It’s the end of the school year, so things are hectic around here. I READ the first two books in Steifvaters Raven Cycle and I’ve been burning through Audible credits:
History of the World in Six Glasses Kitchen Confidental Echo in the Bone and Suttree are the most recent…
Also dabbled in some writing of my own, and I plan on getting back here regularly starting tomorrow 🙂
To quote: “I’m not dead yet…”
Sorry about the hiatus. I’ve missed blogging and the research. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things this week. Happy New Year’s!
This post made me wish I were in college again, enjoying my semester in Madrid. Someday I’ll get back! Thanks for the smile & memories. 🙂 The posts for parts 1 & 3 were awesome too.
We’re still out of town, so this is a quick post-let:
1. Thank a veteran today & take the time to listen to the old family stories for the millionth time.
2. If you’re a military history buff, check out THIS post I did a while back.
3. For a really interesting perspective on the aftermath of war, check out these authors, and then thank a vet again.
4. Randomly, I always thought of Memorial day as a general day of remembrance, not just for vets (not that I disagree at all) and ALL the graves in the local cemeteries will get spiffed up… is this a regional thing?
The question of the week over at The Broke and The Bookish is: What are the top 10 sites you visit that AREN’T about books?
In the spirit of wasting time, here’s my list:
1. Facebook.- duh. I love being able to talk to friends & family, lurk and know what’s going on, etc. We all know the game. I DON’T play any of the games though…just not my thing. I also ignore all game requests.
4. my wordpress reader (when it’s working. ahem.) I follow the knitting, cooking, weaving, and travel sections among others. fun times.
5. The Pioneer Woman & All-recipes.com
6. CNN, USAToday, & NPR.org. I love the news.
8. Google. Anytime I need to know, I start there. Call me a lemming.
