Some chit chat.

It’s a rainy weekend so I’m stuck inside reading and watching the telly. Oh darn! LOL Sitting around trying to decide which book to read got me thinking. I’ve noticed that I like to read certain types of books at different times of the year. Except for Christmas books and horror. I read those year round.

In the spring, I’m drawn to animal books and romance. In summer, I’m for some steamy or historical romance. In the fall, it’s deep thrillers and suspense. And winter sees me reading more horror and anything that involves battling harsh elements of nature.

This also got me thinking about beverages I enjoy while reading. In the spring I like the light colas such as Sprite and Ginger Ale. Summer is all about Iced Tea and yummy Sangria full of fruit. Fall will have me drinking Cider and dark Colas like Coke and Pepsi. And in the winter I enjoy hot tea and hot chocolate.

How about you? Does the change of seasons also change what you want to read and do you also change the beverages you drink?

Ever had one of those weeks where you seem to be moving in slow motion? LOL I had one. And do you know what I did about it. I had a three day weekend and pretty much did nothing but TV and reading. Talk about a reboot of energy. Friday I stayed in bed til 8 A.M. finishing a book. Then I lolled around, ate too much, took a long nap and stayed up late reading. Saturday was a repeat. Today I plan to take a dip in the pool and hit some thrift shops. Maybe I’ll find some books!

Happy Easter everyone!

Been a weird, quiet week for me. Other than work I’ve been very lazy and it feels so good. LOL

I watched this wild video on the news about a horse attacking an alligator.

I felt sorry for the poor thing, but I’m sure the horse was just protecting it’s herd. Who knows what had happened in that long grass. And it almost got a bite of the stallion.

Been binging a new show I found on Netflix called The Doctor Blake Mysteries. It’s an Australian murder mystery series with some great casting and intriguing plots. Totally hooked!

Other than that, been reading, reading, reading…..I’ve been lax on writing reviews the past week but have some good ones coming up next week. Be sure to drop by as some of them have giveaways included.

Now on to the books!

Some chit chat.

So, I’ve been sitting here watching the cursor blink for about 5 minutes, and still nothing. Been another 2 minutes and drawing a blank. I’m actually watching commercials to avoid another blank. Then….something popped into my head. Funny how something dull inspires.

I’m wondering which you like to watch more, movies or shows? Since Netflix came along I’m watching more and more shows. But I still love the movies and with On Demand and Netflix, I never have to go without. That all got me thinking about when I was young. Remember when the TV went off the air? They played the National Anthem and then nothing but static. And there were only a few channels to watch and it was black and white, no color. Now it’s 24/7 and you can watch from so many devices.

I also remember learning to use a Wordprocesser in college and thinking it was so awesome. Most kids now don’t even know what one is. And electric typewriters. Boy were they special!

So much has changed and it’s been my fortune to see it all happen. I can’t imagine ever losing all of this fabulous technology, so cross your fingers the Zombie apocalypse never happens!

This week was spring break here on the coast and I had the week off of work. It was glorious and went by too fast. I want a ground hog day where I go back and do the same week over, and over, and…..LOL

I didn’t do much of anything. Read some books.Watched some movies and shows. Stayed up late and actually slept in past 7! At least I’m well rested.

Sorry I didn’t visit a lot. Tried to stay away from the computer, though I did sneak in some time each day. I couldn’t help it. The dang thing was sitting there. Waiting for me to touch it.

Do you like a staycation where you stay at home or do you like to travel?

Did you notice? It’s my 200th Sunday post!

I have had such fun with this meme and can’t thank Kimberly enough for hosting it. I’ve met so many amazing fellow book lover’s and discovered many wonderful authors and books. It’s been a wonderful experience and I plan to keep on going.

And I got my new computer. I decided to let my computer guru dispose of my old one, but I did hang on to the hard drive, just in case. It’s taking me a bit to get the hang of this new computer. The keys are configured a bit differently and I find myself hitting the next key to the right all the time. I fixed that by moving my computer over a little bit, and doing better now. LOL It’s a Dell Inspiron and has all kinds of bells and whistles I’ll be checking out.
