This book caught my eye at the library a few weeks ago. THEN I saw the book reviewed on Debbie's blog. I knew this would be a book that I would READ and not simply take back to the library.
Ivy Malone is a LOL (Little Old Lady) - she's whimsical, quirky, and hilarious. She manages to solve mysteries and adjust to her changing life in this first book of the series. I especially laughed about Ivy's thoughts on being "invisible" - I've SEEN this. I think she may have a point.
I found myself crying, laughing, thinking.....I really did enjoy this book. It is DEFINITELY a cozy mystery - but it's a series I plan to continue.
This is another fiction book on my fall reading list. I know I need to finish up some non-fiction, but at this season in our family life - I'm reading to RELAX and fiction fits the bill.
For a family that doesn't "do" Halloween we always look forward to Halloween. Why? In future years I'm sure it will be more about the opportunity to pass out our tracts and goodies....but typically it's because of 50% off candy and 75% off costumes. We have QUITE a collection of costumes.
We've not taken advantage of the 50% off candy for a few years - but I 'm thinking these little treats are perfect to make for hostess gifts, office gifts etc...Check em out...
I stumbled on this youtube video this a.m. - still looking for a suitable Holiday sound...::snort::
Making Candy Christmas Wreaths - be aware that I have no clue what youtube will list as follow on videos - so be careful what you click.
