Misc Monday

Hi, all!

Happy Monday!

A few MISC things going on with me: (if you're interested)

Right now, I am waist high in edits for Fiancé by Fate--which has all the outward appearance of being an April release!

Gulp

and

Woo-hoo

                                                                      **

Also, I found two cool FREE apps for my IPhone!

One is Vivino: a wine app, so you don't forget wines that you've liked or you can mark down ones you want to try. Sometimes I find myself in a liquor store, thinking to myself "what was that wine I like?" It also recommends wines based on those you've rated.

The second one is Kids Media: it allows you to plug in movies or books or video games by age levels and it also rates them. I love it because if my kiddo says, "Can we rent ____ movie?" I can look it up and it has a section "What parents need to know" and lists exactly what (if any) kind of objectionable material could be in it so you can make a good decision whether you want your kids to see it or not. Awesome.

I use it for my 80 year old mom too, because she goes to the movies a lot with her friends and is often offended by what's out there. So I look up movies for her before she goes and sees them. LOL

And lastly, an update on puppy Sox who will be celebrating his first birthday in a few weeks.
He is such a SWEET dog!!  Very cat-like: likes to sit in high places and curl up in my lap as I write.

I say the only issue we're trying to break him of is barking when he's outside. Although, honestly, he has a great bark for a small dog. Not yippie. It's kind of throaty and deep. LOL But still...
Here he is:


And that's it for me!

Any cool Apps you've discovered lately?

OMG. Can Sox get any more adorable?

I'm so glad you got him. He seems to fit with your family really well.

Of course we care, Jennifer. Congrats on the April release - I'm green with envy.

Sandra Orchard said...

Love the title! And Sox if adorable. I have an app on my Mac that I love. Omniwriter helps me write without being tempted to edit.

He is such a cut little pup.

Linda Kage said...

Aww! Happy Birthday to Sox. And congrats on all your edits. April is soooo close!

Thanks for the app rec. My sister found this Yoga app and we did yoga together (once...for like fifteen minutes...and then ate popcorn and watched movies). Lydia still has fun using it though. It's like $2.99

Karen Lange said...

Congrats on the upcoming book! I know that "gulp" and "woo hoo" feeling, kinda intimidating and fun all at the same time...:)

Will have to check out the Kids Media app. There was a website I used to check for stuff like this and I forget the name of it. You're right, it's handy for us adults too!

Aw! Sox is such a cutie! Happy b-day Sox!

I'm going to have to check out that Kids Media. Sounds great! ;)
