The quotable journal, and general babbling

About two weeks ago, Dorkys did a quotable Journal giveaway on her blog. And, I won. The journal arrived today. Thank you for choosing me as the winner, Dorkys! :)

Here is a link to the website where you can see the quotable journals.


Sorry there's no picture, but nobody is available to sort photos for me at the moment, since everyone is either away or busy with other things. It's the butterfly one... The same one Dorkys has.

Mam had a go at roleplaying last night. She played the rogue that Ian (a family friend) uses on the odd occasion he shows up. She decided it wasn't for her though, and left us to it after a while. But, hey, she tried. Besides, everyone has different preferences as to how they spend their time. And, I'm a firm believer in the "to each their own" philosophy.

It keeps snowing here still. But it's not settling properly, so as fast as it arrives it's gone again. That means I can still go for my walks with Kero, Willow and Wayne. I'd actually go anyway, personally, but because it's difficult for me to follow paths with my cane in the snow, nobody likes me to go, so it's just easier not to bother. That's actually the reason why I'm fed up of the snow... Because I can't go out much when it's here. If I could then I wouldn't be so ready for Spring to hurry up and arrive.

I have a load of audiobooks to listen to, but I'm not getting much of that done, because roleplaying is taking up a lot of time. I generally would listen to at least part of an audiobook in bed, before settling to sleep. But lately I either roleplay until late, then I'm too tired to stay awake long enough to listen to more than a few minutes of it, or Kelly is going to bed just a little before me and putting the TV on. When the second one happens I don't bother with the audiobook, because I wont be able to listen to it when he's watching a TV show or movie in the same room. And, no, I can't use headphones. Why? Because I sometimes fall asleep listening to the audiobook, and where I'm one of those people who tends to wriggle a lot in their sleep I could end up choking myself with the headphone wires, because I don't like the in-ear ones that easily come out of the ear on their own if you move about too much, and I don't want wireless ones... Especially since they don't really come cheap.

I think that'll do for today. . I don't think there was anything else I wanted to blog about anyway.

Enjoy whatever's left of your day... Stay warm, and stay safe! :)

I'm so happy it got there soon and that you like it! I love that shade of deep blue and the caterpillar quote on it ("Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over...it became a butterfly" or something like that)!

Congrats on winning the giveaway from Dorkys.

We had another good coating of snow when we woke up this morning and we had snow showers most of the morning. The sun came out later and it turned out to be a nice day. More snow coming tonight tho...another inch is possible for my area.

Dorkys:
Yes, it's lovely, and the quote is great! :)

AK:
If all the snow that's fallen in the past couple of days wasn't melting almost as soon as it stops falling, we'd have a good 6 inches on the ground right now... Maybe more!
