Beard of the Day


Happy, Happy Friday! Woo hoo! I finished all 14 interview and blogs. I finished a huge chunk of Christmas shopping. The fake tree is up, and the gingerbread dough is chillin' in the fridge. And I am looking forward to a strawberry martini with the Quirks this weekend. :)

This is one of my favorite photos of all time. The beard is scrum-diddly-icious. And just look at that bod! Swooning.....oh, Eric Bana, you are the man. 

I have been reading the equivalent of "comfort food" this week....re-reading all of my favorite Stephanie Laurens books, as well as my favorite Julie Garwood historicals. I also have a couple of reviews coming up soon....for Wend Petzler's Lady Thief, and for Annette Blair's Naked Dragon (both great reads). 

Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend!

You dear Penny are a machine! *high five* You go girl!

*sigh* I love Eric Bana. He's so terribly sexy.

Hi Juju! I'm so glad to see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel! And I agree about Eric....he is also great in comedies!

Goooo Penny! I wish I had that much accomplished at the end of the day. Seems I always have twice that much started but never finished :) Great pic of EB by the way. Between you and Mandi, you'll have me lovin' the hairy ones yet LOL.

I love to reread books when I'm in the mood to read and nothing new sounds as interesting I'll reread Jayne Ann Krentz, Lori Foster, Linda Howard or Lora Leigh to name a few some of their books I've reread more than once.

Penelope said...

Fiction Vixen-- well, I totally scrapped sending out xmas cards this year, and our house has no lights on it (we look like the Scrooges of the neighborhood)--so, believe me, I'm not getting everything done on my list!

Hi Sherry! I LOVE the Fighter Series by Lori Foster...hmm, maybe it's time for a re-read! Thanks for the great idea.....

Have you ever read her Winston brother series that lead to Say No To Joe that lead to more books centering around Visitation, North Carolina. You can't forget her Too Much Temptation. I love her books.

Penelope said...

Thanks, Sherry! I haven't read any of these...I will have to give them a try. What's your fav one I should start with....??

sherry said...

Here's the order they came out in
The Winston Brother's -good
Wild - real good
Say No To Joe - great ***
The Secret Life Of Bryan - real good
When Bruce Met Cyn - real good
Just A Hint Clint - real good
Jamie - great ***
These books are another series.
Too Much Temptation - one of my favorite ***
Never Too Much - good but not great
The Winston Brother's book has the first three brothers in it. They are all stand alone you don't have to read them in any order but each one will talk about the people in the past books. I listed them in the order that they came out. You should be able to start with Joe's book I really love it and have read it more than once same with Too Much Temptation I love it. This is my 2:30 in the morning book rating system. I hope this made sense to you I probably should have waited till I had some sleep but to late now. Any questions you can email me at sstrode@scrtc.com.
I think all of these are still available.
