Annie’s Million Year List

Book 2 Title: Scrapped

 By Annie Chamovitz
I loved the post on Tuesday by Kath Rutledge from the Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries by Molly MacRae. If you haven’t seen it, click here.
I never participate in any of those other lists she mentioned in her post. A bucket list? Who has time when you have two active boys, a house to clean, scrapbooks to make, and deadlines to manage? And Kath was right—sometimes I do want to run screaming from all of the list makers and senders out there. She was also right that ten things in this list is too much. Five is just right. So I thought I’d give it a go. Here’s my contribution to the “Million Years List” (with kudos to Kath, of course, for the fun idea).

Never in a million years did I think I would:
1.     Hike in the mountains at night and get shot.
2.     Steal empty scrapbooks and boxes of photos off a curb.
3.     Scrapbook with a witch.
4.     Help rescue an old-order Mennonite woman from a serial killer.
5.     Use an outhouse.

A lot of people commented of Kath’s post. If you missed it, please feel free to comment here. What might be on your list?

Book # 3 in the Cumberland Creek Series, DEATH OF AN IRISH DIVA, now has a cover. (Available Feb. 2014)


  1. I like the idea of finding a box of photos - intriguing. Love old photographs, and imagining the stories behind them.

  2. I actually rescued a scrapbook from the trach of my old apartment building. A neighbor had moved out and blindly tossed a bunch of stuff from the basement storage locker into the garbage, including a baby scrapbook someone had made for them that was never used. I had to alter one of the pages to make it more universal, but otherwise have a perfectly good baby gift should the occasion arise.
