This is what I'm reading at the moment. City of Ashes, the sequel to City of Bones. There are five books in the series. This series is fantasy fiction. C is currently on book five and D on book four of this series. Does anyone do that? Read the same books as their kids. I think it gives us something to talk about and also lets me know what their reading/learning about. kwim. I know it's geared towards their age group and I'm okay with that at least if something happens we can talk about it and I can give them answers... It's a pretty decent series so far. The movie ummm well it was very different from the book but doesn't that often happen? Some other popular series I have read with them are The Hunger Games and Divergent series. We have a rule. You read the book before you see the movie. This helps with teens and keeps them reading. They all love to read and I love that.
I'm also currently reading The Time Keeper, by Mitch Albom. It's very good so far. It is inspirational fiction.

Seriously this is what's happening outside right at this moment. Everyone's done with the weather here. We are lucky however that we aren't getting the storm that's crippling eastern Can today... You know it's bad when the whole city shuts down... When the warmer weather finally arrives I suspect there will be a little bit of spring fever in the air. I can't wait. Bring on the rain and the dog poop smell if that means we get to look at flowers blossoming soon.
It's time to get back at this whole blogging thing. I've missed it. For real. Other things have taken over my life. I feel like there isn't enough time in the day for everything. I miss scrapbooking too. I need to make an effort to get back at it. I recently left facebook and I can't even begin to explain how much of a great choice it was for me. I'm not going to get into all the details because really who cares. I left, I'm happy, end of conversation. I'm thinking that I need to document our lives a little better now though. That's part of why I started blogging in the first place. So here's to a fresh start. I'm thinking of switching it up a bit, take some ideas I've seen on other blog's like random days where I just post something well, random. What I'm reading, kids updates, scrapbook stuff, pinterest fav's of the week, fashion find's, ect.
