Good morning! It’s -4 here with wind chill of -26. *shivers*

I think I need to stay in a blankie and read all day!

That new K.A. Tucker up there might be good one for “coming of age” for the levels challenge.

MichelleS January 21, 2019 at 9:01 AM

Good Morning. It’s in the upper 30′s here. I’m reading A Place Without You, Jewel E Ann’s latest. So so good. Stay up too late reading good.

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 9:31 AM

Good morning everyone!! It’s cold here too. Woke up to frosted grass. SERIOUSLY frosted.

Jenn January 21, 2019 at 10:10 AM

Good Morning :-)

Maryse I am so jealous…I want to be home too-cooking and reading.

Leslie-we are currently 0 with windchill feels like -20…We still have lake affect snow happening which did not make my commute into work very easy this morning.

MichelleS-I loved that JEA book-glad you are loving it.

Leslie M January 21, 2019 at 10:19 AM

Michelle, I love when a book is so good you stay up reading it.

I want to cook soup but I don’t have all ingredients. No way I can even go to store. I live on side road covered in snow and have crappy car. Hopefully hubs will feel like driving me later. Oh well, it’s a lschool holiday so I will play video games with my son.

Maryse, you got a frost! Oh no! I hope all your plants/gardens ok. I hate when Florida gets frost and citrus crops get ruined.

Jenn January 21, 2019 at 11:30 AM

3 Things-

1-I am wanting a book so bad that is not out yet; The Executive K.I. Lynn *stomps foot and pouts*

2-Currently reading Colleen Hoover’s “Maybe Now” and so far not sure how I feel about it. I am 60% in.

3-OMG I just found out I can make hard boiled eggs in 5 minutes in the Insta-Pot and they come out perfectly with the shell basically just sliding off and you don’t lose like half your egg trying to get the shell off. This just sold me and I am ordering one. I hard boil about a dozen of eggs weekly-for egg salad, devil eggs, spinach salad or just to eat as a snack with a little salt and pepper. This makes my life so much simpler. How did I not know this.

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 11:35 AM


YESSSSS I always make my boiled eggs in my instant pot and they come out PERFECT. No green ring around the yolk.


Maryse January 21, 2019 at 11:36 AM

Leslie M…

I think it didn’t “hard freeze” so everything should be fine (but probably angry). LOL!!!!!

Amy January 21, 2019 at 11:52 AM

MEATBALLS!!!!!! Love, love, LOVE meatballs!! :D

Three things:

1. Mid thirties here and no snow so I have to go in to work…but hey, time and a half makes it worth it!

2. Mississippi pot roast for supper tonight. Mmmmm, I can already taste the pepperoncinis…

3. It should be slow today so I can finish up When Ashes Fall. Gotta love getting paid to read some days. *smirk*

Amy January 21, 2019 at 12:04 PM

MichelleS…that one is great!! I love Jewel E Ann, and I know I should finish the first Jack and Jill book but I just struggled with the H’s POV in it and I have no idea why. *sigh*

Okay, so you guys know how I occasionally get squirted (or sometimes sprayed) with blood at work. Welllllll, the other day a man came in and was acting SO FREAKING DRAMATIC! Not nervous, which I completely understand, but dramatic. When I inserted the needle into his holy-moly-huge vein, the guy whimpered and jerked his freaking arm away…resulting in HIM getting sprayed with blood. I’m not bad at what I do, and people often tell me they barely felt the stick, so I know it couldn’t have been that bad. After my lecture and walking around with blood all over him, hopefully next time (if there is a next time) he’ll man up and hold still. :P

Nancy Parken January 21, 2019 at 12:51 PM

THE SCRIPTED DUET by Christy Pasture is now Re-Released & Re-Edited for 99 cents limited time deal.

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 2:02 PM

Just read Amy’s blood-tale.



Psssst. Maryse has a phobia of veins and sticking them. Amy you are STRONG because I would have been HIM. LOL!!!!!!

Janie January 21, 2019 at 2:30 PM

Happy Monday!

Ohh, this is my first three things!!

1. It is currently 24 degrees and everything is covered in snow. It’s pretty but also miserable lol!

2. I’m currently reading my first Pepper Winters book called Ruin and Rule. I’m about halfway through and kind of loving it.

3. I got a new planner and it’s so fun. I went with the Happy Planner. It’s so cute and perfect for what I needed.

Steph N January 21, 2019 at 3:25 PM

Maryse, where are you in Florida? I’m just outside of Tampa! I’m cold today! lol

Nothing really interests me up there at the moment. Reading the Great Alone for a book club and while good, kinda not really into either. Hoping it picks up with something soon.

