A Little of This and That


I’m in between books, which always makes me feel a little naked. Like when I forget my wedding ring. Or clothes. 

But during my break, I get to catch up on reading and I’ve been barreling through some books. I pick one book on my eReader and I only get to read while I’m at the gym, so hello extra motivation for going to the gym. I’ve read two books so far.

And I’ve been reading hard copy books in the car line and at night before I drift off to sleep. I’ve enjoyed them all. 

Also, I’ve been watching the Gilmore Girls. Thank you, Charissa, for having all 7 seasons on DVD. My husband wants to kill you thanks you too! I’m almost halfway through season 6 so when I get done, I’m sure a blog post and a debate between who Rory really belongs to will come. Right, Melissa Tagg? Anywho, I’m addicted to the show and can’t believe I didn’t watch it when it was actually on TV. Craziness I tell you.

Let’s see…my daughter is going to be bass captain next year which is so awesome and I’m excited for her! She finally gets to boss people around and not get grounded for it! 

I think my laptop might have a virus. It’s not puking or running fever but it’s super slow. Joint pain, maybe? I probably should have put some anti-virus software on it, but alas, I did not.

The weather is gorgeous here which makes for great days out on the patio, minus the wasps and bumblebees which just keep me in a state of anxiety so relaxation doesn’t actually come but I’m getting a little sun and exercise. 

My new favorite drink is the hazelnut macchiato at Starbucks. Not too sweet. Just loaded enough to keep my mouth running–as if I need any help. Ask anyone.

My niece is getting married soon and I’m stoked to be there, though I’m reading some off-the-wall poem I still can’t understand and I’ve read it at least a hundred times. I’m not sure they get it or anyone will get it but I’m prepared to hear dozens of attendees ask me, “Was that about (insert interpretation here)?

And I will say, “It was about one minute of my life I’ll never get back.” (I’m kind of kidding but not really.) Nah, I’m glad to be able to participate in the wedding. It’s going to be gorgeous!

Then I’m going on vacation. With my family. In case you weren’t sure. Not my family that got married. Then it would be the honeymoon.

And now the winner of Liz Johnson’s Stolen Memories is: Grove’s Photography!! Please email me at jrpatch(at)yahoo(dot)com so I can send the book to you! Congrats! 

What’s going on with you?

  1. You make me smile. I love stream of consciousness.

  2. Still love the above pictured plant (you used it in a book, didn't you???) Still can't remember it's name. Still am trying to make it grow alongside my house. Not that anything is growing around here yet. LOL

    Yeah, B! Bass captain (and I still read that as Bass the fist, not bass the musical stuff)

    Go watch another episode of GG. Ya know you want to:)

  3. On the slow laptop – check the color scheme you're running. Some will slow the system down quite a bit.


  4. YEAH Gilmore Girls!! You need to write that blog post about who Rory belongs with and you can be sure I will be here to rebut it. Wait, I've already written my own post on who she belongs with…so I will just point you to that. I just can't understand people liking Logan over Jess. I just don't get it!!!!

    Also this post and others like it from you convince me that we have never had a chance to hang out in person enough. I mean, ACFW, yes. But it's always so fast. If you're there this year, let's make sure we get plenty of hangout time!

  5. HA! You're like me. I have a book I keep in my purse for appointments or waiting in the car, then I have my Ipad in my bedroom, and my kindle for the pool or beach. LOL

    Just got back from vacation, so after all the laundry I've done, I'm ready for another! LOL
