake? Though it did cross my mind this morning because I was and still feel like, a zombie. Because of that, this post will have absolutely no coherence. Just rambling. Good times.

Writing: as limited as you would think. I am getting frustrated at myself, but I also try to cut myself some slack. While I have been editing my bounty hunter story, ideas on how to hone up the plot for my other book have been popping up. Changes. Changes. Yeah, nothing but changes. I have been thinking of ways to improve the personal story of the Angel of Death. I think I got it. I hope I got it. I would love e a week where I sit in a writing cabin and bang these stories out.

This next admittance is pretty amusing. I have begun watching The Vampire Diaries. Cheesy? Absolutely, but it is a fun ride at times. The acting is decent and while the story line is as far fetched as fantasy can be, there are so many holes in the story you can rinse lettuce in this colander, it still holds my interest. Of course I am so tired of hearing about vampires, thank you crap that is called Twilight, that I was hesitant to watch it for many months. But now, thanks to Netflix, I have been sucked in to the darn show.

I think I need to make this cheesy pull apart bread. Look how scrumptious!

As a reader, writer and lover of all things books, this literary food-themed dinner party is an awesome idea.

That's all folks!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

A Good Book Here, A Good Book There

Took a hiatus. Yeah, I am sure you all noticed. Been trying to get things moving along and with that I had to slack and so I slacked on the blog. Now allow me to share our little artificial tree that our son and his grandma decorated with glee.

In the last two months or so, I no longer bring my computer upstairs. Instead I have started to read at night. While this may not sound like any big deal, it is a little for me. I love to read, but due to school, home, obligations, and writing a novel, I somehow pushed reading an actual book to the side.  Like a lot of folks I got more caught up in the rabbit hole of the internet. Now, I do love getting sucked down various rabbit holes, but I also felt that I needed to actually unplug.
Allow me to sidebar a bit here.

I had been struggling with my book for a very long time. In the last 6 months or so it got worse. I had lost the true nature of the story and could no longer hear the character voice. I am not the first writer this has happened to…
