Deal of the Day Today

In all my decades of living - and there have been many - one of the things I learned was to treat your skin well.  Cleanse, and hydrate it and it will treat you well.  I know I would like to grow old gracefully but who says that we need to have a million wrinkles?  No way - so every night I cleanse and hydrate my face and neck...

In my 40s I usually used Vitale by Avon, but the older I got the more moisture I would need.  I finally graduated to Ultimate and now Avon has an Ultimate Supreme -
and if bought separately it will cost you $50 (guess you missed the sale price....


just place a $45+ order and use the code ULTIMATE.....and you too can have beautiful skin.....or you can give it as a gift....check it out today at http://www.youravon.com/ashapiro.


Review: The Girl Who Lied

The Girl Who Lied The Girl Who Lied by Sue Fortin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Family is the backbone of this world. It is different all over the world. Relatives are family but also friends are part of it. This story goes to the core as to what would you do to protect your family. Erin is dating Roisin's brother - but when fate takes a turn and Erin becomes pregnant, both families want her to terminate. But Erin and Niall have different plans - one that will change both their lives and the lives of their families. When Erin leaves Ireland to move to England with her secret she never thought anyone would know until she must return because her father is in the hospital.

This story shows the bond families can have and how protecting one another is a beautiful thing but also can be a scarey thing.

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.
