I have fallen victim to the modern convenience of grocery shopping. I don't know much about what's in my favorite foods or where each ingredient comes from. I know so little that every new fact is game changing. I may not be aware of a lot when it comes to foods, but I do enjoy … Continue reading Back into Cooking… maybe.
Whoa, haven't done one of these in a while. It feels... strange. But, not bad. This month, I've decided to read a little bit out of my comfort zone, and I'm not all that mad about it to be honest. I've been reading a lot of halloween vibe books lately and am absolutely loving it. … Continue reading WWW Wednesday
I have had a taste for soup this season. I've made potato and chicken noodle and tomato. I look forward to making chicken and dumpling soup later this autumn, and trying a new recipe - butternut squash. I've had butternut squash soup once, at a friend's house on New Years Eve 2012, and I want … Continue reading Intentional Soup
Today was a good day for soup and reading and puppy cuddles. I woke up naturally at 6 am. Let the pup outside. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to carry him down the steps to the grass this morning. We've gotten a lot of rain recently and the pup does NOT like … Continue reading A day of cuddles
★★★★ I think that I've decided to avoid 2020 by re-reading a series that I absolutely adored when I had first read the series, and reread it (around 2011). I think, if I'm remembering correctly, I finished this series in my Shelfari days (before GoodReads) and then marked my first re-read on GoodReads. Honestly, I'm … Continue reading Wicca: Sweep 1-3 |Cate Tiernan| Book Talk
Upkeep on the house has been interesting lately. With younger sister moving back in and chaos still ensuing from clearing everything out of bedrooms and the dining room and living room. And, eventually I've found that taking some quiet time to care for the house plants and watch the bird feeder grounds me. Which, is … Continue reading Another Grounding.
One of my favorite parts of October is sitting outside with a blanket, a cup of coffee coffee and a good book. This month, I look forward to watching leaves fall and change. I am so ready for cooler months - not cold. Just, cool. In addition to my Hocus Pocus TBR, I'm going to … Continue reading October 2020 TBR
This month, I plan to participate in the Hocus Pocus readathon (info here). I chose team Sanderson Sisters because I really, really want to read the group book: Mooncakes. There are four prompts for the Sanderson Sisters team, and I plan to complete all of them. GoodReads | BookShop I don't think I've read anything … Continue reading Hocus Pocus Readathon TBR
September began, as it should have, with decorations. I put up some ceramic pumpkins and finally installed some shelves in my bedroom - which I think I'm going to be using as a TBR location. And, I fell back in love with reading. This month, I finished a respectable 7 books, and I couldn't be … Continue reading September 2020 Wrap Up
Lately, there has been a lot of rain and thunderstorms and, while I am grateful that the weather has dipped some, the freshly filled holes for the fence posts have eroded a little - leaving just enough space for the little one to rebel. I was at work, and received a terrifying phone call from … Continue reading Oh deer
