Happy Sunday! So we’re six days in to 2013—how’s the New Year going for everyone so far? Fabulous, I hope!
This week, I AM HAPPY that I had all of the windows in my office replaced last summer & also some insulation added inside the walls. My office has always been frigidly cold, but even though I often had to wear gloves to type (which wasn’t easy), I was kind of used to it. But this past week, when the temperature has been in the teens & single digits, my office has been pretty much the same temperature as the rest of the house. It’s a shocker every time I walk out here & don’t give a “Brr, it’s cold” shiver. I still run the space heater every once in a while to get the chill off, but it’s a hugely noticeable difference. Fingers crossed this will also help to save on my heating bill!
I AM HAPPY that I’ve started reviewing & proofing “Gimme Shelter” & it’s holding together beautifully. Okay, what I really want to say is that it’s so good, it’s squee-worthy, but since that’s just my possibly biased opinion, I’ll stick with “holding together.” :wink I can’t wait to get it turned in & see what the editor (a new one for me! :prettylights ) thinks.
And I AM HAPPY that I finally got around to watching Despicable Me & How to Train Your Dragon. I know, I know—I’m always so far behind. But they were wonderful. I especially loved Despicable Me, even if it made me really want my own gaggle of Minions.
And Toothless (in Dragon) reminded me so much of my little Pekoe (aka Little Mister Interstate, rescued off I-80)—they’re both black, sweet as a button, & have the same eyes!
How about you? What have you been up to that’s made you happy this week, or what news do you have that you’d like to share? ‘Cause we wanna hear it! :letitsnow

Congrats to Crystal.. I read this book and it was a good one.
I am feeling happy today as it is my oldest niece’s birthday today. She has brought me so much joy, happiness and love in my life. I don’t get to see her as often as I used to, but i saw her at Christmas and we will try to get together a little more this year than we did last year.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday…

Happy Birthday, Kathleen’s niece! :prettylights That’s such a great plan for the new year, too!
I really like LLM’s books, but always come back to Lily & the Major & Daniel’s Bride being my faves, no matter how many others I read. Dang, I loved those books!

That’s so great, Colleen. I love a good chunk of reading time. I got a lot crossed off my To Do list this past week & weekend, but know I’ll be hip deep again before long. :peekaboo

Wow 100th post. Congrats on that too.
I got my little three legged rat this week. He seems to be about 8 weeks old and is the cutest little thing. He gets around really well and likes to climb on Ken and I. He’s my 7th rat right now.
I had to smile when my 21 year old daughter called me up and told me that she finally read a romance book I had given her a couple of years ago…LOL
The really funny thing was, she liked it and asked me if she could borrow a couple more! Of course I have plenty of books she can have and I gave her a cross section of all different types of romance books. Looks like from what she said her genre that she likes is PNR and mostly vampires.
I knew she would come around eventually…bwahahahaha
