Addicted to......


It is calming, and productive...........

Keeps me from eating - snacking - thinking...............

I used to do it when my kids were smaller but have recently gone back to it when my boss became pregnant.  Thought making a nice baby blanket would be good.  Now I am hooked and just ordered more yarn for another blanket.....

Cant wait to get started on the next blanket for a colleague who is due next month.  There is something so rewarding when you make it yourself.  Forgot how much.  Since I dont have the yarn yet will have to go back to reading .....Have a great Sunday!

Review: The Secret Sister

The Secret Sister The Secret Sister by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story. The only reason I did not finish in 3 days (like her other books) is that I had to return to work and therefore couldnt read during the day. But again this book has you wanting more (so I purchased #2 of Fairham Island series) and cant wait to get started.

Maisey gets a divorce and returns to the island from NY to reunite with her mother who is not the easiest to get along with. She moves into the bungalows owned by her mom and being renovated by Rafe who along with his daughter who is blind become entangled in Maisey's life. When Rafe removes the walls to one of the bungalows and finds a box of pictures, he immediately gives them to Maisey.

And the adventure begins when she sees pictures of a sister who her brother said died many years ago. But as she delves into the story behind the pictures, she comes away with much more than she bargained for. Great story of romance and mystery.

Always on my Mind

So I finished a full day's work today and a busy one.  Payroll is always a deadline kind of job.  But I did get every one paid on time.  After an exhausting day I started on the way home first to drop off my grandson - and then I received a call from hubby.  He said to pick up some dinner on the way home.  So I decided to stop at the local deli for some food.

The deli is on a pretty busy street with many other stores on one side and quite a few houses on the other.  And as I was parking I realized - now would be a good time to do some Avon business.  It's a job that can be done anywhere - anytime

So before I hit the deli I dropped off books at the local nail salon, and the laundromat on that block.  After I ordered and received the deli I placed the bag in my car and then crossed the street to toss some books on the steps of the houses there.

I love Avon - its a job you can do when you least expect it - when you are not planning on doing it - or in between other things you are doing.

Have you thought of becoming a rep?  Do it part time or full time - it fits in any where and who wouldn't like the extra money?

My Grandson Beats Me

It happens every time he comes over.  And I can’t ignore him because he is just so adorable.  He comes over quite a lot and gets me all the time.  Is it his face?  So like his father’s.  It brings back memories long ago.  He has me wrapped around his little finger and every time I try to keep up – he beats me again.
Now he has downloaded it to my IPad – 3D Super Hero – the Lego man who runs and jumps over walls, helicopters and collects power balls so he can fly.  He teaches me how to go under and over these things but he is so much faster than me – and he always beats me!

Review: If I'm Found

If I'm Found If I'm Found by Terri Blackstock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I probably should have read #1 as this seems to be an ongoing series. But it was not hard to find out why Casey Cox was on the run. Accused of a murder she did not commit. But of course the story gets more involved when she comes by a child that was kidnapped and saves her. It seems Casey doesnt like it when justice isnt done. So in her fleeing she keeps getting involved in other people's problems.

There is also Dylan, the PI hired to find her - who comes to believe in her innocence and helps her with the bad guys. A fast moving story and I like Blackstock's way of writing. While waiting for #3 in the series to come out, think I will go back and get the original If I Run series #1 to find out the events that led up to her running.

Review: Dead Right

Dead Right Dead Right by Brenda Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So we finally find out who killed the Reverend. This last book in the trilogy keeps you on your toes especially when Madeline brings in her own PI to look into the disappearance of her father 20 years ago. With a little romance and lots of mystery - one person who popped up, I didnt expect to be involved - this book was read in 3 days.

Love Novak books and will continue to read them especially since I cant put them down. The whole Montgomery family is amazing and powerful. Great writing again!
