Rainy Days and Grandchildren

My life is full and I am blessed.  So on this day I awoke and left the house early to run some errands before some of the grandchildren came over.  Their mama and dad had plans and asked us to have a sleep over.  Not the first time and I am sure not the last.  So of course we filled the house with their favorites.

Baked Ziti

And playing with grandpa....Unfortunately it is raining outside but we have treats (chips and ice cream) a good movie and some card playing later on.....

Something for Mother's Day


I have been looking for a top for Mother's Day - something simple yet elegant and since I wear dark colors (I am always staining the light colored tops) I came across an elegant, simple top right in the Avon Catalog.

This Open Shoulder Crochet Top has crochet both in the front and the back.  It is polyester which means you can machine wash and dry it.  Center back length is 24" on the medium and 27-1/2" on the 1X.  Sizes range from small to 3X - perfect for every size.  And it is only $24.99 ($29.99 for the X sizes.)

Order it now as it is going fast - and look beautiful for Mother's Day - or any day of the week.

Review: Lift and Separate: A Novel

Lift and Separate: A Novel Lift and Separate: A Novel by Marilyn Simon Rothstein
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Didnt think I would love this book. Just isnt my genre - BUT I loved it. How many things can go wrong in ones life? Just ask Marcy Hammer. She thought she had a great marriage only to find out her husband is cheating on her....he's sorry, she takes him back - then his mistress is pregnant. That isnt enough but her mom falls, breaks her ankles - finds out she has cancer! And dont get me into what her daughter is doing.

This book is so refreshing and delightful to read that I finished it in 3 days...(that's a record for me). I would have given it 5 stars but the ending left me hanging - I wanted more and more! Cant wait for October - when her next book comes out - Pass the Brownies. Sometimes it pays to read new authors.

Review: Stop Me

Stop Me Stop Me by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Read another book in five days. But then again it's another Novak book. I am totally hooked on her and may never read another author....

This is part of The Last Stand series and continues with the life of one of the three women running this organization to help victims of crime, but when Jasmine gets a note from who she believes is her sister's abductor, she is off to New Orleans to track him down. In the process she also hooks up with Romain Fournier believing that the man who killed his daughter is the same one who abducted her sister.

This book is a page turner and now that I am hooked - well, I just started reading the third book in this series.....Watch Me.

Review: Trust Me

Trust Me Trust Me by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Brenda Novak. And I loved it - It was a real page turner - didnt want to go to sleep - would rather read. The story while it had romance, also had suspense. The best part is it is part of a series (The Last Stand) and of course I am hooked and will go on to read the next book.

Skye Kellerman gets attacked and while her attacker is in jail - she still does not feel safe, making it tough to get through everyday - but when she opens The Last Stand with friends, Jasmine and Sheridan - she gets some of her life back -- until -- she learns that Oliver Burke, her attacker is getting out of jail early and has not forgotten that she put him there.

The story keeps you turning the page to find out how this will end. And now onto the next book in the series.....I am totally hooked.
