Monday in the Jung household-

Glad to be home on this hot and humid Monday morning. We survived a week in Lafayette at Cyber Camp for my teenager and Mom & Dad exploring the city.

We ate at  some great places and i did some shopping.  No school shopping which everyone here was doing !  (that’s another post) But I did hit my favorite craft stores for some great supplies. I will be sharing some of those projects in the coming weeks.


Monday- 7/17

As a family we decided to drop our television service and go with a streaming service. We already had Amazon Prime and Netflix  – we just added HULU service.  We had only watched a few channels on satellite  and this was a big saving in money.

Today we are watching TV Classics- Rockford files, Simon & Simon, Remington Steele  & Air Wolf 

Have you tried any of the streaming services ? Have a favorite series you follow? Whats your thoughts on it?  Let Me Know –


Lunch Time – Hot dogs on the grill with sides.

Afternoon Plans – Yard cleaning (after the rain we had), Driving Lessons (hubby & son) and Mom has a new book waiting .

Supper – On the grill -its to hot to cook inside.

Have a great Monday ! Lisa

Out Sept. 26th

It’s a Christmas affair to remember as a Hollywood mogul discovers his inner cowboy—and the woman of his dreams—amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming. 

Raine McCall would take snow-covered mountains over a star-studded premiere any day. But when hotshot movie executive Mick Branson arranges dinner on Christmas Eve to discuss a work opportunity, she’s intrigued—by the offer and the man. She’s a no-makeup, no-frills single mom, who’s happy with her quiet life. Sharing chili cheeseburgers and sizzling kisses with Mick is sure heating up her holiday, but country girl and power player don’t mix…

It’s not just work that’s brought Mick back to Mustang Creek. Since he first visited to oversee a documentary, free-spirited graphic designer Raine has been in his head. Her approach to life is as unconventional as her quirky holiday ornaments. Their attraction is undeniable—and so are their differences. Putting down roots in the Wild West wasn’t in the script. But there are some Christmas gifts you can’t walk away from, even when they turn your whole world upside down…


Sept 26 Release Date

An unlikely attraction brings comfort, joy and unforgettable romance this holiday season! 

Librarian Julia Winston is ready to ditch the quiet existence she’s been living. She’s made a list of new things to experience, but falling for Jamie Caine, her sexy military pilot neighbor, isn’t one of them. Julia’s looking to conquer life, not become the heartbreaker’s latest conquest. But when two young brothers wind up in Julia’s care for the holidays, she’ll take any help she can get—even Jamie’s.

Happy to step in, Jamie reveals a side of himself that’s much harder to resist. Not only is he fantastic with kids, he provides the strength Julia needs to tackle her list. She knows their temporary family can’t last beyond the holidays, but the closer she gets to Jamie, the more she wonders if things could be this merry and bright forever…



Sept 26

In a heartwarming novel of secret wishes and family lost and found, acclaimed New York Timesbestselling author Fern Michaels creates a timeless Christmas story to cherish . . .

The flames of memory always seem to glow a little brighter during the holidays. Perhaps that’s why this time of year is so difficult for airline heiress Ivy Macintosh, as she faces thoughts of yet another festive season alone. Since the plane crash that claimed the lives of her husband and two children eight years ago, she’s been submerged in grief.

When eleven-year-old Holly Greenwood knocks on her door, lost and frightened after a forbidden visit to her singing teacher, Ivy’s self-imposed exile is shattered. Holly has an extraordinary voice, and wants nothing more than to perform in an upcoming Christmas musical. Holly’s father, Daniel, doesn’t allow music in their home, refusing to give a good reason why—just as he refuses to talk about Holly’s mother. Ivy has no idea how closely she and Daniel are linked by their tragic pasts, yet she’s drawn to the warmth she senses beneath his gruff exterior. And as Christmas nears, their shared concern for Holly begins to draw Ivy back into the world again . . . and toward a family who may need her just as much as she needs them . . .
