15 Reasons Why Every Day Is World Penguin Day

25th April 2012

Today is World Penguin Day. Sarge loves penguins.  If he had a spirit animal, a brother or a higher power, they would all be penguins.  They are all penguins. I have only just recently established that he loves me more than penguins.  Here are some reasons why that may be the greatest compliment I could ever receive. 15. When we first started dating, he gave me Death and the Penguin.  He called it Required Reading, and said if I didn’t…

How Are You Doing?

20th April 2012

I recently read Fifteen Ways To Make Your Blog Irresistible over at Broadside. I have decided to take each of Caitlin’s points/questions and apply them to my own blog. Is your blog overly personal?  I don’t think so.  More personal than I originally had in mind, though.  Without navel-gazing, I would hope.  There is a difference between my blog and my journal.  When I first started, I envisaged a personal public blog, and I think I’m still there.  I planned to…

And so, my birthday dinner was also what we liked to call the In-laws Summit 2012.  (Trust me, I have done braver things.  Like eat cheese in the presence of my future husband.)

The Essentials

8th April 2012

This is what my Sunday looks like.  Books, popcorn and bed.  Bliss.  (The coffee is just out of shot.) My book:  The Shape of Water (I have a new Cop-crush.) Sarge’s book:  The Body Snatchers (Which I must read at some point this month.  The book-group says so.) Back to it.  Happy weekend, all!    …
