Today’s To-Do List [Show and Tell Sunday]

Today’s To-Do List [Show and Tell Sunday]

After more than ten years of faithful service, my Capresso CoffeeTeam coffeemaker gave up the ghost last Monday. Because freshly-ground beans made into custom-brewed coffee is one of my favorite things from the kitchen, I’ve ordered a new one. Because I really don’t want to make daily Starbucks runs in the meantime (no, seriously, I don’t), I’ve borrowed my dad’s Keurig till it arrives. . Duly caffeinated, I put together my “to do” list for […]

Spring 2016 Bloggiesta Begins!

Spring 2016 Bloggiesta Begins!

My original to-do list was in my Bloggiesta sign-up post, but I’ll recap it here: Update my books and review links on LibraryThing, where my catalog still looks like 2015 Get acquainted with the other members of my Bookish Mastermind Group and figure out what we want from it Do at least one other mini-challenge, to be decided during the week, Since I already have a LibraryThing task on my agenda the LT challenge is a strong contender, […]

4 Things to Start Spring [Show and Tell Sunday]

4 Things to Start Spring [Show and Tell Sunday]

Happy First Day of Spring, Northern Hemisphere! The last sunset of winter, through a car window I had mistakenly thought today was also the first day of Spring Bloggiesta and had planned my starting-line post as this week’s Sunday programming. Then I actually read the calendar and realized that one’s for tomorrow, so this Show-and-Tell Sunday is spur-of-the-moment and short.   My husband Paul has been a fan of musician Loreena McKennitt for two decades, […]

Things to Do for Spring Bloggiesta

Things to Do for Spring Bloggiesta

So this happened yesterday, and I didn’t mention it here: It’s my 9th #blogiversary! No new post today, but please stop by & say hello! https://t.co/ONqn1jukIM pic.twitter.com/HgN57pCD1s — Florinda PVasquez (@florinda_3rs) March 16, 2016 I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I probably wouldn’t make much of a to-do over this particular blog birthday, and I still feel that way. That said, a blogiversary always feels like a particularly appropriate time to sit back and […]

Some Recent Online Reading [Show-and-Tell Sunday]

Some Recent Online Reading [Show-and-Tell Sunday]

The momentum of Book Blogger Appreciation Week wasn’t sustained in my blogging last week, sadly–I only got one post up and am officially behind on review-writing. I fell off the comment wagon (although I have saved some posts with the intent to comment, and may yet get to them this weekend!)   I have been doing some online reading outside some of my usual haunts, though, and wanted to share a few links with y’all […]

From the Clipboard: A Link Roundup

From the Clipboard: A Link Roundup

I’m not getting as much blog-reading time as I’d like lately, but I do have a small accumulation of links I’ve been saving to share, and I’ve decided not to hold onto them any longer–time for a link roundup post! If you’d like to get them all in a handy list instead of bookmarking this blog post, here’s the OneTab where I collected them. But before we get to the reading links, I’d like to pass […]

Holiday Faves: A Christmas (Tree) Story

Holiday Faves: A Christmas (Tree) Story

I was originally going to make this a Wordless Wednesday post, but since today’s prompt for #AMonthofFaves is Tue. | Dec. 15 – Favorite Holiday Festivities – show off your favorite ornaments, home decor, place to go, holiday drinks, holiday eats, holiday themed reads I thought I’d flesh it out a little more and join in the fun! We spent this Sunday afternoon getting the house decorated…which, quite honestly, is mostly just the tree, but I do save a few […]

Thankfully Fabulous Friday, And What Comes Next

Thankfully Fabulous Friday, And What Comes Next

I’m not officially participating in Jenn’s Thankfully Reading Weekend–although I will be very thankful for any reading time I get this weekend!–but today’s post comes via her and Michelle. Michelle asks what makes today a Fabulous Friday. Well, the fact I slept way past 5 AM and am writing this post while still in bad certainly helps, but it’s mostly because of this thing that happened yesterday:  The walker is something new that came home […]

A Musical Memory, City by City

A Musical Memory, City by City

This was previously published on The List App, and inspired by a song that came up in my husband’s iTunes playlist while we were in the car one evening. If you recognize where it comes from, you might remember the Reagan Years. PLACES WHERE THE HEART OF ROCK AND ROLL WAS STILL BEATING, CIRCA 1984 New York, New York  LA–Hollywood and the Sunset Strip D.C.

Show-and-Tell Sunday: Not Much of Either!

Show-and-Tell Sunday: Not Much of Either!

My one-week-at-a-time approach toNaBloPoMo has worked for 22 days, but this may be the week it falls apart. Last week was a crazy-busy one for work–meetings, producing reports, redesigning other reports–and a rotten one for reading. I’m close to the end of three different books, but haven’t managed to make enough reading time to actually finish any of them…and even if I did get there in the next day or two, I’m not seeing much […]
