As a transparency statement Carolyn is my daughter. Her numbers are high for a new author and she tells me she is very popular in the UK. I always told my kids that I didn't care what their chosen profession is, to only be the best at whatever they chose. It looks like Carolyn was serious about following this advice. She also teaches forensics in a local high school as her Master's is in this field of study.
Cyndi Mills has a great life. A handsome husband that is totally hot for her, a beautiful daughter, and friends she could trust with her life. Her life should feel complete, yet she feels something is missing. She knows her husband won't approve when she takes on a job where her closest friend is a cross dressing bartender, her mentor has a feather boa for every occasion, and her alter-ego spends every shift shaking her... um... assets. She manages to keep her new career a secret from her husband, Jason, until her co-workers start disappearing. Cyndi is determined to find the missing girls. Unfortunately, solving the case means her overly protective cop husband has to know where she goes every Friday night and the killer soundtrack of 80's rock won't matter to him one bit. Cyndi's thrown deep into the case when she becomes a confidential informant.
With her marriage and family on the line, will she risk everything to find justice?
Washington state cherries. As long as they are available, I'll be snacking on them. I canned five jars for a winter treat.
Organic tomatoes that a neighbor shared with me. The flavor was so 'tomatoy'. I miss the true flavor of veggies that I remember from childhood - before our crops were messed with.
A pack of ten Mylar blankets. People use them to cover their windows in the summer to deflect heat from the sun. I'll be putting them up on key windows this week. I hope this lives up to the great reviews I read.
I'm a sucker for the homecoming videos that pop up on my fb page from the Veteran's site. I normally need facial tissue while watching the happiness of families reunited after a soldier's tour in the Middle East
I'm a big fan of the Royal Family in the UK. The new pictures up on facebook of Charlotte's christening are adorable.
The Tudor Farm (BBC documentary) on yoo toob is packed with information that could be used in today's simple life. However, I won't be raising any hogs or chickens in the near future.
Dried 4 cups of pumpkin that I froze in the fall. This way I'm not pressured to use it before it gets freezer burned. When I want to make bread, I'll reconstitute it.
There are two quart bags of blackberries in the freezer, with a whole lot more to come. The berries on the bush are in different stages - some red, some green, and some still in the flower stage. I'll wait until all of them are picked to process them.
|I tried to get a shot of all three stages of growth on the berry bush.|
The bedding is washed and put back on the bed.
Some items that need to be hand washed are hanging over the shower door.
Some bay leaves are also dried and sealed in a canning jar.
I documented what was in the freezer and pantry so I don't waste money re buying what I already have.
A trip to Sam's club and the kitchen now has 10 pounds of flour, 10 pounds of sugar, vitamins (my son in law insisted), an eight can pack of baked beans, and tuna. I also stocked upon toilet tissue and facial tissue.
Some blackberry leaves were also cleaned and dried for a tea in the colder months. These leaves are said to aid in digestion.
