Book of the Moment and a website for book lovers

I just got this in the mail yesterday, and I can hardly wait to read it. My book of the moment is:

Also found this awesome (and amusingly titled) website: It's THE site for people who never get tired of looking at bookshelves filled to overflowing. I love it!

Questions for you all, my lovely lady friends.


I've got a few questions and would love to read your responses, if you choose to reply. There are so many of you on here that I never hear from, and I'd love it if you chose to chime in, as well.

1) What faith do you follow?

2) Is it the faith you were raised in or not?

3) Would you ever consider converting to another faith?

4) If you are a convert/revert to a faith, why did you choose to convert/revert to it?

5) Do you think that once you choose a faith for yourself it is permanent, or do you think that a faith can work for you for a time (be it months or many years), after which you search for another to better meet your needs?

Swimsuit sale at HijabGirl.

Just a quick stop in to say hello and tell you ladies about the swimsuit sale at HijabGirl. (I get their e-mail fliers.) All of their swimsuits are 50% off right now. Granted, they're already cheaper than Ahiida (although I love my Burquini), but now they're much cheaper! If you've been wanting one but found them too expensive in the past...Now's your chance to get one for the summer. : )

That's my promo blurb for the night.

All is well. It snowed last night, so the mountains are absolutely gorgeous. I really want to get some photos, but it was too hazy most of the day. Maybe tomorrow it'll be clear. : )

Happy New Year's, happy day!

I am happy today. But, before I delve into the reasons why, let me wish all of you a happy new year! We actually did have a ball of lights hanging from a crane for the New Year's countdown -- and we got to celebrate it several hours ahead of you guys, which seemed kinda silly, but oh, well. It was pretty. And our "friends" outside the wire sent us some pre- and post-New Year's "fireworks" to help us celebrate. Wasn't that nice of them? : P

But, really. I'm happy because I've gotten e-mailed back on one job and two e-mails out of the blue from HR guys who'd seen my resume on an internet resume site and wanted to know if I was interested in applying for the job they each had to offer. And they're all in the place I was intending to move back to after this deployment, anyway! I talked to one guy on the phone and I think it went pretty well. I'm so excited and nervous... The possibility of getting hired by one of the two companies for my dream job in the city I want to live in is just too much to take!

I really want to run around outside jumping and hollering, I'm so happy right now. ^_^ Yaaaaaaay!
