Our Wellness Adventure has already begun! We’re not on airplanes just yet, but we had a Happy Hour, a “Jungle Jane” happy hour to be precise. Here we all (but three) got to mix and meet and raise a glass to the adventure that we’ve begun. What an amazing group of women! I’m humbled, blown away, and absolutely besotted with my trip mates. Most of them, I’ve…

Oh, Yes I Am…

January 8, 2016

I’m the first to admit that my blogging has taken a back seat. No, maybe my blogging has taken the back road this year. Wait, maybe I’m just a slacker. It’s  depressing interesting to see my stats for my “outlet” writing for the year. They’re pretty non-existent. My blogging is where I write for fun, not profit. Hmmm, have I been lacking fun in my world?…

Shadows of Self (Mistborn) is the 5th book in the Mistborn series that started way back in 2006 with Mistborn: The Final Empire. I would have never considered myself a fantasy genre fan, but I was trying to find something my husband and I could both enjoy. I’m so…

♦♦♦ I was pretty excited to win this book in a GoodReads contest, not just because I got a free book, but because I really was ready to read the second book. The first book, The Rosie Project, I totally adored. I couldn’t wait to read this one, but for some reason I just kept putting it off for other things. When it was delivered…

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ McKinty does it again. This series is never disappointing! Again and again, I’m drawn right back to the streets of Belfast and sucked into the world in which my husband grew up. I enjoy that we listen to these books via Audible together so I can stop them occasionally and ask questions like, “No way! Did that kind of stuff really happen?” I love…

Dead Eye by Mark Greaney

July 20, 2015

♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ The latest in the Gray Man series does not disappoint. I haven’t really been reading this year, which I hate, but there are only so many hours in the day. I’ve chosen other things this year. . . bucket list things, so a decent trade. However, my husband and I started this one just before we went on vacation. He loves the action and…

Twitter didn’t not sing to me in the beginning. My husband, a tech nerd-not-nerd was on Twitter and he’s a man of few words for the world; he’s more of a face to face type definitely not a broadcaster type. His family back in Ireland knows what he’s up to only because I never shut up, primarily on Facebook. I post where we are, what…
