Teaser Tuesdays: Island of Glass by Nora Roberts

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Books and a Beat. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read 

- Open to a random page 

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser. 

My teaser this week is from page 26 of Island of Glass by Nora Roberts:

"I won't diss positive thinking. It's a good tool - as long as you're willing to back it up." Riley gestured. "We've got some room out there to train. More in the front, the forest side, but either way. We could set up a decent target range out there."

Homemade Christmas cards



My friend came over today and showed my daughter and I how to make our own Christmas cards. It was SO MUCH fun. We can't wait to do it again!

Pretzel hugs



A delicious, sweet and salty treat that my kids and I made tonight. We also baked a bunch of cookies for a cookie swap. It was so much fun!

Christmas crochet



I love crocheting by the glow of the Christmas tree lights. It's peaceful while also being productive.

Hello December



This is the photo from my 2016 calendar - not one I took myself. I love this photo, though! It is peaceful and festive at the same time. Even as I wonder how it came to be December so fast I am ready to enjoy this season with my family and friends. I hope you all are able to do the same!

She closed her eyes, sending her wish to... well, whoever collected them. The fountain fairy?

The Karma Fairy?

The Tooth Fairy?

Please, please bring Finn true love because he deserves so much more happy than he's been dealt.

The Crown


I watched the first episode of The Crown on Netflix and loved it! Now I need to make the time to watch the rest of the available episodes! I also need to have some time to watch on my own because my husband and children are completely disinterested. LOL That's all right, though. 

Have you watched any of the episodes of The Crown? If so, what do you think? I love a lot of things that are British so I had a feeling I'd love this series when I first saw that it was being made. Now, to go back and continue watching it!

Simple beauty



There is so much beauty at this time of year - not the least of which is all the decorations. I was out with my daughter today and really struck by how beautiful this wreath looks against the gray background of the stormy sky. We both loved it so much! It's simple but so beautiful and made us both smile!
