OMG I SUCK at Book Challenges! *hahaaa* This was actually the FIRST ONE I have EVER done and as you can see down below I just accidentally (because I kept forgetting) dropped these daily challenges like halfway through the month. 😆 🤣 OPPS! Oh wells! So here is the Book Challenge requirements through Book Riot ...


-- OKAY the book challenge photos/videos are in order of the date they were posted be sure to click the photos or videos to get a better look at them! --

October 1st
October 2nd
October 3rd
October 4th
October 5th
October 6th - 8th

So it looks like I didn't even go halfway ... Opps!

The End via GIPHY

Hopefully I'll do better next time, but I don't have to much faith in that since I wanted to start another for November but thus far (on November 4th) I haven't started one yet. 😂 Have a great weekend everyone! Also if you have any questions about the above novels that I mentioned than please let me know and I'll respond as soon as I can! =0)

Elizabeth City 300 Truck and Tractor Pull @ Morgan’s Corner Pulling Park

This Truck and Tractor Pull happened in June 2013, while I still worked at the Elizabeth City Convention & Visitors Bureau, at Morgan’s Corner Pulling Park. Though I have great footage (at least I think so) I didn't note all the names who pulled so that is why they aren't marked on the video. Nevertheless, check out the Closed Captioning to read what I am hearing the announcers say if you think that'll help you understand them better. I hope you'll enjoy!


** All photography and video footage in my video creation above were taken by me! **

It's A Rundown Life: Elizabeth City, North Carolina

Books & Animals Just Don't Mix...

Okay, since my husband and I are moving in about 2-3 months so I'm trying to get through my TBR pile that I've had for a while. Therefore, I decided to start reading Jacquelyn Frank's "SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS" last night and this is what I found ....


Now I will admit that I knew that it was bitten before I picked it up, since it was at my local library's seasonal book sale, but I just didn't realize how bad it was until yesterday. Thankfully, the previous owner was nice enough to hang onto the 6 torn up corners that I found stuck in the middle of the novel but I needed to tape up/reenforce a little over 25 other pages too. *shakes head*

I guess the pet found "SEDUCE ME IN DREAMS" mighty tasty! *hehee* Now that it's all put together I hope I'll like it just as much! =0)

Port Discover's Window of Wonder :: Black Swallowtail

Hi all ... since June 2010 I've been working as the Operations Manager at Port Discover in Elizabeth City, NC. Recently my co-worker has started a display in one of our windows, now called the "Window of Wonder", and right now, we have some Black Swallowtail Caterpillars on display. We're hoping to watch their lifecycle so we'll get to see them turn from caterpillars into butterflies!

Here's a picture that I took of one of the caterpillars that's in our display:
