When it All Falls apart…

It all comes together! 

I am not going to make excuses for my absence; apparently that is in bad taste in the blogging world.

But I will say I have turned over the keys to my apartment I have been in for 8 years, and loving my home.

I may not have a working washer and dryer yet, and the laundromat was not that bad.

I do not do change very well. 

Okay; I do not do change at all. This is my second time moving in 20 years, and it has put me to the test.

Changes at work, changes at home. But above all of that; I still open a book every single day. Beyond my Bible which is a given; I read from a book every day.

And I cannot wait to share my personal library with all of you!

Friday Funnies!

So True! I have been very good so far this year and only bought one book when I took my girls to Barnes and Noble. But I have to say; they have another library puzzle that I will be buying. Other than books, puzzles are my favorite thing EVER!

I have 3 framed puzzles of libraries in my bedroom, and cannot wait to add this to the mix! For my new personal library, that is.

I am so happy that my girls have been reading non-stop, and I started a new fantastic book that I cannot wait to review.

When you buy a new book, how long does it take you to open it, and ignore everything around you?

Me? About 10 minutes!

What are you reading right now?

Priceless – Luke & Joel Smallbone

What a fantastic story! It is a quick read, and I could have finished it easily in a day. If I wasn’t trying to move, homeschooling, and working, that is.

I did not get to see the movie while it was in limited theaters, but I will be purchasing it on Valentine’s Day when it is released to DVD.

If you have daughters, sisters, nieces, or any young woman in your life that is important to you; this is a must read. I became familiar with For King & Country because I only listen to Christian music in my vehicle. Although I cannot control what my girls listen to when I cannot monitor cell phones, computer access, I refuse to listen to the crap on the radio that is degrading while they are with me.

Now I don’t care what my 2 youngest girls may try to say; we had an amazing time at this concert and rocked it out! Yes; Christian music rocks. We had perfect seats, and literally had the band right behind us at one point.

Priceless the song, and Priceless the story are amazing, and whether you are an agnostic, Christian, Atheist; it does not matter. This message is universal. Seeing them Live? That was Priceless!

 

Gingerbread Cookie Murder – Joanne Fluke

Another great series I love; and this one includes recipes!

Okay; I have not tried the recipes, but they sound amazing! I have my staple of Christmas goodies I make every year, but I really need to hop outside of that small, boring box!

So, for the good stuff. A Christmas story full of murder and mayhem. What more could you ask for?

Hannah Swenson seems to be the most unlucky person you could ever meet. Unlucky at work, unlucky at love, and very lucky at finding murdered people. But, she has more than one suitor at any given time, so really; how unlucky is she?

This story has multiple murders, and multiple suspects. What more could one ask for on a negative-zero-wind-chill day?

Sorry; that is just my Michigan-me talking 🙂

While Hanna tries to run her cookie store, everyone else tries to run her life.

Have you read it? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know! And if you ever tried the recipes, I have got to know what you thought!
