Happiness - Week 4

Some people do not understand how a book can make me happy. 
(Namely, my husband. Although for the record, 
I did ignore him on my first morning home
so that I could finish the book. But still...)

Anyway, I waited patiently for book 10 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series to be released. It just so happened that it was set to be delivered to my kindle while I was in Vegas for a conference. The magic of my iPhone continues to surprise me (mainly because I never bothered reading the manual that came with it). I had started reading the book on my kindle, yet later that day had some time in between sessions. I checked the kindle app on my phone, and it automatically synced to my last location read on my kindle. 

It's magic, I tell you.

The next day, I had time before my flight left:

 I read on the flight. 
And the next morning after the kids went to school
(much to the chagrin of my husband).

The book was all I could hope for and more. There is something about the Warden's writing that keeps me glued to the page no matter what is going on around me.  Plus, not only did Tohr's heart heal, we saw a lot of John Matthew and Xhex.  The Band of Bastards played a role too - and now I wonder, who will Layla's HEA be? Throe or Xcor? Before she announced it on FB, I knew the next book would be Blay and Qhuinn's.  Thank goodness! It's about time they were able to find true happiness. And I got my Wrath fix as well, although I was quite nervous during the van ride back to the mansion.  

So to recap - things that make me happy - books, the brothers, and alone time that allowed me to read a 671 page book in two and a half days. Because seriously, that hasn't happened since Connor was born.

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.

The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
