2018 is Flying By!
Where has more than half a year gone? I can’t believe that Christmas is Five and half months away! Yikes!
Looking back to 2017 I made goals for 2018. Will I meet these goals in 2018? Well, here is what I proposed to do and what I accomplished so far.
GOALS ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR
- Publish 5 books. – Published 4 books – one more coming
- Read and review 90 books – Read 59 books & counting
- Support and reblog fellow authors sites – Supported several already
I’m going to work hard to make these goals. If any of my fellow bloggers or authors would like to be on my blog, please contact me here or by email – jjspina(at)myfairpoint(dot)net.
A special ‘thank you’ to all who have sent birthday wishes. It was a whirlwind of messages of which to respond. If I haven’t responded to yours I apologize. Thank you.
I had a wonderful day at my son’s house celebrating my birthday with plenty of delicious food, presents and of course cake! I did indulge (Marcia Meara) in a slice just for you. It was a delectable cake with whipped cream and strawberries over a vanilla cake. Yum! I refused to bring any home for fear I would eat it all. Sigh!
I received gift cards to three different restaurants and one to a craft store. I feel blessed to have such a loving family.
My husband gave me earrings and some charms for my Pandora bracelet to represent each book I have published. It is such a nice momento for my books.
Here are some photos of my birthday cookout.
All the guys below & granddog and two out of three grandsons, all the gals & granddog on next photo. One grandson was not here for the photo. He was at a play practice.

Yes, I am the midget in the middle! Sigh! I am the runt of the litter. LOL!
We had a lovely day and the weather cooperated – not too hot or cool.
Thank you for stopping by to read about my goals and my birthday celebration. My husband always says, “I don’t know of anyone who celebrates their birthday a whole month!” He’s right, I begin a week before my birthday and continue on for a week after. Ha! Every business now has our birthdays and sends coupons and gifts to us. That is how it has been non-stop. I am not complaining. It’s been fun!
