Wandering Wednesday – Have a Kitty Instead

No picture today, but that’s okay because this super cute kitty is to blame.

Sleepy Kitty

Sleepy Kitty

His name is Korben. Yes, our other cat is named Leeloo.

He is 8 weeks old and is hard to take pictures of when he isn’t sleeping. His favorite toy is a little alligator puppy toy that our dog had defluffed, and a crinkly tube he can run through. He also really wants to play with his big sister and brother, but they are still unsure of him. XD

Wandering Wednesday – The Calm Before The Storm

When we went to watch the sunrise during our Caribbean vacation, I used that time to also take some pics of the pool area. We were so used to it being full of people drinking and being loud, that it was strange to see it so quiet and peaceful looking.



I would have preferred it looked like this the whole time, but I guess that’s why we hung around the beach most of the time. XD


Wandering Wednesday – Balconies Around The World

As I was looking through pictures, I realized that I have a tendency to take pictures from balconies of where I am staying, even if it wasn’t somewhere exotic. So I put together a collage of some of the more interesting shots I’ve taken! I’m trying to see if I like doing a collage like this more than just. . . a big ol’ post of pictures, let me know if you guys feel one way or another. ;) Balconies (2)  From top left:

  • Island in the Mediterranean Sea, taken from balcony in our room on a cruise
  • Our “backyard” of our bungalow in Quamea, Fiji
  • View from our room of Las Vegas
  • Our vacation apartment in Maui
  • Sunrise in Seoul, Korea
  • Sunrise in Athens, Greece from the cruise ship
  • Smoke from fires that were close to where I lived in Santa Ana
  • Winter in Berlin, Germany
  • View of St. Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy
  • Balcony of my husband’s place in Versailles, France
  • View of a soaped up fountain in Cork, Ireland
  • Overlooking the resort in the Caribbean
  • Mykonos, Greece

End of Another Month! I’m Still Here! Somehow!

Recently Updated2

So apparently it’s July – I guess it must have happened sometime between getting back from vacation and work being just absolutely crazy.

Time to check in!

  1. More writing. I’ve finished editing! Well, making the notes of the edits on the hard copy, that is. Next time – implementation! I have to say that overall, I really, really love the story so much more now, with everything that I want to include, and that’s a really cool feeling. I also got tagged in a blog tour where I chatted a bit about my writing process.
  2. More pictures. My little camera keeps on going, because I’m lazy and haven’t taken my bigger camera in to get fixed. Also why do cameras on Samsung phones suck so much of the time. :(
  3. More reading. On vacation I managed to catch up on books! I stopped reading for the rest of June, but I am excited for my next book, which is Shards of Time by Lynn Flewelling. I’m also reading a friend’s horror novel that they have submitted to their agent and just need to find a publisher for. Exciting!
  4. More German. NEIN. German is hard. Oy.
  5. More trips. I’ve been pushing to do more outings when hanging out with family or on the weekends. My husband and I went to Balboa Island together for the first time in June, and it was a really enjoyable time, though the crabs freaked me out a little. Then my family and I went to Shoreline Village in Long Beach and walked around – it’s really a cool place to people watch. July is looking to be just as busy and crazy, but I’m pushing to keep some resting time as well.


Onward to July! Everyone have a super safe Fourth of July if you are in the US. :)
