A Random MishMash of Life..

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.” – Stephen King

Wow, it has been awhile since I made an appearance over here. There is really no reason for it other than I have been “busy”. I feel like you are as busy as you want to be; you can make time for the things you want to be doing. Lately, I just haven’t been feeling the whole blogging thing. Maybe it is because it was the end of summer, or because I just kept putting it off. I once read “the longer you go between blogging, the less you have to blog about”. So true.

Let’s have a quick catch up sesh shall we?

//1. My mom and I went out a lot the past few weeks to take pictures. Everywhere from by the lake, to the abandoned Drive In, to a Farmers Market, and a Church.

//2. We are coming to the end of the renovations – finally! So lately I have been doing a lot of DIY’s and other things which make my body feel like crap for the next few days. Pictures will come when everything is complete. 2 days ago I tiled for 12 hours, at this point I don’t believe my knees and shins will every fully recover.

//3. Jamie started playing Lacrosse again after a 3 week break between seasons.

//4. It was officially fall for me on September 2, when I had the Pumpkin Spice FRAP from Starbucks. I really hate the latte.

//5. Speaking of Starbucks. I finally received my Gold Card. I am officially a somebody.

//6. I am so pumped it’s officially fall (in my mind at least). I love fall. I love scarves. I love the colours changing. I love the coolER weather – I don’t like cold though let’s be real.

//7. I have been binge reading. I love reading.

//8. In my spare time I find myself at grocery stores, convenience stores, drug stores, rummaging through bins of Coke bottles on the hunt for “Julia”. I have so far, found 2. There seems to be an abundance of “James” though. I see it, I buy it, I drink it, I worry about  the effects later.

Really that has been all I have been up to!!

  1. omg! you hate pumpkin spice lattes!?!? say it ain’t so! i have been struggling to find my next good book, i need a trip to the book store or to the library or something cause I’m craving a binge reading session myself.

    • I know! I am so weird…… I love going to the book store, scouting out some books and then I will get them for my Kindle. When I was at Chapters (our Barns & Noble) the girl asked if I needed any help, she recommended a bunch and then I kept putting the books back and just making a list on my phone. I explained I was genuinely interested but I purchase the Ebooks for my kindle. She kind of laughed at me, as I was spending time there, and then going home to get the book for the ereader which they won’t get any money from since it’s an amazon product… Oops.

    • Did Ben just throw out a non-bitter comment? Where HAVE I been? Are we still expecting you for Thanksgiving this year, its October 13th.. We still have your empty seat from last year.

  2. I’ve felt the same way about blogging lately! It’s weird… I really wanna get back in the groove of things but just can’t seem to bring myself to! I love pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. I love fall as well, I’m just resisting the transition because i am DREADING winter. Just, NO to snow.

    • I know, that is the only thing I hate about fall – winter comes next. All that snow they are getting in Calgary scares the hell out of me. Stay in Calgary and please don’t move east
