Day 3, and other stuff

So I made it through day 3. I have survived. I have not ben able to get off coffee yet. Still at one cup in the morning. Shut up! I’m taking baby steps. Oh, sorry, not you. I was talking to my conscious.

I went out to breakfast with a friend and I ate fruit. I was drooling over her oatmeal. Oatmeal. I hate oatmeal but her oatmeal had cream and brown sugar on it. I really was just drooling over the brown sugar. I wanted to lick it off the top of the oatmeal. I need help.

In other news, because apparently the world still spins even when I’m not allowed sugar, Sir D and Bob are sick. They have the cold-from-the-dark-side that I had last week. We are a giving family.

Also, Ann has exactly 11 more weeks at Scottish Rite. 11 more times I have to drive downtown. I can’t wait till it’s over. I think I may be more excited than she is.

One other thing. I am in need of a good book. I have hit a reading slump lately. I love adventure/suspense/romance type books. It does not have to be Christian per say, but I don’t like smut. Any suggestions? Come on. Give me something. I have to keep my mind busy or I’ll start licking other people’s breakfast cereals.

Terri Blackstock books or Alton Gansky. I haven't read a dud yet. Are you familiar with them?

Thanks Michaela, I have read all of Terri Blackstock's books. I love her stuff. My son reads Alton Gansky but I've never read any of his stuff. I'll have to give it a try.

Thanks! Keep them coming!

I just finished a book by Charles Martin called Maggie - the sequel to The Dead Don't Dance. Great author - v descriptive. He has 2 others that I'd love to get. Love BJ Hoff's stuff - and have you read Liz Curtis Higgs? She has several novels that are very good (& I got them from the Euless library) - a series with an Irish version of the Leah & Rachel story. Also read A Garden in Paris and A Hilltop in Tuscany by Stephanie Grace Whitson - esp fun since we had just been to Paris. Also another one set in Paris called Kissing Adrian - don't remember the author. (all these are Christian) I'm sure you've probably read Francine Rivers, but I love her Mark of the Lion series. Also love all the books by Dee Henderson - wish she came out new ones with more often! My mom reads many books a week and then usu passes them on to me, so she keeps me up w/ new ones :-) Hope some of these are some you haven't read! :-)

Becca I'm cracking up! I've read everything you suggested except BJ Hoff and Charles Martin, I'll have to look them up.

The author to Kissing Adrian is Sari Mitchell. I LOVE her stuff! Her The Cubicle Next Door is a favorite of mine.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll head to the library!

I figured no matter how long my list was, there was a good chance you would have read them all :-) Hope you can find Charles Martin at the library - and I hope you like his books as much as I do! It's good to have the name of the Kissing Adrian author - I would love to read more of hers. I esp liked that one b/c the characters had several discussions that we find ourselves having living here in Europe (i.e. are there pluses to a socialist govt? why is wine so taboo? etc) Just looking through our church library's list - Schalesky is another author I liked. Seems like she wrote the book about a lost Indian (Only the Wind Remembers, I think) Sally John is another author I like. (one of hers I've read is The Beach House and there's a prequel or sequel) I'll keep sending more if I think of any :-)
