a trio to read

Okay so I know I said that I had to go think about what to tell you to read....I have really eclectic taste in books okay!  But I have figured out what I want to talk about first so here it goes....a threesome!!!!!
LOL...I know it's a new concept for some and fantasy for others.  But just so you can understand my choice let me give you the titles. And if you have read them already and have a respectful comment to share- please feel free to do so.  I will try to respond back to the comments.
Please read them in order if you can.  It will help keep certain scenes better anchored in your mind.  Pack Challenge, Go Fetch!, and Here Kitty, Kitty by Shelly Laurenston.  The trio is about three best friends that have changes to adjust to, love, and fight (my favorite). In my opinion the more argumentative the book, the better the spicy scenes. In the first of the set is Pack Challenge in which the lead, Sara, is a shifter that doesn't know she's a shifter.  She had a grandmother that could have taught the devil lessons in meaness. So her sole reason for keeping a somewhat level head was the other two girls in her life. In comes a biker alpha-to-be, Zach, who "helps" her get into her "skin". 
The second part of the trio is Go Fetch! in which the lead female is Miki, a genius computer hacker that has a hard time getting her brain to calm down, so in comes Zach's best friend Conall- an extremely tall Viking shifter that believes in getting his man...umm mate...ummm genius woman.  (As you can tell I like this book better than the first.)  I happen to like books in which zesty spirit is shown.  Miki is a black woman that has no problem destroying anything that messes with the people she considers hers....literally.  And to tell you the truth- while I knew she was a black woman, Laurenston handled it in such a way that a 1/2 white/ 1/2 Indian chickie such as myself could lose the whole race scene.  Which to be honest was quite refreshing...I don't like being hit over the head with the whole "interracial couple" theme in some books.  It shouldn't matter if the woman is one race and the man is another.
And so we have come to the last book in the threesome!  Here Kitty, Kitty and I have to personal favorite of the  This is a latina woman,Angelina, that is use to men falling over her because of her beauty...but don't be fooled- remember who her best friends are (a feral shifter white woman and a genius hacker black woman.) So you know that she can kick butt if she has to....she just has to look good while doing it.  But what really impressed me was that the fact that Angelina didn't care about staying thin or dieting...She made the comment -"There's no same in having an X in front of that L."  Not to mention the cheeseburger, fries, real soda, and loads of ketchup she could eat without regret (and the ribs, fried chicken, sweet tea, and other normal fatty foods that normals like me eat.)  While I know she wasn't a size 18- she also wasn't a size 6 either.  She enjoyed being feminine, watching tv, music, and life.  But she also took care of business---hey someone has to hit a tiger in the head with the toplid of a toliet...even if the tiger was in his human skin at that point.  *Smile*  Like I said...the third one was my favorite-when it comes to leading ladies...but of the men- I'm torn...think on it...You have Zach- use to dealing with nuts-which these three ladies are (whipcord lean, deliciously hot), Conall- 7 ft tall and seems bulletin proof (muscles, able to handle short mad geniuses, patient, loves trying new positions), and Nik- southern boy charm, with brothers ya'll, takes care of his people, loves to tease (built but makes a suit look good, caramel on a stick). Who to hard to decide...hey---all three!!!
Tell me what you think- did you enjoy them?  Did you find them lukewarm?  Were they not what you were looking for?  Too hot?  Not hot enough?

So down here in Lumberton, NC we don't see a lot of snow....especially snow without a ton of ice.  But today we got a couple almost 4 inches. How awesome is that! Seriously, we have this week to enjoy the winter scene, so if it lingers around I won't mind.  I don't have to be back at work until next Monday.  The buses are not on the road because school is out- so it's fun for the kids and the dog!  So of course I plan on enjoying my winter wonderland this year.  This is the closest to a White Christmas for us since 1989.  I know that some people just don't know how to drive in the snow- an in my opinion they need to get someone else to do the driving for them.  Just so that those that don't live around here can understand what I am talking about- let me paint you a visual.
                   It starts to snow...just a few flurries....everyone heads to the grocery store for milk, bread, and eggs...don't ask me we have about an inch (that will not be there later in the day mind you) and everything is closed down.  All the schools, churches, most of the businesses, all mom and pop places...and in the midst of this little bit of snow- Walmart, Food Lion, and Dob's gas station will stay
So I hope that now you understand the reason that I am enjoying the fact that I can have my snow without having to make up a day teaching!

I know that I haven't been blogging as much lately...and while I have good reason- that is not a good excuse.  I'll admit to having a little time between the Christmas play, School, Students, know- all the biggies.  I just didn't feel like blogging....I know- not cool.  *Smile* But that's okay.  Besides if you can see my house right now you would know that I haven't been doing anything but being lazy.  Upside- it's the Christmas break of my life...I get to clean, wash dishes (for stuff I didn't cook), wash clothes (that I didn't wear), and wash the dog (who really needs the bath).  But I am teaching my niece how to grill a ham and cheese sandwich on the stove.  I told my nephew I would teach him to grill a peanut butter and jelly if he wanted....he said "NO!" very emphatically.....wonder if he means he doesn't want to learn to grill a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?
I have bread I need to make for the next couple of days... I wanted to try a new receipe but I couldn't find one I liked.  Anyone have a good sweet bread receipe that I can make for a family with two diabetics?  Really need the help here.  I need to go help wrap I'll catch ya on the flip side!

Found a New Blog!!!

I like the do-it-yourself kind of blogs that tells all kinds of tips to fix small and sometimes big problems with organizing your life.  The one that I called Infinity Goods blog.  I know...not the most interesting name out there but she has some cool tips...such as a kitchen colander in the bathroom to help with kiddie toys.  I really never thought about your a colander to help with the drainage and storage of those bath toys..but how cool is that.  Still I am on the lookout for more organizing ideas though.  ohohoh...forgot to tell you always make sure you come back and please tell me if you know of any other organizer blogs, tips, ideas, or anything that might help an under-paid school teacher
