Loving...
Hot coffee on a cold morning, there's nothing better and Mike makes me a coffee to go every morning before work so that I can enjoy it on the walk to drop off the kids.
Reading...
I am reading Ready Player One again in preparation for reading Armada. I know they are not exactly related like that but that's how I like to read.
Watching...
Still watching Sherlock Holmes but I have now added in Jane the Virgin and rewatching Doctor Who.
Listening To...
90's workout playlists at the gym.  I find nothing more inspiring right now that the music I used to listing to.


Thinking About...
Wedding planning!  It's approaching much faster than I would like and we have so little done. :(

This week I am celebrating the fact that we have a balcony now, I hate when the rain wakes me up but I love watching the storms.

I am also celebrating the fact that we got the kids snowsuit purchases out of the way last weekend, I just heard we are in for flurries this weekend.  Eek!

What are you celebrating this week?

Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

When I was much younger than I am now, I loved nothing more that a good "spooky" story.  I spent many nights laying up in bed reading books that were designed to make your skin crawl and leave you with goose bumps.

My personal favourite author for Young Adult Thrillers was and probably still is Christopher Pike.  Twenty years after reading his books some of them still stand out in my mind in perfect clarity.  The top one would be Remember Me.


Something about Shari's story struck a chord with me that has echoed through the last twenty years, as any good book should I suppose. Sadly when I was a teenager I didn't hold on to as many books as I do now so I spend a lot of time hunting to replace the ones I really wish I had kept. (Sweet Valley High anyone?)

I am giving away a $15 Amazon gift card in the hopes that you can use it to buy a book to be loved as much as I loved this one.

Fall, so many beautiful colours and the weather is gorgeous.



Reading...
All the books, am going through a reading phase.


Watching...
We just started watching Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett.  Really worth the time.

Listening To...
Pop mixes on Google Play, need happy music right now.

Thinking About...
My health, worried that all this medication switching to control my migraines is adversely affecting me.

Halloween!

Wishing...
For nice weather this weekend.

Making Me Happy...
Preparing for Halloween, getting caught up on my pen pal letters.

DANGEROUS TRUTH
Olivia loves everything about Belgium. So far, her humanitarian trip has gone perfectly--that is, until she sees a picture of a man she thinks is her father in the newspaper. The father who abandoned her family nine years ago without a word.

She tries to forget she ever saw his photo. He's forgotten about her, after all. But soon it's apparent that she can't leave without knowing what happened.

Armed with years of hurt and the help of a gorgeous French photographer, she decides to confront him and his secrets once and for all.

Unfortunately, her father seems …

Book hoarder that I am now I wish that I still had my Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley books to share with Cat when she got the right age for them.  That little monkey loves to read almost as much as I did when I was small.
