Meet my new niece!

Everyone meet my new niece! Isn't she a cutiepie? Her name is Mocha, she is a Australian Sheppard. She is only 1 week old, my sister & her family get to pick her up in 7 weeks. The mommy dog was rescued from an abusive home & shortly thereafter had these beautiful puppies.

We had an Aussie while growing up, Penny, she was a wonderful family pet, good with us kids. And my parents had another one, Radar, after all of us girls left home, and my Sis & her family had one, Dusty, who passed away a little over a year ago. So now they are ready for a new addition to the family. :)

When I asked Sis if my girl niece, Sydney who will be 4 shortly, was excited... she said not yet, she doesn't understand that the puppy will grow up into a dog, she keeps saying that she wants one Dusty's size! LOL Dusty was already grown when Sydney was born, so she hasn't ever known a puppy before. How sweet!


Now on to another subject.... I don't just love to knit & crochet, I love to read too. My favorite author is Nora Roberts, I think I have every book she has ever written! LOL

When I saw on Chan's blog that she took part in the Book Tag, I thought I'd post it myself.

For the book tag, here are the rules:
Pick a book at least 123 pages long.
Open that book to page 123.
Find the fifth sentence and post the next three.
Then tag five other people to do the same.

Now, this won't be everyone's page 123, I read some of my books on a pocket pc, ebooks. Keeps the house from being overrun with tons of books. I am quite obsessive with my books, I never want to get rid of them after I read them! And yes, I am one of those people who will read a good book more than once! :P And I do love a good murder mystery, as well as a good romance.

"Through the resort. When she goes on holiday, she often shuts off her pocket link."

"And her reaction?"

" I told her there had been an accident, that Mr. Anders was dead. I don't think she believed me, or understood me initially. I had to repeat it twice, and I felt, under the circumstances, I couldn't tell her when she asked what kind of accident. She said she would come home immediately."

Now, I'm not going to call names, so anyone who wants to join in please do! Fun to see what everyone else is reading. Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!!!
