Got some free time?

Love In BloomIf you like emotional romance readings, Love in Bloom is the book for you. And the best part about it is that it is FREE through (So nothing to loose). I warn you, it will be very difficult to put down [or off in this case, since it is a kindle download]. (I read it in one night and didn't go to sleep until 5am or so..I'm crazy uh?! I hadnt read a book cover to cover in a very long time). Night time is the only time i have to do reading (or study).  (Warning: There are some explicit sexual scenes)

From the Author:
Love In Bloom is a book close to my heart. The hero's struggle after a climbing accident to find a new purpose in life is universal to anyone who has known hardship. But his new path has caused friction between him and his father. Our adult decisions often do that. When the heroine, Paige meets Clay she realizes he has chosen his path with dignity and strength. A doctor who has helped the most helpless in third world countries, Paige must struggle with her career path. Should she go back to that work or remain a small town doctor? These two people are admirable and I hope you enjoy reading about them. 

Lonely MillionaireLove in Bloom was so good that 2 days later I decided to download another free book, The Lonely Millionaire. I read this one in a night as well. Pretty good reading. Somewhat similar love story (romance) but a cleaner version compared to the one above. 

Book Premise:
Dear Mr. Lonely....Mandy Clayton never answered personal ads, but this was one she couldn't resist and now she was falling for a guy she'd never met. Adam Gray was not interested in a mail-order romance, but he was willing to write some love letters for his friend. Then he had to go "check out" the bride to be. Off he went on an undercover job at Mandy's Bed and Breakfast in a small California beach town. Adam was a good guy who always played by the rules, but one look at Mandy and he couldn't help it - he wanted her for himself! He wasn't there to romance his best friend's fiancee. He knew that. It would be wrong... He knew that too.

Do not get mislead by the fact that these are free... These are SUPERB summer readings.  Almost as relaxing as doing crafts... and that's why I decided to share. :) Enjoy!

PS. These were 2 nights of no sleep, but hey!...I haven't sleep good since my daughter was born, so what is a few days more of complete insomnia.

Summer Came and Left

Rio Grande, Puerto Rico

Hello there! So, summer came and left and it felt as if it only lasted a weekend... well..maybe 2 weeks.   As always, I was pretty busy at the lab, but I did get a chance to go to Puerto Rico for 10 days. Yes! 10 whole days... and I really needed it. I got to see family, relax by the beach, learn some crafting ideas from my grandmother, eat amazing food, relax by the beach, and did I say relax by the beach? It seems as if that was all we did (besides visiting the hundreds of family members i have over there). Yes! I'm exaggerating again. I mean, I do have hundreds of family members but I didn't set up to see them all during that time. During that time I kept the shop open but with some coupon code and a note letting customers know I was gone. To say the least, it took me about 2 days to catch up with orders.

OK.. I just wanted to share a bit of my summer since I didn't get to post anything during that time.
Have a great weekend!
