Book Challenge: September

Ok so technically I did read an entire book this month. It was an ebook, but it was still a book. So goal completed. 

The other paperback book that I was trying to read I still barely got into. I once again will be using it towards next month because I know I won’t be finishing before the end of the day.

If I were to live in any decade

If you could live in any decade, which one would you choose and why?

It would have to be a technology driven one. I think everything is made easier with technology. Plus technology helps you to be healthy / in ways to help your health in so many ways. Really though, there is so much that you can use it for that makes your life so much easier. I don’t think I would be able to survive in a time where technology isn’t available the way it is. Obviously it has advanced a lot compared to when I was growing up.

As much as I would like to say a specific decade I can’t. Because I don’t have an exact decade I would like to choose at the moment.

Book Challenge: August

Ok. So on the 18th I finished my first book of the month, and started a second one. Technically I probably could and would have finished the book faster by a week or so, but I had a few days where I didn’t read a single page. So that made me take a little bit longer. I had the book 3/4 finished in about a week and a half. 

The second book I had started the night I finished the first one. Didn’t read that much that night. Ended up reading about 2/3 of the book the following day though. Then basically finished it the day after that. That was still with just over a week left in the month. 

So I decided to start another book. 

Which I couldn’t really get into at the time. And only read about 15 pages of in the rest of the month. That means it will be the book I will be trying to finish next month. 

If I was on a Classic Tv Show

If you were on a classic TV show, which one would you be on, and why?

Bewitched. I always loved that show. I think it could be fun being friends with / knowing Samantha. Especially if you knew she was a witch. It could definitely get interesting then. You would never know what was going to happen or who could show up.

My Book Challenge

Decided yesterday, that I was going to do my own book challenge. I am going to try to read at least one book a month for the rest of the year. So, with five months left this year, I have to read at least 5 books. Theoretically this is possible for me to do. I have been able to do it before.

But the question is: will I be able to finish one book in a single month?

I will blog my way through it over the next few months. Lets see if this works out.

Happy New Year! I hope everybody had a great holiday season. Mine was pretty good. How was yours?

One thing I really didn’t like was all of the snow. I am not a snow / cold weather kind of person. Cold weather + me = a bad combination. If only I could be in warmer weather year round.

Did some baking for the holidays (mostly because my mum wanted me to not because I wanted to) at the beginning of December. I made sugar cookies, shortbread, peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and brownies. Luckily she had packages for all of those so that made it easier for me to make them.

I also made a frozen holiday spice whip cream. Which was basically just 2 tsp cocoa powder; 1 tsp cinnamon; 1/2 tsp pure ground cloves; 1/2 tsp ground ginger; 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg; 1/4 cup sugar; and about 1 cup whipping cream. So first: mix the spices, cocoa powder, and sugar together. Then mix in the whipping cream. Next would be to whip the whipping cream into whip cream. Put into a freezer friendly seal-able container, and place into the freezer. Wait for it to freeze completely and Voila! Frozen holiday spice whip cream. Just as a FYI; I put the spiced whipping cream into the fridge over night to help bring out the flavors of the spices, I whipped it into the whip cream the following day. You definitely don’t need to if you don’t want to. For me the flavor was awesome, but you can adjust the amount of spices to however you want them.
