I love these ducks. I first saw them on March when they were little ducklings following their momma around. Everyday I walked to work I looked forward to checking up on them. They are now almost fully grown and I worry they might move on. I know circle of life. But I hope at least on stays to continue the cycle as they bring a smile to my face everyday! :)

There is something addictive about these books. They are pure fluff and at some points utterly ridiculous but I find that I have to keep reading. I intended to just read the first one as a break from the heave reading I had been doing but when I finished one I immediately started on two... then I finished two tonight and had to start 3 Nd am already 45% done. It helps that the are already on my kindle so it takes no effort to get the next one but still something addictive. It's like the authors find a way with words that act as a drug on us and we have to just keep reading. Very interesting.... Oh well back to reading :)

|My new centerpieces :) Also you can see my new teal chairs in the background. Which for some reason came out very blue but they are actually a nice teal color|
|View of new table, side table, and new way of organizing the living room!|
|Our new end table!|
|New fixtures for the door! I also got new knobs for all the cabinets! :)|
It has been pretty entertaining and while a lot of hard work it is very satisfying work! We almost finished our fence this weekend and we would have finished but we bought all the paint from Home Depot and have to wait until Thursday until they get the next shipment! We put in our new ceiling fan (one that doesn't try and decapitate my husband!), and new knobs which make the space look to much better now that we have gotten all the gold out! I also went a bit crazy at Home Goods and got these great centerpieces for our new table! And to top it off we bought these fantastic teal chairs for the counter bar area! It finally feels like us and I feel at home now!
We just have one final piece in the main room and that is removing the hideous wallpaper! Once that happens we will have completed one whole room! Next project will be to finish outside and then move on to our bedroom! :)

I love this gadget - which side note every time I hear the word gadget I want to start singing Part of your world from the little mermaid! My husband thinks I'm crazy but this gadget is wonderful! It makes the percent scoop for cookies and for ice cream! Two of my favorites! What could be better than that!

The sun is shining, the streets are less crowded, and things just feel good! I saw the cutest little bunny today eating an orange that had fallen. And then later in a creek there was a group of ducks swimming and playing! So adorable! I would have taken a picture but my phone was all I had on me and it didn't come out well. Oh well! It was even a beautiful clear day and I could see the mountains! It was a great sight! These are the days when I truly appreciate where I live and remind myself why I walk (besides the obvious of being healthy!).

I read fast. I am often doubted on how fast I read and when I was talking to a friend about goals they said I should have a goal on reading. I wasn't planning on doing this but then they said they doubted I could actually read this amount and that it would be impossible. Well I am never one to back away from a challenge so I agreed to make it a goal! I will also start tracking the books I read to show that I have been reading. I will also blog about each one to prove I read it as friends are terrible and think I lie to them about actually reading - which is just silly because what would be the point! But it sounds like a fun challenge and I look forward to it :)
And of course to start off I am reading a Dance with Dragons, which is a 1,000 page book (which I feel should really count for more than one)!.
