To Hot To Grow

I think hubby likes my hobbies more than he is letting on. He absolutely spoiled me this weekend. On Saturday we went garage sailing and picked up some sweet treasures. I will be sure to post them on my thrifting page on Pollen Patch today. I am so happy we brought the minivan because we were really filling it up. On Sunday he took me to my three favorite plant nurseries, where I bought two tree dahlias that will grow up to eight feet tall! I couldn’t even imagine having an eight foot tall dahlia. Well, I wont have to because by Summer I will have two. Not like I am complaining, but we got a lot of cute little plants, which is great, but now I have to actually plant them in the ground. Man it’s hot out there!

But for all that, when morning came, it was still just a dream. Something to be tittered about over drinks with the girls at the country club. That is, until the dream began to invade Jude’s simply perfect waking life, slowly, methodically killing and swallowing whole all that she knew and loved. The Bloody Marys by the pool will never taste the same, again.

Short Guide to Everything Important in Life: (13 Topics with Tricks & Tips)
by Ivica Milaric
Genre: Self-Help | Health, Fitness & Dieting

FREE for a limited time

Living is hard. Living is complicated. But, this book can help you make sense of everything important in the life of (almost any) individual, along with a pinch of humor and a lot of pop-culture references.

Written by a practicing counseling psychologist with over 10 years of therapeutic experience – who’s also a game design teacher – this book aims to cover it all. It does the same through simple and clear language, steering clear of complex psychological notions and statistics of any kind. There’s no hard data in this book and the author takes pride in that fact. But, it’s full of ideas that can help its readers get a better grasp of the process of living in this weird and wonderful reality we inhabit. Here are some of the key topics it explores:

• Interpersonal relationships,

• Career and job-related challenges,

• Childhood, adulthood, and growing very old,

• The concept of the machine for change all of us possess,

• A self-administered test that induces a sense of being a celebrity,

• Plenty of stuff about death and dying that seem macabre out of context,

• The notion of coming clean in more than one way.

Through all of this, the book presents numerous ideas, tips, and tricks for a somewhat better way of living. These build into a list of thoughts that can help anyone in a range of everyday situations or even in super-unlikely circumstances, like getting abducted by otherwise benevolent aliens.

Change your life. Improve your life. Understand your life.

Don’t Wait A Second

I should have done what you said sooner. I had asked you guys if I should leave the Monarch caterpillars in the garden, that I did not collect as eggs, to grow wild, or collect them and keep them safe. You guys told me to grab every single one I saw. Unfortunately I didn’t grab them when you said, but waited a few days because I was busy. When I finally did go out to collect them, I found that almost half of them were gone. HOLY MOLY! it didn’t take those predators long to start gobbling them up. I found about five more little guys and put them in the butterfly habitat on a fresh milkweed plant. I still ended up with approximately 27 caterpillars, so that’s not too bad, but it could have been more. I won’t take that long again next time.

Lovesick (Coffee Shop Series Book 2)
by Katie Cross
4.6 Stars (243 Reviews)
Genre: Romance

FREE for a limited time


There’s one thing I’m absolutely convinced of: romance is real, and true love is a force for good in the world.

I have 957 paperback romance novels in my attic bedroom that prove it.

When my world crashes down around me and JJ Bailey shows up, he lays down the ultimate challenge: prove romance is real. The fact that JJ thinks romance is a farce only makes me more determined to prove him wrong.

Romance is real and love saves the day.

Hold my spreadsheets.


Life has gotten kind of stagnant. Then Lizbeth literally crashes into my world with her ideas of storybook romance and love. Her silky red hair drives me to distraction.

What the hell is a meet-cute anyway?

Romance does not save the world. I’ve been there. Failed at that. My parents divorce has convinced me that not even love can survive real life. Perpetual bachelorhood looks pretty safe to me.

Except Lizbeth is determined to help me see the light of love. I’m not about to let her win our little challenge, because I know the truth.

Forget her books. I’ll show her that romance is a construct, and love hurts.

LOVESICK is the second novel in the Coffee Shop series. This is a clean, standalone (second in series) contemporary romance with sizzle and spice — but no sex scenes. Guaranteed bantering and happily ever after.
