FUN FACTS WITH THE CONSTITUTION

WE are gearing up for the July 4th celebrations tomorrow and I’m feeling a bit ambivalent about the entire thing.

I would love to know how many people have actually read the Bill of Rights, The Constitution or our Declaration of Independence. Have you?

Now I’m going back to reading Boom Town!

Reading and Recovering

1490981717551.jpg

Good Morning! Home from the hospital and snuggled up with a lot of books!

The surgery on Monday was a Scleral Fixation of a Four-Haptic Intraocular Lens Using Gore-Tex Suture. Which basically means since the usual way wasn’t an option for me, they made tiny incisions in the white part and threaded a basket with a lens in it. Yep it is gross. It looks gross. But I now have a lens. For two years now I have not. Just procedure after procedure. All from a bad contact lens. Fresh out of the box.

Dr. Davis said I look great for 24 hours out of surgery. I’m still not over the anesthesia. That was bad. My throat is still sore from the intubation tube and I threw up for a straight 24 hours, but I think my head has cleared and now we shall go back to 4 different drops every 4 hours.

So I’m reading rather slowly. The good thing is the postman brought books!!

I’m taking this week to recover but will be checking in on you all!

“WE’LL SING IN THE SUNSHINE…”

Happy Sunday! It’s a beautiful day to be outside, at the lake or the pool with a good book and a good drink!

I’m bouncing between two books right now. Rush by Lisa Patton and The Vintage TeaCup Club by Vanessa Greene. Two very different books.

Hard to believe it is almost May. I have a busy week ahead so today I’m taking my books and heading to the pool to read and hopefully get some sun on my pale legs!

If you’ve read a good book lately, let me know! And enjoy your Sunday.

The Beauty of Spring and New Life

1489338645786

Spring is popping up all over today! Birds chirping, sun burning off the haze and should be in the 70’s today.

Today I’m finishing up    Humor and sorrow join together in Jamie Weisman’s captivating debut novel—the story of an interfaith wedding from the perspectives of its (adoring, envious, resentful, hilarious) guests!

And it is set in Atlanta, Georgia. How could I say no? Georgia girls stick together! So far I’m laughing a lot.

What are you doing this Palm Sunday? Anyone march for life yesterday? I would love to hear about that if you did!

Good Reading and Warm Breezes!

HELLO SPRING, We’ve Been Waiting For You!

1490030630636

It is definitely Spring here. My favorite color of green is Spring Green. That green that pops out on trees promising leaves and flowers. Daffy Dillies are springing up on everyone’s lawn and there is just a newness to everything.

Spring Break is almost over. (Choir of angels sings) There are so many great books coming out this Spring. Some new authors I’ve found and some old favorites so today we are going to laze in the sun and read. And not Run,Spot,Run.

The tiny terrorists are in the living room whispering so I only have a few minutes before all out war erupts over the chalk!

Y’all have a really good day and take some time to notice Spring!

AND GREEN IS MY FAVORITE TODAY

greenthoughts

Since I don’t have a Book Review due today, I thought I would just take all those Blog Awards and mush them together and answer the questions!

How did this Blog begin? Because people get annoyed when you are constantly giving them your opinion on what they are reading while in public.

How many books do you read? A lot. And most of them don’t even make it to the blog for one reason or another. Good or Bad, the ones I’m obligated to do go on the Blog.

Things about me:

I hate cats. Horrible allergies but I really just don’t like them although people compare me to one.

I don’t eat meat.

My closet is organized by color/fabric/function. I am compulsively neat.

I despise Romance Books. Same man with the same abs on every cover.

I have a very morbid sense of humor.

I have no patience with pretentious people. Or as my Momma calls it people who put on airs. Favorite saying to those people? You’re pretty uppity for someone who doesn’t even have a job.

I love tea! Shocking, I know.

I play the piano. 

I ride horses.

I do not do reviews through the author. Don’t ask.

I own 23 formals. I have a life at night that I know nothing about it would seem.

My favorite color is pink. And Green.

Favorite Movies….Resident Evil, Any Avengers, Gone With The Wind, The Secret of Roan Inish, and Saving Grace ( the UK one) the original Paren Trap

Favorite Music….Halestorm,Paramour, Post Malone, Imagine Dragons, Grunge, Celtic. Basically anything except Country.

So there you go. All of them rolled into one. Now I’m off to review the new LSAT Study Guide. Exciting stuff here! And if anyone needs any study guides for tests, let me know! They need to go to a new home.
