Random Thoughts From This Week

HELLO to all my new followers! :D It's so nice to have you here and to meet you!

Okay. Let's let the random Friday begin.:)

1. I read and finished a book by an awesome writer. It's not out yet, I was just beta reading, BUT I can't wait for it to get published. It was excellent. I loved it. (Uh ... by the way, Renee, write me something else. Like right now. ;)

2. I'm getting used to dropping my son off at school every day. My 4 year old cried a few times this week because he was gone all day. She kept saying, "I don't know what to do." Sad day. But she's doing better. As long as there are princesses and pet shops, she's good.

3. I have tomatoes taking over my garden. I don't even like tomatoes, but I do use them to make salsa. Mmmm... salsa. I skip the chunky stuff and go straight for the sauce. My hubby loves the chunky stuff. We compliment each other so well. ;)

4. I'm at 32000 words on my WIP. Slow progress this week, but that's okay. Hopefully I'll do better next week!

5. I'm addicted to Pinterest. Yes. Yes, I am. So many great ideas for decorating, gifts, etc.

Examples...

I would love a secret door that led to my writing cave. No one would ever find me! Bwah ha ha ha!
Uh ... I'm in love with this. I want to marry it.
Do you use pinterest? Anything exciting happen this week? Have a great weekend!! :D

I'd happily take some of those tomatoes from you... :)

I want to read a Renee book!

Jen said...

I want these bookshelves! What a great idea!

Ruth Josse said...

Hmm. Low word count. Pinterest. Connection? ;-) Ha!

I love that book bed! Surrounded by books sounds like a good way to go to sleep.

Jessica R. Patch said...

I've never heard of pinterest...uh oh. And at this point, I'd give my left foot for a man cave period! :)

Notice I didn't say arm. Must. Write.

Stephanie McGee said...

I got back to writing this week, which was exciting for me. I moved at the end of last week so the last couple weeks haven't been great for writing. Slowly getting back into the groove. Want to finish in September.

I've heard the term thrown around but I've never actually looked for what it was or meant where pinterest is concerned.

Reece said...

You really need to meet my wife. She's also a pinterest addict and decorating fiend. And judging from the pictures you posted, you probably have similar tastes too!

Katie Dodge said...

Oh dear! I've been sucked into the Pinterest world. All thanks to my good friend, Chantele! I really don't need one more thing to spend my time on, but oh, it's fun. And how fabulous is that writers cave!

Jordan McCollum said...

I love Pinterest! What's your user ID? (Mine is MamaBlogga.)

I don't care for tomatoes, either, but I do like salsa. Crazy, huh? I won our ward salsa contest last year. The secret: lime. Mm.

M.J. Fifield said...

I've heard of Pinterest but haven't used it yet. It sounds awesome though.

I too am in love with that second picture.

Jenny S. Morris said...

I want to secret door! Oh, and the bed in the books. Love it.

Bess Weatherby said...

Love the secret door! What's pint rest?

Kristin Baker Przybyla said...

I want to marry that stuff too! We'll fight over it. ;) What's Pinterest? Some of my friends have posted stuff from it, but I'm still hopelessly behind, as usual.

Jeigh said...

My sister invited me to Pinterest but I haven't accepted yet because I know I'm going to end up wasting tons of time there. Ack!

anonymeet said...

Pinterest is cool. Major time suck, though. Like, black hole of time sucks that you cannot get out of . . .

For me anyway.

Cristina said...

OMG THAT DOOR!!!
I want that door!
I want it!

Rebecca Kiel said...

Love those pics! I would never envision a door like that in my house, but my husband would and I'd go along and he would be right. Garden tomatoes. Snacked on three this morning! Love 'em.

Steph Sinkhorn said...

OMG those bookshelves/nooks are amazing.

Mel Fowler said...

I have never even heard about pinterest...

