"K" mug

Yes, I caved, and bought the "k" mug from Hobby least it was on sale! It's a small, cheap, simple thing, but it makes me a little happier today.

In other news, February's ALMOST OVER! What?? Wow, that went fast. Though in times it seemed to be dragging, it flew by. I remember in January, when all the changing started, I thought it would be even slower to go through time expecting and wondering what to expect. Truthfully, it has felt long, and stressful, and crazy sometimes, but minutes seem to keep marching on in their (seemingly) never-ending-parade through the universe. Things have been out of the ordinary this year, this month, and I think I'm beginning to believe my best friend may be right: we should ban February from the calendar. (Well, except the birthdays of those we love. 'Cuz we still want them around. Other than that, though, it's outta here!) It seems to bring nothing but crazy situations, random people (in her case, not mine), insane outcomes, etc. It's not been boring, I can assure you.

Crazy *ahem* times.

Now, as I ponder all that will/may/could come in the next month (or 3, or 8), I am feeling overwhelmed. So, I plan to go home with my "K" mug, drink some tea, watch some Gilmore Girls, work on a cross stitch project, and perhaps read. Wow. Now I'm overwhelmed with my plans for relaxing! "I think I need a break. A little break? Okay. Whew!"

Time to Read...

I love to read.

I think that's why I like to write... but reading is better 'cuz I can just dive in; I don't have to create the environment to dive into... ;)

That being said, I'm finding it harder and harder to find things to read - new things, and good, not junk.

Currently, I'm reading:
1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (again), by J. K. Rowling
2. The Lord of the Rings, Return of the King (again), by J. R. R Tolkein
3. The Noticer, by Andy Andrews
4. The Principle of the Path, by Andy Stanley

I have waiting on my shelf:
1. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, by Susanna Clarke
2. Simple Church, by Thom S. Rainer & Eric Geiger
3. Stay Mad for Life, by Jim Cramer (I've actually started this one, but have some re-reading to do...)
4. Sixpence House, by Paul Collins

However, I NEED MORE IDEAS!! Some of these are non-fiction (which is good, but can't always hold my attention very long in a day) and I need more - either fiction or non: encouraging or biographical or just plain fun. I don't do mysteries very well (which won't surprise you if you know me), but some are good, so they're not totally off the table.

Comment, leave suggestions, help me out! :)

It came. It conquered.

I loved it.

Truth: I love snow.

Serious thoughts.

Read this.

Ponder it.
It means a lot, even if you haven't read what it's talking about - I haven't, but I still get it, it's message is still clear.

That's the important part. The message. Don't let it just wash past you. Think about it. Evaluate yourself, how you act, how you judge yourself, how you spend your time.

Serious thoughts, folks. Serious business.
