Day 6 of 30 Days Hath November is perfect for me.
Before Lily was born I was a huge reader. I love it. I usually had a book with me. I’d read at lunch in the work kitchen, I’d read in the doctor waiting room, I’d read anywhere and everywhere. Well as just about any Mom will tell you I sort of gave up reading anything but board books once Lily was born. I missed it so much. A month or two ago Waldo downloaded a e-reader app for his phone and told me about it, I still didn’t think it’s be right for me. Then my sister Jolene told me she was reading “The Help” and it was great. I asked Waldo to help set me up with it and I read it at every opportunity. I had that book read in less then a week. After that I read the whole series that True Blood was based on. 11 book in probably 3 week. My blog suffered, I tried no to let Lily suffer but she probably did a little. I couldn’t stop. Even thought I didn’t love the last 2 books I had to read at every opportunity. I was so sad when the series was over and didn’t know what to read next.
Waldo read the series A Song of Ice and Fire a few years ago and loved it. He was so happy when Game of Thrones came to TV and we watched every Sunday and both loved the show. So now I’m reading A Game of Throne. Since I liked the TV show and Waldo loved the series I’m going to read it through, but it’s a very long book and I’m having trouble making myself finish it. I know how a lot of the stuff turns out from the show and being that it’s the first in a series it’s a lot of background and a slow read. Waldo ways the other books in the series are better.
For day 5 we are looking back on three years ago today.
Three years ago my life was very different. Waldo and I were living in NW Montana, I was working at a Credit Union (that I loved) and I was 7 months pregnant. I just looked it up and my baby shower was on November 9th.
It is hard to remember a time that Lily wasn’t a part of our daily life. I can’t even remember what we did with all of our time. I guess everyone says that and it’s so true.
Today for 30 Days Hath November Désirée wants to know something I never leave the house without.
I know it’s not very unique, but I never leave the house without my phone. Waldo and I got smart phones a year ago and our lives have never been the same. I always had my phone with me before, but now it’s sort of my life, like lots of people these days.
I also always have lip balm with me. I have no problem admitting that I’m totally addicted to lip balm. I like a lot of different ones, but for now I’m stuck on Burt’s Bees ultra conditioning.
Today we are doing three inspirational quotes for So Fawn’s Second Annual 30 Days Hath November.
All Nature wears one universal grin.
Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Harriet Van Horne
Happiness depends upon ourselves.
I thought all of these were very nice and quite inspirational. I’m not normally a quotes type person, but if I were I think these would be some of my favorites.
The lovely Désirée Fawn of So Fawned is doing her Second Annual 30 Days Hath November. It sounds like so much fun that I’m playing along. For Day 1 we are doing a self-portrait.
I quit wearing makeup on a daily basis once I quit working outside the house, so here I am in my natural glory.
