I always love book recommendations! Thanks! I just bought Bad Things by Michael Marshall. I am going to check out the two authors you mentioned!

Whenever we take trips to different towns you will always find me checking out the book shops! I love mystery,thrillers, fantasy, drama, the classics, and American southern gothic to name a few. Patricia Cornwell is one of my top favourites. If you are into mystery/thriller then you should check out Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Before You Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson.....both amazing! The latter is being made into a movie by Ridley Scott. ( I am also a film lover). I am always happy to meet a fellow book lover.....what are you into?

Good luck house hunting, keeping you in my prayers.



Have a wonderful trip Jennifer! I hope you are fully restored to good health as I know you have been unwell. Stay safe and keeping you all in prayer.



Good on you! I think it is a good idea to start geting things in especially when you find a bargain!



Such an exciting time for you. get lots of sleep and rest you are going to need it !! LOL!



Have a wonderful day. What festival is it? xx

I am with you on late-night phone calls. In the past two weeks, I have received phone calls at about 1 a.m. Both times, it was the same person and a wrong number at that! I hate that! So glad that everyone is okay!

She wasn't driving, one of her guy friends was. It wasn't her friends fault, the other car went through a stop sign and t-boned his car. Thankfully no one was hurt. I drove down to where it happened to make sure everyone was alright and to take my daughter home. I'm telling you, these teenage years are wearing me out. It's so stressful. I'm at the point where I don't even say hello when they call me, the first words out of my mouth are "Are you alright?"
Anyway, I have to go food shopping today. I'm happy I made it to my butcher yesterday, so that is off my list. I also need to go to the bank and the pet store. Other than that it will be a typical day, I have laundry and some other chores to do.
It is going to be sunny today with a high of 82 degrees. I wish it were a bit cooler but the humidity is gone, so I shouldn't complain.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!

Harlowe & I just took a nice walk, and I am looking forward to a day of getting some things done around the house and relaxing after my first week.

What are your plans?

Hope you have a blessed day!!
The weather in Eau Claire sounds lovely, have a beautiful day Snowflake

In the dream, there were men from India trying to sell their kids to the schools! How weird is that?
That is quite a dream!! How scary!
