Hello frozen world, I'm not sure if you knew this but there's a layer of snow all over you. It looks quite pretty, though I don't think these northerners would understand. You aren't really covered, just enough to look pretty in patches, make my dog slid on the deck and to keep my dad home from work. 

Oh, your here to, sorry. ;) Not much is going on, I'm just enjoying taking pictures of the snow and snuggling by our fire. 
I'm not enjoying editing. It is boring, extremely boring. I've just gotten stuck with Karen about to fall off her bike, do you know how annoying that is? =P

I'm going to go and pick out an outfit for this evening, the girls of the house are going to brave the cold and go to a game night at the house of some good friends of ours. :)

Fun Facts and words:

Hello everyone! I'm going to start every Monday posting a fun fact or word, today I'm going to post both just for fun. :)

FACT: Have you ever wondered why its so popular to have popcorn in the theater? It got started early on in movie theaters when popcorn venders would park right outside of a theater and sell it to people going inside, it made so much money eventually theaters began putting popcorn stands inside there buildings and making the profet themselves.

Cliché: A
 phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original 

 stereotype or electrotype.

I hope you enjoyed my first post of fun facts and words!

Hey guys, whats up? I was going through some old files on the computer today hoping to clear up some space and do you know what I found? Of course you don't thats why your reading this. ;D I found a goal of mine from December of 2012 to write 15.000 words in January 2013. I was hoping to finish The McNeil Adventures up. Unfortunately, it didn't happen, I think I wrote around 1.000 words before abandoning the protect. At the time 15.000 words in one month was a dizzying prospect and you would think looking back on it I would think it was a puny goal or a bad one because I couldn't keep it, but I don't look at it that way at all. I am sitting here congratulating myself for having the courage to try that (Yes, I know, I'm self-absorbed sometimes). Now I had no idea that I would go on to latter that year writing 50.000 words in 29 days, I didn't even know I was going to do it until October when Sarah said "Hey you want to do NaNoWriMo with me?" and I accepted.
Goals in general make me nerves, especially writing goals because it takes a lot of willpower from me to keep them and I don't always feel like putting all my willpower into a protect. But this year I'm going to work very hard on keeping the goals I've set for myself, including doing NaNoWriMo again. 
Do you struggle with keeping goals? 

If you actually read that not very well written ramble, Thank you!

Shalom my friends. I though I would give ya'll a update on my random life. =)

I started back up on my school today. I also started up on Piano, which my older sister is teaching me. I got requests for interviews out to five authors, I wrote several posts that needed to be writing (including this one), I wrote out my calender and I played an awesome round of Active Life Explorer on the Wii with Michael, Grace and Rebekkah. 

I have not started my editing this month like I wanted to but I have caught up on my blogging work and tomorrow I am going to hopefully start up editing on Danger in the Distance. 

Well thanks for sticking around for this very short post on my day! I'm going to go play a game of Spades with Michael and Rebekkah!

Happy new year!

This is my first post of 2014. 
This also is significant in some way. 

I didn't stay up till midnight last night like I'm sure many of you did. I treasure my sleep and hate to give it up just for a new year. =) But how am I spending my new years day? Since non of you asked I had to ask myself. ;) In answer to my own question: I'm sitting at home with Tothless, my kitten, on my lap. Most of my family has a stumic bug so I consider myself very lucky not to have it. Yet. 
Not the best day to start to the year but I'm sure it will turn out alright. 
I'm going to go edit Danger in the Distance. Its in desprate need of some help. :)
