Book #7.1

I’m sorry to say that I only made it to page 17 of this book. Normally, I’m a big fan of the craft-related women’s friendship books. I loved Jennifer Chiaverini’s quilting books. However, the main character in this book is dealing with the death of her five-year old daughter. I tried to get past this, […]

Book #7

UPDATE: Read the comment! The author, Ms. Kathleen O’Brien herself, made a comment on my blog! Woo hoo! I’m so cool! Thanks, Kathleen :) Book three in the Four Seasons in Firefly Glen, The Redemption of Matthew Quinn, is another goody from Kathleen O’Brien. Some of my favorite Glenners made appearances (namely, Suzie Strickland and […]

Book #6

I just finished Plum Lovin’ by Janet Evanovich – a between the numbers Stephanie Plum book. I love all the Stephanie Plum books, and this one didn’t disappoint, except that it was remarkably short. I think it took about three hours total to read. But still, funny and ridiculous like all of Stephanie and Lula’s […]

The secret to fitness…

…must be proper motivation. I’ll be the first to admit it – I’m no runner. I’m hardly a jogger. I’m best categorized as a waddler. That’s right, it’s a sort of sad version of March of the Penguin (minus the belly slides, if I’m lucky) every day on the treadmill. But today, I ran 1.5 […]

My eCommerce teacher…

…has started a new blog and is encouraging the class’ participation. I feel like we’re taking a field trip! What a good idea – to get us off the discussion board (although, really, it’s kind of the same thing) and out into the world wide web :) Anyway, I’ve added the link to my blogroll, […]


I don’t know what a MEME is, but I like this list, so I want to participate…I’m going to skip the italicizing bit – I’d like to make my way through the whole list. Instrutions: Look at the list of books below. *Bold the ones you’ve read *Italicize the ones you want to read *Leave […]

Book #5

Well, I’ve finally finished The Masque of the Black Tulip.  Let me preface this review with some info. I listened to the first book in this series on audiobook. It was excellent – probably because the reader had an English accent, and it may have been abridged. That said, I did not enjoy this book […]


Well, I’m feeling pretty smart these days. I’ve gotten Apache and PHP loaded on my computer, and I’ve started developing my first site using Dreamweaver 8. That program is amazing. I know there are die-hard hand-coders out there, but not me. I’m all for using Dreamweaver to do the heavy lifting. Also, my super smart […]
