Bits and Pieces.

I have been pondering this week what to write in my blog....I am kind of stumped. I want to stay away from everyday happenings, and write about deeper things, but apparantly I ain't too deep this week.

Perhaps it is because wonderful hubby is home this week on holidays. We couldn't really afford to go away, so it has been nice having him around the house pottering around. I have to admit that I am sort of feeling envious of him.....he is on holidays, doing things he likes to do.....playing with Gracie....not at work. He told me that when he was on holidays to think of it like holidays for me too.....sweet of him, but so unrealistic. I of course still have all my regular everyday chores, cooking (which I am NOT enjoying) and don't feel like I am on holidays. I shouldn't complain though, he does make it easier by keeping the little angel out of my hair.

I am looking forward to this evening, the season opener of CSI....I am addicted to that show, I could do with out the excess gore, but I think if I had another life, I would be a CSI, just a glorified Sherlock Holmes!!

I have almost completed my Christmas shopping, that makes me very happy!!

I am reading Gone with the Wind, a little daunting as the book is as big as a two year old child, but good nontheless, it is well written and quite captivating. Scarlette is sure a ___, well!! She is!!

I have just finished reading the Harry potter series, minus the seventh book (no spoilers please!!!) so I am going to start watching the movies again, so that I can have it all refreshed in my mind. I love doing that, reading the book first and then watching the movie.

Well I hope this blog wasn't too mundane, I like to think and learn and be creative, when I read all the other blogs out there, there are so many talented writers, but hey, I need a break from creativity!!

Christmas???? I as confused as Andrea!!! LOL! Christmas hasn't even crossed my mind--but then again it is still high 90's here on most days....maybe when I feel the first cold wind...I'll be able to think about it. :) Everyday happenings are great--we can't be deep and insightful all the time. Seriously :)

I had to take sort of a double take........ DONE WITH YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING?! Does Christmas come earlier where you live because .. um... You make me look B-A-D!

Are you LOVIN' Gone with the Wind?! I love it... I should read it again! Have you seen the movie?

Harry Potter lover are ya? I haven't gotten into that, but there are so many Harry Potter Book set giveaways around the Blogosphere.. I might win one and give it a try.

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
