Review: Say Goodbye for Now

Say Goodbye for Now Say Goodbye for Now by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I keep forgetting how good Catherine Ryan Hyde writes. This story starts off slow with Dr Lucy by herself. Not able to practice medicine because the town wont accept her as a woman doctor; she resorts to taking care of wounded animals and lives alone in the house her father left her.

But one day that all changes with Pete, a little boy who found a wolf-dog injured and when the vet would not help him, he takes the animal to Dr Lucy. And that is when a friendship starts with not only the doctor but also the boy who helped him with the animals....who happens to be black - living in a town that is violently against interracial friendships.

This is definitely a cant-put-down book.

Avon Leadership

When I began my journey with Avon I did it not only to supplement my income, but also to extend my social being.  With the future holding my retirement I still looked forward to meeting new people and getting out more.  My friends at work will still be in contact with me, but during the day of course they will be working - and I will be at home.

Not that I will have nothing to do - just being able to shop in the morning without the crowds sounds good to me.  Having breakfast out with hubby, taking some side road trips....and then being able to work my Avon business during the day instead of after work and on weekends.

In two years I have worked my customer base up to 50 customers in my neighborhood, and 30 online. I also have reps that signed up under me and I love tutoring them.  Those in the neighborhood have constant contact while those out of state are in touch via email, text and phone calls.

I love being a leader and helping out my reps.  Together we are making Avon not only a business but also a family.

Would you like to join my family?  Ask me how - contact me today and I will be happy to send you all the information you need to join.  Ready to join?  Go to my website and click on the Boss Life box

You wont regret joining such a great establishment, meeting new people and making it part time or full time like me. Here is what you get when you join:

Review: Sweet Tea Tuesdays

Sweet Tea Tuesdays Sweet Tea Tuesdays by Ashley Farley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is nothing like having close friends to keep you going. And that is what happens in this book.. 3 friends (Midge, Lula and Georgia) meet on Tuesdays to have tea and talk over what is happening in their life. But that stops one day when one hesitates to tell the other her husband is cheating on her; and then Lula stops because of her brain tumor - the story is intermingled with Lula's 3 daughters and their lives.....but the families find a way to put the bad things on the side and bond their friendship even more....

A heartwarming story of love, friendship and family that will make you cry and laugh and give thought to your own life and family.
