The day woke me. This morning, I relaxed outside on this deck bundled up in my pink comforter and watched the sun rise. Then, I made a hot mug of coffee, went back to my spot, and waited for the day to begin. There's something different about the air up here on the mountain. There … Continue reading The Mountain Breeze
Today little sister, Pip, Chip, and Pup, go on an adventure. They're moving back to the big city and leaving us in the dust. I'm glad that little sister is spreading her wings and that she's always going to have company, but man am I going to miss them. So, today we moved (mostly) everything … Continue reading Move out day.
Last night, there was a decent amount of rain, this morning, the yard smelled like dirt and dead leaves and the air had a good amount of moisture to it. And the pup, well, he didn't want to come back inside for breakfast.With the fall and the rain bringing out the leaves and the new … Continue reading Mud Puddles
This month is for finishing books that I have started and stopped. So, I'm not going to push myself to read a whole bunch this month. Without further ado, and in no particular order, here's my very small November TBR. GoodReads | BookShop Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish An English Bride in Scotland by … Continue reading November TBR
★★★★ I think that I've decided to avoid 2020 by re-reading a series that I absolutely adored when I had first read the series, and reread it (around 2011). I think, if I'm remembering correctly, I finished this series in my Shelfari days (before GoodReads) and then marked my first re-read on GoodReads. Honestly, I'm … Continue reading Wicca: Sweep 1-3 |Cate Tiernan| Book Talk
Upkeep on the house has been interesting lately. With younger sister moving back in and chaos still ensuing from clearing everything out of bedrooms and the dining room and living room. And, eventually I've found that taking some quiet time to care for the house plants and watch the bird feeder grounds me. Which, is … Continue reading Another Grounding.
September began, as it should have, with decorations. I put up some ceramic pumpkins and finally installed some shelves in my bedroom - which I think I'm going to be using as a TBR location. And, I fell back in love with reading. This month, I finished a respectable 7 books, and I couldn't be … Continue reading September 2020 Wrap Up
I'm not sure how young I should go with this one. My middle and high school years held a ton of paranormal romance. Love triangle galore. Vampires and werewolves and witches and zombies had my heart. After that, it was the dystopian genre that held my attention for about a minute and a half and … Continue reading books for my younger self
I did not finish a single book in August. But, my house is more or less back together. We have added a few new pets to the household. I've watched a few new shows and gone back to some old, faithful ones. This month - September, I constantly need a reminder - I want to … Continue reading September 2020 Want to Read
Not gonna lie, y'all, this list is going to be super short. I don't think I typically read books with heavy food mentions in them, and if I have I sure can't remember any. To state the obvious, there are a few cook books that I am interested in making some things from but just … Continue reading books that make me hungry
