Jam!! and coffee and books

I made jam last night!
We're not even huge jam/jelly eaters, but I had apricots, so why not?
I didn't make very much, because, like I said, we are not big jam/jelly eaters.
My friend Karen sent me a link to this recipe--it has wine in it, and since I probably drink more wine than eat  jam in my life, I thought it might be a jam I would love. 
It smelled SO GOOD, while cooking--it included a vanilla bean.
Anyway, I can't wait to try some on an English muffin when I get back from my walk. 
A hot, crispy English muffin with butter and apricot jam dripping down into all those tiny crevices.

I'll let you know how it is. 

While I am enjoying that English muffin, I just might start the 2nd in this series by Nalini Singh.
I read this first book  "Slave to Sensation" and I really liked it.
It is SOOOO out of my box---one of the main characters was a changeling and could--well, change.  Into a Panther.
Yes I know.  No snickers from the cheap seat okay?!
A Panther, yes.
And the other main character was a Psy---someone with no emotion. 
Or so we think.
AHa! or so we think.....

Anyway, it really was a fun read.
And  I really did buy the 2nd in the series...Visions of Heat.

I'm so out of my box here.
But I like it.

from Goodreads:

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.
In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...
Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

Carl does enjoy a little jelly but I never eat it but I'd probably give it a try if it had beer in it. lol

Hey, sometimes you need a mindless read.

That is the best jam I've ever tasted. Hope you like it!

Ooh, we love apricot jam here. If you need to relieve any of your supply we'll take it. I need to move that author up. She has been on my TBR for ages.
