Busy Monday

Currently Reading: Finished Surprised by Desire last Friday, and was thrilled to see a similarity in the way I handled the issue and the way Katie presented it! Shows great minds think alike, and that we're on the same wavelength:) In about a month, I'll be reading Office Politics. I went through my list Friday night and decided what I'll be reading in the coming weeks:

The Perfect Gift- Ashley Ladd
Redemtion: Incubus- Brynn Paulin

Oct 6: Between a Rock and a Hard On- Cindy Spencer Pape
50 Ways to Hex Your Lover- Linda Wisdom
Rose Quartz- Sandra Cox

Oct 13: Isabella's Diary- Anita Birt
Black on Blonde- Cheryl Dragon
Tempting Tess- Rita Thedford

Oct 20: Confessions of a Nympho- Ashley Ladd
Going Down- Tea Trelawny
Daffodil- Anny Cook

Oct 27: Danger on XY- Vickie Burkholder
Babies in the Bargain- Mona Risk
One of Cindy Spencer Pape's Cowboy books. I'll have to see if they are in any particular order; The Christmas one is up first, but not sure if it's her first Cowboy one, or if they need to be read in any particular order! Suggestion, anyone?

Print Book: I'm on the second DS 9 Rebels book.

First of all, I was saddened by the passing of one of our great movie legends, Paul Newman. I 'fell in love' with him when I was first allowed to watch Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on television. I also saw him in Absence of Malice, when we had to watch the film for a high school class (can't remember if it was psych or social studies!). I was too young to see The Sting in the movie theatre, and still haven't seen that film. Hmm...must correct that oversight.

I've got three more loads of laundry; I did 4 yesterday. But just as we were leaving for church, we got the call that my MIL was being sent to the hospital, to ward off another round of pneumonia. So after lunch, hubby and I headed over and spent an hour with her. She doesn't have pneumonia, but she has a lot of congestion. Don't know how long she'll have to stay.

I've already sent out an email reminder to my friends, family, and readers about my next two signings; now I need to go send out some personal ones to family and friends not on my electronic list! My hubby can't attend; he'll be out of town. And my teens will have to stay home with the toddler. But I'm hoping I have a few people show up!

My application for the artistic grant is due tomorrow, and I've just discovered my pictures don't have enough pixels. And when I downloaded the template the IAC sent, my pics have disappeared from my hard drive! So have to save them again and attempt to attach them. Hopefully everything will work this time!

Family Week?
As noted, last Wednesday, my SIL showed up for a visit, and my dad arrived on Thursday. Friday afternoon, I received a call from my nephew, wanting to know if I was going to be around later that evening! He arrived after the Homecoming Parade and took us out to dinner. Afterwards, we gathered up our swim suits and went swimming in his motel pool. His daughter, Joanna (I've been calling her Jodi) will be 2 years old in another month, and his wife, Tasha, is expecting their 3rd child any day now. So look for an announcement soon:)

I loved Newman too, and of course, Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy. A very handsome man, inside and out.

Poor Paul. But wow did he use his life well!

What EYES! Laser blue and piercing. I loved him. Great actor but ever finer humanitarian.

I would read Cindy's Christmas story first. It's the first in the series. Also check out our Wayback Anthology which comes out in print on Nov. 7th. Wild Wayback Nights has stories by Cindy, Judith Rochelle, Sylvie Kaye and Me. Four yummy cowboy stories set in the same town.

The Christmas one is the first one on my list; just didn't know if they were in any order. Thanks!
