Welcome to Friday

Body Pump. 8 o'clock this morning. We did some serious shoulder work. Because of this I can barely lift my arms over my head due to the fatigue my deltoids, triceps, biceps and pectorals feel. Aces. That aside, I do love the class and wished it was offered more often.

I went and got a haircut and tomorrow I get the eyebrows waxed.  Whoo hoo!

I started to watch the British sci-fi/demented series Black Mirror. "The National Anthem" is episode one and after I watched it I wanted to vomit and shower. This series is not for the fainthearted nor is it for someone who dislikes science fiction and may fear technology. This series is everything dark and horrible you like to imagine about technology brought to life.

My book is nearly finished. Yes, hell has frozen. Well, it is about 6 chapters away and we all know that could take another 6 months or even a year considering how limited my writing time can be. No matter. I have decided that advice from a friend seems a sound way to go. Send out queries and give it 120 days. If I hear nothing, self publish. Hire an editor, a proofreader and probably someone to design the cover. This probably means I need to rejoin social media sites as I will need to promote the book. I am not thrilled about that aspect because of trolls and whatnot, but the desire to get the book into many hands will have to override that bull.

Been keeping a list of what is to get planted where outside and am excited to get a move on.

In case you don't have kids, three is an amazing and very strenuous age. Our son has a lot of autonomy, but man, there are times you would think he never was given freedom. Other times he wants to be attached to my hip or his daddy's. God Bless. I appreciate him enjoying our company and I also appreciate that he goes to preschool two days a week.

Have a fabulous weekend!

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…

Bad Writing Abounds In Twilight Novels

I have never had the desire to read the "Twilight" series. What I knew about them sounded like a bad young adult novel and I could not be bothered. Besides, I read Anne Rice's Vampire Series years ago, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but that was enough vampire lore for me.I have a very good friend that loves "Twilight". One day I saw her book on the table, picked it up, read one page, threw the book down and said to my husband, "This is written like absolute crap!" And yet the books are best selling series and the author makes millions. Bless her heart. I hate dumbed down books and I really hate books written as if the author never took an English class. Oddly enough, Ms. Meyer was an English major, go figure. From what I have read in regards to the Twilight books and heard during conversations about the beloved series, I know that I do not like her main characters. They sound like people that would fall under Too Stupid Too Live for me. A vapid, needs to …
