Great Monday!

Slept great, woke to thunder and a cozy day of rain and but no loss of power...........PERFECT!
I finished a few books....finally.....
 This one is a KEEPER!  A wonderful reference for anyone who wants to start or enhance their business.  I'm not doing that now but I might after I move.  I highly recommend this covers every aspect of selling your wares from Etsy to craft fairs; it's all there!
 I actually read 2 of these but forgot to take a pic of the other one.  My method for going through my magazines is I always read one along with my evening reading and I use a highlighter to mark things I want to remember or investigate further.  After I finish reading it, I mark it with a black marker so I know I've read it already.  Then I sit down in front of my pc and look up web addresses that were mentioned and write down other info I want to keep like book titles etc..  After that it goes to the library where they have a "free" bin.  But I've been thinking of taking them to the local nursing home as those people can't get to the library.  I actually never get rid of my MJ magazines but they're the only ones. 
  I finished this book.  It was a good one!  It's part of a series I really like of DIY mysteries by Jennie Bentley.  This is the 4th book in the series and the last one I have.  I'll have to check if there's another one out there yet.  My "book fairy", Sue, usually brings me these. 
 Uh oh...this book came HIGHLY recommended but I am almost half way through and it is not making any sense to me.  Maybe it's because I am such a realist that I can't relate to fantasy or science fiction or what ever you call this book.  Although I did love the Harry Potter books, in my defense.  I will continue to read and see if it becomes clearer or makes any sense to me eventually.   
  I just started this book, another great series by Maggie Sefton who writes about a great group of gals that are friends and their common bond is a knitting shop in Fort Collins, Colorado.  There are recipes and knitting patterns that come with this series.  This is the 7th book in this series and I'm so anal I have to read them in order! LOL!  This series and the DIY ones are mysteries and there's always a murder to be solved but nothing awful that would keep you up at night.  I don't do gore or psychological thrillers.
 I got a nice dinner made tonight...a new recipe that was on FB.  I'll  share the recipe later as I just ate it and it was delicious!  I used fresh green beans and new potatoes from the Farmer's Market and it uses a marinade that you make with lemon and garlic and olive oil.  It was wonderful and healthy!  This was before it went in the oven and I was so hungry that I forgot to take a picture when it came out! LOL!
 I had a nice glass of my favorite red while I was making dinner and now I'm off to do some "craftiness"!  Have a great evening!  I'll post the recipe tomorrow...promise! 


  1. I think I'm going to look into those books about the DIY mysteries. The covers look so interesting. That dish you make looks delicious! Please please share the recipe when you can :)

  2. Lots of interesting reading there.
