Fail or just my ADD ??

Posted by Hope at 1:07 AM 0 comments

It’s no secret I have ADD { I like to refer to it as OST – Oh Shiny Ting}.  I have been on medication for a few years and am amazed at the difference it makes.  However, I find myself … oh look at that car that just drove by! … still getting distracted at times.  This blog is a perfect example of my distractions!!  I really wanted to succeed at the Project 365 {taking a picture every day}, but I just can’t do it! { there I said it .. I can’t do it!}.  Soo, I am totally blaming this on my ADD Smile  It was a great plan, but I can’t stay focused to remember to take a pic everyday.  I do take a lot of pictures, but not everyday.

To “save” myself… I am going to attempt to do a weekly photo.  I had seen on a blog I read a Project 52 {there are weekly “assignment” photos to take}, I think I am going to give that a try … if I can’t find that blog again….

Wish me luck.

And… if you are reading this… thanks for putting up with my ADDness.

Book Review: Safe Harbor by Nicholas Sparks {3 of 25}

Posted by Hope at 1:02 PM 0 comments

This book is really good.  I don’t read a lot of Nicholas Sparks, but this one was great!

In this book you meet Katie, a young wife who was abused by her husband.  She escapes finally and settles in a small town.  Katie falls in love with a young man who’s wife has passed away and he has 2 small children.  You grow to love Katie and Alex and the children.  Katie makes a friend, Joe, who moves into the cottage next door.  … { I want to say soo much more, but I am afraid I am going to give away the story!}

Needless to say, I was in tears at the end of the book… and they were happy tears !!

We decided to swap the tables in the kitchen and dining.  The darker table looked much better in the dining room !

This one shouldn’t be too hard.  I love to read and have a huge list of books I want to read.  I have a Sony eReader that is full of books so I always have something to read!!  I want to try and write reviews on the books I read, of course I am not very good at writing, so we will see how it goes!

Wordpress vs Blogger ?

Posted by Hope at 1:00 PM 0 comments
I am thinking about changing to Wordpress.  I want to blog about a variety of topics and not have to have a separate blog for each to keep it organized. 

Anyone have experience with the big differences between the 2?

I am …

I saw this on another blog {of course I can’t remember which one} and thought it was a cool idea.

{I am at work today}

Outside my window... it looks cold and breezy.

I am thinking... it is Friday and my boss will be at market next week, so it may get slow.

I am thankful for... my warm jacket because it was 17 when I left for work this morning.

I am wearing... boots, jeans, and a long sleeve shirt {the boss is not in today}

I am creating... a huge pile of papers on my desk

I am going... to sleep in tomorrow

I am reading... Safe Harbor by Nicholas Sparks

I am hoping... to go to lunch soon

I am hearing... AOL radio playing from my computer

One of my favorite things... {only one ?} drinking wine with friends : it is Friday:
