Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, everyone—I hope you’re having a great week!

This week, I AM HAPPY that The Kittehs are happy.  I ordered a bunch of Matatabi catnip for them—all the way from Malaysia, for heaven’s sake!—& it cost me an arm & a leg.  The catnip itself isn’t all that expensive, but the overseas shipping will kill you every time. :Cukoo   But the minute it arrived, The Kittehs started circling like sharks.  I gave them each a little treat of their own (it comes in fruit, sticks, powder, & leaves, so there was plenty to go around) & they spent hours drooling all over the place.  Happy, happy kitty cats.   Definitely worth the cost.  But that’s their Christmas present for the next three years! :evilmonkey

I AM HAPPY that I finally, finally finished reading Danse Macabre.  Granted, I’d started it, then had to stop to read another book (for a quote :happysun ) in the middle, but it was such a long book, & if felt like it was taking forever to get through.  So I’m glad just to be done with it so it will stop staring at me day in & day out.

I AM HAPPY, too, that I got to start Sandra Brown’s Tough Customer next.  Man, I love her books; they grab me from page one every single time.  And I’ve been wanting to read this one ever since I finished Smash Cut & found out it was a spin-off.

I AM HAPPY I finally watched When in Rome…& annoyed with myself for not watching it sooner.  I’m not sure why I avoided it for so long, but it was absolutely fabulous.  A little rushed in places, & I’d have liked a wee better ending, but Kristen Bell is adorable & Josh Duhamel is hubba-hubba.

And I am especially happy that the pages for my November 2012 Harlequin Desire, SECRET, LIES & LULLABIES are up already at at Amazon & Barnes & Noble.  No cover or story information yet, but they’re there, which means the book is on its way!!! :chickendance

So how about you?  What awesomenes has taken place in your life this week?  (We’ll also settle for just-okay stuff, if that’s all you’ve got.)

Now to announce the winner of Friday’s Free Book Friday giveaway—Her Bodyguard by Mallory Kane…

:chickendance Tammy Beck!!! :chickendance

Congratulations, Tammy! :patrick3 Please contact me with your mailing information, & I’ll get your book out to you as soon as I can!

      I don’t know who Baby Jenn is. Is she like the US’s Baby Jessica who fell in the well as a baby?

      I’m actually entirely annoyed by the firecrackers folks are setting off already for the 4th of July. Last night was exceptionally bad & the cats were petrified. (Which is why it pisses me off. :evilmonkey ) But I still love & appreciate Independence Day. I just wish it were a little quieter. :bubble

        Baby Jenn is my cousins daughter…. I just got back from the celebrations yesterday.. Tired, but a good time was had by all, including the birthday girl..

    Yay, I’m happy I won Her Bodygaurd!
    I’m happy I got to take my son & niece to the drive-in. We got to watch Brave & then The Avengers both for $15 a car. It’s great living in a small town!
    I’m happy I get to spend the summer with my 3 favorite kids (my son, niece, & nephew)…even when they are driving me crazy arguing.lol :eeee

      Congrats on the book win! :chickendance

      And the drive-in sounds like a treat. Both of those movies are supposed to be really good. Were they? I’m jealous. :patrick2

    I have all sorts of happy news to share this week.

    I am happy I just found out I’m going to be a grandma! My daughter is about 7 weeks pregnant. She and her boyfriend are very happy. I’ve already started eyeing baby clothes. lol

    My nephew and his girlfriend are also having a baby and they snuck out to the justice of the peace to get married last night. Not everyone is happy about this but I am happy that my brother and I are going to be grandparents around the same time and he can’t make fun of me by calling me granny without me calling him gramps..lol

    Happy Sunday. I’m happy I go on vacation tomorrow. :happysun

    Happy Sunday! I’m happy that it’s RAINING!!!! After several days of very HOT temps (I’m not complaining I like it hot) we are getting a very nice storm with rain and thunder and lightning). We desperately need it. This should also prevent me from having to stand outside the next several nights with a garden hose to put out any possible fires and/or kill stupid morons who don’t know that fireworks actually “burn” and we are under a burn ban right now and the highly recommend NOT shooting any off.

    I’m also happy that we had (me, the hub and B’girl, her best friend and Torinator) a blast at Fandomfest. Not happy that if you wanted an autograph and/or photograph it was $30 a pop (which we didn’t pay). I did however come very close to Luke Perry and Bruce Campbell (damn he’s tall!!) and Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees (Parts 4-8) who a certain little girl wanted to meet and then got shy when she saw him). My favorites to talk to though were the three that were there from Weird Science (the two girls that the geeky guys –Michael Anthony Hall and the other guy–liked and the guy who was one of the “cool” guys that reminded me of Robert Downy Jr but wasn’t).
    It’s also a horror-fest so lots of cool zombie stuff and special effect people there.

    I also still love my job!! This week will be my first slow week and I’m glad. I need a week that’s not too mentally challenging.

    I haven’t seen When in Rome yet (however I’ve stocked it on the shelves!!). I’m going to have to check it out!

    Congrats Tammy!!!!
