Time flies...when you aren't doing much of anything at all!


I haven't been  around much any this last little while year or so but I thought it might be a good idea to come back. What with all the spare time I have I should be able to pop out a daily weekly occasional post. I took a 2 year hiatus from scrapbooking and recently got my creative mojo back so there is hope that the literary muse will join me on the blog. Literary and blog in the same sentence - sacrilege perhaps?

Maybe I'll help myself by making a list of possible blog topics...

Pinterest Projects - hmmm, are you actually supposed to make the projects you pin?

How to fix a dead KOBO in 176,356 e-mails with customer service - forgot, that didn't work.

The joys of being married to a hunter - this one has potential, in a very sarcastic way.

Probably best if I just wait to post when I have something interesting to share...

See you next year??????

A confessional, of sorts.

Forgive me Blogger, for I have sinned.

It has been 357 days since my last confession  blog entry. (assuming my math is correct - and that is always questionable.)

Lots going on in my world this past year - a new job, a new province, a couple of temporary homes, major home renos on a soon to be new home... Not intentionally trying to avoid my loyal following of six readers but things just seemed to get in the way. Planning on catching up with you all soon

And isn't it ironic...dontcha think?

Alanis Morisette knows what she's talking about.

I find it fairly ironic that I am currently reading this series because my 10 year old would like to read it when I was already reading Harold Robbins' and Sidney Sheldon's smut filled violence at the same age.

So far I've made it through Twighlight and New Moon and haven't been clutching my pearls in fear of what my daughter may glean from the pages. Seems pretty innocent to me so far (says the Harold Robins reading 10 year old.) Neither have I been enthralled with the story line or writing style. I asked Allie if she was really liking the books and she gave a sort "of ho-hum , they're all right" answer. Why then, am I patiently waiting to get my hands on the next book?!?! I guess I got sucked in and now NEED to know what happens to Bella, Edward and Jacob. I'm not on Team Edward or Team Jacob so I have no horse (or werewolf, as the case may be) in this race. I also heard the books get a little more risque as the series progresses so maybe I'm anxiously awaiting this but something tells me Stephenie Meyer probably didn't take notes from Robbins and Sheldon.
