A New Book.....

Hello everyone

How is everyone today ?? I hope you all had a really nice Christmas. I enjoyed the holiday and pretty soon it will be New Year's Eve. Tomorrow I go back to work of course.

Anywho...yesterday I went to Walmart and I picked up a few books. One of the books I picked up is called "SALEM FALLS" by the writer Jodi Picoult. There is a guy in the book named Jack St. Bride and he was a teacher at a girls prep school and he was convicted of sexual assault and the thing is so far I don't think he did it. He went to prison and he endured a lot in prison. He got out of prison and he went to a small town called Salem Falls and he gets a job at a diner called Do-Or-Diner and he does register as a sex offender but in the story it doesn't come out that he did the crime with which he was convicted. People are wondering about him and they don't know anything about him.

So far I am feeling kind of sorry for him and I am starting to like him in the story. I will have to keep reading the book to find out more of the story.

Question :

Have you ever read a book that made you curious about the people in the book ? I am curious to know if you ever read a book that you just wondered about ??? Let me know

MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone

Its officially Christmas Day so let me begin by saying Merry Christmas to you all !!!!!!! How has your Christmas been ? I hope that you all got really nice gifts and that you were able to spend time with family and friends. I am having a really nice Christmas with my family. All is well in Atlanta, Georgia.

My folks got me a nice winter jacket since I haven't had one in a while. My youngest niece got me (2) bags of Lindor Truffles and my mom gave me a bracelet and earring's. My auntie Marie came by yesterday with my uncle Tony and they gave me a gift card to my favorite bookstore Barnes & Noble. My niece Jeanette gave me the new Pink CD which I love.

Yesterday my folks and I and my niece's had a little party at the house. We had some finger sandwiches, chips and dip, some ham roll-up's and my niece's made a green Christmas tree cake that was quite cute. Later in the evening we went to midnight mass at St. Philip Benizi. It was a really nice night.

Anywho.....I do want to wish you all a very wonderful and memorable and happy Christmas.

Crowded Stores...And A Wonderful Dinner

Hello everyone

Good evening !!!!!!! I wanted to come by and tell you about my day. Earlier this evening my mom and I went to Toys "R" Us which was a mad house. The store was full of people buying presents for their kids and the lines were looooooooooooong. I stood in one line and my mom stood in another line. She luckily got to a register before I did which was great. We decided not to stay in the store too long.

After Toys "R" Us we decided to go to Southlake Mall which was also packed with people. I ended up getting my eyebrow's done with some thread by a woman from India and let me tell you that getting my eyebrow's done hurt like crazy. Women were lining up to get their eyebrow's done as well. It cost me $10.00 to get them done and they look quite nice. Its something what we women do to be pretty these days. I'll probably wait another few months to get them done again. While we were at the mall my mom found 2 sweatshirts on sale for some of my nephew's for Christmas presents. I didn't buy anything at the mall but I did do some window shopping.

After the mall my mom and I decided to go to the Olive Garden which was simply wonderful. My niece's didn't go with us and my dad had to work so it was just the two of us. I have to tell you that our dinner was quite delicious let me tell you. We had this flatbread with basil and melted cheese as an appetizer which we liked. Then we had a salad which was also quite good. We both ordered a drink called a Limoncello Lemonade which we both enjoyed. We both ordered the Shrimp and Chicken Carbonara which was very very very very delicious to say the least. I ended up treating my mom for dinner and I have to say that it was nice just the two of us to go out to the store and then to dinner. Here is the link if you want to see it ---->

Tomorrow we will probably go to Walmart and I will more than likely do some shopping since I know what presents I want to get. So how was your day today ?? I do hope that you had a really nice Saturday. That's all for now. I'll talk to you again later.

Good night

A Nice Ceremony....

