Mormon Zombies?

It’s been a while since I mentioned my favorite thing, and suddenly there was a bizarre movie on TV that reminded me, zombies! Is there such a thing as a Mormon zombie? According to this little pic there is:

How Sad

I like to read. I’ve had a book list every year I’ve had the blog- until now. And it’s not like I even noticed. Why not?

Because I just read my first book of the year.

I mean, we’ve been busy with other stuff! I stopped keeping track of what was going on, but I can’t remember if I’ve read a book in a while. So maybe I’ve read one or two, but don’t remember what they were. For the sake of keeping this little space n the internet dragging for myself and the thousands of you getting discouraged each day I don’t have a fresh new post up, I’m going to try to get it going.

The new Droid I got helps. I read my first book on the plane to and from Austin. And have many more available. I also have my Park City library card, and although it’s small there has to be something in there worth checking out. (get it, check out? Nevermind.) So I’m challenging myself to start now, this late in the year, and read the average of the last three years of posted books. I’ll let you know what that is when I go do the math.

Looks like

’07 – 47

’08 – 23

’09 – 43

So that should be easy. 38 books.

Help me! Suggest things you’ve read that I should check out.



Doorless Pantry

Do I have to hide my pantry? I don’t think so, not as long as I keep it clean.

And especially when this is what I’m working with:

So we ripped the lame plastic fake wood doors down. I painted the trim and the inside support beams. And I like it. This color is my current favorite, I also painted both our railings/banisters with it (the dark grey/blue) and keep looking for what else we can use it on.

So yes, you see my cookbooks and the tons of coffee we drink, but I don’t mind.

I need floor mats/dish rags/oven mitt type accessories that match that color, keep an eye out for me.
