Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – Jan. 2018

 

It’s a new year! My year didn’t start off great. My hubby and son rang in the year sick and then to top it off on the second day of January I cut my thumb and had to go to the Urgent Care and got seven stitches. No fun!!!Jan. just hasn’t been a great month. It’s been cold and rainy in California.

 

I did get some gardening done and saw that some of my bulbs I planted in the fall are coming up. Also my Hibiscus is blooming. Having my plants come to life so early in the year is about the only thing I like about living in California.

 

 

It was a slow month for me and the library. I didn’t visit her as much as I usually do. I manly checked out a lot of movies and kid books to read at bedtime with my boy. Take a look at what I did pick up from my library: January 2018 Monthly Library Love

 

 

I did a post on Randomness – Echo. My son loves our Echo device. Every morning he asks Alex to play I’m Still Standing by Elton John. He heard the song in the movie “Sing” and feel in love with it, so mom bought the song and now I get to listen too it a lot in the morning.

 

 

 

And, my husband likes to play the Shiny song from Moana. Every morning too. It’s a running joke in our home. LOL

Monthly Library Love – Jan. 2018

 

A new year has come and the library love challenge is in full swing. I have too say January is a slow month for me. It takes me a while to get back into reading after all the Holiday adventures. 

 

Here is January’s Library Love.
The library is a great place to pick up books, movies, manga, audiobooks, magazines and more. I love my library and the freedom to borrow.
Check out all the wonderful items I picked up this month. 

 

Audiobooks – Hostage to Pleasure, Branded by Fire, Blaze of Memory

 

 

 

Book: Blade Bound

 

 

 

Kid Books – Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson, Finders Keepers by Keiko Kasza, The Adventures of Beekle by Dan Santat, Alone Together by Suzanne Bloom, Before I Wake Up by Britta Techentrup, Places to Be by Mac Barnett, I’ll Hug You More by Laura Duksta, This Book Will Not Be Fun by Cirocco Bunlap, And Then Comes Summer by Tom Brenner

My library has a book store and whenever I visit my library I always stop in to see what they have. I love picking up books at a deal and also getting something to pass onto my followers. I found this beauty to read and then maybe add to my stack of giveaway books. 

 

I’ve read Wolf at the Door and She’s No Faerie Princess in Christine Warren‘s Other series. It was a while ago, but I do remember enjoying them. Then we have Laurell K. Hamilton. I actually bought, a very long time ago, the first three books in eCopy in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series. I remember liking them, but I never continued or finished the series. I’m thinking I need to start it all over again. 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to check out the library love challenge. As an added bones to those that participate we have a giveaway.

Angel’s Monthly Wrap Up – Dec. 2017

 

 

It’s the last day of December. OH MY! Where did the year go? I can’t believe tomorrow is a new year. Well I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

I’ve still got family in town. I had one set of grandparents for Christmas and once they left the next day the second set arrived, so I’ve still got family in town. I’m going through book withdrawal. I like the Holidays, but I never get any me time, so my reading is nil until everyone leaves and the boy goes back to school.

 

I do get into a baking frenzy around the Holidays or in December. I made 2 pecan pies, 2 cherry pies, chocolate chip cookies, and Herr Kuchen. Now doesn’t all those yummy deserts just make you hungry? ^_^

 

 

CHRISTMAS EVE! We have a tradition of letting the little man open one small to medium present on Christmas Eve. The present he opened had two books in it. Bear Wants More & Bears New Friend. We love the bear books and now he’s got the complete collection.

 

 

CHRISTMAS DAY! The boy made out. He got some Hot Wheels play sets, Hot Wheels cars, the Nintendo Switch(which he asked Santa for), and some major MineCraft stuff. I also got some great gifts: Echo Spot (I’m loving this device), iRoboot Roomba 600 Series, Gift Card to Amazon (now I can get some books), and a few movies + coffee and hot coco. The dog also made out with rawhides. My hubby got cloths and gift cards. It doesn’t help when I asked him for gift ideas and I didn’t get any, so I fell back on the traditional white undershirts and gift cards to iTunes and Uber. ^_^

 

 

This month we also lost our only fish. A goldfish. He wasn’t do good once we got back from our Florida Disney Vacation in November. He lasted about another month and then passed on, so I bought a new fish. My son loves the new fish and has named him Cullen plus he’s my sons favorite color, blue. I like the white on the fines. It adds some pizzazz.