R. Renee January 21, 2019 at 3:27 PM

1. I made the pesto chicken the other night and threw a spaghetti squash in the oven an hour before cooking ended, then mixed in the squash and cheeses. It was delish! I halved the cheese though, and next time I’d cut the butter. With the oil from the pesto I don’t think it’s needed. Keto friendly!!

2. My husband told me to go shopping and get my nails done for my trip this weekend and I seriously think I’m too lazy to go. Even though I have absolutely nothing to wear and I’m pretty sure my nails are considered weapons at this point.

3. I drank a Zima last night and let me tell you there is a reason those are extinct.

Tessa January 21, 2019 at 3:45 PM

1. I wish I was there with Janie where it was 24 degrees and snow. Currently, here it’s 57 and bright and sunny. So, for me, it’s already cold, but I want the snow too!

2. Fae? Fae? Ooh, and KU? *clicks first Stariel book*

3. Amy, from the other post, Nicole is in her 30s. My niece is only 6 years younger than me. :) But both are awesome, and nuts.

Grey January 21, 2019 at 5:07 PM

Three Things…

1) I refuse to look at the thermometer anymore. This morning it was -5 with a -26 wind chill, since then, no more peeks at the weather. Well that’s a lie, when I was in the car, it told me it had warmed up to a balmy 1. FFS.
2) I was off from work today and ran my kids around like a chicken with my head cut off to various and sundry appointments. Ortho and dr’s for 3. Teaching the 16 year old to drive in NY snow. Good times. She was good though, it’s important, she’s gotta learn.
3) Food! I need to look into zoodles. So far so good on the Keto business, other than I’m actually having a hard time hitting my calories and fat for the day… recipes. Hit me with them. Although, I have to throw in that I’m allergic to seafood and don’t do eggs. I know, i’m so complicated.

Tessa January 21, 2019 at 5:09 PM

For anyone who loves reverse harem romance, Variant Lost by Kaydence Snow is a new series that though the beginning is a little slow, it was one of the best I’ve read.

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 5:17 PM

Steph N I’m just outside of Tampa too! Citrus county!!

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 5:18 PM

R… that sounds OMG DELISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 5:19 PM

Er… not the Zima. ;) The Pesto chicken. *snort* :P

Maryse January 21, 2019 at 5:20 PM

Grey! Make an avocado a daily snack (or integrate it in a meal) if you can stand it.

I LOVE them, and they are almost 300 calories (the Hass avocados) and the PERFECT fat, plus also all sorts of other good healthy things in it.

Tasha J January 21, 2019 at 5:31 PM

Reading My Torin- trying to anyway. So far so goood. J is driving me crazy though. He’s been so clingy for the past month, where I can’t leave the room without whining, crying and eventually hanging on my legs until I pick him up. Then it was I couldn’t even walk across the room and now I can’t even sit without him standing and whining and crying on me until I pick him up. And to top all that wonderful behavior off, he’s been sick all weekend and so it’s extra. And yes, I feel terrible, but my gosh. Its like this even in bed. I cosleep- and he’s on me all night whining and tossing and turning. I need space so badly. And no one can ever watch him to give me space Bc he won’t eat. 4 more months is a constant chant in my head. That’s when I don’t have to do bottles anymore, but I swear, this challenging boy will be just as much a pain with big ppl food. Here’s to hoping I won’t stress as much. Sorry for the rant!

MichelleS January 21, 2019 at 5:54 PM

Tessa – “Fae”???? Let me go back & look at that list again…

Grey January 21, 2019 at 5:57 PM

Rant away, Tasha! You’re entitled! I’m sorry we all don’t live closer so that we could come and help out! Sicky babes are hard. New mommyhood is hard…it’s isolating, people don’t put this stuff in the manual. **hugs**

Nay January 21, 2019 at 9:38 PM

Me too, MichelleS–”Fae”???? also checking list again…

Bless you, Tasha! Is he teething? I can’t remember exactly how old J. is and if he’s already been going through the bad teething phase?? My Waylon is already 5 months tomorrow, which I can’t believe!

Has anyone here read any S.M. Soto books? I seem to be hearing about her more and more, so I’m wondering if anyone has an opinion. Both Blood and Chaos (listed above) and the first book in the series, Deception and Chaos, are on sale for $0.99. I’m going to read the sample of the first book…

Tasha J January 21, 2019 at 9:48 PM

Yep, definitely teething on top of this cold, I think it is. I’m not sure if he has a sore throat or just mucous in his chest (yucky cough). He’s 8 months and just got his 1st tooth a few weeks ago. The other 2 have had a cough so I assume it’s that. It’s been a super snotty month for everyone.

Alison January 22, 2019 at 12:33 PM

I can’t wait to get my hands on several of these!! Oh, and PJs & a book for me, too!!
