I'm a day behind in getting this post out - forgive me, please. I have no excuse except that I was home alone and I couldn't pass up the quiet reading time!
The week was a good one - all around. My hubby got back from paradise - he had a great time even though he said that parts of his seminars were incredibly boring and it was all he could do not to fall asleep.
The girls had a great time on Halloween. Halloween is their favorite holiday and they just love everything about it. The decorations, the spooky movies, the dressing up. Unfortunately I sucks and when I was taking pictures I didn't realize that the camera was taking the pictures but it was in video mode. Arg. So some came out very blurry. My oldest would NOT let me re-take the pictures cuz she just didn't have time for that - whatever. Yes, that's Bat Girl there in the mask and my oldest was Bad Spirit (basically a cheerleading costume with a skull and crossbones on it - again, whatever)
My kids have already gone through all their candy - all 6 pieces that I let them keep. I know I'm a horrible mom! Ok - not really. I let them keep their 6 pieces then I have them put the candy on the porch and The Great Pumpkin comes and takes it and then leaves a gift in its place to say thank you. Then the Great Pumpkin takes the candy to all the kids who were too sick to go trick or treating.
I actually take the candy to my church where they use it in the lunches that they make for the adults and kids with AIDS. The candy goes to a good cause and I get it out of my house. My kids get some candy but they also get a gift - which is a win/win for everyone IMO.
I hope you all had a great week as well! Here's what I read this week and I'm pretty much holding you in suspense on a couple of them:
The Englor Affair by J. L. Langley. Review a couple of posts back - loved it!
Demon's Kiss by Eve Silver. This was my first foray into anything by this author. Check out my review tomorrow.
The Decadent Duke by Virginia Henley. You can read all about what I thought in my review on The Book Binge, um sometime soon. I'll post when it goes up.
Into the Fire by Suzanne Brockmann. The latest in the Troubleshooters series was a great book. I just love Brockmann's writing and I get so into her stories. This was mostly about Vinh Murphy and his best friend Hannah. Throw in a little Decker, Sophia, Danny Gillman and of course Izzy Zanella who is just a stand up kind of guy and you have the makings of a wonderful book. I can't wait for the next installment, Dark of Night, to come out at the end of January.
