Hi Everyone!

Happy Weekend!!!!!

Hope everyone had a good week. No big plans this weekend, getting clutter out of the way for when Teri P comes down next weekend to visit with me for a few days!
I also plan on reading and doing some grocery shopping this weekend.

I've been on a Romantic Suspense kick....Purplenancy lent me Hot Property by Lynn Raye Harris and I liked it so much I read the second book in the series Hot Mess. I also read the new Liz Carlyle book In Love With A Wicked Man...an enjoyable read. I just started the second book in Stephanie Tyler's Section 8 series -- Untreatable. I may start Feel the Heat by Kate Meader, the first book in her Feel The Heat Series.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Enjoy the weekend Ladies!

Hi all.
I am going to have a nice quiet weekend, I hope! I have a couple of books to pick from and just am not sure what I feel like reading..I think I may be in a mini slump. I may start the latest Chelsea Cain book... I don't know how much more of Gretchen Archie can take..she keeps on escaping and going on a rampage again.

My cousin will be coming in from Scranton on Saturday. I think he is feeling nostalgic and wants to be with family for awhile. His mom, one of my favorite aunts, passed away and I think he needs a sense of family around him. So we should have some fun going over our family memories.

Sunday will be Steelers (can't wait til they get to playing together as a team again) and that is about it.

Hope you all have a great weekend and happy reading.

Hi All,

Right now I'm reading...

Just One Evil Act by Elizabeth George (10/13)
[Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers - 18]
700+ pages.
Scotland Yard - Kidnapping in Italy
Slow going because the book is so heavy to hold.

Paulette, I saw earlier that Chelsea Cain has a new series in the works that NBC is planning on putting on TV. Don't know if this means the end of Archie and Gretchen.

Here's the link and a short description...

http://tv.yahoo.com/news/nbc-adapting-c ... 01189.html


One Kick tells the story of Kick Lannigan, who made national news as a child after being abducted, and later rescued, in an Elizabeth Smart-type kidnapping. Determined to never fall victim again, Kick has trained herself in martial arts and firearms. She finds her calling when a mysterious billionaire offers her the resources and high-tech tools she needs to hunt down predators and rescue other abductees.

No plans for this weekend but the yardwork is always coaxing me out of the house, plus there is winterizing to do always.

--Janie

I'm still slogging my way through Vivian Arend's High Risk. Things have been in high turmoil again here this week so I haven't been reading much. I'll probably have to work this weekend. Chuck and I had anniversary plans for this weekend but we cancelled them. He got kicked out of the sober house and is now looking for a new place to live. He'll probably have to rent an apartment. :cry:

Kyle, I'm sorry you are going thru such a tough time. The road back to sobriety can have many setbacks. It's hard to see a loved one struggle. I hope that you have a good support system to keep you encouraged.

Ditto. ((HUGS)) to you Kyle. Continued prayers for Chuck & your whole family. Peace to you my friend.

I hate it when I lose my reply after making a long blab. lol I think my computer was telling me something.

This Veterans weekend will be a H.S. Varsity soccer tournament that my DH coaches while my youngest daughter is the team manager.

I hope to be reading "Storm Front" by John Sandford or catching up on my DVR'd TV shows.... (The White Queen, Covert Affairs & Grimm)

Thank you to our Veterans!

Janie, thanks, the series looks like one I am really going to love. I hope it isn't on a station that I can't get, like Showtime. I am looking forward to a new series by Chelsea, too. Hope Archie has a happy ending.

I'm in a bit of a funk and I'm not sure why. I can't seem to get myself to read The Strange I Know by Andrea Kane (not even sure that's the title). It's good but I don't want to read anything. All I want to do is sit in front of the TV and there's nothing on!

This is the weekend before DS's birthday. He will be 33 so I'm feeling really old too. My hip hurts which is worrysome and all of a sudden I feel not so young. Kyle, I'm sending prayers and ((hugs)) too. I wish I could send some encouraging words but I'm really cranky.

Kyle--my prayers and heart go out to you. Hang in there. Hugs to you.

Hubby is gone on a week hunting trip to South Dakota. My oldest son is gone to NYC on a job interview this weekend

.....So party at my house :lol: Everyone is invited!!

I am spending the whole weekend with my nose in a book--I will have do decide which one to read.. and watching Jane Austen movies...P&P, Persuasion, Mansfield Park. I might even throw in some brooding Wuthering Heights or maybe Jane Erye.

I didn't get a lot of reading done this weekend. Friday was spent Christmas shopping. I am one of those people who likes to be done with at least 90% of my shopping BEOFRE Thanksgiving. :)

Saturday was spent on the road with my sister taking our oldest nephew back to college. He goes to school about 100 miles away. So it was a fun mini-road trip.

I am however about 2/3 of the way thru reading DEADLY HEAT by Richard Castle. Yes, THAT Richard Castle. :P

Gosh, late to the party again! What can I say...one of my coworkers has the flu, so I worked for her today. For the past 6 weeks my on call supplemental hours have been quite a few hours! Oh well, there is an end in sight and I have extra shopping $'s for when I am at Dani's this coming weekend! You all know I've had the summer from hell, with my dad being so ill and moving in to the care center. So it's a pretty major thing that he's feeling well enough that I feel OK with leaving for several days.

Reading wise, I am getting caught up with Joann Ross, and am on the last Shelter Bay book Castaway Cove. Love this series, and she's going to keep it going, and start publishing herself.

Not much else going on. Fall is definitely here. Cold today, time to get out the winter coats. UGH!! Ciji, Hawaii looks better every winter!

Kyle, you are always in my prayers. It's early in the game for you yet, so you have to know - and have hope, that better days are ahead. This part takes a Loooooong time to struggle through. You have your group, stick with them, and same goes for your kids. I remember for about a year I had to tell my regular friends that I just could not be with them for awhile, as what we were going through was nothing that they could help with, and I needed my group more than them at the time. They all understood, and some even had family issues that they never told anyone about. So my little circle of friends dealing with addictions became larger, and honest to God I had someone from every walk of my life supporting me. It does get very much more uplifting with each step - or baby step - you take forward, and some days feels like you are spinning our wheels. But it does get better. Take care of YOU!!
