good afternoon

I deleted alot of blogs out of my favorites since I didn't check them for so long. I am keeping the ones who post here , even if it is once in a great while. I did post to a few this morning.
I put together the box for a cross stitch exchange ,that was due August 1 and I feel just horrible about it. I am never late.
Caught up on my emails now and deleting some old posts.
This afternoon I plan on stitching , model piece for Twisted Oaks designs , while watching TV shows and NASCAR.

Anyone up for some reading goals with me? I am reading as many cozy mysteries , in September, as I can. Then in October I am going to read as many Halloween themed Cozy Mysteries. November - Februaury I have to get caught up on all my favorite authors and will post those goals as well and see if anyone wants to join me in reading those. Just let me know if you are a reader and would like to be included in anything.

I joined 3 book clubs and 2 came in so far. I received:
Lee Child - Bad Luck & Trouble
Carol Higgins Clark - Laced
Mary Higgins Clark - I Heard That Song Before
Patricia Cornwell - Predator
J. A. Jance - Web of Evil
Kathy Reichs - Break No Bones
JD Robb - Born In Death
JD Robb - Innocent in Death
John Sandford - Invisible Prey
Barbara Taylor Bradford - Just Rewards

  10. Shelleen, I'm so far behind in blogging and reading posts on Yahoo groups, I've vowed to do better. I've been so ill, though, and still not up to par. I loved sewwing all the books on your list. I've read a few myself, as it was all I could really do for a time. I'll check out PBS under your name, but I really need to post more of my books there. Hope to get posting again on SS.
