Happy New Years, Everyone!



Reservations of the HeartReservations of the Heart by T.B. Markinson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This wasn’t a favorite book for me. I was not fond of the characters all that much. I had hoped for more medical and less romantic angst. The erotica scenes were okay. They were necessary for the plot to move along.

I did find it interesting to watch how jealousy and trust issues played the same as they do in straight books and see some of the reasons they exist in the first case.

It may be me or this time in our lives that the book didn’t work for me. Maybe you will read it and love it. I do like how T.B. Markinson writes her stories. Regardless of how invested I am, I find I must read to the end to see what happens. This one did end nicely.

Oh, and I got this on Kindle Unlimited, so free-ish!

Ta-Da Tuesday


Finally finished! Flexee fine-gauge loom. I don’t know the name of the yarn as there was no label. It was a gift so these are gifts.

I didn’t think a toe-up kitchener cast-on would work, but it was far better than on other looms.

Oh, the graduation of colors didn’t work quite right leaving most of one sock golden and the other very off. So I stole from both outer and inner strands as needed to have the socks match as best as I could. The tinking and frogging to make it about drove me crazy. But I’m happy with the results. And I still have enough yarn for one more hat!

Making Monday


Two hombre socks nearly finished. I think I’ll have enough yarn left over for another hat. I love my Flexee looms and they are perfect for socks! Even toe-up!

Meanwhile, Doctor Who is keeping my distraction levels up and pain levels down. 😎


How to Draw Cute Stuff for Kids: A step by step Drawing Guide for Kids to Learn How to Draw 180 Cutie Stuff in 4 Easy StepsHow to Draw Cute Stuff for Kids: A step by step Drawing Guide for Kids to Learn How to Draw 180 Cutie Stuff in 4 Easy Steps by JAY T
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This a how to draw for children. Yet I learned that drawing things from memory is helpful as we age. It was one of the things tested on the brain-age app on the Game Boy. I found that when I was tired my drawings of the test didn’t fair well. So a little practice book like this can be helpful to everyone. I might look up other books by JAY T to find cute drawings to play with.

You can find a book or two on Amazon but this on isn’t currently available. Any would be great for step by step drawing instructions. And this one was free.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday–Box


When I was young and I saw Boxing Day on my calendar I thought that it was about:

I’m not into sports, except maybe swimming. But I knew that baseball was spring and football was fall. Maybe the day after Christmas was like the championship?

Later I learned that it was a day to box up donations for the poor or even another gift-giving day. That sounds nice. I wish we did that here in the states.

Anyone else look over to an area in your house where there is a stack of boxes? Yeah, living in the country means that we have a lot of UPS deliveries. But now that we have outlawed plastic bags at the stores, we are getting more boxes. We can’t even break them down fast enough. And now I have several gifts that I need to send, yet there isn’t a box the right size.

Since this is a stream, I don’t want to box myself into a certain dialogue. Don’t box me in. Don’t put me in a box.

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “box.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

The Moonlight ChildThe Moonlight Child by Karen McQuestion
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sleep deprivation. I blame that if this review doesn’t turn out to make sense. Since I started reading this, I have been unable to stop reading to go to sleep. This morning, yeah, Christmas morning! I finished the book at 6 AM!

Mysteries are hard for me. They are mostly about murder. As if life wasn’t bad enough, why read about the bad people and the results of killing and lying. But this book wasn’t about murder. Okay, there is one, but it isn’t the focus and seems secondary to everything else.

One of the best things about this book is kindness. I loved all the characters, even the antagonist. And kindness is something each has as a factor in their part of the plot. I was sad to see the book end. It was satisfying, but I’m left wishing I could spend more time in the story and see what happened to each of them after.

This book is available on Kindle Unlimited, but after reading the blurb and wanting to read it, I found I already had 10 books in my KU account, so I bought the book. Well worth it! I may reread it sometime!

By the way, Merry Christmas!
