Happy Sunday all. Another busy week has come and gone. We had flurries a few days this week but tonight we are expecting more snowfall, could be up to 8 inches. I feel like this always happens in March. It will start later this afternoon and continue through the whole night into the early morning so I’ve got my fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow.

Also of note this past week, we went ax throwing with a group of friends and that was alot of fun. I want to go back again. I had beginner’s luck and got a bullseye on my first throw.

Good morning everyone. I inadvertently took a blog break these last two weeks. Just busy with work and life in general so blogging took the back-burner once again.

So, it is still February. Then comes a long, cold March. Yuck. We had two minor snow storms these past two weeks that resulted in early dismissals from work which just meant driving home in snow and slush and traffic just a few hours earlier than normal. Then having the car covered in a sheet of ice the following morning. Well, enough with the complaining, Spring is around the corner, I can feel it. I want warm weather and nice scenic drives and the beach and food truck festivals….and walks in the park…

Hello blog friends and happy Sunday. Oh my gosh, December is flying by. Christmas is coming soon and as always life is busy and hectic but I am trying not to get overwhelmed. It is cold by me, so very cold. It makes me want to stay inside as much as I can. I did some online Christmas shopping on Cyber Monday so that was good and the rest I’m doing at the mall one night this week. As of yesterday my tree is up and it smells so nice and piney. I enjoy relaxing in the living room and looking at the tree this time of year. Do you do the same?

I haven’t holiday baked yet but soon I hope. I like to make sugar cookies using this recipe but the mood hasn’t stricken yet.
Aside from that I’ve been doing alot of crocheting and watching scary ghost documentaries on tv as per my usual. I will watch the occasional Hallmark Christmas movie here and there too.

Also, I’ve been blasting Queen music on my morning commute more often than not lately. By the way this gif also represents how I act when I finish crocheting a blanket and show it off to friends and family.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-A-Thon April 2018

dewey

Good morning everyone. Popping in this morning to get my Read-A-Thon post up and running.  I took an unexpected blog break these past couple of weeks; just the regular everyday stuff, work, my kids, the nice weather beckoning me. We even took a drive out down the shore last weekend. I also finished up two books during this time so that was good. I will be playing catch up this weekend on blog land.

Well, it is Read-A-Thon time, good luck to all who are reading today! This is my main post so I will be updating it as I read during the next 24 hours.

Here is the opening meme. Feel free to answer in the comments, on your blog, on Twitter, or wherever you’re sharing your reading today.

1) What fine part of the world are you reading from today? New Jersey
2) Which book in your stack are you most looking forward to? I am reading Earl Interrupted (The Daring Marriages #2) by Amanda Forester
3) Which snack are you most looking forward to? I’ve got a bag of plain Lays and a can of Coke calling my name for later.
4) Tell us a little something about yourself! I’m a mom, a wife and I love to read and crochet.
5) If you participated in the last read-a-thon, what’s one thing you’ll do different today? If this is your first read-a-thon, what are you most looking forward to? I’ve been participating for many years and I always enjoy the hourly updates and challenges and meeting new bloggers. I always manage to read one book during this event, so that is what I am aiming to do today.

Hello all, I almost didn’t have time to do my updates post this weekend but then I made the time. It is blogging tradition and I really like chatting about my week and hearing about what you are all up to also so thanks for stopping in.

It has been another hectic work week for me and it snowed a few mornings too. Just a few inches but enough to have me up earlier and cleaning my car off. I put in a 6 day workweek with late nights, 52 hours this week so the OT is a nice perk at least. Also, they feed us and cater lunch a few days a week. I’m part of a team of employees that was chosen for a project throughout the month of March and it has been interesting meeting new people and learning a different skill set. We even got a St. Patrick’s Day get together with wine, beer and good food on Friday after work so that was really nice too. The Irish Soda bread was so good! I cannot complain. It is nice to be appreciated.
