Books & Reading to  means a time for magic / dreams. – I was that shy kid in school who always had her head in a book and worked at the Library and Dreamed  about places i would go or adventurers to be had  -while everyone else did other things like (sports) I still love to escape into a new book  at the end of the day – and find magic.   Lisa

A is for Apple

This Monday I sit here and remember everything that is going on – past and present.

It’s 9/11 and It’s time to remember – those that gave all and share those memories with others.

Today we think of all our family and friends  battling the hurricane Irma in Florida. Stay safe  all .

Also as Fall slowly moves into Louisiana – I start thing about Harvest time. We lived in Michigan for many years and a great family time was found picking Apples at neighboring orchards. Picking Apples and enjoying the fall festival at the orchard always signaled the beginning of Fall. And the cold weather was coming around the corner. Then a trip  home and to make Apple sauce and Apple butter in the kitchen to enjoy. Lisa


Apple Sauce

I made for my son as a baby.

Peeled and sliced apples.

Add a small amount of water and cook down

Run through food mill or blender.

  • You can  add brown sugar ,cinnamon  and more water and cook to a chunky style also.


Slow Cooker Apple Butter

Apples- peeled,cored and sliced.

Add – sugar,cinnamon,touch of salt and vanilla. Cook on Low for 10 hours.

9/11 Never Forget –

In Remembrance-


Lesson Plans from 9/11 Memorial .org

It’s been 16 years since this event has happened. I will always remember sitting at my sons doctors getting ready for a check up as this came up on the TV screen.

Let’s always remember those that gave all – Lisa

Tuesday * My Happy Day !

It’s Tuesday ! My Happy day-

Tuesday’s are changing a little – Today’s Post is my Book Blog and my love for Books.

If you follow my site you know One of the things I love is books -all kinds. And when I started Lisa * Everyday Life – I had a book page and featured lots of books. But I found as this site evolved (my word of the day) -it had clogged up the stream with promos, book tours and features. At that point I opened my Book Blog-featuring Review,Promos and Book Tours. So go over and Check it Out!

Friday’s Book Club It’s After 5 Somewhere * Book Club post featuring a drink,food and a book feature,

Lisa Book Blog @ LEL



Now – I find my self and others missing some of my book post  from here.  Today starts my new book and social post. I promise No book tours or Promo’s here. Just honest Reviews and Books that I think you might like. With the Holidays coming up Books are a great gift – and I will be featuring books for all taste and ages.

Today’s Book is a great Contemporary Romance book.  I am sure you will enjoy.


And Why Tuesday it’s Release Day for New Books !!

There is no standard, although Tuesday is fairly common since they are also tracked by Nielson. They are often on shelves before their official release date, unless there is a large advertising campaign that indicates a specific date. Friday is also a very popular day to release books.

  • PS – Yes! I am shopping today -but don’t tell.  Lisa





Tuesday * Book Recommendation

Today is Tuesday ! And I am sharing this book from Net Galley –



Book 3 Buy Link

In the third book of Heather Heyford’s series, set in Oregon’s wine country, a returning war hero and his “friend with benefits” discover that some vintages only improve with time . . .
Uncorking the Truth
When the town of Clarkston, Oregon, welcomes Captain Sam Owens home from the service, Sophia “Red” McDonald is first in line. The sassy psychotherapist has known Sam since they were kids, and the grown-up Sam is darned near irresistible. With his abs of steel and those gorgeous hazel eyes, he could have any woman he wanted. Naturally, Red is thrilled when he takes her hand . . .

She’s a modern woman, happy to canoodle with the sexy soldier, no strings attached—until her heart changes the rules. Suddenly, after months of casual hookups, Red finds she wants more. She longs to possess Sam body and soul. But his warrior’s heart was wounded long before he joined the service. As a therapist, Red has ways of making him talk. Only if Sam opens up and spills his secrets can they finally have everything their hearts desire . . .


Lisa’s Tuesday Book Review – is this 3rd book in this Contemporary Romance series.  I missed book 1-2 and was able to pick up with the story and characters just fine. But I would definitely read the other books -so you get the full background of the story of Sam and Red. Both of this characters were great but Sam had some secrets he needed to work out. But Red is a capable female lead and a perfect match for head strong Sam. This book was a wonderful read and I strongly recommend it with a glass of wine.  Lisa