Are the my little pet shop really worth it? I have a 3 1/2 year old and she needs a new toy.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Michelle Davidson Argyle I need to use those tomatoes quick or they'll go bad! :P Hopefully I can get some salsa done this weekend. Or the next, since this one is too busy! :)
@Jen Aren't they amazing? I would love them.
@Ruth Josse Uh ... yes. You caught me. Pinterest = No writing. ;)
@Jessica R. Patch LOL! You crack me up. Left foot instead of left arm. Love it.
@Stephanie McGee Yay for getting back into the groove! I'm glad your move went well. Moving is never fun.
@Reece I'd love to meet someone else that is addicted to pinterest! And if she does like those pictures, she has great taste! I'm sure we'd get along great!
@Katie Dodge You know you love it. :P
@Jordan McCollum I found you on there! :D Lime, huh? Sounds delish!
@M.J. Fifield Seriously. In love. :)
@Jenny S. Morris Wouldn't a secret door be so awesome? All I need is a big old house and I can make all the secret rooms I want! :D
@Bess Weatherby It's a site with tons of design and decorating tutorials and great ideas for homemade gifts, things for kids, etc. I. Love. It. :) Thanks for stopping by! :D
@Kristin Baker Przybyla Rock Paper Scissors! :D It's a site with decorating and homemade tutorials and stuff for kids and recipes and stuff. It's awesome!
@Jeigh Yes. It is a time waster, but a good one. He he. :)
@anonymeet For me too. Seriously. :)
@Cristina I know, right?! I love the color too! *drool*
@Rebecca Kiel I would love a door like that, but in a new house. Maybe I should move... ;)
@Steph Sinkhorn I know, right? Love them!
@Mel Fowler My daughter LOVES The Littlest Pet Shops. She's 4 and can't get enough of them. She also likes the little polly pocket Disney princess's. The ones with the clothes you can change them into and stuff. She plays with them every day. :)

Angie said...

Mmmm. Garden tomatoes. I haven't heard of pinterest before. Guess I'll have to check it out.

Abby said...

Oh my gosh - I didn't even know about pinterest, but I LOVE the secret door and the awesome bed/couch/thingy! I want it - I want it! I think it is a must when I finally get to build my own house one day.

Glad the little one is getting used to your son being gone. I think that has been part of Paisley's problem this week. Adjustment can be hard. And I think you are rocking your WIP!

Maggie said...

I'm also at 32k with no progress this week. But school starts next week, so I hope to get back in the swing of things.

Angie Cothran said...

I try and stay away from Pinterest, because I can tell it will be trouble for me. Love your random thoughts.

Jenna Cooper said...

Oh my goodness. That secret entrance--perfect!! And the book nook looks like heaven!

Heidi Tighe said...

Pinterest rocks! It's got so many incredible ideas.

One of the things I do is find images of things or settings or people that appear in my stories and pin them to a "creative inspiration" board. Then when I'm writing, I sometimes keep it open and it helps me keep the feel of the milieu or scene in mind. I LOVE it!

kirstenlopresti said...

I keep hearing about Pinterest, but I haven't tried it yet. Great work on your WIP! I'm glad your making progress. I'm jealous of all your tomatoes. Mine are still green. It's September, I know. I guess I should give up on them, but for some reason I keep watering them.

Jessie Humphries said...

Pinterest??? What the H? Never heard of it, but you bet I'm about to google it.

Samantha said...

Whoa! I love those pictures! Would you be willing to support polygamy so I can marry it too?

:)

Sarah Pearson said...

Those pictures are fabulous.
Princesses and pet shops, what a great view of the world :-)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Angie It's awesome! :D
@Abby It's addicting, Abby. Seriously.
@Maggie I hate it when I don't get anything done on my book. But the next few weeks look good, so I think I'll get a few more thousand words in. Crossing my fingers!
@Angie Cothran I definitely should have stayed away! LOL :)
@Jenna Cooper I know, right? I would LOVE to have both in my house someday!
@Heidi Tighe I have a board that says "Writing Inspiration!" I love it! :D
@kirstenlopresti My green ones are just barely turning red. It took forever! :P
@Jessie Humphries It's awesome. So many cute cute ideas! I hope you don't get too addicted! ;)
@Samantha LOL!! Totally! ;)
@Sarah Pearson I know, right? I wish I could be happy just playing with princesses and pet shops all day. He he. :)

Shallee said...

I've heard so many people talk about Pinterest, but I've never tried it. I might be tempted, though...

Carol Riggs said...

Pinterest looks like a cool site! (I blipped over there for a minute.) I love the book nook and secret room photos! Very neat. :)

Gail Shepherd said...

Wow, what gorgeous rooms these are. How could a writer fail to be inspired in this setting?

Jolene Perry said...

Ranee Clark??

Cause I've read for her, and I LOVE her books :D
