I am waiting for my Chinese restaurant to open up. As well as a nail salon so I can get my toes done and get waxed. Folks, my toes are ugly, I can’t reach them to do them myself, I don’t dare ask Spawn to do them! And I have a flippin’ beard!
For some odd reason, Girly-Girl is sitting at my feet yowling the most pathetic whiny yowl. I don’t understand: she’s been fed, fresh water, cleaned litter boxes (yes 2 litter boxes) and has had treats! She’s had so much attention – she sits in Spawn’s lap or across his shoulders when he’s at the computer.
I”m struggling with the clothes issues. Yes, I’m having issues. Seems the spring catalogs came out after i spent you don’t want to know how much money on clothes earlier this month. Granted pretty much everything was on clearance… and a lot was for Spawn or my mother!
It calls them ‘silver-blush’. THEY PINK! PAINK!!!!! Bubble gum PAINK! I took them out of the shoe box and went – WTF??? What am I going to wear them wit—–oooooooooooooh they are SOOOO pretty on! And comfortable!!!
I love them, I want them, I need them. Okay, I don’t NEED them… When they first came out, there was a zipper in the back of the shoe. You can see it. Well, now the zipper is gone and people are complaining on the reviews! Something like that, I HAVE to have a zipper! I can’t buckle that itty bitty strap! You know why? Because I’m FAT!
Either way, some new, pretty springy things came out and I’m… struggling. Because I’m NOT needing anything for my closet and while I’ve made a pact to NOT buy anything for a while…
Well, you know me, no self control. But, by golly, I’m NOT going to do it! No clothes!
I’m also getting picky about books. And that will be a whole nuther subject all on it’s own. First world problems. I’m digging for stuff to talk about.
I will be cleaning up William Edward to post this weekend. YAY! Right now, we have
Yes, it’s the wonderful time of the month, we all sigh because Zee has nothing better to talk about except the books she read this month. Big whoopdedoo, right? Only, this month, we have some… well… you’ll see!
First up, we have Never. I started Never late last year, part of a challenge and I like Never so much, I decided NOT to read anymore until I got the entire series. These are quick novellas, that go back to back at a break neck speed.
Never is pretty alone in this world – a world in turmoil The militant country is taking over the rest of the world, once country at a time and one doesn’t know if the other is friend or foe. Never, simply wants to know WHO and WHAT he is – a nice way of putting it is he has a blood disorder. He’s not a vampire, but his blood is a weapon all on its own. His father disappeared when he and his brother Snow were young and his mother struggled until she died when he was a teenager. Right now, he has a map, is being chased by a rather nasty privateer because… well, he has a map that he stole from the palace.
In these installments, Never is navigating a river with his faithful sidekick and 2 people who he doesn’t know if they’re friend or foe. He meets up with that world’s version of the Green Man, who is dying because apparently, Never’s brother, Snow, came through in an unkind manner. Not to mention, he’s losing his own battle with a nasty illness purposely given to him by a dying mercenary in book 1. He’s gone up the river because there’s supposed to be a grass or flower that will cure what he has. By the time Never heals himself, the Green Man and his trees and goes on his way in search of his brother, he realizes he’s being followed again!
Never a dull moment with Never! There are 4 more books in this series.
Like many teachers, I’m reading to my kids. Video-taping and reading. Granted, I’ll never give Richard a run for his money, but I enjoy it. They are loading the vids on the school social page and the response has been pretty okay. This month I read (or started, as they are chapter books…)
A Fly went by was one of my favorite books when I was in 1st grade. Something about a peaceful, quiet day being ruined by a bunch of scared, running animals. The two Mustard books were aimed to my littles and The Vanderbeekers (30 chapters I’m doing at 2 chapter increments) for my older kids.
Okay, so 2 adult books and a handful of children’s books. Not so impressive, but I’ve been doing a lot of WRITING and editing too!
I unpacked several boxes this past month – including 2 boxes of hardbacks. It seems I have quite a few of Dick Francis’ books. oooh boy!
And now, I must go pay bills and rent. I got paid! I’m grateful I still am. i know too many people who aren’t. 😦
Have some Richard and have a great May 1st!
