Life Lately

It's only been a week-ish since my last post? Well...that's less time than it feels like! Good for me!

Things are so busy for me these days. Not in a bad way, really. Just in a "wow, I could really use a day off sometime soon before I snap and strangle someone" sort of way.
Jobs are so over-rated.

Anyhoozle. I won't bore you any more with these little details of my life that are far from the "fun bits" that I like to talk about here.

~The Fun Bits~

1.) I finally finished reading The False Prince.

 It took me....a lot longer than it should have. Not that the book wasn't good. Because it was awesome and you should go read it too. Just because things are busy and I didn't have time. I read the first chapter one week. Then the second chapter over a week and a half-ish. Then somewhere right around chapter four I got some momentum. And finished the book in two sittings. It was very good. Read it.

2.) The weather is so confusing around here. We've been having glorious warm days that make me a little stir-crazy. I want to be outside! The sun's all like, "Hellooo, Ladies!" and I want to shout hello back. But people might think I'm crazy and be afraid. So I don't.
Then the last couple of days have been cold, snowy and very, very wet.
So confusing. Maybe the sun is sad that I never say hello. *Arches eyebrows thoughtfully*
Never mind. Sunny days are a sure thing this weekend.

3.) Sunny days are definitely for being outside. Here are some pictures from a few days ago when the weather was glorious.

And the cool shot I got of the sky from out of the window.

4.) I finished season one of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Wow. Loved it!
The show really pulled itself together. The first few episodes, though really fun to watch, weren't super driven, but about halfway through they definitely found their legs and the finale was downright upsetting.

5.) Ah yes. Doodles. I don't usually care for the way my doodles turn out, but stick a pen in my hand and leave me alone with some paper and there will be doodles. I can't help it.
Here are a few I am rather pleased with.

6.) I'm really looking forward to Monday. I'm off work! Thank you, Memorial Day! 

God Bless!


  1. Wow, sun and then snow in May?? Here (Scotland) it was tipping it down earlier but is now bright sunshine, which is pretty normal, but snow in May is *not* something we experience very often!!

    I reallly want to read The False Prince now (having seen it on three different blogs!). Lovely doodles. :)

    1. Oh yes. Snow. Always. Where I live it's pretty common to get snow in May. And June sometimes. Blaah.

      You should. It's a really good book and I really enjoyed it. :)

  2. THE FALSE PRINCE!!!!! I am so happy you are all reading it. (Hide from the world when you read book three. It is easier to handle if you can just stop living for a while)

    Snow. It is spring, the weather needs to give sunshine!

    I am watching the SHIELD finale tonight. I saw the second to the last one last night and was yelling through most of it. Hopefully I won't wake anyone up over the finale.

    MISS YOU!!!

    1. Yeah, I want to get my hands on the second book. I'm off tomorrow and Monday and I'd like to plow through it. :)

      I am so looking forward to your opinion of that last episode. Especially Fitz. And Coulson.

      Miss you too!
