blog list April Love my Nook!

Question? What’s your favorite gadget?

2012

The apps I have downloaded on my phone. Love them. Keep track of things, organize, and budget. Awesome! I use these more than I call or text on my phone.

2013

I guess I was gadget-out! ;(

2014

My favorite would be my NOOK! I love it! I love it for all the apps. I love it for reading new author books that I would not have been able to read otherwise. 🙂

Question? What makes you cynical?

2012

Fake friends. Especially when they are only out for themselves. Makes me want to disappear.

2013

I guess nothing made me cynical, amazing.

2014

One dictionary says, distrustful of human nature, mocking. Hmmm. I don’t like when someone you thought cared about you ends up not making an effort to be there when you need them. Trust disappears.

Question? The best hour of today was _____. Why?

2012

Eating pizza with my boys. Nice to eat together. Plus, Shay will be going to college soon and will not be eating with us too much except visits.

2013

I guess I did not have a best hour today. Maybe they were all the best! 🙂

2014

Being at the movies with the boys and then eating afterwards at IHOP. Spending the time with them. It was Shay’s treat which made it even better. 🙂 We had fun and it got us out of the house. 🙂

Question? What’s the last meal someone cooked for you?

2012

It was when hubby was home on R&R in May. He is currently deployed. He made Mac&Cheese with hamburger in it. His favorite that he likes to make. Sure miss him.

2013

Guess no one cooked for me.

2014

Monday Shay made the sloppy joes while I caught up on dishes that go in the dishwasher. It was yummy and simple. He is learning. 🙂

Letters Feb 2013 006 Envelopes I made out of some wild paper! 🙂

June 19

Question? What was the last personal letter you received?

2012

Gosh, I can not recall. I have had cards but not much is written in them. I think maybe the last letter was Farra when she was at Colby going to college last year.

2013

Obviously, no letters arrived.

2014

It’s been since Christmas and that was a newsletter type letter. We get mostly junk mail. BLAH.

June 20

Question? Write the first sentence of your autobiography.

2012

I am a creative but quiet woman who loves adventure.

2013

I have no words.

2014

Who am I?

June 21

Question? What do you want to know better?

2012

I want to be more fluent with my design software. This way I can get jobs or sell products.

2013

No entry.

2014

I want to know more about Illustrator. I have the software but have yet barely touched the surface of it.

Edgar-Loo-doodle I made this in Illustrator. My writing muse! 🙂

 

 

 

Gobble, gobble was yummy!

My Thanksgiving Day was really nice. My daughter had the big dinner and all four kids were together. I know that may not happen each year on the day it is suppose to but we will get together on some day in November. One must keep the family going strong and being together cause life goes way to fast to not spend a little time with each other. She even invited over three other soldiers that could not make it home which made it even more fun. Her boyfriend had his two nephews and they kept hubby and I rather busy. It was fun. I think I better get into better shape before my kids start having grandbabies because I was tired. LOL, but we enjoyed it.

We can not get enough turkey so we made a small one for us on Saturday with the two younger boys. Yum. Hubby did not get to make one last year because of being overseas so he was determined that he was making one. We feasted all weekend on turkey. I suppose we will make one more come Christmas time. Funny that the stores have them all year but we never think to make one except during the holiday time. We have had eight pumpkin pies in the last week, now that we make them from the can and not from the freezer, we are going crazy making them.

We did get our Christmas tree up this weekend. So far the cats have not destroyed it. We have the water bottle handy and ready to aim! They do not like that! LOL…

I did a little bit of shopping but I am one of those down to the last minute shoppers. I try to get organized but it just doesn’t work. I am a bit ahead of the game this year. I did some online Thanksgiving morning and snagged a couple gifts. I did go with the daughter and oldest son to Thanksgiving shopping that evening, but I didn’t buy anything. It was fun just to watch the other crazies and to help the daughter man the cart. It was our first time shopping, usually we are working. It was interesting. Gonna have to try it again.
