In Pictures

The other night, I went outside to take a picture of the Christmas lights...

And saw this in the yard...

Became fascinated with the moon and fast moving clouds last night...

And tonight we have ice on the sidewalk...

It's beginning to look a lot like...

As in, the wind is wicked today.

Here's a bag that got caught in our tree earlier.

Before I looked out the window, the leaves blowing down the street sounded like sleet hitting the house. No sleet. No rain of any kind. Just the wind whipping everything around. As soon as Christmas is over, we can go right back to being warm again. I hate the cold.

Catching Up

I'd been sitting on my last few reviews for weeks. No real reason other than I do really well at putting things off. But I got them done and put them up at the eharlequin site where I've participated in their 100,000 book challenge for the past two years. Last year, I read 17 books. This year, 24. And I've just started reading Twilight which should take me into the new year.

I also went back through all my reviews and compiled a Top 10 favorites of 2008.

1. Stalked by Brian Freeman
2. Fractured by Karin Slaughter
3. The Adventures of Slim & Howdy by Brooks and Dunn
4. Born Country by Randy Owen
5. Fuzzy Navel by J.A. Konrath
6. All the books in the firefighter series by Jill Shalvis
7. The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx
8. All three books in the Seduction Summer series (Nina Bruhns, Cindy Dees, Sheri Whitefeather
9. All three books in the Love at First Bite series by Kimerly Raye
10. Texas Princess by Jodi Thomas

It's late and I'm exhausted, but wanted to post this pic I took of Randy Owen of Alabama while he was signing my copy of his latest book, Born Country, at Legacy Books in Plano tonight.

After waiting anxiously for weeks, and showing up an hour and a half early, I was a little disappointed that they weren't allowing pictures to be taken with Randy. At least I got this one.
