I did stuff on this blog in 2015.


Now, just to figure out my goals for next year.

Obviously, get more followers, more visits and comment more. I have been having a lot of issues with some of the comment plugins. And, I would like to use this to get more writing jobs. Only time will tell.

What are your plans for 2016?

Chicken Stock _AlwaysReiding


I have made it no secret that I like chicken noodle soup. And, in this house, we eat a lot of chicken. But, it is a little easier to buy chicken soup (at Souplantation–if you follow me on Instagram, you may see my love affair with them, but mainly with their salads on IG).

It's Monday! What Are You ReadingEach Monday, The Book Date asks what we’re reading…  Please visit the site to link up your current list and hold yourself accountable. Also, you can visit some great blogs who are also doing this meme… It’s pretty awesome.

And, feel free to comment below so I can check out what you’re doing! Be sure to leave your website address or post so I can leave you some comments,

Pilot_2015_AlwaysReidingI MAY have treated myself to an early Christmas present–can’t have those callouses from my Lamy Safari any longer.

And what they say IS true–the second is just as cheap as the first. And better in the long run.

Maybe they say that about cats or maybe they say that about kids, but I’m saying it about a fountain pen. And this Pilot Metropolitan is LOVELY. The whole line is nice,
