Finding Hope and Home – Supernatural ‘Into The Mystic’

Standard

I’m a huge fan of Supernatural! Loved this episode and this article is very well written; I just had to share it!

This week’s Supernatural episode, Into The Mystic (I love when Show remembers its roots and uses song titles) was one of those episodes that didn’t grab me at the very beginning and not let me catch a breath the entire time. Instead, it was a slow build, culminating in an ending scene that left me grabbing for the tissues and grinning like a fool simultaneously. Just the way I like it, Show.

Snowy Reading

It’s January and Winter finally arrived!  My old dog finally came into the house (although I had to force her, she loves the snow).  I am now trying to decide what to read next.  I have so many new titles to choose from!  I could turn it around and work on a few stories, but my heart just isn’t in it right now.

But my heart is into  books, and I have quite a list; there’s Ruby’s Choice by D.F. Jones, or Changeling by Debbie Herbert.  Then there are the more know classics that I picked up at the flea market a couple of weekends ago.  The entire When Calls The Heart Series by Janette Oake, or The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon.  I haven’t read any of these, witht the exception of Janette Oake.  I’ve read most of her series, they’re my go to for when I need some positive palette cleansing on the book front. If none of those wet my whistle I have at least 10 more stored away in my Kindle!  I’m curious to know what everybody else is reading while they’re snowed in.

When I was younger, as in before I had children, I was always looking for ways to hang out with my friends.  Slumber parties, Dinner Parties, Hang Outs, Bonfires, you name it I was there.  Then babies came and the invitations dried up.  I’ll be honest, it hurt.  I thought terrible things about myself when these childless friends stopped calling.  After wallowing in self pity for a while, I picked myself up and made a new game plan.

I’ve always been a reader with a voracious appetite.  Reading has been a hobby that has stayed with me forever and it is now responsible for where I’m at today.  Thanks to reading and the internet I discovered a vast world of wonderful authors and fellow bookworms.  It is a supportive and friendly community and the best part, the social get together are online!

My first “party” was several weeks ago.  It was a celebration of the author Katie M. John and her release of the series Beautiful Freaks.  After that it was a Fan Appreciation Party hosted by a bevy of amazing authors, including my girl crush Kate Danley.  These online parties celebrating books and their hardworking creators made me feel like I was part of something special and important.  Even better, I’ve met some amazing people.  Author AC Clarke is one of them. After meeting her at the Beautiful Freaks party, I’ve watched her Facebook adventures and wish we were BFF’s (don’t worry I’m not a stalker or anything).

Another perk to these parties, swag.  I’ve won several copies of books attending these fun shindigs and I’m very appreciative.  In fact, Ruby’s Fire, my first official blog review, was the prize I won at a release party.  I’m so happy I’ve found this community of bibliophiles and master wordsmiths.

To the aspiring writers out there slugging it out on the computer, Don’t Give Up! You absolutely matter, your work matters.  It may not seem like it now but one day, some depressed and lost soul will happen upon your work and suddenly their world will have purpose again.  Thank You to all the authors I’ve been introduced to in the last few years.  Y’all have saved me in so many ways!

So the next time you get an Event Invite on Facebook, check it out, it could lead to so many great things!

Happy Reading,images

Recent successes in your career might inspire you to throw a celebration of some kind with a few close friends, Sagittarius. You’re feeling especially positive and particularly charming at this time, and your confidence is likely to contribute to a new sense of closeness to those around you. Love and romance should also go very well. You’ve worked hard and it’s time to reward yourself. Have a successful day and an enjoyable evening.

 

So according to Horoscope.com, Day 13 of the New Year is turning out well for me.  I suppose they’re right in some capacity.  I started this blog and in doing so, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know some great Indie Authors.  I am reviewing books at a pretty rapid pace for OnlineBookClub.org and that seems to be satisfying me on an intellectual level.

My wedding business isn’t exactly booming, but compared to last year, it’s going pretty well.  I actually had to make a clause in my policy to NOT perform jail ceremonies or “proxy” marriages.  This will cost me money but I’m in it for the fun and excitement, not  the cash flow (because believe me, it’s not that lucrative in my neck of the woods.)

So if I define success in terms of personal worth and intellectual stimulation, then I am in fact, Winning.

Happy Reading!

Well, I have now had a blog for 1 week.  It’s been a mixture of fun and disappointment. I’m quite enjoying what I’ve started, it’s just a little frustrating that no one is reading it. I guess I just need to be patient.  While I’m waiting for that to happen I’ll throw a  shout out to Online Book Club.  Currently they are running a publishing contest for an indie author.  Check out the details if you’re itching to get your work published, if your idea gets enough votes then PRESTO! You’re a winner and you get to be a published author! Link is here….
