Dont go to the park without this

I love the park, but actually I live in a neighborhood that looks like a park.  Lots of grass, trees and even water nearby.  But I still love going to the park.

Review: The Ritual Bath

The Ritual Bath The Ritual Bath by Faye Kellerman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another book I couldnt put down. Takes place in a Jewish Yeshiva community with a group of very religious people. Det. Decker is dealing with rapes in his town and is assigned to this community to cover yet another rape - but because of this close knit group, he has to approach it carefully as their customs are strict. The only one who will talk openly to him is Rina Lazarus who also takes him through the customs and laws. But doing so has brought them closer than is permitted.

By the time they get to the bottom of both crimes, Decker and Lazarus have discovered things about themselves they try to control . Of course this is #1 in a series, so I am looking forward to the continuing saga.

Review: Too Close For Comfort

Too Close For Comfort Too Close For Comfort by Adam Croft
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book I have read by Adam Croft and loved it. I usually dont guess who did it...but this time I knew something was array and who it might be. Or all these mystery/hriller books are finally teaching me how to be a good detective.

DS Knight has her first murder case...and its a serial killer. She is very outspoken and lets her boss know it. But when she suspects a close friend, she goes all out to prove she is right. But is she. I wasnt sure, but then I thought I had an idea. This is a "can't put down" book and very fast read. Going to read more Croft books....great writer.

The ants are coming....

I am not a winter person; hate the cold, hate the snow.
So when the thought of summer enters my mind I think of warmth, outdoors, sun, and relaxing with a glass of wine....or two.
But with summer comes bugs. I am not a fan...in fact it started already and it is not even hot out. Along with all the rain we are getting comes the ants. They seem to creep into the house and are everywhere. The other day I found them on my counter....under the cutting board.
And now to get rid of them. Removing everything off the counter and wiping it down with hot water and soap.....I took out my trusty Skin So Soft....sprayed the paper towel and went over every surface of the counter.....smells good.

Then I also sprayed around the kitchen window making sure I got into every crevice there was.
They are gone; wish the rain would go also. But alas no ants. How about you? Ask me about Skin So Soft and how you can get rid of your ants! And the hundreds of other uses for it...besides smoothing your skin.

Review: The Good Widow

The Good Widow The Good Widow by Liz Fenton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jacks and her husband had a good marriage, or so she thought. Unknown to her, he decides to have an affair....which ends up with a trip to Hawaii with his mistress. Thinking her husband was away on a business trip in Kansas, she is shocked to learn of his death in Hawaii.

In order to deal with this shock, she is approached by the fiance, Nick. He suggests they go to Hawaii to the scene of the accident in order to have some closure - and she agrees but only after a few days in Hawaii does Jacks find out more information than she wanted to know.

And only after they both return from Hawaii, does she find out the real truth. Amazing book, keeps you turning the pages - many surprises.

This was a quick read and while informative there was much that I knew already. The author does focus a lot on paid ads in Twitter, FB, Instagram and others, and some very good ideas on how to get your audience to notice your posts.

Review: The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be

The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have been wanting to read this book for a while now; and received it as a gift for my birthday. The basic idea in this book is to give you confidence to run your business, no matter what it is, and to succeed in the right direction.

Needless to say, it has helped greatly. The words have inspired me to put into practice many of the ideas.....and I am happily doing great and on my way to President's Club in my business!
