Morning Meanderings… Perfectly Timed

I am on the tale end of a full week ( with bookend weekends) off. Normally if I take time off its because I am going somewhere or have a big commitment, like Camp.
Not this time.
For the first time in as long as I can remember, I just spent 9 days at home working on house projects, doing things I have wanted to do – but just have not had the time. I absolutely loved it. Waking up around 6:30 every morning, coffee, creating, clearing of the head… I left the house only for groceries and supplies for my projects.
And… there was audio.


As I look at the titles of what I chose to listen to this past week I am a bit concerned… lol. They all have an air of mystery to them, great suspense – but nothing over the top heavy or creepy. They were great listens while I painted my kitchen cabinets, cleaned out cupboards and closets, repurposed furniture, and tackled the job of painting the entire lower level of my home.

A few teasers before I write reviews…

A Woman Alone by Nina Laurin: Read with my book club, nominated by Paula. Cecelia, along with her husband and daughter have recently moved into a neighborhood of smart homes. Homes that are the wave of the future – they do nearly everything for you, know your favorite tv shows, when you work and come home, when you need to wake, sleep, cook your dinner and know how you like your coffee. The concept is to feel completely safe, but Cecelia does not. There are things she notices that others do not… and she begins to fear for her life.

The Girls Weekend by Jody Gehrman: Chosen by me, while browsing through Audible. June and Sadie have been for the most part life-long rivals all along hanging together in the same group of friends. Competing back in their school days from everything from best grades, accomplishments, and yes, even the guy. Now, many years later a Girls Weekend has been planned at Sadie’s home to celebrate their friends upcoming baby. Reluctantly, June decided to join at the last minute, after all it would be nice to see the other girls. What starts out as a weekend get together quickly turns into something else… a missing host… a smashed phone… and a lot of blood. Leaving all the girls as suspects and every one of them with a reason to kill.

The Haunting of Brynn Wilder by Wendy Webb: A long time fan of Wendy and her books, this was an easy choice. Brynn Wilder is due for a break. After a tough year, Brynn takes a break by staying in a boarding house in a town called Wharton, near Lake Superior. Brynn meets some wonderful long term guests including a man who more than catches her eye. But all is not as it seems in this quiet town as Brynn is soon to find out. One of the rooms is closed to the public and as the tragedy unfolds… Brynn begins to feel that somehow she is connected – drawn in through her dreams, and quite possibly her nightmares.

All three have been quite enjoyable and the time off during this strange year – priceless. Highly recommend if you can find a way to take a mini break and shut the world out (at least a little bit) its well worth the reset. Full reviews coming. šŸ˜‰


Ready to go!

  1. These books all look so good! I am especially intrigued by A Woman Alone.

    I love hanging out in my apartment…I don’t feel locked down when I am there, since I am surrounded by my books, movies, and even some dolls.

    Enjoy your week!

    1. Hey Tapgurl – I actually used spray paint. They are older cupboards and I don’t want to redo the whole kitchen. I found info on line and went for it. I used Rustoleum which is what they recommended, I took the front faces off and sprayed them in my garage – both sides. 2 years ago I painted them white with white paint but it showed every little fingerprint, dust, etc…

  2. All (3) of these books are new to me and, so intriguing. I wouldn’t know which one to start with. Glad you had a good week on home projects. I washed windows and purchased new curtains – felt so good. Have a good week.

  3. I, too have added these 3 to my TBR stack and look forward to each one of them!! I’m also anxious to hear what your Books Burger & Brews people think of Best Day Ever!! It was a new author for me and I really enjoyed it, shared it with my book club!! Thanks for the recommends (as always!!)

  4. My life is back!!! After 1 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end I almost committed suicide, I was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Mark, which I met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across a lot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. I also came across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Alandre,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr Mark e-mail address. blessedlovetemple@ gmail. com After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48 hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before. Dr Mark is really a gifted man and I will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man… If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try blessedlovetemple@ gmail. com anytime, he might be the answer to your problems.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
