Updated The Blog

Decided the blog needed a new look.  🙂

A work in progress, but so far I am liking it.

It has been a hot last few weeks around here. Today we are finally getting some good rain. I hope it cools things down. Our grass is starting to turn brown.  😦

Oh, the A/C is running nonstop lately even with it on 80 degrees!

All the flowers I planted are done and gone. I do not have a green thumb. I am sure I will keep trying though.  LOL

I have not read or wrote lately. I had goals this summer to get a lot done there. Darn it. I have had some fun with the family so that is ok.

I did start a new part-time job working at home. I have been enjoying that. I am still figuring out the schedule. When you can do it anytime during the day that makes for chaos at times.

I am a HUGE procrastinator!

Not a good combo when you want to get things done. A calendar and list helps but still too easy to put things off. The only thing I hate about the new job is having to take care of the self-employment taxes.

Ugh.

I’m not sure how long it will last. I’m a ‘independent consultant’, so no definite time frame. I work for a data company so whenever the business that hired them is done with us then the job is done. Or I do crappy.  😦  But so far so good. 🙂

I believe once school starts again it will be a bit easier. Right now, too easy to lay in bed or sleep in.  LOL

I am enjoying while I can is my theory.

Welp, I need to get to work! Good thing I don’t have to go too far. 🙂 Ah the perks.

Have a great weekend!

Tess’s Tale by Donna Joy Usher

I read this book as part of a pre-release reading group I signed up for. I was surprised I made the cut, usually I do not get to my emails for days. Ooops.

I am doing better now with the emails since keeping up with them pays off!

Love this author. First book I read by her was The Seven Steps to Closure. I laughed my butt off! Highly recommend it.

This book belongs to a series, first book is Cocoa & Chanel and the second one is Goons N Roses. They are both fun and easy reads. Full of mischief and great characters.

I read the whole series and loved it!

If you click on the title it will take you to her Goodreads page and if you would like to purchase and read you may. 🙂

I read it in one day! I would definitely read the first two so it will make more sense. 🙂

My Current Read

I discovered this author a few years ago when I went to the library. I love her writing. Simple, fun, and mysterious. She has wrote a ton of books. It will take me forever to read them all because I like to mix up my authors since there are many good ones.

This year I am going to read both ebooks and the good ole hand around the book. Last year I read mostly ebooks because there are many new authors and I couldn’t stop downloading them.

I didn’t make my reading goal last year but I have a good feeling that I will this year.

Happy reading everyone.

750words

I was going through some blogs on the internet, imagine that, and discovered a lovely sight called 750words.com. It is a place where you can log in everyday and just randomly write 750 words and receive points and badges. It is a way to get yourself to come up with fresh ideas or just to blow off steam and no one reads it but you. Nifty. I can now yell at my computer when I am mad at my hubby or kids. Cool!

I wasted no time writing away and believe it or not reached the 750 in no time. If writing my novel were just that easy, I would have several novels. The next day the sight analyzes your mood, your thinking, and so forth. It will have a link that you can share on Twitter or Facebook. I think I will like this and I think I will get some awesome brainstorming done. Hey whatever gets me motivated. I would like to think wine would do that, but it hasn’t, just another reason to have a nice glass of wine. 🙂

I can not wait until tomorrow to see how it analyzes my thoughts, scary. 🙂
