Diary of an Iphone…

With a few days of scattered showers, I can now tell that our cars aren’t yellow and I can breathe at least half the time ūüôā¬† I still got a few things accomplished and some things started and my week went a little something like this:

¬†A discovery that I liked this book.¬† bookWhew!¬† I finally got through this book.¬† Usually, I can get through a book this size in a¬†couple of sittings¬†(if it grabs my attention and nothing is on TV, LOL) But this book took 10 times longer to get through.¬† What’s to blame?

The first couple of hundred pages was¬†chock full of¬†medical, scientific and historical fact and jargon.¬† If you are the professorial type¬† I see you loving it.¬†But I’m not and I don’t. ¬†I kind of ¬†liken¬†the beginning of the book ¬†to The Big Bang Theory that has been stripped of humor and quirkiness. ¬†And then you have to take in account that the author is a History Professor.¬† I gave me a melatonin effect. Zzzzzzzz…..

But¬†when I reached¬†chapter 22 (I think)¬†the book¬†became so fast paced and exciting.¬† And I think that the reason the beginning was so dry, is because the plot is so extremely complicated.¬†And I am certain that if I skipped over the first part that I would not have understood a thing.¬† I thought about tossing the book aside and giving up, but I’m glad I didn’t and ended up loving the rest of the book!

This book contains just about all things paranormal with a little time travel thrown in at the end.  I am now looking forward to Book #2, can you believe it?  Here is an overview of the book.

Deborah Harkness, wherever you are, I so owe you an apology because even though the beginning was rocky, this was a great read ūüôāCinderella

¬†¬†I wanted to read something not quite as heavy so I¬†checked this book out from the library.¬† And I’m really hoping that this book is funny.¬† Going by the jacket it is promising. The name of the book is The Cinderella Pact and it is written by Sarah Strohmeyer.¬† Here is an overview of the book.


I also practiced a little witchdoctor’n or am I a medicine woman?






I wanted centerpieces for the kitchen and the living room.¬† And after a little research, I decided on terrariums.¬† I thought they would not only be pretty, but if I managed not to kill them I can repot them in bigger pots.¬† I was really excited to make these.¬†But what was strange was David was excited too. Then I found out¬†the reason he was so excited.¬†¬†He thought, It would¬†have some kind of themed village inside, like the Hobbit or trolls….uhhhh……I have one disappointed guy on my hands.

a pepper¬† There was a little art going on, but not much as I have had a headache off and on.¬†¬† This is the red pepper and I have a yellow and green to go.¬† I also started a drawing of a dog.¬† Man, the reference is so ugly that it’s cute.¬† But as I get into the drawing, it’s starting to look kind of creepy.¬† So, I don’t know…I don’t have much time invested in it yet.¬† And it may just be too creepy to invest more time.

And last but not least, I am very glad that I come up with a new title for the posts…Diary of an Iphone..SWEET!


I hope you guys have a great weekend with big smiles and sunny skies ūüôā

Be Well and Happy!
