Hey there blog land! It was another lazy Saturday at my house this weekend! Needed a new book to download for my Nook last night, so I downloaded “Something Borrowed” by Emily Giffin & had a hard time putting it down last night. Then when I woke up this morning around 8:00, I grabbed the Nook & had to read at least another two chapters before getting up for the day. So far, it’s a really good book! It’s another one of those books that been made into a movie. I believe it’s going to be released in theaters shortly and has Kate Hudson & Ginnifer Goodwin as the main characters, so that should be good.
Then after I got up, I sat on the couch in front of the t.v. with the laptop on my lap trying to figure out what I was going to do for the day. Other than doing some cleaning around the house, not much else got accomplished today. I kept thinking I was going to go to a movie, but I think I might go to one tomorrow instead since I don’t have any plans for Easter. I wasn’t going to go see “Water for Elephants” right away, but I keep hearing such good things about it, I just might have to. I also really want to see “Soul Surfer”, as I’m a surfing movie freak…love them!
I wanted to get some of the project done that I started last weekend, but I didn’t have the energy, as it’s a tedious project and will probably take me a few weekends and many hours on the couch to complete. It will be so cool looking when I’m done though, but I’m not telling you what it is…you’ll have to wait for that blog post when it’s all finished! 🙂
The only thing I did manage to get done today was the above painting. I’ve had the canvas all ready for a couple weeks, but I was trying to think of the right word or design I wanted to put on it. Then when I was watching “Lilo & Stitch” today, it got to the part where Stitch says, “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten“. And I thought, perfect….”OHANA”! Then I added in the little hibiscus flower design for that little bit of Hawaiian flair & Whaaaala…painting complete! Hope you like it…I do! 🙂
After a very busy & loooooong day at work, it was so nice to come home to see a box in front of my door & I knew exactly what was inside! Seven brand spanking new books for the bookshelf! YEAH! So, sue me…I’m a big nerd that gets excited when she gets new books!
I’ve already ready “Vision in White” that a friend lent me & it was so good I just had to get it, in addition to the three other books in the bride quartett series! Can’t wait to read these, especially after the first book was so good! Then, a co-worker suggested that I read “Duma Key” by Stephen King. I’ve never been a big reader of his books, but she swears that it’s the best one out of all of the ones he’s written, so I hope it’s as good as she says! Then “The Pioneer Woman” is just a city girl meets cowboy true love story, so had to get that one! And last, but not least, “Sh*t My Dad Says”…..hey, everyone needs a good laugh every now and then!
Now, I’ve already written up a book review on “Vision in White” on my prior blog, but I will go ahead and post it hear too, just so you can get a snip-it of the book! It was never a book I would have picked up myself, but a friend read it & kept hounding me to read it when she brought it for me to borrow. But I was totally in love with the book once I made myself sit down and get into the book. Okay, so on with the review!
To make it short & sweet, I loved “Vision in White” by Nora Roberts. The book, the first one in the series of the bride quartet set, is full of love and friendship, which makes me laugh and smile and is just an enjoyable read.
Ahh…A clean slate to start, yet another blog! I’ve blogged on and off for years, but typically get bored after a while….this time instead of not blogging for a while I just decided to start a new one! After a while there is only so much you can do to redesign your blog, especially if you gave your blog a title/blog address that is hard to design around.
