COFFEE/TEA SHARE FEBRUARY 25, 2017

THINK POSITIVE!

If we were having Coffee/tea, I would ask you inside out of the cold. The sun is shining but it is cold 30 degrees Fahrenheit. This has been the weather for most of the week , we had snow flacks one day while the surrounding mountains had a major snow storm. There is your choice of coffee, tea or other beverage and Alita make some sumptuous banana chocolate cupcakes and brownies which she added peanut butterAlmost no signs of spring. Thursday shopping I got some spring flowers.

This week has had a lot of plusses and one negative. The latter upset me greatly as I thought matter had been taken care of. We had a lovely meal with my brother, Don and his wife, Donna. An old fashion Jigg’s meal of corn beef and cabbage. Donna showed me her smart phone and she had Gluten Free corn meal muffins from a mix. We stopped at the grocery store she got it and I found so more GF mixes. The next day grocery shopping I couldn’t believe how many new GF items were on the shelf. I was able to get a number of items that I haven’t eaten in a long time.

I am not endorsing any of the brands, they are products I used or plan to try.  Yesterday started out fairly well, I got my hair cut then we went to our favorite electronic store. The manager show us a smart phone and I decided it would work for me  to text. So I decided to used our credit card only to have it declined. I brought the phone and went to our bank. The card had not been activated when I had been assured it was all right.

WEEKLY SMILE

wp-1483116168196.jpg

After last Saturday when I had so much problems with WordPress or my Kindle to write and post my blog. Today, Our my luck changed. I need an Idaho ID in lieu of a driver’s license.I had to go downtown Boise for it. We got up early and drove into Boise. We arrived about 7:00A.M.. Ther were already about 10 people in line. We took our place in line. It was cold but no rain. I sat in my walker and to our surprise a gentleman brought a wool blanket so I wouldn’t be as cold. I thank him. Others in line help us through the doors when they opened. The gentleman got his blanklet back with thanks. 

Overnight the trees in front of the building had put on leaf buds overnight. The sin is shinning with a strong wind.

My brother has invited us over tomorrow for cornedbeef and cabbage dinner. 

Think Positive! Hugs!

A CAST OF VULTURES By Judith Flanders

31216050

This is an outstanding mystery full of suspense. It is not about birds. The characters are developed, the area descriptions will place you in London and neighborhood. The presentation of how a book is published and the politics involved is delightful. The fact the MC did not do anything too stupid to place herself in danger is pleasing. Samantha aka Sam is woken one night by the smell of smoke and noise. Going outside she watch the “Empty House” burned to the ground. Sam knew that the house had occupants even if the authorities did not and inform Jake, her live boyfriend who is a police officer of the fact. All got out safely. Therefore, it was a surprise to find a body in the fire ruins. Sam and friends begin to explore what happens and she needs to interact with office policies at work. Sam must find an answer to the fires before she becomes a victim. Disclosure: I received a free copy from St. Martin’s Press through NetGalley for an honest review.

THE BALLOON MAN By Charlotte Armstrong

33831681

I have always enjoyed Charlotte Armstrong ‘s books. I read as many as I could find in the 1970’s. The conditions concerning domestic abuse that were in play at that period are correct. In the minds of the police and society, a woman was considered quilty of provoking her husband.
After fifty years and rereading the story, I feel it is one of the best stories I have read. It held my attention and Until I finished the book. The MC could have been very depressed of all the negative occurrence in her life, but she remains upbeat for her son.
Sherry Reynard is fixing breakfast for her husband, Ward when he started to chock her. She screamed and their two-year-old child, Johnny runs to Mommy. Ward picks up the child and throws him across the room. He went back to continue to chock. Sherry picks the frying pan and hits his shoulder. The police question her at the hospital if Ward wanted assault charges against her. Johnny had broken bones and a concussion.
Sherry realized that Ward was out of his mind and she cannot let Ward near Johnny again. At the point, Ward’s, wealthy and controlling Father, attempted to control. Sherry declined and files for divorce. Her In- laws file for custody of Johnny. In order to win his agent must frame Sherry. This book has so many twists and turns that will grasp your attention. What does the Balloon man have to with this story? You will need to read the book to find out.
