Gotcha! Gotcha! by Fern Michaels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Sisterhood Books...never read Fern Michaels so I decided to start with this one. Sounded good...and I wasnt disappointed. Its a great story that starts with Julie who is a widow but very happy where she is in life. Except for her son who died or as Julie puts it - was killed by her daughter in law. Darlene is a piece of work. She makes Julie's life miserable and wont let her see her granddaughter. Julie runs out of money trying to get custody of her granddaughter legally...and then, just when she gives up..along comes a man who will forever change her life...along with her friends she takes over the situation to get her granddaughter back...but not in the most conventional way......a great read!

What's around the corner?

SnoopyLand......we all grew up with him....and every year he comes back...for Halloween, and Christmas....You're a Good Man Charlie Brown....Peanuts will live forever and our grandchildren's grandchildren will be watching it.  Why not go one better and buy -  a blanket - characters - or Snoopy himself.  Save it for a grandchild....Charlie Brown is forever  

This great deal is not available until C-23 which comes out October 12th...but you can get it earlier through me before it is all sold me today and I will pre-order it for you and have it delivered straight to your door....remember Christmas is around the corner....

Not into Snoopy and Charlie Brown (cant believe that) then browse C-22 easily accessed her - click on the brochure on the right side and enjoy.

Some days are better than others

The amazing thing about days is the fact that they are always changing.  So, OK, today I had to go into work early to cover the other secretary and while I dont really mind because that means I get to go home was a bummer.  You see I started it with a tooth ache....and it wasnt going away.  I took Aleve which took the edge off of the pain along with Oragel - a gel that numbs the gums, but I did suffer all day.  Eating cottage cheese for lunch didnt help either.

So I called the dentist and begged him to see me after work because I couldnt stand the pain and he so graciously said to come in by 3:15 pm.  No problem....but upon finishing up my visit I found that I need root canal and the dentist who does this is religious and since it is holiday....wont be back until now I am still waiting, with pain.

But there is a bright side - I got antibiotics which the doc said should take care of most of the pain (nothing yet since I took them at 4 pm) and did manage to drop off my Avon books at both the dentist and the maybe I will get some new customers....You never know....

The above items can be found   Start planning for the holidays...

Bananas, apples, pears

Grapes, watermelon, juice, bread.....yes, that's a shopping list. And today was shopping day.  And I hate it....then we were also at JCPenney...clothes shopping.  Guess I am not what you call a happy shopper.  Some people love it and can do it all day.  I think it is boring, hard on the feet, tiring and makesA me hungry.

So what is the alternative?  We have to eat and of course need clothes from time to time.  Well. in this day and age we can always order online.  Supermarkets have now become part of the internet...type in your food and as long as you have a credit card - the food comes to you.  Every clothing store from Macys to Walmarts and also the pharmacy - just the other day I renewed a prescription by scanning into the phone --- they are all online and can deliver.

And I have easily joined the rest of the stores by opening my Avon Online Store so that you too can enjoy ordering all your makeup needs, lotions, cremes, bubble bath, kitchen items, jewelry, even clothes, etc....

I don't wear makeup

I hear this every day.  As I hand out my Avon books, people look at me and say that.  And then I feel defeated.  Shot down before I even start.  So I take a deep breath and explain that Avon is more than makeup.....we sell lotions, kitchen items, fragrances (love their Haiku) shoes, slippers, underwear and of course beautiful clothes..

Yes, things like hats, ponchos, scarves, tops and pants and dresses.  And dont forget their jewelry - it lasts  a lifetime.  Recently had a customer order another ring - because the one she ordered 10 years ago wore so well, she needed another.  Take  a look below and if that is not on the catalog to the right to browse around my website.....

Curby Curby by Adrian Del Valle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was shorter than I wanted it to be....but a great book nonetheless. Nick, a sanitation worker, finds a box while cleaning the streets. In it is a newborn baby....and what would you do? Well he doesnt do what you would expect...he takes the baby home to his live in girlfriend, who has cancer, and they decide to raise him. They name him Curby (found on a curb) and life is good until the girlfriend passes, and Nick hires a nanny who carelessly leaves him to wander out of the house...what follows is a heartbreaking story of will Nick lose this child he has raised but has no right too, cant claim as his own and ends up in court fighting the foster mom who wants to keep him.....

A Reason to Live A Reason to Live by Matthew Iden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Marty Singer. Retired detective with a 12 year old case bugging him because the killer got away with it. Only after the victims daughter comes to him for help because the killer is now after her does Marty feel a reason to live especially after being diagnosed with cancer. This book holds you on the edge of your seat because it's not only a page turner but also a surprise with twists you cant even imagine. Great book!
