Thankful Thursday!!

Aren't you glad that it's Thursday?  I mean come on, who doesn't like the day before Friday and the day after Wednesday?  It's a great day!

1.  I'm most especially thankful for my husband today.  I won't say any more than that for fear of repeating myself, because let's face it, he's awesome and I could talk about him all day.  LOVE YOU, JOEL!!!

2.  I'm thankful for my new ability to focus on the things that are going well in school as opposed to the not so well.  I think part of that is because of Joel seeing our school day twice this past week and then giving me an honest evaluation of the situation.  Honestly, I don't know how anyone could do it completely by themselves with out the invested support of another adult.

3.  I'm thankful for my girlfriends.  From all over the world and right here at home.  You are all wonderful women and I love interacting with each and everyone of you!

4.  I'm thankful that I learned how to knit, because it's let me make some pretty cool stuff.

5.  I'm thankful for generous gifts, even if I'm not quite sure if it's exactly what I want.

6.  I'm ever so thankful that my nephew is gaining weight and continues to grow!

7.  I'm thankful for warm beverages on cold days.

What are you thankful for?

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
