Monday's Muse

Monday, December 6

Sorry, but the image containing the Monday's Muse has been removed from this blog so as not to violate any copyright issues.  Thanks for your understanding!

I'm feeling kind of sad this Monday.  Last night I read Leontine's, from Leontine's Book Realm,  post regarding the loss of her soul mate...her husband at the end of November.  I was shocked when I read the news about her husband a few weeks ago, and since then she's written a post about the loss that made me cry.  

I can't even imagine what she is going through right now.  Losing a loved one unexpectedly is devastating  Losing a loved one at any time is devastating, but I think when it's sudden it's even worse because you have no time to prepare...sometimes no time to say your goodbyes.  I lost both of my grandparents on my mother's side many years ago in a car accident.  So I can understand a little bit of what she must be going through.  My heart goes out to Leontine, and anyone who reads this blog who has lost a loved one and is missing them this holiday season.

This week at Seductive Musings....
  • Tuesday Seductive Musings is going to be hosting a very special holiday "Princess" giveaway from Lila DiPasqua and her publisher Berkely, it's something you won't want to miss.
  • Thursday author Grace Burrowes will be my guest to celebrate her debut historical romance The Heir.
  • The rest of the week I hope to post a few reviews
  • If you missed the post last Friday, I began my epically big "Outlander" giveaway (going on  throughout the month of December).  I announced the first winner yesterday, but there are still many more chances to win so you still have time to enter.  You can click on the banner above to enter and learn more.
In other news.  I mentioned a few weeks ago a new Google calendar in my sidebar so that you could see what was upcoming without me having to update it....but I noticed when I wasn't signed into Google that all you were able to see were holidays...oops ;(   I'm usually signed into my Google account when viewing and working on the blog so I didn't notice the quirk except for by accident. I think I've fixed that by changing the settings on the calendar so you should now be able to view the upcoming guests and events.

I think that is just about it.  I hope you have a great Monday, and hope you take just a few moments out of your busy day to cherish the ones you love.

I read about Leotine's loss, too. What a tragic loss. I hope she has plenty of love & support near. =(

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
