Must Have Chocolate

In honor of the internet becoming a place where too much information is the norm, let me share that I have my period. And when I get my lovely monthly menses, I want chocolate or salt. Today I want chocolate.

NOW

So, I instead of my normal yummy scones, I decided to look upon something that I will not eat in one sitting. You see, if I make eight scones that means 4 for me and 4 for the hubster. I will eat all 4 in one sitting. Yes, I am gross and a glutton and I make no apologies for that. Scones and tea are a wonderful combination and I am willing to work out harder at the gym to enjoy that indulgence. The funny thing is, I no longer care about desserts after dinner. I would rather have the delicious veggies and fish and whatnot instead of a piece of cake at the end. Go figure. I prefer my sweet sin in the morning. Oh yeah.

Right now, in my oven, a delicious looking Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Quick Bread is baking. I have no buttermilk so I am using soy milk and vinegar as the buttermilk replacement. I love how vinegar thickens up the milk. Simple, freaky science I was unaware of until a few years of ago and needed a buttermilk replacement. I would like to thank all those bakers that came before and figured our substitutes. I also cannot wait to eat a piece, or two, of this bread. My tea will need reheating, but such a small price to pay for a delectable morning treat.

My son has decided that emptying his water cup out on the floor and all over himself is the new favorite past time. He has also seems to enjoys wiping it up so I sort of win as long as I get a rag to him right away.

I am now using iAWriter for my newest novel. So far so good. You really do zone out while working which is exactly what I needed, but buyer beware. There are no bells and whistles to this program. No words correcting themselves as you type along, no fancy footnote,  Scrivener type stuff. Meh, I am fine with it and sort of feel like I am writing on a typewriter since it is so simplistic. It has some features, but if you were looking to get fancy schmancy stuff this ain't it. For 99 cents, I am not complaining one bit. Isn't that nice for a change?  :)

Cheers!

  1. Sugar fixes are amazing when satisfied. I've always been partial to the vanilla Friend-Z with extra oreos and sprinkles at Friendlys, usually when I'm in a foul mood... I guess there's something for everyone!

  2. Extra Oreos makes everything better. LOL

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…
