Not a Kindle Kind of Gal

Sunday, August 29, 2010

I love reading books so thought I would purchase the Kindle, knowing how compact it was and how I could down load a book anytime, anywhere seemed so convenient. I have to say it works great and does everything it says it does. But I miss my books!

I don't know maybe its just me but reading books with the Kindle is just a little impersonal.  I want the actual book with the colorful cover to sit on my coffee table. You don't know how many times I have mentioned to a friend that I am reading a great book,  the sad thing is I can't share it with them because its saved on the Kindle.

Now don't get me wrong I am not saying I hate the Kindle because I don't. It does have its good qualities. When I am having one of those days that I just want some quiet time and head to the pool or to get a peddie. I am able to sit back and relax and the person next to me does not try to start a conversation about what I think of the book I am reading.

Do you think the Kindle is for you?


Beating The Heat

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

This week sure has been a scorcher! Today the temperature read 112 degrees.  Hot days like this in California are a sure sign of wild fire, heat exhaustion, and some people even say earthquakes.

Please remember these hot days could be damaging to your health so here are a few survival tips: 
  • Drink Plenty of water it is very important to stay hydrated
  • Never leave a child or pet in your car even if you just have to run into the store for a second
  • If you have a pet make sure they always have fresh water 
  • Feel over heated take a cool bath or shower 
  • Try not to over exert yourself outside, its best to do your outside work in the early morning when its cool
  • snack of frozen treats like Popsicles, or frozen grapes
  • Check out your local cool centers

   Hoping all my Cali friends are staying cool! If you have any tips on how to beat the heat let us know.

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

I have not fallen off the face of the earth. The past few months have been bumpy but I am now feeling great and back to the day to day grind!!! Its been so long that I have felt this wonderful, its like I am on the top of the world.

I want to thank all my friends and family for being so understanding in my time of need, if it wasn’t for them I am not sure how I would have gotten through it all. 

I also want to thank Thias over at housenine for designing my new blog. I love it and can’t wait to start posting again!!!!
