Tuesday Talk...


You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - JessicaLizStephanie or any of the other hosts.  :)

I'm gonna talk about the books I read throughout 2015.


I love James Patterson books.
Not only are they good, they are
such fast, easy reads.


I rarely read chicklit but when I do, 
it's one of Meredith's.  I met Meredith through
blogging on another site many moons ago &
I love supporting her.  :)


Harry Potter for the second time.
I decided that with our Spring Break
to Florida & to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
I knew that it was a good time to reread the series.


Right after finishing Deathly Hallows, I was able to jump
right into this gem.  I loved it & it was such a quick
read.  I didn't really like the screenplay format
but it's Harry & I would not resist.


I actually missed this book when I was done reading it!
I really enjoyed it.  I finished it up before the movie came out
& had a movie date with my friend, Jen.  It was awesome!


More James Patterson - well, of course!
This man releases books faster than any other author I know
so I'm ALWAYS behind on reading his stuff.


This book had me giggling out loud a couple of times.
After I was done, I passed it on to my grandma to read cuz she loves Ellen.  :)


I read Volume One through Sixteen of these
"graphic novels" & I was sucked right in.  I got/ordered eight 
compilation books to read & I learned that issues, 
volumes & books are all different.  Ha!


& the finally book of the year & final book of 
Meredith's that I need to read.  Now, I am ready for
her to come out with more.

Grand total:  Fourteen books & sixteen "graphic novels".  I think that's pretty dang good & I cannot wait to jump in my books/"graphic novels" for 2017.  The first one on my list is:

  1. You read a lot of books this year! I want to re-read the Harry Potter series too, but with Mase this time. I've been curious about the Ellen book. I adore her!

    1. I was pretty proud of myself for reading as much as I did. To some, it doesn't seem like a lot but it does for me. Oh, I would love to read the HP books with a young one, that would be so fabulous! :) The Ellen book was good. I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
