Sick

So, yuck foo, I have had a fever, which started yesterday, a cough and now, the fever is gone but I am so stuffed up it is like I inhaled a box of tissues into my sinuses. I most likely got this illness at a birthday party that had many walking petri dishes, aka: children. I wish kids would cover their mouths when they cough, but a lot don't so now I am ill. My son started to cough earlier and I cringed because I do not want the little guy to get what I have. My husband seems okay, I think I am the worst in the house, which is fine. Right now I am on the couch with my insane Jack Russell snoring next to me. That's right, I have the life.

Since Google Drive and I are no longer friends, my husband was able to get my stories saved off of Drive and we will be moving them to a writing program for the iPad. He has also been looking at keyboards for the iPad as well. One example is this product called The Brydge. Yes, the price made me screech too. None of the keyboard offerings are cheap, but I hope to get the story loaded, start working with the iPad and go from there. Maybe I will not need to buy a keyboard. Maybe I can just work the tablet with ease. Maybe Hugh Jackman will give me a foot massage. Oops, delirium from the fever right there...

And while I do not have much of an appetite, for some reason, I want one of these Bourbon Apple Fried Pies from Ezra Pound Cake and I want it NOW.


Why am I looking at food when I cannot eat it? These carrot cake pancakes from Post Punk Kitchen make my head spin.

Earlier, I had the little boy chill out with me and watch some episodes of Julia Child: Cooking With Master Chefs. I have to say, that show is amazing and even if you do not eat a lot of the stuff or do any fancy cooking, it is educational and fun to watch. So many mega popular chefs did this show from the early 90's so trust me, you will get a kick out of seeing a younger and slimmer Emeril as well as a younger Lidia. The one episode I really enjoyed was with Hawaiian Cuisine chef Amy Ferguson-Ota. She made a Chicken Papaya Salad and Ono with Banana Curry. I do not eat any meat or poultry, but I would modify those recipes to enjoy them. (The banana curry uses chicken broth) Her Thai Vinaigrette looks so tasty. Check out the video here.

Must go get some rest now.

Cheers!

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.

I AM ON A MISSION

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…
