June Update Time!

Wow, it’s still hard to believe we’re already SIX MONTHS into the year. Luckily, 2018 has been a great ride so far, so I really can’t complain. (Although, to be fair, there is some occasional whining before/after work.) ๐Ÿ˜›

The biggest change for me so far in 2018 has been moving in with my boyfriend to our very first house. It was a big, scary leap, but it’s been great. We make a good team and he always inspires me to push myself toward bigger and better things, so I’ve got some fun projects/ideas I plan to really get going on in the days to come. Next month my little blog will be turning 2 years old, and I’m planning some fun stuff as this Ignited Moth begins her terrible twos. Mwahaha!

I’m having some friends over this upcoming weekend (my first non-family visitors since I moved in) for my book club’s June meeting. I can’t wait for them to come see the new house and hang out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Aaaand, speaking of books . . .

Here are the books I’ve bought so far in June:

The City of Lost Fortunes

Currently reading this one for book club. I’m enjoying it so far, I just wish I had more time to really dig into it. I was struggling to stay away the other night while reading this and wound up succumbing to sleep, thus letting my kindle slip from my grasp and bash me in the face. Not the nicest way to wake up. Profanities ensued.

A Plague of Giants

I cannot wait to get to read this one! I’ve been enjoying The Iron Druid Chronicles, so I can’t wait to read Kevin Hearne’s first big epic fantasy. He’s been great in the urban fantasy department, but I am looking forward to seeing how he really turns his brain loose for this one.

Godblind

Like the book above, this was a recent buy due to a fantastic deal pointed out to me by Cupcakes and Machetes. Not only does she make killer book suggestions, but she also points out great deals when she finds them. She’s like a fairy godmother of all things literature, waving her magic wand around and making good books appear on your TBR list. ๐Ÿ˜› I’d heard good things about this one, and with such a great deal how could I possibly pass it up?

In other news, I bought some fantastic watercolor markers just recently. I’ve gotten to tinker around with them a little bit, but I’m really looking forward to going wild and getting the hang of them soon. With some encouragement from the always-awesomeย Imperial Rebel Ork, I’ve decided to post more of my scribbles, doodles, and artsy stuff on the blog. Which, of course, made me want to get some new tools of the trade to make it happen. ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel like there are a thousand other things I could babble on about right now, but I’ll keep this brief. Just know: all is well, I’m feeling inspired, and there is plenty of fun new stuff coming to the blog in about a month. In the meantime, it’s business as per usual (AKA: random, unfiltered chaos.) ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope everyone had a great weekend! โค What’s been going on in your little corner of the world lately? Feel free to let me know what recent excitement you’ve had going on or what neat stuff you’ve been working on lately.

  1. This post oozes happiness and that is better than it oozing poop or vomit. Congrats again on the house. It makes all the difference when you live with someone who is just as awesome as you are ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Two years of blogging is ace, I just when past three years. How long have we been blogging buddies? I canโ€™t wait to see your arty awesomeness and donโ€™t forget that one day Iโ€™d like to something like a collaboration thing. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ’ฉ

    1. Haha Why, thank you! I agree, happiness is a way better thing to ooze than poop or vomit. ๐Ÿ˜›
      Good question about just how long it’s been since we became blogging buddies. Feels like a while now, but I really can’t recall an actual time frame.
      And no worries, I most certainly have not forgotten about the collaboration idea. Some of the stuff I’ve been itching to draw lately are actually your minis, so it’s definitely been on my mind. ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Getting ready to submit some poems (for better or for worse) for some poetry contests! And, counting down to the monsoon season…so dry here and using grey water to water plants. I miss living in a wetter climate! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Aw no, I left a comment on this before but I can’t see it.. wonder whether it went to your spam box..?

    So glad itโ€™s all going well in the new place with the boyfriend, definitely exciting times! Youโ€™ll have a great time when your friends come over for book club too Iโ€™m sure. Iโ€™ve made a note of the Godblind book to check it out as I think my father my quite like that one. Oooo looking forward to see what you have planned to celebrate the blogโ€™s second birthday! =]
    Take care xxxx

    1. Oh, no! I’m not sure. That’s so strange that it went all MIA. Sorry about that! D:
      And thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Book club did indeed go really well. It was a lot of fun playing hostess in the new house.
