I have to admit - the snow late this afternoon was beautiful, but enough already! I want SPRING! I saw today that Daylight Savings Time starts March 9. I hope we are enjoying some spring weather by then. Here's where I'd like to be sitting on a beautiful sunny spring day.Here's the water tower down the street from us.
We did our usual errand-running today. Kaitlin and I did manage to get to the hair salon and there was some cuttin' and colorin' goin' on! Kaitlin wanted to go darker. I really like it. I'm going to have to sneak a picture of her though, as she wouldn't let me take one earlier. I'll sneak a picture soon, so you can see her new glasses and hair style & color!

Corby's KU team lost earlier today. We're watching K-State now. I told him he is not allowed to root against them! If he starts to, he's headed upstairs to watch the rest of the game. Brandon is missing the game because he is working. He'll be headed home on Thursday. Has a couple of concerts to go to - 3 Days Grace with Breaking Benjamin at the Coliseum on Thursday night, and then a bunch of local head-banging bands on Saturday night at the Cotillion. It will be good to see him!

Currently I am reading John Grisham's latest book - The Appeal. Very good so far.

I haven't posted a quote in a while, so here's a good one: "They may not remember what you said, they may not remember what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel." - Gordon B. Hinckley

That's a great quote, Linda. And I'm ALMOST ready to be done with winter, too. I love cold weather, though, and it's hard for me to admit that.

REVIEW - Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky

4 Stars
St. Martin's Press
Release date: June 26, 2018

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've been reading Delinksy's books for years, and she's always an author I can count on for a good read. This book is no exception. I did find it a little harder to get into than previous books, it seemed a bit disjointed at first. Thus 4 stars instead of 5.

The book is about Mackenzie Cooper, who moved to a small town to lose herself and get away from a tragic occurrence in her life. It delves deeply into the despair of losing a child (this happens at the very beginning so it's not a spoiler) and what happens between the spouses who are having trouble communicating their pain. It also deals with Mackenzie's mother and brother, and their estrangement.

Suddenly, Mackenzie's ex-husband appears, in HER town, HER haven. Can they find their way back together, or is the past too painful to forget?

The Osmonds on PBS

I've never hidden my obsession with the Osmonds. Donny and his oldest performing brother, Alan, were my favorites. While "flipping" channels tonight around 7pm, Corby came across the Osmonds 50th Anniversary concert in Las Vegas on PBS. It was filmed last August. Can you believe the oldest brothers have been performing for 50 years? I can tell you exactly how old every Osmond brother is. They are all 2 years apart, Alan is 58, Wayne is 56, Merrill is 54, Jay is 52 and Donny is a year younger than me. He turned 50 in December. (Guess that tells everybody how old I am, huh?). Marie is 48, and oops, I'm not sure how old "baby" Jimmy is.
I was jamming to all those 70's songs: Double Lovin', One Bad Apple, Puppy Love, Down by the Lazy River, Yo-Yo, Love Me For a Reason, Crazy Horses, The Proud One, Let Me In, and the very best harmony ever - He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother! What a performance! Alan has MS now, so doesn't perform much, but he w…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.
