More Miscellanea

A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. ~William Styron, interview, Writers at Work, 1958

Hey... I'm giving away an autographed copy of "One Love for Liv" today for Humor Month. Want it? Then go enter!!

Speaking of book, I finished "Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading" last night. Was disappointed to find there were NO ZOMBIES (C~ you lie like a dog ), and was VERY glad I never have to go to high school again. By the time I hit the middle of the book, I could NOT put the thing down. Things were such a mess and I knew I wouldn't be able to stop thinking about it if I didn't finish it. Of course, now I want to know what happens NEXT year to Moni and Bethany (and the very hot Jack, of course). *sigh* Darcy, Charity... well done, you.

It's raining. I know we need it (it's been a DRY "mud season"), but I really do prefer sunshine. Wish there was a way it would rain every night and clear up by dawn -- no need for sprinklers, never a rained out barbecue, no droughts. Yep. I think that is a stellar idea!

Started my two days of dog food yesterday. I find it's far easier to spread things out. Cooked up 20 lbs of chicken quarters in my canning kettle. They are in my second refrigerator now (aka the garage -- man, I miss having that convenience in the summer) while the broth cools and the fat rises to the top and hardens so I can toss it. Today, I'll cook veggies in the defatted broth this a.m., let cool, smash and mix together. It really is getting easier to do every time.

Haven't been able to sleep well the past few nights. My hips hurt... reminds me of how they ached when I was preggo. No. I'm not pregnant. I think it's just age, lol. Still, it's a drag. I need my sleep.

Going to write today. Seriously. AM. GOING. TO. WRITE. I got mostly caught up on my "must do" list yesterday. I only have a few things that I MUST DO today. Then, I AM GOING TO WRITE.

FYI: Brandy and Groovy -- I buy my curriculum early because it is ON SALE. I'm all about the cheap. I got free shipping AND saved $125 on the package because I bought it at a showing. Yay me. It actually arrived yesterday and DD wanted to read all of the books for Language Arts. Um, no. LOL...

C~ you lie like a dogOr rug. Take your pick.

Oh, so glad you enjoyed it. It's nice to hear you couldn't put it down. So, yeah, no zombies, but not everything can have zombies.

Keri Mikulski said...

Love the soap opera name. :)

Brandy said...

I'm Tiffany Simone Raines, the Third. I am SO not a Tiffany. *G* And by "the fourth" in your name, maybe they mean the fourth actress to play that character? *G*

Ah, I get it on the sale on curriculum. Ours does that, if we buy at a convention, however the closest one to us was Virginia. *g*

I hope you've had a pleasant day!
