Holy cow, can you believe that May is already gone (and almost a year’s worth of reading is behind us?!) I’m currently working on my summer reading list and eye-balling a few new releases that are supposed to be hitting the shelves soon (I’m looking at you, Ilona Andrews… and am impatiently waiting to read…

Cheap wine & free books

Earlier this week, I was shopping at Trader Joe’s when I came across a deal I couldn’t pass up.  In the center aisle was a STACK of wine bottles. Red. My favorite kind.  … all marked at $4.99 (😳😮👏 I know, right?! I was excited too!)  So I immediately bought three bottles, took them home,…

Have you heard about the PERFECT tool for readers??

My husband is the type of guy who won’t start something unless he has the right tools. Otherwise, sorry, we can’t start. Nope. Not a thing. A hard pause is in effect.  So now that we’ve established that fact, let me get to the meat of our story…  It all begins with Yoga.  (… I…

Books so hot, your kindle might explode.

It’s been getting HOT here in Arizona (Summer is coming) and all my poor flowers in the front yard are struggling.  I get it.  I would wilt if I sat in the sun all day too.  So I went and bought some mint to replace a few of the sadder-looking plants (meaning… they’re dead and…

When I was young, there was a magical location that my mother would take me to… … but only if I had finished all my chores and my homework  and my creamed spinach (bleh!) But when all the monumental tasks of childhood were conquered, off she’d pack me into her minivan…  and we’d go to the…

Go on… get drunk

Someone told me yesterday that Gratitude is Wine for the Soul.  (… actually, I think it was on the sandwich board at the wine bar I stopped at for Happy Hour.)  Anyway, roll with me here…  It’s time to get a little drunk.  x Picture it: It’s early morning. The sun is just coming out to…

Has a book ever hurt you?

Reading is a dangerous hobby, my friend!  Watch your back.  Proof, you say? You want proof?  Here you go… Last night, I was sitting on the couch reading a book about how to raise backyard quail (don’t ask).  And then it happened.  I yawned.  And my neck decided that was it, it had had enough. …

It’s Official My husband is CRAZY

It all started at a three-year-old’s birthday party…  (as these things so often do)  I was goofing off with the kids when my niece walked up with a fake cell phone.  She talked for a while, then handed it to me.  I talked for a while to the imaginary person, then said they wanted to…

Plot Twist

My husband doesn’t usually play practical jokes.  But today, he decided to throw out all our long-standing history of trust, love, and respect that we have for each other, and play an April Fools Day joke on me.  PHOTO CREDIT: https://m.facebook.com/mendonfire/posts/41555415744 But the man… he is diabolically clever.  A trait that attracted me to him, yes,…
