Wishing all an "extreme-LEE" wonderful 4th!!  
Hope everyone has a lovely 4th! Traditionally Mark & I take the fuzzy baby and head to Magic Island to watch the BIG fireworks show, but I think this year we're going to avoid the crowd and stay home, watch my favorite musical (which prompted my strange spelling in the title above...) for the ten billionth time on DVD and have a quiet night in. :)

Sorry I've been a bit absent from LJ lately... lots of things going on at work and none of them any fun to talk about. :P But, looking at the extremely bright side of things - I have a great job, I love the folks I work with (what would I do without them?) and if there's any time that I feel thankful for those two facts, it's definitely now!

On a non-depressing note,... my life has been taken over by ebooks!! :P The fact that I can load and carry everything I want to read around on my phone is VERY addicting! It has also caused some extreme jealousy of a certain fuzzy dog who insists on nosing my screen while I read and turning the pages before I'm done! ;) I swear he's too funny!!

Happy and safe 4th to all!! HUGS!!!

I can understand your addiction. The Kindle I bought my wife for Christmas has changed her life.

Ah, Kindle!! It's so addicting, I have to say that most of my free time is now spent peering at my iPhone. I've now officially turned into one of those people who can't put their phone down for a second. ;) I need help.

I'm sorry about the things which are going on at work but glad that there is still a bright side. Hope the other things will change to the better soon!

I never tried ebooks because I thought your eyes are going to be tired too quickly using such an ebook reader. I think I can imagine your fuzzy dog turning the pages - seems like he reads faster than you! ;)

And should you don't watch the fireworks show, you perhaps like to watch this little dog and his firework:

:)

Happy 4th of July to you, Mark and Cooper too, of course. :) Thanks for your friendship, Sheri! Big hugs to you!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment, Sabine!!

And HAHA!! Cooper does probably read much faster than me! :D He's probably thinking that I take too long - which is why he tries to turn the pages for me! :D

At first I thought the way the iPhone is lit would make my eyes tired, but it's actually pretty easy to read - and easy to cutomize (fonts, backgrounds, size of text, etc.) I love it!

And thank you SO MUCH for your sweet 4th of July wishes!! That dog is adorable!! :)

Big HUGS and much love to you, Sabine!!
