January 31st already?

I can't believe it's January 31st already...time flies when you're having fun.

Here's some of the fun we've had this week:

Cats enjoying some sunshine...

Stopped and got gas Wed. night since they were predicting the snowstorm to hit us Thursday afternoon. When I came home Tues. night gas was 2.44/gal. When I went to work Wed. morning it had gone up to 2.59/gal. When I got gas that night, it was down to 2.56/gal. Up 15 cents and down 3 cents in less than 24 hours...

Thursday evening the snow hit.

Cinnamon LOVES the snow...

Lenore got me a Linwood Barclay book for Christmas. After reading it, I ordered 4 more of his books from Amazon. (Buy 3, get 1 free)...

We got new sheets for our waterbed. Can't find waterbed sheets locally, so I bought them online, along with a new mattress pad.

Got a couple of new CD's this week: Waking Up by One Republic and The Greatest Love Songs of All Time by Barry Manilow. Both are really good!

Scentsy candles (wax heated by a light bulb). I got this from a friend for Christmas and am just now getting around to using it! LOVE THE SMELL! It's a good thing my sister-in-law in Oklahoma sells this stuff. I can tell I'm going to be buying more!

My assistant came back to work part-time on Tuesday. She had been off for 3 weeks after having neck surgery. She will be back full time this Tuesday. I really missed her. Now I need to get everything caught up so I can take the week of Feb. 15th off!

The Grammy Awards are on tonight. We'll see if Taylor Swift comes away the big winner like she has at just about every other awards show this past year...

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.

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...

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?)
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…
The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris

Entangled Publishing

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.
