Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

Passing Time With A Chronic Illness

When you have a chronic illness (or two, or three) sometimes you find yourself with some down time. Not necessarily because you chose this, but because your body decided for you. This is when it helps to have a hobby (or two, or three) to occupy yourself with. Ah, the flare. Every chronic illness has these days. You may find yourself holed up in the bathroom, flat on your back in bed, or huddled under a blanket on the couch. Flares…

August Book Haul

August Book Haul

It’s time once again for my monthly book haul post! All blurbs are from Goodreads. Clicking on the title will take you to Amazon, where you can purchase the book if you wish. (The last book is only available from the author.) These are not affiliate links. This month I only chose one book from Book of the Month. And it was finally a book I think I might actually read sooner rather than later. The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne…

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

The “What Cats Do” Book Tag

If there are two things you should know about me by now, it’s that I love cats and I love books! And as a blogger, there’s nothing like a good book tag to have fun with when the rest of my brain isn’t working. A tag that combines cats and books is a rare treat! Thank you to Holly at Nut Free Nerd for this tag! Note: clicking on the book titles will take you to Amazon if you are interested…

The Book Titles Tag

The Book Titles Tag

What a fun tag! I found this one by Eden at Thrice Read. The idea is to answer the question with the title of a book. I decided to include books I’ve read as well as books on my TBR. 1. Title that’s the story of your life  Life Disrupted 2. Title that describes your perfect weekend  The Hiding Place 3. Title of an adventure you’d like to go on

How I Choose My Books Tag

How I Choose My Books Tag

It’s hard to find a decent book tag out there that doesn’t make me want to cringe. Which is why I am so happy to have found this one! This is a book tag I picked up from Stephanie at Adventures of a Bibliophile and was originally created by Jenn at Thrice Read. Thanks for the creative ideas, ladies! Find a book on your shelves with a blue cover. What made you pick up that book in the first place? How…

Share Your World: July 17, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What is your favorite cheese? As my husband’s family hails from Wisconsin, we have an entire drawer of our refrigerator devoted solely to cheese. And when I say drawer, I mean the extra drawer in between the French doors of the fridge and the pullout freezer, so it’s as wide as the…

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

The Mid Year Book Freakout Tag

I saw this tag over at Jacquie’s blog, Rattle the Stars, and decided to participate! Thanks for your inspirational post, Jacquie! ? (Like, a month ago, but hey!) I guess since it’s the middle of July, we are indeed more than halfway through 2017 already. Mind blown. Given that I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands, I’ve made it a goal to read a lot this year. It’s going pretty well so far, so let’s see what I’ve…

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! How do you like to spend a rainy day? Strangely enough, today is a rare (as of late) rainy day! Which makes me so happy because I honestly prefer rainy days to sunny ones; it’s the migraineur in me. As I don’t work anymore, one day is not any different from the…

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

It’s July; What Am I Reading?

I have a reading problem. It’s amazing the number of ways that statement could be interpreted… I mean…   (And yes, those are my TBR shelves…or at least two of the three…but the third one is really just a single cube shelf…) But no, what I really mean is, I have this problem where I can’t ever be reading just one book at once. The only exception is if I happen to pick up a book that is so good…

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What goal are you working on now? Your goal can be something fun or extremely serious. Have fun with this question. Trying to live as normal a life as possible given my chronic illnesses. It’s become more of a challenge as time goes on. I hate the term “new normal” because there’s…
