Oh man… Today our church had services outside and then a picnic and fun and games after. Gwen, my 15-year-old, entered the watermelon eating contest and came in second. She at an entire melon and hasn’t felt up to much eating since.. lol. Cotton candy, snow cones, hillbilly golf (no idea what that is), three-legged races, sack races and so much more. All told, we were out on the blacktop in the unhindered sunshine for about 3 hours, and went home hot, FULL, and ready for fellowshippin’ with Pastor Pillow and Sister Sheets! Not long ago, after scratching my forehead, I f0und my skin to be rather warm and sensitive. My arms are a warm pinky color, but my face is a shiny red sunburn. yay. Guess I’ll be tearing into the aloe plant in a bit 😉
I finally got the bookmarks from my old computer and put them on here. The kids are being good little troupers and not complaining about the lack of internet. Someone suggested I get a router to plug into the modem, and then plug my and their computers into it. I hope it’s not terrible expensive, I’m already a desk and 25-foot cable into it.
Also, since my desk has been covered with stacks of books, which all went onto my bed when I took out the old computer and put in the new one, making sleep nigh impossible that night (especially since Mags had crawled in my bed while I was working), I finally broke down and got a new bookcase… a HALF bookcase, I don’t intend on filling it… nope, no way… nuh uh! But, within 24 hours, it had been claimed by someone else.
Well, I’m hoping for a better week of reading and looking forward to maybe settling back down into a routine, again. I’m also wondering if maybe I should go through Mt. TBR and being honest with myself, “Am I really ever going to read this?” Especially if it’s something I know a lot of people have wishlisted. I’ve already found a home for The Audacity of Hope, which I got last year along with McCain’s book with the plan of doing a post of opposing candidates. Honestly, I’m not going to read it now, and BM had 199 people wanting it, so it’s going on to a new TBR pile. Maybe they’ll read it, lol.
I’ve come to a point in having too many books *gasp, clutch pearls! That’s blasphemy!* where I’ve bought or mooched books I already had, and, if I never got another book, it’d take me at least 3 or 4 years to get through them all. I should unsubscribe to Shelf-Awareness… lol… but I’d just go to the website. Too many books and NOT ENOUGH TIME!
K, so now I’ve come to the point in the post to announce the winner of the Something Beyond Greatness giveaway 🙂 And that winner is: sdechantal! Congratulations, if you’ll send me your address, I’ll get that out in the mail to you next week 🙂
and now, a video of MY OWN 😀 YaY! I love my computer, I can now share my pics and vids from my new camera! This is my dog, Missy. She’s a Rat Terrier, and her favorite thing in the world is Hardee’s. Can you guess what her LEAST favorite thing is?
and while watching the vid here, Missy started getting excited and prancing around. She thought I was saying these things, NOW, to her… LOL….
