I must not have explained things clearly or the post is way down in the line.
I realize the last six weeks of posts haven’t really had a lot of Southern Vampire Mysteries or True Blood content but that’s because those of you who are die hards already follow ESL and other news and information feeds so I don’t repost them here since it just makes my weeding through the other interesting posts take a lot longer when everyone reposts the same thing.
There’s also the fact I haven’t written much worth reading, story wise, since I finished The Other Road Home. I have written it just hasn’t been worthy of publishing.
I am one of those authors who doesn’t publish anything on a story until it is completed on my computer. I learned that lesson with my second story, Life and Death, nearly 2 1/2 years ago although I should have learned it earlier considering I can’t stand it when a good story gets left by the wayside, never to be completed.
Any way, there will be a lot more alternate interest posts in the future because I do have other interests than just Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman as some of you may have figured out in the last little while.
I am also hoping to do more challenges of both the story variety and blog challenges so I can try to keep my brain sharp and maybe come up with an idea or two for a story which will actually get finished.
I am thankful for each one of my followers and do enjoy showing you other sides of me than just the SVM universe, I hop you all are enjoying it as well.
As strange as it may seem I’m actually excited about this. The glockenspiel was there when we moved here in 1975 and I always enjoyed listening to it when it played the full story out.
I have just discovered Cooking With a Wallflower and I think I might be in love!
Her recipes look absolutely wonderful! The pictures are colourful and the recipes look really simple so she’s getting a shout out from me:).
Step by step print and photo instructions always make a recipe easier to follow, lol.
Enjoy, I know I’m going to.
Today at work we had the second annual employee appreciation BBQ. The weather wasn’t the nicest since it was downright cold and very windy but still it was a fairly good time. The union president was even there.
The union has always supported the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada in the wonderful work they do but this year Kraus decided they were going to get in on the volunteer wagon as well.
They chose to partner with Habitat for Humanity and honestly I don’t think I could think of a better fit for a flooring company than a volunteer organization that helps those who are down on their luck with their housing situations.
For the first time in a very long time I’m proud to say I work for Kraus Carpets.
They are finally pulling themselves up by their boot straps and getting out in the community, recognizing all the hard work their employees have put into their products and I, at least, am a lot happier with my job now than I can ever remember being.
The proverbial icing on the cake today was that I got a 25 year service award which includes a day off with pay. The day off has to be used by December 31 and they have to make sure they will have enough workers to get the product out by the end of the day but I don’t see an issue with that at all :).
Kudos to Kraus Carpets and UFCW 175 and 633.

Ain’t that the truth!
What’s that saying? Cry and you cry alone, laugh and the whole world laughs with you?
Have you ever noticed though that our moods are almost as contagious as the common cold?
If you’re in a bad mood then those around you will catch it and be in a bad mood too.
If you’re in a good mood then those around you are too.
Curious, isn’t it?
Carly Knobloch wrote a wonderful post about how much time is too much phone time in the bedroom and I thought I would give my response here.
I vote that any time is too much time. My phone only makes it into the bedroom if it’s during the day and I’m barricading myself in because I’m a grouchy bear or I’m expecting an emergency phone call from family.
My phone stays in the living room on my table/file cabinet right along with my laptop, tablet and iPod. None of that makes it to the bedroom since I much prefer to fall asleep to absolute quiet with no distractions in the form of things that can light up my dark room, ding or otherwise do things to disturb me during my downtime.
I do not use it as an alarm clock. It’s way too tantalizing to check email or reply to texts when I pick it up in order to check the time. I have one of those old fashioned gadgets called an alarm clock. You know, that thing that makes an extremely annoying buzzing sound at the proscribed time each morning. It is even newfangled enough to have a second alarm so I don’t have to fuss around with it in the dark to set it so my boyfriend will get up at the correct time several hours after I get up.
I may be the black sheep here but some days I regret ever getting a cell phone and internet.
Yes, a cell phone has allowed my family to reach me no matter what but that is a good thing AND a bad thing. There are times when I just want to escape without leaving home, which I do manage but I shouldn’t have to hide from everyone after I hide my phone and other electronic gadgets in order to do so. Gone are the days where if I wasn’t near my landline they would have to call back or hope I checked the call display to find out that they called and call them back. Gone are the days where I could enjoy a less stressful day with a good book at the beach because they always manage to find me even if they don’t know me personally or whether they are there physically or not.
What say my readers? How much time is too much phone time in the bedroom?
