Trying Sunday Night Chit Chat Again...........

Note that I've added some blogs to my blogroll. Laura over at I'm losing it has a non tradiitonal life and is very inspiring. Oh, and she has a booklist that makes me envious-me of the procedural mystery habit.  Over at Cash Only Living, they make my future plans look pretty  pedestrian. I'm not ready to sell all I own and hit the road for a year or two with no home base-but it sounds so tempting.

Back to the topic at hand..........awhile back, I tried to follow Carla on Sunday Night Chit Chat, , but I think I managed a whole two weeks. I'll try to get back in the groove and see how this works.  I just need a stickee on my forehead or something:

What I'm Reading:  Just finished the new James Patterson Womens Club book and ready to start Fireproof by Alex Kava (what did I tell ya)
What I'm Watching: Nothing now, the show Longmire at nine pm (who knew there was a seris of books about this guy.

Listening to:  Nothing now, show tunes earlier. Actually trying to decide if I should torture adult son and put in West Side Story.

Baking/Cooking: Baked a lemon meringue pie, cooking was kabobs on the grill and corn. Summer in texas food

Happy that I accomplished:  Happiness may not be the best phrase but I got a realtor in and know what I have to do to try and sell this house.  Also checked out some completely reasonable rentals.  On the other front, I finished a placemat and napkin set, a small quilt, and bought  a carload of book boxes today-always a risk.

Looking forward to this week:  Church dinner group on Saturday and swimming daily. Working on my house room by room and canning blueberry pie filling.

Top challenge for the week?  Oh, just deciding on the direction of my life for the next year or so.


  1. Good job looking at rentals!

    Not too heavy---just "what will I do with the rest of my life?' :>)

  2. Thanks for having me on your blog roll Barb.

  3. Loved the just what will I do with the rest of my life thought.
    You are a great writer , Barb


  4. Thanks so much from me as well for adding me to you blogroll!

    And please, please send on your recommendations for good mystery reads! I have enough on hand to keep me reading through next month, but am already getting my September list together.

  5. Baby steps have a way of turning into giant leaps - consulting a Realtor was a good place to start.

    Check out "Defending Jacob" if you like crime solving novels with a psychological twist.
