Vacation… Writing… Day 17…

I actually got some writing done today. We’ve been on vacation, so I feel like that’s a good excuse for not getting much done the last few days. As far as work goes, that is. I did plenty of other things. πŸ˜‚

I did keep up with blogging though. A post a day, just like I said I’d do. Day 17! πŸ‘

Next week will return to normal, so it’ll be the same grind. Work, work, work…. more work. But until then, I’mma enjoy it.

I told y’all in yesterday’s post that my big ol’ dog whipped her head back and caught me in the chin. I told y’all it hurt, too. Just so you know… still hurts. πŸ˜‚. I have a small bruise and my jaws are sore, all the way up into my ears. Lol. I told my husband, I was like, she basically assaulted me! πŸ˜‚ — (She better be glad she’s cute and doesn’t know the first thing about malicious intent… Otherwise, well… Oh, nevermind. We all know my threats are empty when it comes to the dog. πŸ˜‚)

Anyway, I think I’m going to call it a day now. Maybe climb in bed and watch the history channel. See you all tomorrow!

Absolutely Nothin’….

I have nothin’ to say.

I’m tired. My 85lb dog just whipped her head back and caught me under the chin… I don’t know if y’all know this… but that crap hurts. So now I’m sore and I have nothing to blog about.

I may try to get a little work done later tonight, or I may not. I don’t know yet. I may just sit around and pout because I hurt now. πŸ˜‚

I think my husband is going to build us a little campfire, so that’s nice. πŸ”₯

Other than that, I’ve got nothin’. See ya tomorrow!

Here’s a little picture I took today! ❀️

Blueberry Muffins, Squirrels, & Stubborn Puppies…

I have a million things to do tonight and only a handful of hours to do them in, but I figured I’d pop on and chit chat for a few.

Random things from my day….

I ate a blueberry muffin! It was delish! Funny thing. I like blueberries. They smell good, they taste good, they’re blue… I like the color blue, but! I hate the texture of blueberries. I never eat them, okay… almost never. But I decided to try a blueberry muffin today, and it was good. The texture wasn’t quite as bad as when they’re fresh or in some desserts. So that was nice. 😊

I went to the grocery store. Publix, to be specific. Some of y’all know I could live in there. Seriously. I could. I spend hours of time strolling up and down isles while the guy in the meat department is looking at me like, this girl has walked by twenty times already, she crazy. πŸ˜‚

Here is a picture of my dog as I’m typing this post…. Refusing to look at me because she doesn’t want her picture taken. Seriously. She was looking at me until I tried to take a picture…. Then this is what I get. Manners, she has none. πŸ˜‚ — She cute, tho! 😘

I did some editing today. For about an hour or two. Nothing crazy. I’ll get plenty of writing time tomorrow though, so it’s all good. πŸ‘

I raked some leaves. That was spur of the moment. Out the kitchen window I saw a squirrel that wanted water, but the bird bath was empty, so I went out to fill it because I felt bad for the local wildlife, and somehow found myself raking up leaves around the shrubs in the backyard. 🀷

Oh yeah, I also did a load of laundry. Took it out of the dryer and folded it and everything. Go me!

So there’s a little peek into my day. You probably don’t care, but on the off chance you do, then this post was just for you! 😘

A Day In The Life…

I didn’t write today. Instead, I did laundry, reorganized the closet, vacuumed, and cleaned the bedroom and the bathrooms. Well, one of the bathrooms. The other one didn’t really need it. And that was it. Just another day in the thrilling life of Heather. 😘

The only thing I didn’t do, that needs to be done, is clean the kitchen. I may do it later tonight. If not, I’ll do it in the morning. Easy peasy.

For the time being though, I’m going to hop in the shower, and then maybe read for a little while. I’ve been rereading my Sandra Brown books and I’m several chapters into French Silk, which I originally read like five years ago. So if the dishes don’t get washed tonight, y’all know why! πŸ˜‚

I will see you all tomorrow, and with any luck, I’ll have something much more interesting to post.

Another Blog Post You Never Asked For… Pajamas & Peanut Butter…

So to kick off 2020 I thought I’d do a little blog post about myself. If you want to learn a little bit about me, read on….

My first name is Heather, last name Threatte, pronounced Threeeee-T. Trust me. I know you were wondering.

I love cold weather. Documentaries. Board games. Lemon water. Old sitcoms. Sleeping in. Starry night skies. Gardening. Dogs. Flowers. Christmas. Exercise. Sweet, not salty. Pajama shorts. Late nights. And historical romance novels.

I believe in love, kindness, and compassion above all things.

My husband is my favorite person. My mom is my best friend. And if I’m being honest, I like my dog better than most people. What can I say? She’s my little cuddle bug. ❀️

I like more peanut butter than jelly on my pb&j’s.

I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl every day of the week. (Okay, not when I’m at home writing. I have a large variety of nice, colorful pajama shorts for that!)

I can’t talk about myself without mentioning, that while my husband is my favorite person, and my Mom is my best friend, God is my favorite everything, the best of the best, and I don’t even have words for how much that defines me.

