A Plethora of Thought

No theme today. Just a big ol' mess of my thoughts. There's just some days that thoughts don't come. Nothing brilliant comes to mind. It's just a pile of various things that I'm thinking about.

SQUIRREL! (Anybody ever see the movie UP?)



Yeah, squirrel is a good descriptor.

CASTLE: So, what did you think about the Castle season finale? I know most people were so glad that Castle and Beckett finally got together, but a blog post by Jenny B. Jones really said what I couldn't quite put my finger on. You can read her post HERE, if you so desire. I posted Jenny's link in Facebook and it got some Castle-watchers talking. If you write romance, you probably feel like I did - that the "getting together" was too rushed. I won't get into all the nuances here, but Jenny's post sure made me think!

WRITING: I'm still trying to work through My Book Buddy and get my plot worked out for my new story. It's slow going, mainly because I've been trying to keep up with laundry better, keep my house straighter, keep my kitchen sinks shiny, and the toilets not so gross. Yeah, some things are kind of important that way.

MOTHER'S DAY: My parents and my in-laws are coming over Sunday evening for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day. My kids...except my daughter, who is in Austin at UT...will be there. And I don't have to cook! Gotta love that. So I've been perusing Pinterest, trying to find some cute, easy craft to do for gifts. What do you think...

I Love You Frame




Family Key Chain



I need something easy that I can make tonight. :) What do you think?

WEIGHT LOSS/GAIN: I almost didn't go to Weight Watchers last night. I knew I had been bad and had eaten out way more than I should have, and was pretty sure I'd gained a few pounds. I went anyway and was surprised that I gained only 1 pound. So here's to a new week of eating well.

BLOG VACATION: I'm taking a short hiatus from blogging next week, because I am taking three days vacation and going on a writing retreat with a friend! We are going to her river house about an hour away and staying Monday through Wednesday. No internet! Just writing! I've never done this before and I am so incredibly excited!

I'll be back next Friday sharing about my exciting Writing Adventure at the river house. So have fun next week!

What fun things do you have planned for Mother's Day?

  3. Hi Sherrinda. I'm new to the blog world and want to introduce myself.

    My name is Jennifer and I live in the smallest town in Texas...OK maybe not the smallest. But like you, I dream of publishing a novel one day.

    First, I have to say that your name is so awesome! I mean you couldn't have picked a better name to appear on the cover of a book!

    Now about Castle...I just don't know how I feel about it yet. I stared at the TV long after the show went off not sure of how I felt about it.

    I'm going to have to think about it for a while and maybe watch it again.

    1. Jennifer!!! Welcome! You are so sweet to love my name. It's so...unusual. :)

      And about Castle...sigh...I have so many different feelings about it. I love it so, but I was just let down a bit. That blog post by Jenny B. Jones really said a lot of what I have been feeling, but it is still hard to articulate it.

      I'm looking forward to knowing you better!

    2. I was just sitting here with my hubby as he watched Castle on the DVR. I wasn't paying much attention because I was buried in Jody Hedlund's "The Doctor's Lady" - but all of a sudden I hear my hubby say: "It's about time!" I told him about your post today, Sherrinda, and how you felt things weren't quite right with the hook up - that maybe it went too fast and he just looked at me really funny and said: "It was four years in the making!" Then it occured to me the difference between men and women! He's just happy they finally hooked up - end of discussion. :)
