Book Review and Prayer for my Mom

I just finished reading "V is for Vengeance". I loved this book. It makes my list of one of Sue Grafton's best. So if you are looking for a good book this is the one to choose!

On to more serious matters, my Mom found out today she has breast cancer. A lump was found last month in her routine mammogram exam. She had biopsy last Tuesday. Today she got the results it is cancer, it's real small about 4mm. She has a chose of having a lumpectomy or mastectomy. With chemo or radiations depending if its in her lymph nodes. I am asking prayer for her at this time and also for my dad since he is not in the best of health.

I've always have been fascinated by Bonnie & Clyde. My friend Theresa's husband got me this postcard while in Laughlin. Top car is Bonnie & Clyde's.The bottom one was Al Capone's then later restored by Dutch Schultz.

They are on display at Whiskey Pete's hotel & Casino in Primm NV. If you want to go see them call first because one visit I made they we closed. Someday I hope to see them. 1-800-386-7867

I made these little acorns for my book club tomorrow night. The book we read had a grove of trees so I thought these would fit right it with the book.
I made a much smaller amount than recipe. I didn't need a bunch left over that I had to eat. lol

Melt 1/2 bag of Mini-Chips (5 second interval in the microwave, stirring really good
Dip the flat end of the Hershey's Kiss into melted chocolate and top the bite-size NutterButter
Dip the flat end of a Mini-Chip into the melted chocolate and stick to the NutterButter
* I wish I could remember whose blog I got this recipe from, I would give her credit.

"A" for Allyssa

Here is a little craft project I did for Allyssa. I had made a pink one for Angelica (forgot to take picture), so Allyssa wanted one too.

I got the A at Michael's for about $3.  I used orange paint since that is her favorite color.

I gave it 3 coats of paint

Then I gave her some different choices

She picked the gems (top picture). But you could really customize these to anyone likes. They are so easy to make even kids could make them. Michael's sells all kinds of little pre-painted pieces. Even for boys you could use cars, trucks or animals.  The whole project cost very little.
