I would rather.....

be on a beach, be starting my cruise, reading a book, drinking a glass of wine......instead I am getting ready for our annual block party on Saturday.  I one day deal....but it has taken me almost two weeks to prepare for it....

It is an amazing day, with water slides like above, cotton candy, jumpers and lots of music.  Families are outside from morning to night, cooking and eating all day.  Kids are running all around and having fun.  But it is still work....been shopping, preparing and cleaning.....still have to get buns for the hotdogs and hamburgers...and ice for the chest.

But I still would rather be on my deck, reading one of the many books on my Kindle.  With a glass of wine....At my age, quiet and going to the beach, is a must.  I do love the grandkids and sometimes we go to the zoo....which is the outdoors and I do get to sit from time to time.  I would also rather be on a cruise (oh wait, I have one booked) soon to the Bahamas....ahh....where someone else takes care of me....cooks, cleans and entertains me.....I can do that.

What else would I rather be doing? Crafting....making more jewelry items like bracelets and necklaces.  It is a way for me to relax also.  I would also rather be having a mani and pedi which I need.  Another relaxing thing to do.  But alas, we all have responsibilities.....but interspersed with that we must find time to relax....and smell the roses.....

Mostly everyone gets week, two weeks....maybe a month.  If you are in my position, you get two months..the whole summer off....relaxing, spending it any way you want....what to do, what to do?

OK, time to show off what I do.....grandkids....never ending play time, excitement.....and energy.  Of which I find I have none...but somehow they keep me young, keep me from thinking about my own ailment, and push me to LIVE LIFE.

These are only 4 of our my 8....and more pix to come after this weekend when we have our annual block party....must rest now to save up my energy for play time......BeaderBubbe signing off....for now

Cop Town

Cop TownCop Town by Karin Slaughter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Guess I am addicted to cop stories....but Karin Slaughter did not write the usual one. This story centered around the women on the police force and how they prove themselves capable of doing such a demanding job along with the job of being a female cop in a predominantly male world.

And of course, the story shows this when Kate Murphy's first day on the job in the Atlanta PD turns into one where she is not sure she will return the next day. Only when she hooks up with Maggie Lawson to find the person responsible for killing other cops, does she show her ability and knowledge of what a cop is capable of. Between their personal problems (both had family who did not want them to become cops) and those on the job, these ladies were able to solve the crimes (with a few surprises in between) and become strong women in the eyes of their fellow cops.

Rain Girl

Rain GirlRain Girl by Gabi Kreslehner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Terrific book.....starts off with drama....girl wanders into the road and gets hit by a car. There is alot of back and forth between what happened 20 years ago and the present...but if you stick with the book you will soon find out the relation of both stories, the people involved in them...with a few surprises thrown in.....very amazing surprises.....
