Blueberries

Gah! Icon decimation!

So I went into my profile and deleted LOTS of old icons and added a couple of new ones. This one is from graffitigraphic and I labeled it as the default icon, too, because I really like it. My lj is covered in blueberries now!

Fantasy reading....

In the middle of Belladonna by Anne Bishop. I finished Sebastian and went straight into Belladonna. I like the world in these books. I'm anxious to see how the upheaval is resolved!

I picked up Sebastian (I think around 2 years ago) after reading about it in violetinstincts's lj. Thanks violet! It took me a while to actually get to it but I'm happy I learned about through you.

Update? Oh... I am far behind...

OK. I suck at livejournal. RL stuff has me away from online.

Most important thing happening right now? I have been been working out to lose weight for the past year and some. Results? Oh yeah :D I have lost 65 lbs! Yep, at least I am succeeding in that. It's very hard work and I'm trying to concentrating on the work outs and cooking for myself.

I've not been watching much TV. In fact, the only shows I've followed this season were:
Supernatural
Merlin
Castle
Touch

and now:
The Listener
Continuum

If I am to start *trying* to keep up with livejournal, I'll need new icons (seriously, mine are from 2-3 years ago+)
And I need to read lots and lots of pages from friends' journals.

Alright, I hope everyone is doing well and is happy!