I’m shy. A little anti-social. Introverted. But I try. I try to put myself out there as often as I can. And no matter what, I’ll never stop trying.

And lastly, I just want to say, I like to eat spoon fulls of peanut butter right by themselves. — Yes, I’ve mentioned peanut butter twice already. Clearly, I like peanut butter! (And pajama shorts! They got two honorable mentions as well!)

So that’s a little bit about me. If you want to drop a few lines about yourself in the comment section down below, go for it! I’d love to learn more about you. Do you like eating peanut butter in your pajamas? Maybe! Who knows!

Until Next Time,
Heather. 😊

Area 51, Measles, & Board Games…

I’m supposed to be working right now. I’d rather talk to y’all though! πŸ˜€

What ya want to talk about? Area 51? How I got bit by like a hundred mosquitoes earlier & my husband said I look like I have the measles now? Maybe that I have not exercised yet, & I still need to? Music? Work? My obvious procrastination? Or maybe my less obvious obsession with board games? (Okay, that’s not exactly less obvious. Well, here it is. My husband would beg to differ!)

We’ll go in order!

  1. Area 51: Aliens? Maybe. I mean, I’ve seen Independence day… that was a documentary, yeah? Seems reasonable.
  2. Mosquitoes: Are those little buggers not the devils own spawn? I’d say so! I’ve got like 30 mosquito bites on just ONE leg! ONE! — Just outside, trying to talk to my Mama on the phone, and it was like attack of the swarming mosquitoes. Is that a horror film, yet? It should be. It’s a brilliant, and scarily accurate, depiction of reality.
  3. Exercise: I have not done so, yet. But I will. I’m going to work it in, just as soon as I finish up this blog post. In a moment of seriousness here, working out regularly & staying committed to it for the last year & half is one the best decisions I’ve ever made. — Hands down. No question.
  4. Music: Currently listening toΒ I’m Coming Over,Β by Chris Young. — Two thumbs up for some good ol’ country.
  5. Work: Got some work done today! — Added a new scene to novel 1, Forgiving Anna. Still have one more to add, as well as more edits. — Pray for me? Yeah. — This is not fun stuff!
  6. Procrastination: Does this really need explaining? I don’t think it does. Y’all know.
  7. Board Games: Oooo! This one is fun! I am 28 years old, but I don’t care how old you are, board games never go out of style. They are good, wholesome, family fun. And I, for one, can say with pride that my obsession means I have a closet full of board game fun waiting on my future children. — For now, my husband, as well as extended family & friends, will be the only ones subjected to the board game madness that is family fun night. Don’t like board games & you’re at my house? Pretend. — Don’t want to pretend? Get out. — Just kiddin, just kiddin! — You can stay. But you will miss out on fun & memories, and you’ll only have yourself to blame for it. πŸ˜‰

I believe that’s the end of our list. Check in with y’all later.
Love To All,
Heather. πŸ˜€

Fall, Noodles, & Free Entertainment…

I’m about to turn on a lamp, dive under my covers, and open up a book.

But before I do, I thought I’d pop in and say hi, so hi! πŸ˜€

I didn’t know what I’d say when I got here, just thought a blog post was long overdue. So here’s to making it up as I go…..

  1. My dog is absolutely adorable. I mean, she surpasses adorable, and is downright the cutest, cuddliest, fur buddy ever. She’s also snuggled up nearby, and I’d like to reiterate… cutest ever! (I’m biased, I know. Sue me! — Please don’t. No one wants to be sued. πŸ˜€ )
  2. I want a donut… but I ate them all.
  3. My neighbors were jamming out to some Latin music earlier & I feel compelled to tell you that I was in my backyard dancing like there was no tomorrow. As was my husband. — Free entertainment you guys, free entertainment!
  4. I have a pile of laundry I need to do. ——— Said laundry currently resides in a basket… where it will stay for the night. & quite possibly the next night. & the night after that…. Maybe even the night after that… *shrugs* (I can never be too sure about these things.)
  5. My husband is on xbox live & just caught my attention to tell me that someone’s username/gamer name/I don’t know what the names are called, is “Did you poop today?” —- First, why is this their name? Second, why interrupt me for that? — Husbands.
  6. It’s almost fall, y’all! I can’t wait for the first legit cold front to move through, cause y’all know South GA takes forever to cool off… and grab a hoodie, hop in the truck, roll the windows down, and hit the back roads! It’s my favorite!
  7. I just sloshed water out of my glass & onto myself AND a blanket. — Oops.
  8. In an effort to be transparent, I’d also like to tell you that I’ve run out of random things to say, and I’m now racking my brain. For something. Anything.
  9. I thought I had lazagna noodles in my pantry today, but turned out I only had spaghetti noodles. (Yes, this is the grand idea I thought of to share with you. So sorry.)
  10. & last, but not least, I’m about to re-read Cold-Hearted Rake, by Lisa Kleypas.

There’s 10 random tidbits for your entertainment! Surely not as interesting as my dancing earlier, but it’s something. πŸ˜‰

Love to all!
Heather. πŸ˜€
