4.5 stars-- Trailblazer (Cowboys & Harvey Girls #1) by Anna Schmidt

Oh my! Anna Schmidt never fails at delivering a knock out read that simply captivates.
The Gist: Grace has taken a job out west working as a waitress at a railway restaurant. She wants a little adventure and desperately needs to earn money to help her family back home. She most certainly does not need to get distracted by a pretty cowboy with dreams of his own.

[meme] Ooop! I forgot a week! All the Things...


Yall I'm worn out. It was a long (two) weeks. Nothing bad just a little of everything. I skipped posting last week mainly because I was lazy and then when I finally got around to finishing the meme post it was time for this week's meme post. lol So they're combined. 

Mom is doing great! She's home and behaving post surgery. She said it's not as bad as expected and no worse than it was pre-surgery so that's good. Thank you for all the prayers for her. Lotus is home, too, but having a little struggle. She's 19 and mom is worried.

The food pantry was fine mostly. Nothing really notable. USO as well. Good to see the guys as usual.

Buy The Book-- New Book Releases & Sales!


Oh my! Lots of new (and recent) pretties!

4 stars-- Hard Sell (21 Wall Street #2) by Lauren Layne

Oh dear. Enemies to lovers, indeed!
The Gist: Matt and Sabrina? Well they hate each other. Probably. They sure fight like cats and dogs whenever they within arms distance of each other. But Matt has a problem. His reputation and his job are on the line after a wild trip to Vegas and he needs his image cleaned up. Namely...settling down with a good woman. Sabrina? Well she's the best "fixer" out there. Much to her dismay the only solution to this problem is for her to play the part of that "good woman".

Blog All About It: August -- The Skies of Cary

One town. 31 days.
The Skies of Cary.

For August our prompt was sky. I thought on it and decided to embark on an adventure. I do believe this post took more time than any other post on the blog. 31 days and at least an hour each day dedicated to sky hunting. Some days 2-3 hours.

I wanted to show the many faces of my town. Things I was doing. Places I go. Some were just while I was out running errands. Some were adventures to places I've never visited. Some rather plain. Some spectacular. All beautiful in their own way. It's so easy to miss the beauty around us.

All are within my town limits. They're as I took them. No editing or filters. I think 2 I cropped them just a little to fit better (they were wonky) but other than that these were the skies of Cary in August 2019.

The Monthly Herd-- August-- How is it over already?!!


And August is OVER! It was a busy month. So. Some highlights!
  • We had some scary rain a couple times. One I got stuck between two flooded out roads. Took me 45 minutes to get 4 miles home. Eek!
  • bought a fancy new camera! First real camera in probably 10 years. It's amazing!
  • Did a ton of gardening! Worked on some new beds, grew a cantaloupe! started a few new projects
