YAY!!!! It’s Friday and the Friday Finds are up (I’ll add more throughout the day as I find them) and my weekend is here, and my coffee is ready and waiting and I. Feel. Happy! In fact, since I haven’t done a three things in the last week or so, let’s do one today. 😀
1.) I just got a new dining room set that I love. I can’t stop staring at it. It’s all set up with pretty dishes and placements on top, like in a magazine. Well… not THAT pretty, but quite pleasing indeed.
2.) My Christmas Tree is still up and I let it shine and sparkle every evening. I’m keeping it up until Three Kings Day (January 6th – supposedly it’s good luck) and then I’m taking it down.
3.) My sister is still here (one more week left of her visit as of today and then she goes home) and we’re both Keto and she’s been making us some amazing dishes!!! Yesterday we had shrimp stir fry.

AUDIOBOOK L VERS!
For those going on a road trip soon, or maybe you’ve got some projects that require both hands this weekend but still allows you to “listen”… check out the free audible trial + 2 free audiobooks deal —>
R: Renee …My new obsession with audio books continues. I’m now finding things to do around the house just so I’ll have an excuse to “read.” Not that there’s ever a lack of things to do. I just don’t usually do them.
- AND! Here’s the fun-tool again! —> Find out which of YOUR Kindle books are available as audiobooks at a BARGAIN-PRICE! <— This thing is so cool (Amazon calls it “Matchmaker“)! It’s an Amazon feature, that scans all of your Kindle books and will list all of the ones you have that are also available as an audiobook at a discounted price (not normal audiobook prices). This way, you can switch back and forth, seamlessly between your ebooks and your audiobooks. VERY COOL!
- The Hating Game: A Novel by Sally Thorne <— R says try it in audiobook format!
R: I tried reading The Hating Game twice too and then listened to the audio and that was perfect. The narrator is so good, I think she makes the book.
