Currently In February

Current Book(s): Let's see, I finished all 9 of the Sookie Stackhouse series in January...I'm hooked!  Great series and I highly recommend them!  Then I finished the Immortals series.  Great 1st book...second and third, not so much (at least not when targeted for a young adult audience.)  Now I've started reading the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton.  I picked this book up over a year ago and only got 2 or 3 chapters in before picking something else up (not because it was bad, but because something else came out that I really wanted to read first.)  Then I tried it on audio book this fall and got about 7 or 8 chapters in, and I've just never finished the thing which is so not like me...I always finish a book once I start it, even if it's bad.  I'm about half way through Kiss of Shadows now, and I'll continue the series from there for February's reading list.  Oh!  and the next Anita Blake series book, Flirt, comes out tomorrow!  (That will definitely interrupt the Merry series again!)  

Current Playlist: My hubby bought the Avatar soundtrack.  I love it as long as I'm in the mood for instrumental music.  
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Reading...just can't seem to get my nose out of the pages!
Current Color:  Royal Purple

Current Drink:  Coke...completely failing at my goal of giving it up for breakfast!
Current Food: Napoli's Pizza: Stromboli is De-lish!
Current Favorite Show: I'm gonna go with a movie for this one and say Avatar.

Current Wishlist:  I'd really like a nook eReader!

Current Needs: Same as last month...For the weather to warm up so I can start Spring planting already!
Current Triumphs: I fixed the keyless entry to my suburban!  Yay!
Current Bane(s) of my Existence: Time...or lack thereof!
Current Celebrity Crush: Hmmm... My hubby and I have been watching True Blood, so I'll say Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.

Current Indulgence:  Little Debbies Valentine Cakes! mm,mm,mm!

Current #1 Blessing: Lots to be thankful for this month, but #1 is family!
Current Slang or Saying:  No slang this month, but saying goes something like this:  "Don't cut your plants back until March 1st, which is Houston's average last frost date."  "Yes, I know their ugly, but you'll do more harm than good by cutting them back now."  I must say this 50 times a day (or, at least it feels like it!)
Current Outfit: Winter gardener clothing: Brown fleece jacket, teal blue T-Shirt and jeans.
Current Excitement:  Two of my friends had their babies this weekend!

Grace Elaine arrived on Friday and she is just precious!  Congrats to Sarah, Andrew and Katie!

And Lexi Lee arrived last night!  Congrats to Bryan, Misti, Isaiah, and Samuel!

I can't wait to meet both of them in person!

Current Mood: Excited and Hopeful!

Current Link: This couple was on TV earlier this week after a man's fiance started posting things that he said in his sleep.  Even though some of the quotes are foul mouthed, most of them are hilarious! 

Happy February!


  1. I'm the manager of the music department at the Barnes & Noble in Jacksonville, NC. So lovely to see that you want to buy one of our Nooks, they're so awesome :D Way better than a Kindle, I've had a chance to play around with them a bit.
    Into the vampire novels, eh? :) I haven't tried Harris' or Hamilton's stuff yet. I've read a few other vampire series' though...

    Neat post, nice to learn some stuff about you! :)

  2. Kiaora. Nice to see you chose Anna Paquin. She of course is a fellow Kiwi. She was great friends with my daughter growing up in Wellington where we all used to live.
