The one thing I love the most about autumn is the leaves changing colour. And then they fall, make neat (as in awesome) piles on the grass or on paths and that’s when I get to jump around in them.

Or when I drive and see leaves dancing on the road behind my car. It always puts the biggest smile on my face.

And boy do I need things to help me smile… For the past week or so I’ve suffered dizzy spells and today they reached their peak (or so I hope).

I’m taking a few sick days off work, there’s this sleepover on Friday and I really want to be better by then (fingers crossed).

Anyhow, I got the Trespasser DLC for Dragon Age Inquisition last week (I think it was last week, but it’s probably more than that) and DUDE!

SO MUCH AWESOME! SO MUCH!

I’m playing the whole game again with another character, so I can play Trespasser again… ❤❤❤
And I cannot wait for the next game in the Dragon Age universe (so excite, so freaking excite!).

I’ve now had 4 weeks of summer holiday and if it hasn’t been raining it’s been cloudy and windy. I can’t say I’m very impressed by Swedish summer this year…

Apparently the warmth and sunshine is to come next week, but excuse me for not holding my breath.

Since this was hub’s last week of holiday I had planned to go do a few small  day trips, visiting friends and getting some me time.

Unfortunately Lady Luck hasn’t been on my or my friends side, my date yesterday injured her back and my date today had not slept at all, thus being too tired to go anywhere (it’s almost like a conspiracy, someone doesn’t want me to meet my friends!).

I’m really happy I have the interwebz though, at least my online friends have been easy to get a hold of (shoutout to my interwbz bffs, love you!).

But really… isn’t it time we invented a teleportation device to use to travel to friends living far off? I’d sure pay monies to use such a device.

On a happier note, I’ve finished my short story. The name changed a few times during writing but I ended up with: Bailey’s heart. It’ll be posted as a Saturday Scene and if my calculations are correct (hahahahaha, yeah I suck at maths) there should be enough story for five Saturdays. I even made a pretty little picture to go with.

That’s also something I’ve been doing during these rainy and gloomy weeks of summer holiday: played with my pixrl express app (it’s available for Android and iPhone both). It’s really a photo editing app, but the art you can create there is amazing, I feel super creative when mucking about with it.

Anyhow, I’m getting really bored with my hair. I want to do something with it, but not cut it all off, or colour it crazy, or morph it into feathers. Just something slightly different ya know…

Also I added mini marshmallows to my chocolate chip cookie recipe, and OH MY GOODNESS WAS IT TASTY! I might have created a new type of drug… you have try it next time you bake cookies.

I just love when you can buy daffodils at the store. They simply scream spring (in that silent way flowers scream anything)!
I’ll keep buying new ones whenever the old ones wither, this will go on until they stop selling bunches of daffodils at the grocery store.

I’ve also bought new shoes. Shoes are the best thing ever!

image

Pretty, aren’t they! My Converse were falling apart and I had thought about getting new ones, but these Dr Martin’s called to me. Buy us, buuuuy usssss! So I did. What’s a girl to do, right?

Last Saturday I posted the last part of my Swedish short story as my Saturday Scenes. I now need to get writing again… As it is now I’ve nothing to post on Saturday (there’s stuff, but I don’t know if I want to post it).

Anyway, I’m with a youth group at Laserdome tonight. It’s almost time for them to go in and shoot at each other again.

Pew pew pew pew (⬅”lasers)…

I’ve written 50 (?) words in 5 days. I think I’ll just let the Fail Fairies dance all over me this year.

At the moment (after a weekend of work and a shoulder that aches and the sads) I can’t find it in me to write. The story is there, in my head, but I don’t have the energy to make it happen right now.

How do people do this? I neither have a room of my own, or time of my own, or any of those other things (like discipline…) that I would need to succeed. I suck.

Anyhow, it’s darker than ever (like always in November) and the sads has me in its grasp. I’ll just go buy (and eat) my own weight in chocolate.

Hi.
How are you? Long time, no blog.

I don’t know why, but there hasn’t been enough time for me to sit down and write bloggy posts (or rather, I’ve not felt like it). But there’s happened a few things and I thought I’d summarize them for you:

Aprilimage
+ Had a birthday, it was goooood.
– Had a colleague go on sick leave, not good and tons of more work for us.

May
+ Lovely end of term celebrations for our kid and youth groups.
– Busting my ass to get things done on time since the workload was insane.

June
+ Summer arrived and workload lessened.image (1)
– Went to check on my moles and they stamped a hole in my face because of dodgy looking mole.

July, so far 
+ SUMMER HOLIDAY!
– Got results from biopsy and they’re going to cut away more of my face to make sure the dodgy mole isn’t anything really really bad.

So as you probably guessed; I’m quite bummed about the dodgy mole business. Not that it’s dodgy (because they know it isn’t melanoma, but maaaaybe a benign form of cancer), but because THEY’RE CUTTING MY FACE! My pretty face that’s been blessed from any form of cutting, until now.
Am I shallow or what… but it’s my face and I can be as shallow as I please.
Everyone goes on about that the surgeons know what they’re doing, it’s not gonna show, better safe than sorry, you’re lovely anyway… etc etc etc.

Guess what? I don’t give a fuck. I don’t want to walk around with a big patch on my face, nor do I want to do the whole “silicon plaster on your face for six months to a year so the scar heals nicely”. GAH!

