Where have I gone?!

Goodness it feels like a long time since I’ve updated my blog. So much for my original idea of having a digital scrapbook!

Well in chronological order, this is what I’ve been up to:

  1. June 20- June 25 – I visited my mommy and her sweetie husband in South Carolina. Wonderful little vacation. Relaxing was my word for it :-D
  2. June 29 – A Derecho hit our area. What’s a Derecho? Wikipedia says it “is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line windstorm that is associated with a fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms. ” What do I call it?? Simply put – an ass kicker of a storm. See:

We lost power Friday night and it returned Tuesday night. I distinctly remember during the Snowcopolypse of 2010, enjoying it a little. Jermaine and I were walking around wearing five sweaters and we played Trivial Pursuit. Sure, it got old but at least the first day was fun. This storm? Not a bit of it was fun because very hot days followed. Jermaine and I had just gone grocery shopping Friday night and we were mad as hell when we had to throw away a majority of our fridge.

3. So yes. It’s been very very hot too. I know many prefer heat over cold but I do not. I haven’t had much energy lately to eat much less update projects here or review books. This smiley, actually, sums up how I’ve been dealing with the heat


But since the last entry, I have completed two socks:

And I’m absolutely giddy about this pair I’m working on now:

Herringbone Rib Socks

On the book side of things, there has been A LOT read, which has led me to wonder if I want to review Every. Single. Book.

Books I’ve finished since last book review: (Some of these might have already been read since June 12)

Finished 5/13 Finished 5/20 Finished 6/1 Finished 6/5

Finished 6/22

Finished 6/23 Finished 6/29 Finished 7/24

So Book Bloggers – Question for you – Do you review every book you read? Why? If not, what makes you want to review a book and what makes you just skip it? As I delve more into reviewing books, it would be interesting to see what others do.

    The back end of my blog is littered with half-written book reviews. (I think the count for this year’s incomplete reviews is approaching ten — about a quarter of the books read to date in 2012.) I intend to review every single book, but routinely fail. One blogger I read has solved this problem in part by doing a two-sentence summary/response to books she doesn’t have time/interest in reviewing full out for one reason or another.
