Sunday Delight: A Bit of Good

Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope you all had a great and productive week full of fun.  I had a good week.  Last week was my honey''s birthday.  We had a great time together at a comedy and Blues show along with a wonderful dinner at Cheesecake Factory.  Compliments of an amazing "girlfriend".  LOL!  
I thought I would have had time to get some blogging done but that just didn't happen.  I am going to try and give it another try this week. 
And I am happy...it just started raining!!  YEAH!

Now that I have a bit of time to get a few things off of my to do list, I figured I would start with my growing list of book reviews I need to get to.  I did this event in February and I completed all of the book reviews I had to do.  Now I am back to being back logged on reviews.  As of right now I have 3 reviews to do.  1 in draft form to complete and 2 quicky reviews to do as well.  
But by the time this event starts I might have 3 quickies and 4 reviews to do.

Christmas in July Giveaway Hop

Announcing the “Christmas in July” Giveaway Hop
July 22nd to 31st
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Laurie Here
Christmas seems like a million years from now.  But you and I know that it will be here before you know it!  So why not get a Christmas book to get you in the mood a bit early this year.  
This a great giveaway hop just for that!
Enter to win a copy of

Two people are about to discover that when it comes to finding love, sometimes Christmas magic isn’t enough…sometimes it takes a pesky orange cat named Ambrose.

When a guy is in trouble, he starts making deals with his Creator…and Ambrose the cat is no exception. In danger of losing his ninth and final life, Ambrose makes a desperate plea to the universe.  He’ll do anything—anything!—if he can just survive and enjoy a nice long, final life. His prayer is answered when a stranger comes along and saves him—and now it looks like he has to hold up his end of the bargain.
The stranger turns out to be a firefighter named Zach, who’s in need of some serious romantic help. If Ambrose can just bring Zach together with Merilee, the nice lady who works at Pet Palace, it’s bound to earn him a healthy ninth life.  Unfortunately for Ambrose, his mission is a lot harder than he ever thought.  Merriliee is way too shy to make the first move on a ladies man like Zach, and Zach thinks he’s all wrong for a nice girl like Merrilee.  Now it’s going to take all of Ambrose’s feline wiles—and maybe even a good old fashioned Christmas miracle—to make them both realize that what they’re looking for is right in front of their eyes.

Sunday Delight: Trying to Get Back At It

Happy Sunday everyone!
 Today is the second day of Bloggiesta and I have knocked out all the easy stuff on one blog so far.  That just leaves me a day of not so easy stuff, like writing reviews and post for this blog now.  I am thrilled to be able to take a minute to do all of this blog work but I honestly need a week long Bloggiesta to really get everything I want to do DONE!  Mostly it's the review to do list that is killing me.  I have 7 reviews to do. (2 of them are mini reviews).  I am going to try and get something off of that list today.  Hopefully! I was just going over the new book spreadsheet I made and I realized I have 6 book either currenly reading or on the DNF list.  I need to stop starting new books and just focus on that list next.  I think that will be my new goal for the month of August.  Just clean up that list.
