Blue Monday and What are you reading Monday!

Blue Monday is hosted by Smiling Sally... check it out if you get a chance.
This week. I have a center piece filled with blue ball ornaments and pinecones.
They smell good too! I also have a blue and white fiber optic snowman that I
got at Dollar General a couple of years ago! I love snowmen!

This is also J. Kaye's book blog's What are you reading Monday!
This week, I finished three books.
I, Alex Cross by James Patterson
4 out of 5
Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane
4 out of 5
The Christmas Sweater on CD by Glenn Beck.
4.5 out of 5

This week I am working on
Dead to the World on CD by Charlaine Harris. A Sookie Stackhouse
Vampire Mystery.
The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman

Have a great week, hope you have all your christmas shopping finished, I know
I don't...

Mmm, I do love the smell of pinecones, and your blues are pretty. Happy Blue Monday, Joy.

Hi Joy, your pine cones and blue bulbs look very festive. I have always had a thing for pine cones. Mixing the pine cones with the bulbs is a great idea for a centerpiece. I too love snowmen. This one is a cutie.

I haven't had time to read anything of late. I will start the Geisha book after Christmas. I want peace and quiet to enjoy it. You are a reader like my mom was. She always read several books a week. She once read out her local small library and had to find another one.
She had more knowledge about things in her head that we always wanted her to be on Jeopardy. LOL.

No I haven't finished Christmas yet. I'm close.

Hugs, Jeanne

Cute photos; I've done very little decorating sadly. I see you read Shutter Island. I just got it from the library as I'd like to read it before we see the movie in Feb. The previews looked really scary.

I went to the library today and got a new Alice Hoffman book that I'm going to start tonight! Happy holidays to you!

Your glass container with the blue balls and pinecones is a lovely idea!
