Fall Back

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

There may not be a person on this earth more happy to “fall back” than this girl! I’m always looking for ways to get a little bit more rest. Sleeping in an extra hour on Sunday just makes me want to skip and sing! Honestly, I won’t be sleeping any later…but the extra hour will make me feel as if I’m getting away with something. And who doesn’t like to do that?

I’ll waste it doing something important, I promise. It’s a blessing to have a little more time to do whatever. Which reminds me, I have one week left until I get to hold my new Kindle Fire in my hands. I’ve been all over Amazon’s site shopping and trying to familiarize myself with their book system.

It’s confusing. I can’t find the great deals that I know are out there. I’m also sad that my other books (from my Nook) can’t be transferred over. 🙁 The freebies at the Library are minimal too. But, I’m not complaining! I don’t even have it yet so what do I have to whine about? I’m just feeling a bit intimidated learning a new device.

Sad life, huh?

Phil 4:11-12
“I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.”

Wise words from the Apostle Paul. Good encouragement for when I lose perspective.

It’s another beautiful weekend here in Indiana. The leaves are scattered and the air is crispy with blue skies and sun shining bright. I’m planning a bit of shopping with my birthday girl later and maybe even hubby (he’s been sick for the last few days). I love having free time with the ones I love….

Don’t you? Enjoy your extra hour, friends.

Oh So Pretty

I have this hankerin right now for a cover for my nook. The problem? I’ve searched high and low trying to find one that will not only protect my precious nook but that I will love too! Everything I’ve found looks cheap or mass produced. I don’t like any of them. But, I think I’ve found the one for me….finally. The only problem is that it’s way out of my spending range (I was thinking around $20-25) and this is $49 from Barnes & Noble.

Look how purty it is…. I want what I want but I don’t want to spend more than I have to. I’m cheap cheap! 😉

I’ve also been wishing for some rain boots. I’ve searched ebay, Amazon and all the many online shoe hotspots but I haven’t found a pair that A) I love and B) that I’m willing to pay that much for. But I think……I’m almost sure that I want some like these.

Looky looky….I got a Nooky!

I didn’t want him to buy me one! Really! I wanted to WIN ONE! But he’s ADHD and being impulsive is high on his weakness list.

Today, as I pulled into my garage….I saw a box at my front door! By the time I made it inside to get it, it didn’t exist. When I asked around (to the two very smiley teenagers) no one knew what in the world I was talking about. Uhh, ok!

While I was slaving cooking dinner, I ran into my room for my cellphone and found it laying on a pink “thing”. I was in a hurry so I just grabbed the phone and ran back to the kitchen. I thought for a nano-second about whatever that was….mmm, pink book? Hmm!

After dinner, we were sitting around talking and I mentioned the secret box and everyone giggled except hubby. He said, “If you only paid attention to what your cellphone was sitting on top of…” I jumped up and ran for the bedroom because I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THAT WAS!

MY OWN NOOK! YAY, ME!!

He promises that he had already purchased it before I blogged the DON’T BUY IT warning! Yea, ok. Whatev!

Thank you Honey! I love it! Can’t wait to drive you crazy trying to learn how to use it. And it’s so pink and pretty! 🙂

SHUTDOWN

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I think our homecoming week has hit a roadblock! At this very minute, the weather people are shouting loud and clear…..LOTS OF SNOW coming at midnight and lasting through Friday. 🙁

As in, HOMECOMING DAY Friday! Boo!

So, I’m here blogging on my bed surrounded by my teen girls, the dog and daddy trying to sinc new cellphones with old ones. All three of us living as if there will be a NO SCHOOL call in the morning. {It’s 11pm for goodness sakes!}

We’re going to pay bigtime if we have school! 😉

Oh, and since I’m up late throwing caution to the wind….I found a fun little contest over at Barnes & Noble. I don’t want to purchase one of these but if I won it…..oh yea! I’d squeal like a girl! Go check it out for yourself. Signing up is easy! While you’re Nook looking, The Pioneer Woman has her new book available for a free download (an excerpt only) Nook or Kindle. Love her and her cool story!

So, the question is……SNOWDAY or HOMECOMING?
