Talk & Thoughts

Unfortunately I won’t be posting much for the next couple of days  :(.  I joked about having my fingers crossed with Bookin’ With Bingo’s giveaway and then my computer crashed.  My laptop is being diagnosed by “The Geek Squad” and hopefully will get it back ASAP.  I am borrowing hubby’s computer for emails and checking web page, but since everything else (programs, saved blog info, etc) is on my laptop, posting is difficult.  I hope I can join in for the memes this week.  My personal meme for Relax and Read weekend, I am accomplishing due to technical difficulties.  Have a good Sunday and relax!!!

I just started my morning routine…booted up computer, grabbed my coffee and started reading my book blog newsletters that I subscribe to.  This post will be very short as I am running off to Bookin’ With Bingo’s blog as she is having a giveaway of 3…thats right 3…Alex Cross books by James Patterson.  If you are a lover of suspense reads then this giveaway is for you too.  You can link there from this post or grab her button on my left sidebar.  Keeping fingers crossed on winning these.  So I might not be posting much because it is tough typing with fingers crossed lol.

Being a Catholic ItaloAmerican, our tradition is to have a 7 fish dinner on Christmas Eve.  For 24 years I hosted it for immediate family and close friends then had an “open house”.

Taking the plunge…what I consider the biggest challenge !!!!  I have been spending more time on the computer working on my blog page than actually reading.  This challenge hosted by J. Kaye (will put the link up later this afternoon) is for 2010 100+ books.  I will be happy if I even get close to that number but am going to be reading more and remodeling my page less.  GLA who entered, especially me LOL.
