Sweet Links

This week was a pretty good week and included seeing Ender’s Game as well as a hockey game all while battling the Polar Vortex of Doom.  It’s supposed to be another snowy, sub-zero weekend, so it looks like I’ll be stuck inside for the most part.

Chances are “they’d” be singing a different tune. Whether you call it vanity, shallowness, superficiality, the truth is we all need fashion to get through […]

2014 Reading List

I think I’m coming down with something or else I’ve become somebody’s punching bag.  Oh, the delights of flu season.  While I’ve been puttering about the last couple of days, I’ve been thinking about books.  I read quite a few books last year, but there were some I wanted to read but didn’t.  These are […]

Downton Abbey is one of my favorite TV shows.  The British period drama is a feast for the eyes featuring exquisite costumes and gorgeous locations. Series 4 is finally airing in the U.S., and the first episode has me excited to see the rest of the season.  If you don’t follow the show, there is […]
