Relaxing day...

On the holiday we all went to my daughters and hung out. We had a potluck-y type of barbecue. Then we had a fire in the firepit to sit around.

It was a lovely relaxing day.

Which I needed as I have been doing nothing but working lately. We are okayed for as much overtime as we want to work and I have a used motor for my van to pay for and a new recliner to buy so - I've been at work.

Work means being at the computer so I haven't spent much time here even when I was home.

Also, I haven't bought many books to read because of the heartbleed computer virus thing. Waiting to be sure amazon is clear.

I have been re-reading when I read. I re-read the Burg series by Kristen Ashley. And I re-read In The Midnight Rain by Barbara Samuel.

What have you been up to? Been reading? Re-reading?

The All You Can Dream Buffet...

By Barbara O'Neal

It actually came out in early March of this year.

I bought it right away but I didn't start reading it because I knew once I started I wouldn't want to put it down before I finished.

And I was right.


What a great book.

There are 4 main characters. All women who are flawed, lovable, quirky. They come together over the internet through their blogs.

B.S.O. has once again created a world I would love to live in. Sisterhood, lavender, honey, good food, airstreams, transformation and steamy sex lives. Sigh again. What more could one want?

Are you an O'Neal fan?

If you aren't, start with this book. I promise you will become a fan and you will have a whole backlog of wonderful books to explore.

If you are, have you read this one yet?

I highly recommend it, my friends.

Extremely disappointed!

Whining rant warning...

Television - why do I bother?

I love the show Elementary. I never get to watch it on regular tv because I'm usually working.

I have been excited all week because I was asked to work later today and I was excited to watch Elementary with everyone else instead of later on amazon instant videos (which I am very grateful for, btw).

So what happens? A storm.

The thing is - the storm is more than a hundred miles from me and not headed this way. And yet, the local abc, cbs, nbc stations all pre-empted everything for hours.

Including Elementary.

Remember the days long ago when the damn news knew it's place and would just run warnings at the top of the screen.

Now they have to take over whole shows so they can repeat the same information over and over and over again, ad nauseam.

Again - why do I bother? Between the tyrannical 'news' industry and the inane reality shows it's just not worth it. And definitely not worth the price of cable.

What's your take?

Found this on pinterest.

In her book How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author by Janet Evanovich, she recommends always just using she said or he said.
