Reading is my passion

Every year I take the Goodreads.com challenge. I challenge myself to read more books. I started at 50 because I thought I could read a book a week and since there were 52 weeks in a year I thought that was doable.

Each year I try to increase that number and since I retired I have bumped those numbers up. This year with the pandemic I have exceeded that number so far. January I challenged myself to read 75 books and I am already at 77 books.

Here are some of the great books I have read sometimes two a week.

If you would like to read my reviews on these books hop over to my blogger to check them out. It’s where I only blog about my reviews of books. Click here

Have you read any of these books? If so would love to hear your comments on them.

She Said She Needed Some Makeup

She called for a catalog and said she needed some makeup I was happy to get a new customer. Besides that is what this business was about. And so I ran over to her house and dropped off a book and some samples. She said she needed lipstick and blush and shadow mainly. I pointed out some great sales and beautiful colors.

When I left I felt I would get a nice sized order since she looked at a lot of colors in all the makeup. And so a few weeks later I woke up to a $700 order! I was delighted and amazed especially since I make 40% as my commission.

One year later she called again for a book and I immediately got one to her. Again I woke up to a $300 order. How much makeup does one person need?

Curiosity got the best of me so I called her to thank her and inquire about her purchases. I was thrilled to find out that she runs a dance studio and had purchased the items for her girls to use during their recital. Just to let you know, I am looking forward to next year’s recital.

I Am A Little Looney

I am sitting here with my IPAD switching between reading, blogging, playing cookie jam. I woke up at 6 am and proceeded to get dressed, eat breakfast and do a load of laundry.

My day ended and it was only 9 am. I worked on the computer for my business, took orders, packed orders, made phone calls and then is was lunch. I ordered groceries on the phone to be delivered in the evening.

I then sat and pondered what life had become. You see hubby and I are seniors and there is not only no where to go but we are leery about going out especially in crowds. We do go to the doctor and the pharmacy but other than those two things we are home bound. I love my house and really should start decluttering but I don’t want to.

I want to take a walk in the park but the last time I tried that there were mobs of people without masks. I would love to eat out but hubby feels sitting on the outside of the restaurant is not his thing. Who wants people walking by and looking at what you eat. Dining indoor has been halted again. At least in my area. The movies are out, too many people and we have also stopped going to the nail salons. We have had our hair cut twice since the start of the pandemic but recently got a call that the hair salon closed for one month.

And so for the first time I know what depression feels like. That feeling that nothing really matters. So we started to walk around the block in the morning before the neighborhood wakes up. To avoid people, and get different scenery. And I have started a journal. Of all the good things in my life….my children, my grandchildren, a house to live in, food on the table, the ability to order anything online. Maybe I am not looney after all. Life could be worse. Wonder what’s on Netflix tonight?

Holidays are coming

I don’t know about you but this year has flown by. Is that a good thing? In one way it is. Maybe we can put it behind us and start to heal this country but at the same time it is like wishing your life away.

I find when you reach a certain age you think about your life more. What you accomplished and how much time you have left to still do the things you want to do. Right now we are all suffering a bit. Family time is not the same. I miss the kids and grandkids. We keep in touch but it is more like they live far away and getting together is hard. But when they live a few blocks away and talking on the phone becomes the norm it takes a toll on you.

And so with the holidays around the corner it is hard to fathom how we are going to get through them . The summer has been ok since we do meet from time to time in the backyard but now that the weather is changing I am wondering what will happen. How are you planning to celebrate? Are you going to be indoors in a large crowd. Some families like mine are quite large. Would love to hear your comments.

Meantime let me post a few pictures of great ways to decorate your home even if you will not have that crowd over. I know I will continue putting out the fall wreaths on my door and Thanksgiving decor along with my holiday items for December. How about you?

Are you ready?

I have been lax in my blogging but am going to remedy that today. And hopefully will be posting a lot more. Taking care of my husband is a full time job which has left me little time.

So starting off today I am asking you if you are ready for the holidays? I know they will be different this year. Haven’t even thought what I will be doing for Thanksgiving and celebrating birthdays has been strange in my family, but go on we will do.

My Avon business has been surviving with most of my customers ordering online and those who don’t have been picking up their orders from my home. But I wanted to let everyone know that the upcoming book has holiday items that usually fly off the shelves.

Did you know that no matter where you live (US only) you can receive a free catalogue from me. Contact me for one today. And take a look at these beauties as a gift for a special someone or treat yourself.

Even if you dont have a mantle, I am sure you can find a place for these two.

Mrs. Everything

Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner

Mrs. Everything
by Jennifer Weiner (Goodreads Author)

I have had this book in my Kindle forever and finally got to read it. My TBR list keeps getting bigger and bigger. The book was not what I expected and went far beyond that. The story hit home as it follows a family from 1950 through 2016. That was my time.

Jo and Bethie are sisters growing up then. A time when girls could not be anything. Their place was in the home. You were a wife, a mother, a homemaker and anything else you thought of being was squashed and looked upon as crazy. But we follow this family and the reactions to dressing differently, acting differently, decisions to not have children, love between two women, the living in a commune times, and so many other taboos of that era.

I am now looking forward to reading Jennifer Weiner’s next book, Big Summer which a friend lent me. If you need a heartwarming and loving story, please pick this one up. #Kindle #fourstars

This Is How I Lied

by Heather Gudenkauf
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This audio book was an interesting read.  I am not a fan of switching back and forth through periods but it was not hard to follow.  It hinges on a murder that happened in 1995 which was never solved until 2020.  
Det Maggie O’Keefe is with the same precinct as her father who was on the case in the beginning.  She is married now and pregnant and wants to close the case her father was originally on.  Eve and Maggie were good friends, Eve gets killed and her sister, Nola is not happy about it.  
I tried to follow back and forth between the actual act of murder and the case as Maggie is now trying to solve.  Many secrets come out, and several times I thought I knew who the murderer was myself.  It seems to be a small town story where everyone know everyone else.  The narrator was good so I wasnt confused as to who was who but was really surprised to find out who the real killer was.

Moisturizers – free sample!

Do you have a favorite? Have you been using the same one since your teens? Do you change them when you feel they arent working anymore?

These are the questions you should ask yourself. I have gone through a lot of moisturizers in my 70+ years – from Noxema to Ponds to Avon. I have only found that Avon has been the right one for me. But wait! I have switched moisturizers within the Avon family also. The moisturizer you use in your 30s will not work for you in your 50s and by the time you reach 70, well you know your skin needs more!

When I started using Avon I went with Vitale and then switched to the Anew Ultimate line because it did a great job. But lately some wrinkles have been creeping in on my face and I decided to try the new Anew line.

The new ISA KNOX ANEW LINE is the best ever moisturizer. There is a day cream, night creme, and serum that I have been using every night and day and after two days, my DIL asked me what I did to my face because it was glowing.

It is now available online at my website — would you like a sample instead? I will mail out samples of this moisturizer while supplies last…email me at beautyboss2015@gmail.com and I will send you a sample and email you a discount code to use on my website.
