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.

Heather. ❀️

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˜€

Fancy Gadgets & Cheeseburgers? Check!

Current status: Layin’ in bed watchin’ Spy Kids like I’m not a 28 year old adult. πŸ‘πŸ˜‰

This is my life. These are the things I do. πŸ˜‚

Also, I want some of these gadgets!! I mean, I wanted them as a kid, but I still want them! — Why have these things not been invented yet? Someone please get on that asap! πŸ˜ƒ

Let’s be real… I need one of those fancy gadgets that miraculously produce cheeseburgers & fries out of thin air. 😍. I’ll take all the other stuff too, but my heart is set on the magic food machine!

Also, to be clear, I’d make a terrible spy. I want all these spy tools for my own personal use. Just, ya know, for reference. πŸ˜‚

If you’re still reading at this point… You’re the real MVP & I appreciate ya! 😁

Just thought I’d share a little piece of my life with you guys… Even if it is an incredibly uninteresting tidbit! 🀣

Much love, Heather!

A Lost Coke… & Memories Abound…

Curious about what I’m up to right now?

Probably not.

That’s okay.

I’m still going to tell you all about it! πŸ˜€

Singing. Writing. Drinking. — Water. It’s water, y’all.

I had a Coke, which is rare for me as it is, because I don’t drink them very often. When I do they usually come from a restaurant & are filled slap full of ice. It’s probably more ice than Coke, really, but that’s the only way I like it.

Anyway. I picked up dinner on the way home, and my lovely husband, thinking it was his drink he was finished with… dumped it down the drain. *sighs* That’s what I get for drinking something so bad for me, eh? Can’t even enjoy it!

Oh well.

As far as the singing. Love songs. Cheatin’ songs. Throwbacks I’ve been belting out for years. — I do that while I write. Music really helps with inspiration anyway. — But it also brings back memories that make me smile. For instance…

I’m listening to Sunny Sweeney’s, From a Table Away. Way, way back… years ago… after I’d just met my husband, long before he was my husband, I posted these song lyrics on Facebook…

“And I heard you tell her you still love her, so it doesn’t matter what you say, I saw it all, from a table away.”

Now for context, my husband didn’t like country music back then. He wouldn’t listen to it. He was all rock all the way. Now, though… he’s got programmed country stations all up in the car. So this was well before that.

And this was back when everything was so new, fresh, exciting, and fun. Ya know, when you’re falling in love & everything is cute.

He commented on those lyrics, saying something or other about how that was exactly why country music was trouble. πŸ˜€

I just remember grinning, thinking he was too adorable. — That’s been, goodness, nearly 9 years ago now. Holy cow. That was back in 2010. Late summer, 2010. Wow. Can’t even believe I’ve know him that long. — Time flies, y’all. — Also, just to clarify, I still think he’s adorable… just, ya know, not every single thing he says is adorable anymore. — hahahahahahaa! πŸ˜€

See!! Music… memories. They go hand in hand sometimes. Helps fuel emotion & creativity. Things that are imperative for any writer. Any person, really. πŸ˜€

As for the writing. I’m supposed to be working on novel #2… but here I am. Not doing that. Procrastinating like a boss! Is there an award for that? Can I get one? πŸ˜‰

Okay, before y’all start handing out awards I’ve definitely earned & would, likely, hang on my wall with pride, I’m going to get out of here & get to work.

Much Love,
Heather!

 

 

 

Documentaries, Shopping, & Trash Day!

Nobody asked, but I thought I’d pop on & share some random facts about myself! — You’re all very welcome! πŸ˜‚

Here goes…

1. I love documentaries! Not the preachy kind that are overly-annoying in their attempt to sway me one way or another… But the genuinely interesting kind that are educational & packed full of knowledge I’m unaware of. — I can watch them for hours on end & then I run around sharing all the things I’ve learned with my closest family & friends. Literally, I have engaged in nearly hour long text convos about things like super volcanoes, dirty rivers, & Australian wildlife. πŸ˜‚ I’m sure all my peeps are incredibly grateful! πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

2. I love a cool, overcast, drizzly, rainy day! Those are the best for opening up the blinds & laying around in pajamas all day. 🌧️❀️

3. I will eat the same foods over & over, day in & day out… With very little variety. — I’m picky, I get in weird kicks where I only want one thing all the time… *Shrugs* it’s just a thing I do. 😊

4. I grocery shop in an erratic pattern. πŸ˜‚. My mom & my husband get whiplash & shoot me dirty glares! — There’s no rhyme or reason to it… I just go all over the place, without a plan, the same isles repeatedly, accidentally missing others… Making quick abrupt turns that other people with me struggle to keep up with. πŸ˜‚. It’s so bad the lovely Publix employees are like, “Hey again!” As I speed down the same isle for the 3rd or 4th time! πŸ˜‚

5. The night before trash day I always send my husband a text before I go to bed reminding him to take the can to road in the morning! — That way he won’t forget & I won’t have to rush out the door all crazed & in a hurry, wearing God knows what kind of jammies that day, with ridiculous bed-head hair… Trying to beat the trash truck I can hear coming! All without being seen by said truck driver & my neighbors while looking so harried & frayed! πŸ˜‚ I don’t like that challenge, not one bit.

If you found you had nothing better to do & spent some time getting to know me a bit better just now… Well, I’m glad for it! — If you feel like it, drop me a random fact about yourself. If you don’t feel like it, that’s okay, too. I’m just glad you stopped by! 😁❀️

Heather!

Honeysuckles, Brownies, & Husbands!

Just a couple pictures of the honeysuckles in our backyard. My husband took these btw! I’m horrid with a camera. Y’all wouldn’t get nearly this quality without him. πŸ˜‚

So. It’s Saturday night. I’m going to kick back, relax a little. Maybe watch tv, maybe edit some more. – I have 50 pages to go… I bout got it y’all!

Might even get a brownie, too! And ice cream. What’s a brownie without ice cream? Half a treat, that’s what! πŸ˜‚

Alright! Enjoy the pics… courtesy of my lovely husband! ❀

& I’ll chat with y’all later!

  • Took the dog out.
  • Fed the birds.
  • Talked to my Mom on the phone.
  • Did nothing.
  • Watched several YouTube videos.
  • Watched several more YouTube videos.
  • Did nothing.
  • Worked out.

Okay! So I did do some stuff here & there. Made a few moves! πŸ˜‰

But it felt like a whole lot of nothing! πŸ˜‰ — I’ll strive to be twice as productive tomorrow. — Maybe. How bout we just take it one day at a time? Yeah, we’ll see how it goes! I make no promises! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
