Lazy Sunday afternoon.....

Ok, first blog of the year. Why did I wait so long you might ask? I have no idea. Just saying. Its been a long hard January. We ran out of fire wood to heat the house right as the "Big winter storm," came blowing in. Woke up one morning to the house being 57 degrees. I don't like taking a shower when I can see my breath, not cool, lol pun intended. But thanks to my wonderful father in law, we have a working furnace again and warm toes to boot.
Ronan and Phoenix were really excited to see snow, although it wasn't much at our house we ventured out in the weather and found a nice load at grandmees.






 I hoped it would stick around and I wouldn't have to go to work day after day, but my wishes never came true.

In other news, we had a lazy Sunday and got a wild hair up our ass and made some cookies that would trump our idea of naming our next son Harry (get it? Harry Henderson. lol) I know, i'm a nerd. We made Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies. I had one and they are, as Barney always says, Legendary! Check these out,

The oreo cream oozes out when you bite into them. Jason is now making Pineapple upside down cup cakes, so we'll see how those turn out. I guess I get to eat like a fat kid today, ah poo. Maybe one of these days I'll lose those horrible pounds that I gained over the Christmas holidays. I'm so close, then on to more weight after that, and more weight after that. Will I ever stop? Who the heck knows.

I finally finished the first chapter of my book. It only took me a month, but I had to lots of research and make sure its just right. Its almost 4500 words and 21 pages. I'm already 2500 words into chapter 2. Its going to be... wait for it... Legendary!

Well till next time, adios!!!!

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
