Treat everyday as a new adventure

Perplexed, Procrastinating, and Peeved!

This was originally supposed to be titled;  Wrapping up 2012, But the last couple of months of 2012 have found me,  Perplexed, Procrastinating, and Peeved at myself for procrastinating! Go figure. 🙂 So to wrap up 2012, I want to thank all of my wonderful followers and commentators! These were my top four (I was #1 🙂 )

And I also want to thank Emily for giving me these wonderful Blogger awards! Now there weren’t any specific rules posted with them and it is so hard to nominate other blogs, because I love all the blogs I follow, or I wouldn’t follow them! So to all the blogs I follow and that follow me; I think you all deserve these wonderful awards.

Now as to my new year… I don’t make new year’s resolutions, but I do tend to make to-do lists, which include, cleaning, organizing, and getting rid of stuff!  Santa Clause brought me, “The Wind Through The Keyhole” by Stephen King. It is a story, within a story, within a story. Interesting concept for writing a book and he pulled it off wonderfully! I read the about part and it said he is an author of over 50 best selling books, so I found a list of all his books online and printed it up and…Organized them all in order as to when they were published! I have way too much free time on my hands! LOL

My Stephen King Collection!

No I don’t have them all, but I think my collection is pretty impressive, don’t you?

Okay now on to a new year! I think by now you all know the top 3 things about me.

And one is, I’m a horoscope junkie 🙂 Here are 2 that I found impressive, and so me!

TUESDAY, JAN 1, 2013

The first day of a New Year has arrived – and this day was made for you. “Out with the old and in with the new,” is the slogan for you. Take a few moments to reflect on all you have done in the past year, and then reach out to embrace all that you are about to do. New beginnings or renewal is what a 1-Day is all about. So start planning that new project or venture that you have been mulling over, and take the opportunity to put your thoughts into well-conceived actions.

Daily Numeroscope: One
FRIDAY, JAN 4, 2013
This is the day to sit down and plot out your course of action. By doing this, you will fine-tune your competitive edge. As ambitious as you may be, One, when it’s a 4-Day, having a game plan established can be the key to your success. After you have completed the tasks at hand, you will be far better prepared to take on new projects and challenges. Get organized, and plan your strategy first thing.

I am doing what I never thought I’d be doing, and that is working on too many projects at once 🙂

Here’s my list of what I am working on.

Chris’ Journey Turning Different Corners– finish writing books 2 and 3. Book 4 has been written, but needs to go through the editing process, but there’s no hurry on that one yet.

Judged by the cover is going through the editing process now.

For The Love of a ‘Cuda has been started.

The Reincarnations of Amber, which is a 5 book series, and all 5 books do have the beginnings and endings written. It’s just the middles that I have been procrastinating on. 🙂

I had thought of participating in a challenge to read 100 books in 2013, which I know I could do, but decided I have enough on my plate as it is. If you would like to try the challenge, find it here; http://www.bookchickcity.com/2012/12/details-sign-up-bccs-100-books-in-a-year-reading-challenge-2013.html

Okay, well that wraps up 2012 and gives you a peek into 2013. I wish each and every one of you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!
