Happy Sunday everyone, September is here and I am ready for Autumn. It’s a rainy one in Jersey and I plan on reading and crocheting in between a few household chores today.

On a sad note, I can’t even look at the news anymore concerning the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey . Not that it should take a natural disaster to do it, but it really makes you stop and appreciate what you have and remember to live in the moment, because it can all be gone in an instant.

Crochet-wise, I went to the craft store last night and picked up two skeins of yarn for a hat and infinity scarf set. This sign says it all.

Knight on the Texas Plains author guest post and book giveaway

CVR Knight on the Texas Plains

Hello everyone. Please join me in welcoming Linda Broday author of Knight on the Texas Plains as she stops by today while on virtual tour to discuss her writing space.
First, a bit about the book, which I will be reviewing soon. How sweet is that cover? After the guest post you can find out how to enter to win your own copy of Knight on the Texas Plains.

About the book:

He’ll do whatever it takes

To keep them safe

Duel McClain has lost everything he’s ever loved: his wife, his son, his sense of self. But when a strange twist of fate—and a poker game he’ll never forget—leaves an innocent little girl in his care, Duel vows to defend his new family to his very last breath. If only he knew a single thing about taking care of babies…

Just as Duel swears his life can’t get any more complicated, a beautiful woman stumbles into the light of his campfire, desperate for help. Jessie Foltry is hungry, tired, and running for her life. She agrees to help Duel care for the child in exchange for his protection, even as she fights to guard her broken heart. But Duel will do whatever it takes to make Jessie see that the Texas plains have more than one kind of knight, and perhaps their salvation is closer than either of them could have dreamed…

Happy Sunday all and Happy 4th of July weekend. Summer is in full swing here with high temps although we do still have alot of rain as well. I’ve been away from blogland for a few weeks due to the usual busy workdays, my family and now the summer weather beckons so I’ve been enjoying it as much as I can. The beach photos in this post are from our recent mini-vacation. That sunset stole my breath away the two nights we were away at the beach. It is nice to stop and just enjoy the beauty found in nature.

On a bookish note, I fully blame work on my lack of reading these last few weeks, sitting at the computer all day crunching numbers just leaves my eyes and my brain too tired to focus on reading when I get home. I did manage to read I Am Legend last week and it was a good one. I randomly picked it up off my shelves in an attempt to get back on reading track. Hopefully I can enjoy reading more when I’m on vacation this summer.

I want to read these books in July:

Knight on the Texas Plains (Texas Heroes book 1) by Linda Broday is due for review on August 1st so I need to get to it. It looks good.

Happy Sunday, it is gorgeous here in Jersey this weekend. It feels like real June summertime these past few days with temps in the 90’s. I’ll enjoy it while it lasts because the forecast is saying rain for the end of this upcoming week and the entire next weekend. I figured I’d get my Sunday Post up early today before I head out to a yearly craft/arts/food outdoor festival that we like to visit.

It has been hectic at work so it was a slow reading week for me. I’m still reading An Almond for a Parrot, slowly though.

Happy Sunday everyone, it is a gorgeous morning here in Jersey. We are supposed to get rain around noon though so I think I’ll go read outside a little after I’m finished with this post. I planted sunflowers this week on one of the sunny days and I have got my fingers crossed with those. It has been a few years since I planted them. They can be so delicate the first few weeks, once they sprout if a hard rainfall comes, forget it, they die crushed by the rain. I use the mammoth sunflower seeds and there are years they grow to over six feet tall, then some summers they don’t make it at all. I also planted my usual marigold, morning glory and zinnia seeds a few weekends ago. Those I plant each summer and are they are easier to grow. I’ll share pics once they bloom.

On a different note, I was hooked on a Netflix Documentary called The Keepers this past week and I watched all seven episodes in two days. It’s hard to say that I recommend this real crime documentary because it is very disturbing especially the first hand accounts of victims, but if you like watching real crime dramas unfold, yes I recommend it.
