What I Read in July

Well I definitely broke my two book a month trend, finally. I read seven books in July, and I didn't really read during my week off. Honestly, this is kind of blowing my mind. I cannot remember the last time as an adult I read this many books. I'm attributing it to two factors, I've … Continue reading What I Read in July

What I Read in May

Once again I am continuing the 2022 trend of reading two books a month, I would really like to get up to at least 4 books a month, but I accumulated a decent amount of hobbies over the pandemic; reading, blogging, needlepointing, that all take time, but now that social stuff is happening again, it's … Continue reading What I Read in May

What I Read in April

I really thought April would be the month I broke my 2 books per month average that I've been running so far this year, when I did read I enjoyed all the books I was reading and was getting through them quickly, but taking the time to sit down and read seemed impossible. Watching TV … Continue reading What I Read in April

What I Read in February

I had big reading plans for February, and then I worked 180 hours over 13 days (aka half the month in February) and basically only worked and slept for the second half of the month. So I didn't really read anything for half the month, which kind of worked against my goals. Although I feel … Continue reading What I Read in February

Best Books of 2021

I think this will be the very last round up post of 2021, it's getting past the appropriate time for them. I have been putting it off because I don't really know how to pick a favourite book or books. I don't have a very objective reviewing system, and I have never been very good … Continue reading Best Books of 2021

Influenced Vol. 1

I thought it would be fun to do a round up of the things that I have been influenced into buying. Originally, I was thinking about doing it as a 2021 round-up, but as I am very much someone who could be described as "very online", being influenced is part of that, although I think … Continue reading Influenced Vol. 1

What I Read in December

So it turns out I wasn't in a reading rut, I was approaching burn out and exhaustion and all I needed was a good break and a few good nights sleep to want to and be able to read again. This is a gorgeous book and will be the start of my coffee table stack. … Continue reading What I Read in December

What I Read in November

I am definitely still in a bit of a reading rut. I read just one book in September, nothing in October (to the point where I had a post planned for early November about being in a reading rut, but then I read a book in a day (a snow day) and I thought I … Continue reading What I Read in November

Gift Guide for Difficult Dads

I don't know about your dad, but I do know that I find all the dad gift guides I always see never having anything my dad would actually want on them. My dad does not barbecue, is not really into whisky/whiskey or any other drink, he's not techie, he is incredibly fussy about his clothes, … Continue reading Gift Guide for Difficult Dads

Sunday Scroll

This is a discussion for another day, but this is a lot harder to keep up with as my life gets busier. I know we joke about this, with the "I know my friends are doing better when they are almost never posting on social media" memes and tweets. But it is hard to prioritize … Continue reading Sunday Scroll
