I Promised

This entire week has been spent cleaning out the office end of our family room. Of course, in the middle of all that, I decided I had enough scrapbooking, stamping and crafting stuff to have a garage sale. That was accomplished on Friday, with medium success. It was helped out at the end by my neighbor's mother purchasing 3 of my Longaberger baskets, and 2 additional sales on Saturday that amounted to $50! And I wasn't even having the sale on Saturday! One was the older lady who bought all my books, and one was a lady who came back to buy some of my scrapbooking kits. YIPPEE! I packed the rest away for the fall city-wide sale.

Anyway, I think I'll be brave enough to post before, during and after pics so you can see how much work this project was!

BEFORE:DURING: (everything was basically in the rec area of the room)
AFTER: (yes, that's Patrick Dempsey as the wallpaper on my computer)The furniture is still mix and match, but at least I have plenty of storage, and the drawer cabinets (2) that I got from work are AWESOME! I have all of my scrapbooking and stamping stuff in there, labeled on the outside of the drawer. Well, mostly labeled as we ran out of tape for the labeler. Will finish that sometime this week.I am exhausted! It's been a very busy week. I still have some stuff to put up out of the other end of the room, but the job is almost complete! I vow NEVER to let it get so unorganized again!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

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.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
