Family Photos

My mother has been wanting to get new family photos for a while now, but has put it off a few times, because either my sister or I was pregnant.  But we finally got around to getting them a few weeks ago. Our photographer did a great job, especially with Millie and her cousin, Charli. …

Book It!

Another month has gone by where I’ve only finished one book, but it was a good book. Soul Music Soul Music is the Terry Pratchett’s 16th novel about Discworld, and the 3rd to feature the anthropomorphic personification of death, who happens to be my favorite character on the Disc. In this particular novel, Death isn’t…

Ole’ Fashioned Corn Shuckin’

It’s harvest season.  That means I’m dealing with my annual bout of itchy eyes and sneezing.  I don’t think I was meant to live in the country, but somehow that’s where I’ve ended up.  That means I’m living on Benedryl and Alaway Allergy Eye Drops. I’ll use a generic version of Benedryl in a heartbeat,…

Mildred Jane at 6 Months

Mildred Jane is 6 months old now.  A whole half a year!  I feel like it’s a miracle she’s survived so long with me for a mom.  I couldn’t get anything except serious face when I tried to take her 6 month pictures,  but she was extra smiley when we had family pictures taken a…

WIP Wednesday – Photobook Edition

I’ve spent some spare time over the last couple of days scanning in old family photos for a photo book that I’m working on for my mom. It was her Mother’s Day present this year, but we had to tell her about it, as we needed the photos from her, and we are including my…

Book It!

Would you believe me if I told you that I only finished one book this month?  It’s true. Finding time to read has been dicey lately, as Mil hasn’t been feeling the best. She’s going thru a phase where she isn’t happy unless you’re holding her, and honestly, all I want to do when she’s…

Bookish Question – How do you get ARCS?

How do you get ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) of books? Recently, the lovely Anna in Spain asked me how I got my ARC copies of books.  And that is a great question.  If you’re new to book reviewing, you probably don’t know where to start to get ARCs for review, which leaves you reviewing books…

WIP Wednesday – A Day Late

I feel like I never have time to get any sewing done since Milli showed up.  I’m certainly home just as much as I was before she was born, and Milli doesn’t require a lot right now, but she seems to want to be held constantly in the evenings, to the point that I can’t…
