Watching – The snow falling outside my window.  Right now it is in the 20s, and by Tuesday it will be 75.  I love Texas.

Eating – Asparagus, quinoa, and egg whites with a touch of ketchup.  I am also drinking a green machine by NAKED.

Doing – typing this while 300 Rise of an Empire plays in the background.

Dreaming – Not a big dreamer.

Planning – Possible summer vacay at the beach.  Possibly applying to school, or maybe just an art class.

Pinning – This is probably my favorite board.

Reading – I am Half – Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley.  It is a part of my 2015 reading challenge.

Listening – to James Taylor’s Greatest Hits Volume 1.  Perfect music for today.

What are you doing?

Whatever you are doing, I hope you have a great day!


Ice & Snow

Well, it wouldn’t be a normal February in Texas without a little sleet and ice.  So here I sit with my girls hoping that school is back on tomorrow so I can go to the gym and work some of this funk out.

I really wish the pizza man or Chinese restaurants were delivering today.

I would really like to cheat on my MS diet.

Instead I will look at this picture of a rustic pear tart I made a couple of weeks ago.

I would like to report that it was super good, and had everything in it I should avoid, minus the pears.

P.S.  It is supposed to snow here tonight.  I think I will have the husband pick me up Coke on the way home.

It Just Keeps Getting Better

I thought the makers of all the super hero movies outdid themselves when they made Thor into a movie.  Big, strong, lots of muscles.

Then they went and did this…..


Now they are bringing Aqua man to the big screen and there is just one thing to say.

Thank you!

Happy Friday!

My Reading List For 2015.

I have not read a book since November, and I did not even finish it.


I love to read, and I let that love go to the wayside.

Then a friend from work posted this on her Facebook page.

Ummmmm, how cool is this?  I think my brain went into overdrive just thinking about what I was going to read.

I figure this list will give me something to talk about on the blog.

My choices, if I liked them, etc.

I do not plan to go in order, because I plan to avoid the book that is greater than 500 pages for as long as I can.

I have already started researching books that were published in 1976.

I am going to start with these three books.

016e4d9191edd793bf8b69826638ef964a82701072This is a book they made into a movie.  I have already read this book, but it spoke to me.

01cbb9ad3f371ec9ae4e8ad428c34a761ae061e4a2This is my one word title book.  I have made the executive decision that a compound word would suffice.

0176bc3acd93bd81ddb8b3322ddccc913bc20425cbThis is a book of short stories.

All of these books I had at home, and thought that was a good place to start.

What are you reading?

P.S.  I am thinking about creating a newsletter.  When I was young I wanted to be the fashion editor for Vogue.  It will be like a little mini magazine.  If you are interested, please fill out the contact form below!