Once Upon a Frozen North

Once Upon a Frozen North

Buuuut, on the other hand: my short story “Once Upon a Frozen North” has now been sent in, ready for publication.

I KNOW, IT’S TOTALLY UNREAL!

<— Just look at this pretty pretty art that goes with my story.

I’m also taking part in Saturday Scenes over on G+, which is a way for writers to share scenes from their work and have others respond to it. It’s great fun and I’ve found/befriended/started to stalk several great writers there.

 

Anyhow, this flabby flab of a body won’t lose any flab unless I move it about some… time to work out, though I’d rather eat cake and read (which would only add to the flab and make me miserable, I simply can’t win).

After realising (and accepting!) that my waistline will never ever ever ever go back to where it was before my kids were born, I cleaned out my wardrobe of clothes that won’t fit me anymore.

There weren’t that many items to clear out, but none the less I removed those I’ve clung on to (wishing they’d fit me again someday). Also I’m quite sure they have had some sort of sentimental value to me, though I can’t for the life of me figure out what that could be…

In addition to this I threw away a few clothes that were too old and ugly to be given away (the pretty clothes will be handed in to a second hand store). One pair of jeans got cut off into shorts, because before you know it summer’s here and you’d want to wear shorts.

We’ve had lovely weather these last few days. Sunshine and temperatures that make you believe spring is around the corner, if not here already!

I feel my soul stirring, my level of happy increasing every hour the sun is shining. I love spring!

red velvet cheesecake brownies

Nothing’s really happened.

I still miss having a laptop, all things that have to do with writing in any form has almost stopped… I used to have my laptop sitting in the kitchen and go write things when they popped into my head. Now it seems such a bother to find where I put my notebook and pen och do the swipey writing thing on my phone (GIMMI A LAPTOPPPPP!)

Anyhow… meh. I baked these Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies – they turned out DELISH! We might make them with some of the kid/youth groups. In any case, I brought some to work today and I mean to eat them!

images-1Four different people, on four different occasions have told me I look different. And when I laughingly asked them if it was a good different or a bad different they all said: “Good! Definitely a good different!”.

I haven’t got a clue on what I’ve done to look so different from before.

  • I accidentally bought a BB creme a shade darker than I previously had, but I rolled with it anyway.
  • I’ve started using bronzer to contour my face when wearing makeup, this after seeing makeup gurus on YouTube use it.
  • I have worked out daily (almost) since January 5th, thanks to 90 Days of Action, the workout program by Neila Ray I found.
  • No chocolate or other type of sweets have passed my lips since January 5th, and I’ve only had a few muffins or  cinnamon rolls (this is the woman who could eat 6 cinnamon rolls in one go!).

Could it be all those things, or is it just one of them? Or is it that I’m happier with everything in my life than I’ve been in so long?

I’m trying to decide which story to start writing next, there are a few ideas that want out… but first I’m going to have some lunch (and a painkiller because my head hurts from too much snot).

Anyhow, this will be a good year.

xoxo

keep-calm-and-call-commander-shepard-1I had thought to blog three times a week, to get some sort of continuity here.
Ah well, new plan next week.

Work’s trudging along just fine, though I have been home with Pumpkin two days this week (she has a nasty cold, poor thing).
Now we just have to hope that none of us catch it. I for one don’t have time to be ill and I really don’t have to tell you how much being ill sucks.

When it comes to writing I have managed bits and pieces during the week. Looking at older fragments and feeling I want to add/change/finish them. I have a few stories I started last autumn, mostly for the Borderlands Anthology and they have gotten a life of their own. Nice!

Tonight though I’m hoping to play through Mass Effect 3. Shepard is now back on Earth, ready to kick some Reaper butt (yes, I’m talking to you – humongous villainous synthetic-organic sentient beings!)

My workout thing that I’m doing is going alright. I’ve missed some days due to very long workdays or migraines. But the thing with this is that i can easily do two of them in one day, micro-workout.
Today for instance I have two sets that have to be done, this because I wasn’t home until 10 PM and way too tired. It’ll be interesting to see how I do today (I’ve had 3,5h sleep due to Pumpkin not sleeping at all well).

Anyhow, it’s getting late enough for me to tell the horde to go get themselves ready for bed. Me, I’ll have a cuppa tea and pass out work out.

xoxo

ImageMy little Pumpkin seems to be developing a cold. We were up a few hours last night because she couldn’t sleep and she kept sneezing the whole time (yay – good times ahead). The others have yet to have any “back to school bugs” running around in their systems (just wait for it though). I myself feel like $h|t and if this headache/sore throat and general pain all over won’t go away, I’m staying home tomorrow.

Better to stay home and rest than run the risk of getting real sick…

It’s rather obvious that I’m more than out of it today (yes, more than usually and no I won’t get your jokes today).

In a little while I’m off to my next group, and today I’m working until 9.30 pm. I hate driving (alright, maybe not hate, but I dislike it, a lot) and whenever I’m tired everyone out on the roads are morons and should be relieved of their driver licence.

Today is one of those days when I really (really really) wish I would let myself stuff my face with whatnot and more. I could easily eat two chocolate bars (Snickers would be heaven!).

Anyhow, time to get moving…

xoxo
