Love My Nook

What a nice surprise waiting at my door today – a box from UPS that has a brand new Nook in it! I ordered it last week and didn’t know how long it would really take to get here. Since I didn’t pay extra for expedited shipping, I figured it would take a week to 10 days to arrive. But it got here on the fourth day after I ordered it at night online.

The Nook has to charge up the battery and then the battery life is really long – the booklet that came with it says the battery can last about 2 weeks without needing to be recharged! That is awesome and I hope that turns out to be true. The weird thing is that there is no way to turn off the Nook, so the battery life is not extended by turning off the device. That’s a little weird to me – especially if there is any kind of GPS device or app on the Nook that tracks where I am. That’s kinda creepy to think that you can’t turn it off and some with bad intentions might be tracking you. Ick.

Shopping for New Boots

My closet probably storesĀ  more shoes and boots than it does actual clothes. But all my boots are fashion boots. I have all different kinds of materials and colors, a variety of heel heights, some have buckles, others have zippers. But when it come down to survival int he cold weather, I just realized that I don not have a single pair of good, waterproof snow boots.

This weekend I will take care of that problem. I want to have a pair of moon boots or something like insulated hiking boots, so that if we get a bad snow storm or a bad ice storm this year and I have a problem getting out of the house that I can still at least walk to the store to buy food and supplies.
