I love my job. I love everything about it, the work I do, the people I work with, the hours (with a tiny exception that will come shortly), just everything. After years of working at many jobs and each one had issues; either I liked the job but didn't like the people or was more often the case, loved the people but the job gave me problems, it's finally all come together and everything is great. I work closely with two other people that I will call A and R who do the same thing only for different people. We get along swimmingly well and spend much of the day (when we aren't hard at work) laughing and I wake up every day eager to go to work.
A has one of those Far Side calendars and each one is hilarious. But there is one that she kept and shows it to everyone who comes by and says that ones me.
Now for the little tiny exception. We work weekends - we take turns so that we only work every third weekend. This works for me although A isn't so fond of it. When we work weekends, we have the Friday before and the Monday after off. But for a number of different reasons, I worked the past two weekends and was very much looking forward to having this entire weekend off as it's my turn to work again next weekend. But alas - that call came this morning. R, who was supposed to work today couldn't make it in so they called me. Fool that I am - just like the guy on the right, I said yes. So it turns out that it will be a month without two days in a row off. And after working next weekend, the following one is the weekend we're traveling south to visit baby Sis, so it won't be relaxing that weekend. So I'm thinking the next time they call me in on a weekend, I'll just say NO.
Now for the winnah!
Wendy won this weeks book. While she has it in her TBR pile, she hasn't read it yet and I got to give her a 'Wendy, Wendy, Wendy' sad shake of my head.
I adore Lorraine Heath's Westerns and I don't think I've been shy about mourning the fact that she's no longer writing them.
But this book, yes this book is the one I've reread most often. It has one of my favourite themes, younger man/older woman although they are only 2 1/2 years apart. Here's the blurb:
When Kelley Spencer moves back to her hometown of Hopeful with her sister, she hopes desperately to protect sixteen-year-old Madison from the trouble that seemed to find her in Dallas. Almost immediately, a brush with the law reveals that the police chief is none other than Jack Morgan -- the man who broke Kelley's heart many years before. He's the last man she thought she'd find still living in Hopeful...and the only man she''s ever loved.
Jack Morgan wants nothing more than a second chance with Kelley Spencer -- and he's not shy about showing it. Their love might have been doomed all those years ago, but nothings stopping him now. That is, nothing but Kelley's dark secret that might drive Jack to leave her again...this time forever.
I don't know what it is about this one - it gets me every time I read it (like I'm doing again now :-) ) It's pretty high up on my ballot for the AAR poll.
It's a bit of a controversial book - AAR only gave it a D whereas TRR gave it 5 stars. I'm with TRR on this one *g*.
I hope Wendy you read it soon so we can discuss it. I'm thinking you're more likely to agree with the AAR review so I look forward to debating it.
And I'll be in touch.
Now - after a hard days unexpected work, I have to get ready for my fourth night in a row episode of Blood Ties. This is a new-to-me one where Henry escapes the dreaded vampire hunter - I hope. And since it's on early, I just may follow it up with a re-watching of the first DVD of North and South.
Pwhooo - Henry survived although I still have questions but after I had the biggest laugh I've had in quite some time. I was curious to see the credits at the end. I know it's filmed in Toronto. Tonight they even referred to Spadina, a well-known Toronto street. But the laugh came at the end of the credits where they gave thanks to the Government of Ontario. In essence, through my tax dollars, I'm helping to fund the making of a series about a hot sexy vampire.
I love it! I mean I really, really love it!!! Somehow paying all those taxes doesn't hurt quite so bad anymore.
