Solitude

Not all it is hyped up to be...Yes I love the quiet and peaceful times....especially after raising five kids.  My house was always filled with people, kids, dogs, friends, relatives, etc.

But now that we are empty nesters there are days that it is ghostly quiet....and then there is this....chaos, noise, eating, drinking -- love, hugs, kisses......Our Thanksgiving....Family...plenty of time for quiet tomorrow.....

Review: 34 Days

34 Days 34 Days by Anita Waller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story about Anna, her abusive husband, her grown children and her secrets keep you turning the pages ... When she cant take the abuse anymore, she leaves.....but her daughter in law has her own secrets and these lives become entangled webs of deceit and lies. The story has twists and turns until the last chapter or so when the most unusual ending appears......well worth the read - a real page turner....

Review: The Truth About Us

The Truth About Us The Truth About Us by Dalene Flannigan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My Kindle has thousands of books. Upon trying to rearrange some of them I came along this one that I had not finished or reviewed. Upon finally completing it, I know why I stopped - a good story but quite slow moving - about friends with a secret - and we know when you hold in secrets they eventually come to light....but I found there was something lacking in the story....cant put my finger on it....anyone else feel the same (if you have read this book)

Review: The Things We Wish Were True

The Things We Wish Were True The Things We Wish Were True by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book started off slow and I thought I would never get through it. But with one instant of a tragedy and how a town came together and changed the neighborhood - I was hooked. Sycamore Glen had its share of secrets and one summer with the tragedy of a little boy (Cutter) almost drowning in a pool - the story takes us through each family and their reaction to the incident. From Zell and John - the elderly couple who do not hesitate to help anyone; to Jencey and Lance and their families; to Bryte and Everett and their secret....well, you get the picture. You get involved in their lives and feel their joy and pain....a great read.

The trend is.....

You hear everyday that there is a trend.  Fashion trends, toy trends, shoe trends, etc.  And of course there is always jewelry trends.  A famous movie star wears a necklace and all of a sudden that becomes the trend...a must-have.

Why dont you start your own trend?  With the holidays coming and parties beginning to crop up (Thanksgiving is next week, what better way to show off than at your family dinner?)


Check it out now at my estore.....
Because Avon is more than makeup!!

Love those Stocking Stuffers


While I do not celebrate Christmas, I am gungho on stocking stuffers.....I love to make them, love to give them and having alot of acquaintances who do nice things for me - I tend to make many.  Being an Avon Rep affords me the opportunity to make nice stocking stuffers.

But you too, can make them for little or no money.....I usually put at least 3 items into a stuffer (sometimes my stuffers are not stockings but a nice container)...I always put a hand cream and a lip balm and then one makeup item (usually a mascara, eyeliner or eyeshadow)  I have given these gifts to the crossing guards, the school nurse and the security officer in my school.

Take a look at the deal below - and you too can easily make at least 3 stuffers for these people you need to give a small gift to.....this year instead of stockings or containers I will be purchasing gloves and adding these items to them, wrapped in cellophane.....
