Let’s Never Find A Cure

It is amazing what laughter can do for a person.  How it can infect one’s soul with energy and awaken us.  How is can change a bad day. Or bad news.  How it can offer relief, even if only temporary.

What makes you laugh?  Is it a funny joke or a comedian?   A witty one liner?  Maybe something silly or goofy you spouse or kids did.  Perhaps a pet that has done something ridiculous? Sometimes it’s someone else’s laugh.   You know the one.  It gets you laughing so hard you can’t even remember what you where laughing about in the first place.  Where your belly aches and your eyes become a stream.

Have you laughed today? What was it that made you laugh? Was it just a chuckle or may a full out roar of laughter? How did it make you feel?  Did it change your day in anyway, even if momentarily?

Infect your soul today with laughter and then spread it on!  Change a moment of your time and feed your soul some happiness.  Let’s never find a cure!

Golden Like Whiskey Sunshine

There is something so beautiful about the colour of whiskey.  How the light hits it a certain way.  Sometimes amber or caramel in colour or golden like liquid sunshine.  Seeing its flaxen transparency through the bottle.

Whiskey has become by go to drink over the last few years.  Something that I have grown into.  I find something very relaxing about a glass of whiskey.  After a day at work,  or a drink on a patio during the summer.

Or maybe the comforts it brings in a Hot Toddy on a frigid winters night.

We are so lucky here in Canada, specifically for me in Ontario, to have some great distillers, like Forty Creek and Wayne Gretzky’s,  available to us.

Review – Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl by Marie Savage

Asphalt Cowboy – a man (country boy) who works on the road. he is always gone, traveling to different states due to his line of work.
an asphalt cowboy could be considered a truck driver, iron worker, etc.

I was provided an ARC of Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl for an honest review. Asphalt Cowboys Girl Marie Savage E-Cover

In this steamy contemporary romance by Marie Savage, we meet Luke McIntyre and Aimee Jo Elliott.  Luke a loner, travelling the highways with his rig, living life by his terms,  finding temporary lovers along the way.  Aimee Jo, a young, trusting, naïve woman, fleeing her life in Georgia, hopeful of a new start in California. Unfortunate circumstances have the two crossing path at a truck stop in Mobile Alabama.  What should have been an easy 4 days together turned out to be anything but.

This was my first read by Marie Savage.  I really enjoyed the overall plot line of the novel.  The book was a very easy read and easily devoured in one sitting.  The story line flowed seamlessly throughout the entire novel.  I also really liked that Miss Savage chose to write the novel from a dual point of view.  One of my favourite things about any romance novel is reading it through the males eyes.

While I generally like my lead females to be strong and fierce, I found that Marie Savage wrote Aimee Jo’s character to perfection.  Her skilled words brought Aimee Jo to life, as she saw her, on each and every page.  cag1

The steaminess really builds in Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl until it was thick with sexual tension.   Add in a unexpected threat from a dangerous ex and you having the makings a of a well rounded book.

Overall I rate Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl 4 Stars.  I’m looking forward to reading what Marie Savage will produce in the future as she grows as an author.

Share Your World – May 14, 2018

Here is my take on this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …

Genoa Salami.  I love the stuff.   I eat a lot of it.  On its own, in sandwiches/ wraps. Wrapped around Cheese Strings.  Maybe added in some red onion as well.  Yummy!

What is your least favorite candy?

Orange or yellow jelly beans.  Yuck!!! They are horrible.  Black are my favourite but there is just something about the taste of those two.

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I’m Cancer the Crab! I’ve never really put too much thought into it.  Sometimes I will read a horoscope but normally I will just pass them by.  I have read up on the characteristics of a cancer and they seem pretty accurate.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

My son turned 12 on Saturday.  Every year I make a cake for him.  This is the only time of year that I make cakes.  They have been very elaborate over the years and each year I say that I am never doing it again.  But of course this year I decided to do yet another32287728_10156049217362247_7406068363421548544_n one.  The only problem this year was that I was crunched for time.  Any even though the cake wasn’t that difficult, it was somewhat time consuming.  And right from the get go I had problems.  First the fondant ripped on the hat, then I did have red icing and didn’t have time to go to the store.  So by the time I accidently dropped a can of soup on the one corner of the cake, smooshing it to pieces all I could do was laugh. It was cursed.

But my son loved it and that was all that really mattered.
