Strangeness of the "Recently Viewed" List...

While reading the online visual (addictive) disaster People of WalMart, I clicked a link to see their new book on and laughed when I saw my recently viewed books:

1. People of WalMart: Shop and Awe (this was the reason I noticed the others)
2. A Tree Grows In Brooklyn (a classic and a favorite!)
3. Pickle Pickle Pickle Juice (I hear it's a great children's book!)
4. Birthing a Better Way: 12 Secrets for Natural Childbirth 
(A friend had a link for it on their facebook page and I was curious)
5. Raising Your Spirited Child (again, on a friend's reading list)

Don't read into this list - I am NOT pregnant!! I'm just curious about what friends are reading. Only two of these (the top two) were things I looked up for myself. I just think it is a funny and random list!

Want to win some chips?

Dana, a girl I went to school with in the ye-olde days, writes a blog about her life called Lil Family Blog
She is very enterprising and has recently been having some cool contests on her blog. A lot of them are for babies and kids, which don't help me much right now, but some are cool for all types of people!  

This one looks tasty... I hope I win! Read Dana's post for the details:  click here!

(This picture is not mine. If it's yours, let me know and I'll take it down.)

The company's website:

Take a look for yourself. If you enter, please let me know (I'll get another vote!)   Good Luck!  :)

Ten Things, after a very long time.

Hello. I don't know if anyone reads this anymore, or if it's fallen off of blog-reading lists or whatnot. It appears I don't even have comments anymore, which makes me sad that such things are lost. Ah, well. C'est La Vie... or something like that. :)

So here I am, with Ten things that come to my head right now. Just text, nothing Fancy.

Ten things that I am enjoying right now.

One: The birds that are having a squwalky conversation outside my window.

Two: The quiet around me that allows me the opportunity to hear the birds.

Three: The pictures of a wonderful getaway and visit with a very dear friend.

Four: The hopeful expectancy of the volunteer plant outside yielding a pumpkin in a few months.

Five: Savoring the lack of a time restriction.

Six: The fact that I have all I need, even though I do still worry about it.

Seven: Enjoying being alone in this moment, while also looking forward to being with others.

Eight: Small accomplishments, which are better than no accomplishments at all.

Nine: Quiet. I know I said it before, but for some reason, it is resounding with me right now.

Ten: Knowing there is coffee in the pot, food in the fridge, and money in the bank.

Maybe I can start again?

Hello, Blogosphere!

It has been a tremendously long time since last I posted. A million things have happened since then, perhaps the most significant being OUR WEDDING! :)

But seriously. I will make an attempt to get this up and running again.

the (now former!) Miss President :)

(maybe I should get a new name?)
