I'm taking the plunge into reviewing books!

Well, I have visited blogs for close to a year now and loved reading the reviews on books. Especially when the authors were new to me. I finally signed up to review books with one company and ordered my first book. I would eventually love to sign up with some other publishers but as of right now I'm not sure who gives books out to review other then the company I just recently found (Water Brook Multnomah).

The first book I have selected to review is DEADLY TIES by Vicki Hinze. I am so excited. The book hasn't arrived yet but I'm sure I will love it and hopefully get my review up before the end of February. So I would love to invite you back to check out my review next month and for those of you who have been reviewing for awhile I would love any input or suggestions. Also if you can direct me to any other publishers who offer free books to review I would appreciate that as well.

Smiles & Blessings,

Finally Friday!!!

Wow! Seven days of January already gone and yet the week really dragged by for me. First week back after vacation is always a tough one for me. I work hard before I go on vacation to get everything done, only to come back and play 'catch up'. I'm bushed to say the least and I'm really looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning. Would love to just curl up with a book tomorrow and read but there's a lot of work to be done a home following vacation too. Once I'm caught up I think I'll need another vacation! :o)

Blessings to you all,

Happy New Year!`

It is so redundant to say this but I really can't believe another year has come and gone. I had twelve days off during the holidays, four of which were spent in the car traveling to and from Texas. We had five hours of freezing rain at the start of our trip and seven hours of pouring down rain when we left Texas to come home. At our ages we were exhausted. I must say my 82 (will be 83 on the 15th)year old mother was a real trooper during the trip. She was more concerned in our poodle's comfort than her own. Our dog is well traveled and does really well.

I hope and pray you all had a wonder

ful peaceful and blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year. This year I hope to start blogging more and do some book reviews as well...and who knows maybe I can do a book giveaway along the way. I need to start somewhere!

Blessings to you in this new year!
