Outlandish

I’ve been (re) reading Outlander by Diana Gabalson lately. It’s slow going since it’s such a long book and I’ve been reading other books as well. I first read it about 5 or 6 years ago and I wasn’t impressed with it then. I blame it on not knowing that it was more romance than […]

On Reading and Presents.

I’ve been in a bit of a reading mania last week or so. I finished reading the Christmas Box trilogy last week; it definitely felt like I read each one in a day. The first one is definitely one you can read in a day and the others technically so. They’re a little bit longer […]

The Holidays and Writing Challenges

Apparently a couple bloggers I follow are doing blogmas this December. I’ve heard of vlogmas but not blogmas. For those in the dark, you either blog or vlog for the month of December. I don’t know how you come up with the topics but people seem to enjoy it. I haven’t read too many blog […]

We live down the road from a Christmas tree farm. Ever since we moved in, we’d been anxiously waiting for Christmas to come around so that we can pick out our own tree to put up and decorate together. I haven’t had a real tree since I was a small child, so I was excited […]

Halloween Shenanigans

How was everyone’s Halloween? Mine was decent, we finally carved a couple of pumpkins that we grew ourselves. We then got some lights to put in it. Then we put some spooky music on and watched The Village, which isn’t all that scary but had some interesting concepts to think about. My love didn’t think […]

Hallotober Tag 2020

Well, there are a bunch of rules about this tag, but since I’m stealing the tag from someone without having been tagged, I’m just going to answer the questions as I see fit. There is one rule where you have to changed question #13 to one of your own and answer it. I may or […]

15 Thoughts While Reading “On the Plain of Snakes”

This writing is tedious. Everyone has a story about the border. In fact, we’re STILL at the border. Oh yes, we’re finally going deeper into Mexico. Watch out for the cartels and the mafia and the police. In fact, don’t say their names out loud. Bribe the police if you get pulled over. Be careful! […]
