It's Blue Monday atSmiling Sallys Blog when we post our favorite blue things..
this week I saw some dinnerware I really really like at Target. They are called
Medallion and they are on sale this week at Target
Take a look! My birthday is coming up maybe I can give hubby a big hint...hehehe

Also at Sheila' Blog, Book Journey it is time for "It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?"
She amazes me with how much she gets done in one week! This week I am still listening
to My Name is Memory by Ann Brasheres and I started reading my book for Blogging
for books.. This week it is a vampire tale by Tracey Bateman, "Tandem".
I didn't get a whole lot of reading in this week since I picked up two extra shifts
at work. Here's a little bit about the title from Amazon.
Product Description
As obsession and loss become dark partners, how far must the people of Abbey Hills go to survive?

Six months ago, brutal murders shook the small Ozark town—murders that stopped after a house fire reportedly claimed the killer’s life. Lauryn McBride's family auction house has taken responsibility for the estate sale of one of the victims—the enigmatic Markus Chisom. Submerging herself in Chisom’s beautiful but strange world, Lauryn welcomes the reprieve from watching Alzheimer’s steal her father from her, piece by piece. She soon realizes that centuries-old secrets tie Abbey Hills to the Chisom estate and a mysterious evil will do anything to make sure those secrets stay hidden. Even the man who grew up loving her may not be able to protect Lauryn from the danger.

When Amede Dastillon receives an unexpected package from Abbey Hills, she hopes it might be the key in tracking down her beloved sister, long estranged from her family. Visiting Abbey Hills seems the logical next step in her search, but Amede is unusually affected by the town, and when mutilated carcasses begin turning up again in the small community, the local law enforcement isn’t sure if they are confronting a familiar evil or a new terror.

Two women brought together by questions that seem to have no answers. Can they overcome the loss and darkness threatening to devour them—or will their own demons condemn them to an emotional wasteland?