Hello everyone

How is everyone ? I hope you are all well. You might want to know that yesterday I went to my Service Pin Ceremony at the Comissioner's building. The ceremony was quite nice. The comissioner presented me with my service pin and my 5 year certificate. There were quite a lot of people there getting their pin's and certificate's. My head boss's showed up to the ceremony and they wanted to take a picture with me and my boss at my work with them which I did. I didn't know that my head boss's were going to show up to the ceremony. My folks and my niece's were also there to see me get my pin and certificate. Quite a few people congratulated me on my 5 year anniversary which was nice. It seems like I just started at my job.

After the ceremony I treated my folks and my niece's to dinner at Applebee's. We then got home a little bit later in the evening. So how was your day my dear world ? I do hope that all is well in your neck of the woods. Are you getting ready for Christmas ?

Do keep me posted.

Udate...And More Christmas Ornament Shopping

Hello everyone

Good evening how is everyone ?? First let me say thank you to all of you who visit my blog here. For those of you who are not usual visitors please feel free to drop in anytime and say hello. I do welcome comments, thoughts or questions. I am again. Today I didn't go into work today for a particular reason. I did end up spending the day with my folks today. Earlier today my folks and I took a ride over to Lowe's to look at all of the Christmas decorations. I did find a tree ornament I liked and a Jeff Gordon Christmas ornament I liked and I bought the ornaments. I am still a fan of Jeff Gordon the race car driver which is why I bought the Christmas ornament.

After Lowe's we took a ride over to the store called Michael's which was very fun. I got some more Christmas ornaments I liked and some Christmas stickers I liked. I also got an antique Chinese house for my mom's Christmas village she puts up every year. While at Michael's I also found some Halloween stickers I liked. Can you believe that Halloween decorations are still up ?

Once we got home we waited for my niece's to come home from school. A little bit later we all took a ride to Garden Ridge. I got some unusual Christmas ornaments for work since we put up a Christmas tree at work. I wonder what my coworker's are going to say about my unusual Christmas ornaments. I also got a Christmas tablecloth for our table at work.

For dinner we went over to Truett's. I got a midnight ham and cheese sandwich. The sandwich was pretty good. They had Christmas decorations up and it was nice going there for dinner.

You might want to know that my youngest niece has a Swim meet in Marietta, Georgia tomorrow so I will have to wake up pretty early tomorrow. So how was your day my dear world ? I do hope that your day was a nice one. How are things in your neck of the woods ??

I have to tell you about a blog I read a little while ago. The name of this blog is called "Latent Thoughts". I really enjoyed reading it and I happen to think that this is a site worth visiting. You will fall in love with it as I did. Please drop in and say hello and tell her I sent you. Here is her link ----> . Thank you

I would like to wish you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone

Good evening all !!!!!!!!! How is everyone today ???? I am pretty good. Anywho it was a little cool this morning in Atlanta, Georgia.

So...I just finished reading "Dead Until Dark" by the writer Charlaine Harris which was a very good book. The book was based on the television series TRUEBLOOD on HBO. I have to say that the book was quite a good one. I really have to say that Charlaine is a good writer here is her link -----> . I highly recommend the book. I have to say that I really liked the vampire whose name is Bill Compton.

BTW (By The Way) you might want to know that I have made "5" years at the Clayton County Courthouse in my department aren't you proud of me. There will be a Employee Service Pin Award Ceremony on December 18, 2008 at 4:00pm. I can't believe that I have been at my job for five years already. The people at my work are pretty nice and I have come to like being around the people that I work with.

Also......IT IS ALMOST CHRISTMAS so have you done any shopping yet ??? Tick Tock the clock is ticking.....tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock

I did want to tell you that there was a guy that was in the Jury holding room today and he was a really nice guy. I noticed him yesterday and today he stopped me because he wanted to talk to me. He said that he knew my sister a while back and he said that he remembered me but unfortunately I didn't remember him. We did talk for a few minutes and he had a really nice smile and he had the most amazing eyes. I wonder if I am going to see him tomorrow.

So how was your day ?? I do hope that you had a really nice Wednesday. How are things in your neck of the woods ?? Let me know how things are going in your part of the world.
