Finished another Novel-Crank-

I finished my book.
It was 537 pages and I finished it in 3 hours. Don't let the page numbers fool you. It was written in poetry form.
The book was about a teen girl who was your average good teenage girl. She then got a taste of drugs. She also created an alter ego to help justify what she was doing. I rate this book a 9. I can understand this character. No I have never had a problem with drugs or alcohol but I can understand how it could suck you in.

These are the types of books my girls enjoy reading. I love that we have the same taste in books as they can be pricey. I don't mind as much as I know at least 3 of us are going to read the same book.

I took my dad for his blood work today. I got him a few groceries, picked up his prescriptions and went to the bank for him.
He was making me laugh. Good thing I understand his humor or else I would be embarrassed of his comments to others LOL.

I took Heather for her training today. It was about 2 hours (quite a bit of that time waiting). Unfortunately Heather didn't get the job, but Ashley did.
As I was in my jeep waiting (reading and crocheting) a guy backed into me. I was just relaxing, reading my book when I felt the jeep move. The guy just stayed there, so I honked at him. Then he pulled up. I walked out to check out my jeep, it was fine, not even a scratch. The guy stayed in his car, he didn't even come out to apologise. I'm under 5 feet tall and petite. I guess I looked intimidating to him LOL.

I made a tiny mini book for my daughters friend. I plan on making a couple more and doing a tutorial on them, since quite a few of you have asked for one. I will try and do that tomorrow.

What have you done today to make you feel proud?
1. Took my dad out
2. Made banana bread
3. Read a book, I think I am good with my book a month challenge I have for myself. I may even be ahead of the game.
4. Delegated chores to my girls. I usually just do them myself.

Hope you had a crafty Tuesday.



  1. The book sounds interesting. I'll add it to my amazon wishlist to try and read at some point.

    I'm thinking of making banana/blueberry bread on Thursday before I get my hair colored.

    The only thing I did today was dishes and talk to some Mormons. Now I'm researching something called The Mormon Murders.

  2. I'm glad both you and your jeep are okay.

  3. Did some put putting in the house, read on my book and cheered up a friend. That is about it. Oh sewed a dolly body does that count?
    Going to help Mom tomorrow. She threw her back out again. UGH poor thing.

  4. Glad that you and the jeep okay, typical guy thing not apologising for being in the wrong!
    Book sound interesting too and you are a fast reader! i have started on the envelope flap book but may not post until after 18th July as I am going to our teams quarterly training, I have been asked to demo a technique and make samples and I am using this as one of my samples. thanks for sharing this on your video I love it!

  5. Looking forward to your tutorial Tracy, it's baking hot here in the UK, so we're not doing alot today apart from trying to keep cool.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  6. No-one likes the books I like to read, no-one likes the books my youngest daughter likes to read either *LOL* - however my husband and oldest daughter have the same tastes in books (which is crap in my opinion *rofl*) so we at least save money there!

  7. Glad you and your Jeep are okay! Being the only woman in this house, nobody tends to read what I read!

  8. Hi Tracy...I think it was just one of those days. Your the 2nd person that I know that got hit today, glad your both ok.

  9. Grrr...what is it with cowards when they hit you and then pretend like nothing happened? I've had that happen before, too.

    The book sounds intriguing!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
