At Home in the Family Cabin

Today I am excited to share the family cabin with you. Its like a time machine from the 70's that you wont want to miss. We come here every year and it never changes.

 The walls are a soft salmon pink throughout the whole house, along with many golden trinkets and mirrors dotting the walls.

 What is a beach cabin without the many coastal nick nacks and art? These are lost of fun.

 One of the best pieces in the cabin is this lamp. Its made of a thick glass, tinted orange (My favorite color) and it hangs over a prime reading spot near the windows.

 A high backed couch adorned in a floral pattern. This is the place to read a book on a cool summer evening while you listen to the waves crash on the beach in the background.

 Love this clock. It wouldn't work in my house, but it fits in with the beach decor at the cabin.

 More gold over the well used fireplace. It keeps the place nice and cozy in the cool evenings.

 Another shot of the trinkets. You have to have little fat statues. It's a must!

And of course there are the little cups. They barely fit in your hand, but they are great for sipping your favorite beverage. Just forget about quenching your thirst though, there isn't one cup big enough for that.

We had a blast this year in the cabin. I can't wait to go back again next August.

If you have a home or special spot you would like me to feature, please send some photos to me at shendersonphoto(at) I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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…
