Monday's Beginnings (113)

So, it's Monday.  I'm really starting to dread Monday's anymore as I have to go back to work...  So I have a mixed drink here with me and thought I'd try something new, a Vlog.  Yes, I finally ventured out to try this.

Please, I felt a little funny like I was talking to my self and all, so I stumbled a little bit.  And the dogs! Oh my... I just want to say I'm sorry. ;)  And I wanted to keep it short and sweet as I can be winded some times.  But if I do these in the future I'll try to get better at sharing.

Received:  My necklace... Cemetery Cat Designs. Psynde does such wonderful designs!

Guest Post here by Dina James.  Oh, and there is an international Giveaway there!

Oh, I forgot about my Want List... I only added 3 books this week. Sorry, I've been slacking.  I think it's that I know the holidays are coming and trying to not spend much money. Ha!

So, how does the week look for you?  Hope you have a wonderful week!

And a video for you..... What song do I pick this week?  How about a little Shakira? I Absolutely LOVE this song.  I love it!  I love several lines.  Two of which:
I won't back down becuase lifes already bit me.
Scars remind me...
I won't cry, I'm to young to die...

My dog freaked out over the sound of your dogs playing with the squeaky toy. Hee!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Skyla - Hee hee! Well, the dogs are getting along. ;D We just got home shortly before I did this and they where all wired up. They even bumped the desk in their running. At least they weren't barking, as they usually are. :) Thank you!

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Love the squeaking! LOL I can't let the boy have stuff like that or it will be dead in short order. Either that or the mal will take it and covet it!

Love the necklace! So pretty!

Can't wait to see the new review. And for your son I can imagine... Aw mom! That's homework! :)

I always talk to myself. No I don't! Yes, I do! No, I don't... Oh yea... just don't argue, you'll never win! LOL

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Melissa (Books&Things) - I'm glad it was just the squeaky toy. They usually get barking and grumbling at each other, and being big dogs sound vicious. ;D Glad you like the necklace, she does beautiful jewlery. And yes, for my son... that is homework, so he really doesn't want to do it. ;D LOL! Thank you!!

I love that your dogs made it onto the vlog! Even if we didn't get to see them, their squeaking and shaking made your video even cuter. And I also liked hearing your voice after reading your words all this time!

I've been thinking about doing a video blog like this but I am not gutsy enough. Kudos to you!! I really enjoy putting a face/voice to the person behind the blog, if that makes sense.

Your week looks productive! I'm not sure how my reading will be this week. I've been kind of ADHD with reading recently. I'll start a book and then my mood will switch and I'll start another and keep flitting like that. I hope to finish at least two books this week. We'll see how that goes. It all depends on how the baby does (if she's attitudy I get NO reading done) and how my cancer biopsy stuff turns out. If it's bad, I'll probably crawl in a hole for a few days.... hopefully it all works out well.

I really enjoyed watching your Vlog and I hope you'll make more of them. And that's a lovely necklace.

I have to listen to it when I get home :)

Only 3 books! O_O The horror ;)

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Oh Melissa. You are brave. I'm still pretty terrified of doing a vlog. Maybe I'll try one in another life.

Beautiful necklace!

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

StephanieD - lol. Thank you! I'm sure Sheba will make an appearance one day as she always is at my elbow. ;D Thank you. Glad you enjoyed the vlog.

Sarah (Bookworm Blues) - It's taken me so long to make a vlog, and I was still nervous doing it. Thank you. And yes it makes sense. :) I know the feeling. Sorry to hear you've been having a rough go with books. Having a little one does put a damper on reading from time to time. Hope the week goes well for you with the little one and reading. I've been thinking about you, wondering how things where going with the cancer and all. I think you had your thyroid removed too. I just went through that about a month and a half ago, but I'm glad to say no cancer. Hope the results all are good for you. Take care!

Simcha - Thank you! So glad you enjoyed the vlog. I'm hoping now that the first one is done I might be more comfortable doing more. We'll see. :) Thank you!

Blodeuedd - Oh, hope you enjoy the vlog. :) lol.

Missie - I was so nervous to do the vlog. It wasn't much as I was scared. But maybe more in the future. Thank you!

Love the necklace! :) Is the design inspired by a book?

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Cherry - THank you! I think the necklace was inspired by Hush, Hush. Which I have not read yet, but the necklace just called to me. ;D Thank you!
