Random pic, I know. Lol.
For whatever reason I simply can't write through blogger, I think I mentioned this once before. I prefer to open up notepad and begin through there. 
Which has randomly inspired me to start thinking about writing a book - maybe? - why not? When I have some free time other then watching TV or spending hours on Pinterest or Tumblr I can begin writing, obviously this would be a long process, but why the heck not?? 

I know I have been slacking with posting...but I am back. I was a bit busy and now I got sick again all of a sudden. Woke up on Sunday with a cold and then Monday - worse...with a bit of a fever, my head literally feels like it is swimming, if that makes sense. 

Blah, whatever. 

On another note, I began reading "Poison Study" and so far, so good! I am enjoying it quite a bit! I am halfway through, so once I am done I will let you all know what I thought. I do think that it lacks a bit of detail so far...sort of feels rushed at times when reading, but I still like it. 

So tonight is going to be a quiet night. I am feeling like massive crap and just want to sleep since I had the worst sleep imagineable last night. 
I will study and go to bed early. 
Oh and Real Housewives of Vancouver is on in a few days! WOOHOO!!

Here is a recipe that I will leave you all with. Something that looks interesting and sounds delicious. Minus the olives. I will omit the olives, lol. 

Bon Appetit!

Tuscan Salmon With Rosemary Orzo
Fresh herbs abound here ~ as does niacin, an energizing B vitamin: One serving of salmon dishes up nearly 70 percent of your daily niacin needs.
