Addictions

Do you think I need a 12-step program?  Janet and Nick got me hooked on the app "Words with Friends" when we went camping last Thanksgiving.  No telling how many games I have played since then - with them and random opponents (I usually have several games going at once).     The big news - I finally beat Nick this week!!!!!  Yeah!!!!  One game out of dozens:)

Then I discovered "Doodle Jump".  Its another top-selling app and reminds me a little of the old "Mario" game.  Doug was about five or six when he got his first Nintendo and Mario was the big game at the time.  When he went to sleep at night, I would sit on the end of his bed and play Mario!  Sometimes I'd take a break and play Tetris.  There is also an app for Tetris!!  Yes, I have it!  PeggyW suggested I try "Cut the Rope" so it is now down-loaded to my iTouch!

In other news, I went to my first book club meeting.  This is a brand new group so I got in right at the beginning.  The first book we read was "Saving CeCe Honeycutt" by Beth Hoffman.  Excellent!!!  I have always been addicted to reading.  One of my favorite childhood memories is "library day".  Mother would take us to the Park Place Library every Monday during the summer.   In her tribute to Mother at the memorial service,  Ardell commented that Mother knew "reading children are quiet children".

A new friend and I met for lunch and fabric shopping last week.  We both are participating in the "mystery quilt" project with the quilt guild.  While at the shop, we were invited to a quilt retreat. It didn't take either one of long to say "yes"!    My project will be to finish the quilt kit I bought back when I lived on Foster Creek-maybe eight or ten years ago.    Doris and I met for lunch and discussed sewing projects among other things.  I guess that covers my sewing addiction.

Some addictions aren't so bad:)

I'm thinking you really don't have time for a job! ;). When you become addicted to Cut the Rope we'll form a club!

Remember -- we have to get older, but we don't have to grow up!

Maybe we could start a "friends of Peggy's blog" goodreads kind of thing. I just read and enjoyed Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon and My Reading Life by Pat Conroy. I can still remember the smell of the Park Place Library :) I also remember that we would get 6 books each(the max) and then read each others books. I must say you went a little overboard on the Betsy, Tacy, Tibb series. :)

It was eight books each!!! I remember that because I used to check out the whole series of Little House Books and read them in order:)
