Today is the day!

I get to announce my very first winner! Donna did the last one for me. I don't think she trusted me to get it right. So this time, I snuck in there under the radar and finished what I started. YEEEE HAWWW!!! So who is the lucky winner of the McCarty Griffin giveaway? Hmmmm???

There are times when I am blonde, probably more often than not, it IS part of my charm. So I don't know how to post this Random thing, but I do know I did it and here's what it came up with for the winner:

So that means that the very lovely Adva walks away with the book of her choice! WHOOO HOOOOOO!!!! Congrats Adva!!! If you get Monster Story, (which is what I would do), you will LOVE IT! Thanks for posting such a lovely and encouraging post and thanks for visiting our blog and entering our contest. I'll be sending you an e-mail shortly with all the lovely details.

So what has everyone been up to? I have been sort of AWOL around here. I actually started 2 new temporary jobs and then started to recover from working those (recover with other work and my household duties) when I got hired for a third and hopefully permanent job. YEEEEE HAWWWWW!!!! It's almost a perfect job for me. I'm so very excited about it. I started the Tuesday after Labor Day but for now, I will be babysitting my girlfriends two kidlets. I'll be gone from home for 2 weeks and staying at her house. I hope I have some time during those two weeks to get caught up on all my computer stuff. It's been very frustrating for me.

So now on to today's meme.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read;

Open to a random page;

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page!

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"Eve was put to sleep. And so was Adam...and, I think, so was my brother Matthew."

I am reading an absolute page turner in every sense of that term. I seriously am having a hard time putting this book down.

It's called "When the Wind Blows" by James Patterson which is the .5 book in the Maximum Ride series. I am not a huge Patterson fan. I mean, I've read his books before and they are alright. Not really in my romance genre but dayum, this book is freaken AWESOME! I think anyway. The reviews are mixed. If you have a literary brain, it may not be your thing but if you just like to sit down and enjoy a book, then get this one. I'm so glad I picked it up and I will be getting more and more into this series.

So that's it for me for today. I hope everyone has a great one and congratulations again to our winner, winner, chicken dinner!!!
