Off the Blog, Blogging News and Updates:
The bookshelf is done and now I think I might need another one since I filled this one completely. It was so easy to put together and I feel like I want another one to put on the other wall but I will wait until we get more books or a bigger house. 🙂 This week was rather quiet, I was able to do a little visiting and also finished up a few blog posts. I did a bunch of covers for the pre-made group and also worked on other design stuff.
On Friday I watched a Friday the 13th Marathon on Encore….backwards. YES, they played 7 movies in reverse order. So if you never saw it you now knew what happened at the end of the one before. It was the stupidest marathon I ever watched. I did still watch it but it was so annoying. At night I was watching Friday the 13th part 2 which was before part 1 and I forgot it was on Encore and not regular TV. My daughter walked into the kitchen and sat down to play on her computer. I glanced over at the TV and realized the girl was naked. I might have yelled…OMG, DON’T LOOK AT THE TV THERE IS A NAKED LADY! She yells, OMG, what are you watching? I yelled “JUST DON’T LOOK!” I totally forgot. She sat with her back to the TV and every time someone was naked I just said “Don’t look naked people” Do you know I didn’t realize how many times someone is naked in those movies. She kept saying “Why is everyone always naked in these movies?!?” I said that is what movies were like in the 80’s just never realized it. lol
Saturday we went Apple Picking, almost like a really quick trip. I plan to get pumpkins later in the month since I don’t want them to get rotten. I grabbed a lot of apples so I am hoping to try to make an apple pie. I never made one, if you have a good recipe let me know or email it to me. I am trying to find a good recipe.
For Christmas (yes, I said Christmas) I was planning to make some homemade vanilla extract for the family. I am going to look for vanilla beans this week so I can order the jars to put them in. It takes about 5 to 6 weeks to set so I want to get a start on it so they will be ready. I found out how to make cinnamon extract also. I really want to start making some of my own stuff, I just never know where to start. I need to find a book or just a good recipe to make jelly, jams, preserves or butters.
Blogging is going good, nothing to tell, still a little behind but I am trying to catch up but don’t forget Can you read a series in a Month sign ups are still open. The Challenge starts November 1st.
My daughter has a game today so I might not be around until later! 🙂

Bookish News and What I grabbed
I’m slumping again and I am hoping the Dewey Read-a-thon next weekend will help me because I can’t believe how much I am NOT reading! 🙁 I also didn’t grab anything this week. I am still reading the same two books.
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
