Music, Thoughts, and Color

I know it's not Friday but I couldn't wait and it seems that I've been absent long enough that perhaps the rules are more like guidelines? Yes? I think so too.
These are favorites for me lately. Yeah, I'm one of those people who can listen to the same song on repeat over and over, all day. Are you?
Here's three of my long list of current favorites.

So while I'm working on revising Damnation and finishing Finished--needs a better name. I've been reading a lot. I think I've already logged about 20 books for this month.. But a couple of my favorites are these:

 And this idea has me thinking of a way to implement something similar in my own house.

I saw this on pinterest and its from getyourgreenon.wordpress.com I love the idea, though perhaps in another color with another word. . . I'll keep you updated.

Such a long time!

Sorry to y'all out there in blogger world, I've been MIA for a while---two months now. So here's a recap/my excuse for blog silence.

A) The CRAZIEST move I've ever had, and I've moved quite a bunch. In short, we were bunking in with relatives for two and a half weeks over thanksgiving and while I was out of town(more on that part later).

B) Thanksgiving/Christmas and a Wedding. My only other sibling got married on New Years Eve to a great guy she's dated for 7 years. It was happy, crazy, wonderful---more later too.

C) My Grand Dad on my fathers side passed. He had suffered with Cerebellar Ataxia, and more recently was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

But now, I recommit to a semi-regular blog presence. To review, I blog on books, writing, authors I admire, music I like, occasionally home decor, cooking, family stuff, and gardening/outdoors and travel. Pretty much, if it interests me I'll throw in on.

Since I've been absent I thought I'd start with a book giveaway.
