It’s Wednesday, which is typically my day off. What am I doing today? Waiting for our brand new fridge to be delivered. There was nothing really wrong with the old one, except it was 16 years old and we figured it’s days were numbered; the handle to the freezer broke off some time ago, and you can’t actually adjust the temp on the fridge, but it’s set at normal. At work a while back there was a giveaway for several appliances and I put in for the fridge and won! Then I realized the new fridge is too big for the spot for our fridge. So we needed to hire an electrician to put in an outlet somewhere else in the kitchen. Then I had to call around and find a moving company. So, not as cheap as a raffle ticket, but way below sticker price for a KitchenAid French Door refrigerator.

What are you currently reading?
I just received an ARC from a Goodreads giveaway: Churchill’s Secret Messenger by Alan Hlad that I’m starting tonight. The release date is in April.
“From the USA Today bestselling author of The Long Flight Home …Recruited from Churchill’s typing pool to become an undercover spy in German-occupied France, a young woman from London bravely endures daring missions, audacious escapes, and harrowing imprisonment in a Nazi concentration camp, risking everything for the country–and the man–she loves.”
Also working on The Kennedy Debutante by Kerri Maher because I’ve been wanting to read it since it came out and the ebook is on sale for $2.99 right now.
London, 1938. The effervescent “It girl” of London society since her father was named the ambassador, Kathleen “Kick” Kennedy moves in rarified circles, rubbing satin-covered elbows with some of the 20th century’s most powerful figures. Eager to escape the watchful eye of her strict mother, Rose, the antics of her older brothers, Jack and Joe, and the erratic behavior of her sister Rosemary, Kick is ready to strike out on her own and is soon swept off her feet by Billy Hartington, the future Duke of Devonshire.
But their love is forbidden, as Kick’s devout Catholic family and Billy’s staunchly Protestant one would never approve their match. When war breaks like a tidal wave across her world, Billy is ripped from her arms as the Kennedys are forced to return to the States. Kick gets work as a journalist and joins the Red Cross to get back to England, where she will have to decide where her true loyalties lie—with family or with love . . .
On Audiobook, I’m listening to Danielle Steel’s Blue
Ginny Carter was once a rising star in TV news, married to a top anchorman, with a three-year-old son and a full and happy life in Beverly Hills—until her whole world dissolved in a single instant on the freeway two days before Christmas. In the aftermath, she pieces her life back together and tries to find meaning in her existence as a human rights worker in the worst areas around the globe.
Then, on the anniversary of the fateful accident—and wrestling with the lure of death herself—she meets a boy who will cause her life to change forever yet again. Thirteen-year-old Blue Williams has been living on the streets, abandoned by his family, rarely attending school, and utterly alone. Following her instincts, Ginny reaches out to him. Leery of everyone, he runs from her again and again. But he always returns, and each time, their friendship grows.
