And the Reading Continues

  To begin, Half-Priced Books is a dangerous place. Very dangerous. I dropped by because traffic was horrible, then decided I might as well look for some Louis L’Amour books I don’t already have, and then all of a sudden, I have a basket fully from all different shelves. If anyone needs a library card for my library, let me know! Ok, now back to the regular broadcasting update: Reading Challenge 2015 UPDATE A week or two ago I recapped my year of reading thus far, or at least the last month…

Things Tuesday: 09/01/2015

Tuesday, Wednesday, August, 2015, where have you gone? With so much going on, Things Tuesday will have to be two whole days late. But that’s okay because I have brought you a pretty darn good list. So let’s get things started. ONE This will make you laugh. I promise. TWO And if you appreciate the actual game of baseball (not just the entertainment!) this video will make you say, “Wow.” STRAIGHT STEAL OF HOME! Oh my, @ElvisandrusSS1: http://t.co/dLlz2o7mlV #StealAHome pic.twitter.com/qSZKALoHqq — MLB (@MLB) September 2, 2015 THREE After winning another…

Road Trip Reads

A number of good things came about on my trip to the mountains this past weekend. One of those was being getting back into another book. Last month while on vacation with my family, I lost myself in the pages of a book called “Hill Country,” written by Janice Woods Windle. I found myself more interested than usual in a book of this type. I wasn’t sure if it was actual interest or due to reading at such a high elevation. Nonetheless, this historical fiction novel lured me in and…

What a Great July

August is the best month of the year. However, I am biased since it’s my “birthday month.” What’s better than feeling pretty close to 100% sure that it will be hot enough outside to drink a cold one on my birthday, a guarantee that sits just fine with me. But to be fair, July treated me well both personally and my blog too. So with that in mind, I thought I’d be kind enough to share with y’all some highlights. Seven posts were posted: One Fish, Two Fish   ** Highest…

Things Tuesday: 07/28/2015

It’s been a little while since I did a Things Tuesday post, but I’m back now and I have a few quality, or so I think, things to share with y’all! ONE It’s been a little while since I last shared anything Aggie-related. But this will make you smile and maybe even tear up, especially if you’re an Aggie! Tom “Ike” Morris, Class of 1933, is turning 105 years old on August 1, 2015. He is the oldest living Aggie. He graduated over 82 years ago. Let that sink in.…

Things Tuesday: 07/14/2015

Knock, knock. Who’s there? The middle of July. Yep, July 15th is right around the corner, a couple of hours from now! I would say where has the time gone, but I know the answer: work, play, Aggie things, family, sleep. ONE My dear grandpa turned 82 yesterday!!! Even though I think almost daily about how much time has flown, it is accentuated when you look back on how much time has passed since various milestones. It feels like yesterday that all 100+ family and friends gathered at our house to celebrate…

Things Tuesday: 06/30/2015

Oh hey, June. Wait. Goodbye? How in the world do these months go by so fast. I’d understand it if I was jet-setting around the world every weekend, but unfortunately that is not the case. I guess splitting my time between work and play is catching up to me. Then again, maybe this is just a side-effect of growing up that I have to just learn to deal with. On to my little list of randomness on this Tuesday. You may have noticed that this is not a Twelve Things…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/16/2015

ONE 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS until Aggie football starts up again. I have plenty of things to enjoy and keep me busy this summer, but really and truly can’t wait for this coming season. TWO If you asked me which recipes I have made the most in my life, I’d have to say #1 vanilla ice cream and then #2 would have something related to breakfast, either egg bread (aka French toast), chorizo potato and egg tacos, or biscuits. Well this past Saturday, I went ahead and walked…

@ the Moment

It’s been almost two months since I updated my @ the Moment playlist, so I figured while I had the time to kill this evening I ought to try to give you a few songs for you to listen to! Headed here in a little while to a free Adam Hood show at County Line BBQ. Can’t wait! Seven Year Drought — Jamie Lin Wilson Let’s start this playlist off with a song I’ve had stuck in my head ever since I bought the CD. Mr. Tambourine — Bob Dylan…

Twelve Things Tuesday: 06/09/2015

Happy, happy Tuesday! Last week I was convinced it would be a long week after coming off of a wonderfully productive weekend at home with the family. However, it felt like right after I posted, it was Friday before I knew it! Earlier today I posted a May Favorites post of sorts. Since everyone is doing them these days, I figured I would participate as well! But on to my weekly, for the most part, post: ONE Oh Aggies. Why do I look so tired today? Maybe it had something…
