BOOKS AND BLOGGING PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!

NEW VISITORS AND OLD- WELCOME!
Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

I am spending the fourth with my family. My daughter is coming home from Kentucky, cousins in from North Carolina, my parents from Wisconsin, and a myriad of other relations already here in MN. I can't wait!
Thanks for hosting - hope you enjoy the fourth!

Beverly said...

I love that you are letting us comment to enter more than once because I don't love being the first to comment - I rarely see random.org picking one as the winning number. Thanks again for hosting - I already said I am spending the fourth with my family - but I forgot to say that my son will be with me as well - he is still in high school and living at home with me. Can't wait. Enjoy your holiday.

Something funny from my day...

When ever you need a laugh, go to Big 5 (sports store). People that work there are airheads. I called and asked if they sell airsoft gun batteries. She said "Ummm no, we sell airsoft guns and batteries."

My sister is recently divorced and just started taking some college classes at night, after working all day. To help her, I have been keeping her youngest (10 year old boy) during the week. Her teen daughters (16 and 17) are spending alot of time alone (which I don't think is good but what can I do?).

On the actual 4th of July, I will probably just hang out at home, until it is time to get my nephew again. Then we will hopefully be able to swim in the pool, if the weather cooperates and teh water is warm enough.

It will be a quiet 4th of July at my house. It will be just me and my husband and he has to work. So I will do a little grilling for the two of us and we'll watch the neighbors shot the fireworks.

Thanks for the giveaway! I'm not entirely sure what I'll be doing. Likely just grilling up some food with my Dad. We tend to keep things very simple. :)

I am celebrating the 4th early and tomorrow we are going to a BBQ at our friends' house. Hopefully I will also kick some butt in Trivial Pursuit, but not likely LOL.

We are also supposed to go to a BBQ on Sunday at my sister-in-laws house to visit with my husband's side of the family. Not sure if we are attending or not yet though :)

Unfortunately, 4th of July is not a public holiday in my country. So, I'll probably be spending the day at work and reading my tbr pile before I go to sleep

Oh don't get rid of the gorm! The form is the best! Skip the comments for the blog hops if you're going to skip one. the forms are so much easier. But we're going to the rocking awesomest parade and the most A-Mazing fireworks ever. And my kids are going in red white and blue tutus. We sort of love July 4th at our house! wilsondev(at)gmail(dot)com

My plan is to spend the 4th with my husband (yay!) and let him cook me some ribs on the grill... don't worry, he loves grilling, lol. They've banned fireworks here in TX, so we probably won't do much else since other family is out of town, lol.

Sunday the 3rd, my church is giving a musical presentation in ohonor of Independence Day. I'll be participating in that since I am in the orchestra. My brother's family will be visiting us on the 4th. They want to watch the symphony, but my dad doesn't want to do that. I do know we'll do the whole fireworks thing.
