2. My in-case-of-emergency person is my boyfriend, Donny.

3. There is so much crazy weather lately! It was in the 60s …

Eleven by Carolyn Arnold – Book Review

Eleven by Carolyn Arnold – Book Review

Eleven by Carolyn Arnold is the first installment in the Brandon Fisher FBI series. Brandon is a new agent, still in his probationary period, when his team is called in on a grisly discovery. As the agents delve deeper into the case, things get personal.

I liked the author’s writing style. If I’m reading and I have to stop, I always try to get to the end of a chapter before stopping. However, with Eleven, it felt like the end of each chapter was a tiny cliffhanger and I needed to keep reading on. The novel felt realistic to me. It reminded me of watching episodes of some of my favorite television shows. The characters felt well-developed, and there were lots …

Bottle Cap Games for Kindergarten Readiness

As a mom of a preschooler, I am always looking for ways to user everyday objects to enhance her learning. Since I work at the library, Natalie is always surrounded by books and reading.

Hi-do! There’s nothing like getting a beautiful wildflower Kentucky mix delivered straight to your room. I’m sorry this is a little late. My delivery driver, Owen Godbye ain’t no count. He’s been forgetting deliveries. When he does remember, he’s late. He’s been late to work a few times this week.

Now, I’m not one to pack too many tales and you’re not from here so I don’t mind telling you, because who are you going to blab too?

Anyways, I heard he’s in a bad financial way. I’m not sure why because his mama, God bless her soul, left them with a fine Okra farm and if he’d and his kin folk …
