And Then There Were None

So tonight's bookclub was the one to pick all our books for the next year and one of the ones I brought was chosen. How fun. I'll be hosting that one, but it's not until spring. The book is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. It's been many a year since I've read it and it's the only one of hers I've read, but I thought it time for a re-visit. Once I get the list of this years picks emailed to me I'll post it.

Well, I think I will TRY and do this blog thing. We'll have to see. I'm set up now tho so maybe I'll get there. :)

First, I'm crazy and rambling. Now for some concrete info - tho reading it may actually prove this first fact...

Starters: I'm a SAHM of 2 boys - a 2 and a half yr old and an almost 6mo old and DH's a dental student.

I love my PS CS3 and photo editing and I'm trying to expand the photography dept. to match that :) I have a lot of hard drive space of digital scrap booking stuff, but don't use it nearly as much as I should. Now I'm trying to give time to creating digi stuff with the CS3 skills but I'm rather lazy about it... I wonder if I'll be lazy about blogging too... Hmm. Okay, maybe I'm not lazy, I just don't get how the other digi scrapper SAHM's (or the few Dads!) out there manage all they do! With only about 2 hours a day on the computer, it's awfully hard to do all the things you want to!

I love to read, and for not being all that big a fantasy reader (I really don't do sci-fi) my biggest reading obsessions happen to be fantasy. But who can say no to Harry Potter? My profile is actually me sandwiched between Melissa Anelli and John Noe from Leaky at the HP7 pre-release party for those of you other fabulous dorks out there who know what I'm talking about! Don't worry, I love the Muggle boys and Laura too. :)
Love Melanie Rawn's works obsessively enough that some years back I actually created giant family trees of her two big worlds. Way too many hours put in there!
Tamora Pierce first got me way back in 4th grade tho with Alanna and I've followed Tammy thru the years. Nothing like a good clean fun read to take you back.
Otherwise, I love my Jane Austin :) Allan Folsom's first book Day After Tomorrow (nothing to do with the movie) was really good. Political subterfuge, espionage, etc are always good, and I love me some good Historical Fiction.

College football, with college basketball a close second, must be the best of sports entertainment.

One last bit: give me nature that's GREEN. Mmm, I just love it.

Okay, that's enough little factoids for you. Maybe I'll come back later and post some of my digi work - can you say FREEBIE? Maybe. Gotta decide if I'm serious enough about this - suppose I could give it a shot tho... Hmm :)
