Another Update!

I’ve decided that I want to get back into the habit of writing and blogging everyday and while I don’t exactly have all the time in the world I’ve decided that I can squeeze in a half hour everyday if that’s what it takes to get back into a routine. I love writing and blogging, it fuels my creative outlet.

There has been a lack of book reviews this month despite the pile up of books sitting to be read and reviewed. I hit a snag with two books that I was attempting to read and they’ve put me behind severely. I’m terribly sorry, I will try to have another  up within the next week. Possibly on the weekend.

I started up a sims blog yesterday, I got back into playing, actually playing a family versus building and decorating. I started a legacy family. It’s different mostly because I’m not looking to write a story – that’s where I get stuck it seems is telling the story. So my posts will be mostly picture laden with a few words here and there possibly explaining the moments before and after the picture was taken. I’ve also decided not to follow a legacy challenge I just want to see how long I can keep the family going. You can follow it here if you like: Just Another Sims 3 Blog. I’ll be attempting to move all my pages over within the next week.



So lately I’ve been a little behind with updating….it happens.
I recently went back to work…post ankle injury and wouldn’t you know my ankle has been swollen since my first shift back – not surprised, just maybe a little peeved.

With the Sims 3 Island Paradise expansion…post…I played and found that I am totally in love. Island Paradise has to be by far my favorite expansion pack yet that I own.

My reading and reviewing has been lacking lately…*cough* … *cough*…
I started to read The Tyrant’s Daughter by J. C. Carleson and surprisingly it’s taking me forever and I mean that. It’s an ARC from Netgalley and of course I have it on my phone as opposed to my e-reader since the phone is well on me all the time. That’s besides the point…it’s a good story, I’m enjoying it, it just feels like it’s taking forever to read it. I like it but I mean I can put it down and walk away for a few days before I think to pick it back up again.

My copy of A Holiday Miracle In Apple Blossom by June Mccrary Jacobs – the uncorrected proof from Bookworm Lisa’s Clear Your Shelf Hop   came in the mail, so that review will hopefully be up soon.

Books on the prominent to read list:

1. The Tyrant’s Daughter by J. C. Carleson – Currently reading…and like I mentioned above, it’s taking forever.
2. A Holiday Miracle In Apple Blossom by June Mccrary Jacobs
3. My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Piccoult
4. The Laird Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins
5. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin


My Obscene design magazine collection

obscene magazine collection

Just thought I should post this, I had to clean out my desk area for my sister in law and decided to organize my magazine collection before I took it upstairs. I’ve been collecting for years and I finally brought it all together, it’s big enough to fill three milk crates full and boy are they heavy to move.  It all fuels my inspiration in my design world and when decorating in sims 3.
