Every Day In May…

Every Day In May…

Hi to all my readers and yes, it’s been a while since I have written and posted a blog but I just went through a huge transitioned and moved and I’ve been trying to get my house unpacked all decorated and just the way I like it. Our home is our haven and it should be completely comfortable and we should love to be in our homes. All of this is many more blog posts and there will be many more blogs to come in the future because I love my new home and everything about it. Moving on I want to tell you why I’m writing this blog and I’m so excited about it!

There is a blog I read by Harper Grae and I just love her blog! She blogs about book hauls, unboxing, TBR list, what she plans to read. I am an avid reader and I just love and enjoy her blog. Were bookworms together!

She suggested that we do Every Day In May and write a blog post every day and as you can see it’s May 11th and I failed some and I own it but, here I am and for me, it is about accountability and I thought it was a great idea! I think all writers and bloggers at times need a push or a nudge to write and what better way. At times I know that I’ll have trouble with thoughts and what to write. I keep a clipboard and ink pen always on my night stand. It may seem weird to others but thoughts come to me and night and I’ll grab my pen and clipboard and begin writing away.

I love technology but I still today am in love with putting pen to paper. I probably own more ink pens than anyone I know in this area. Usually, if the pen doesn’t glide across the page, let’s just say a pen has to write a certain way.

I went on and on enough about writing, ink pens, blogging, planning for it and all that goes along with all we write and do on our blogs! I love the blogging community! Were all so kind and willing to lend a hand or give advice or just be a great friend and I hope you’ll join along for Every Day In May and we can learn about each other and see what’s going and what we are involved in or what’s coming up in May!

I didn’t intend for this blog to be short or it seems short but, I did have to do some maintenance when I logged on. We as bloggers always want things to be better and there is always a reason to smile! Have a great weekend…

Next blog post: I’ll be telling you all about my new home and I’ll have photos to and I hope you will visit again…

Join along for the fun!

Moleskins are great to!

A Day of Travel & New TBR Reading List…

A Day of Travel & New TBR Reading List…

Well yes, I am well stocked up and I have found me some new authors even though they have been around for sometime and even though I just recently learned of these authors that have some great reading material and there’s nothing more I love than being lost in the greatness of a novel wrapped in throw to keep me warm and a hot cup of coffee or tea!

This is quite a start and there’s more to come. Don’t mind the back ground decor because we live in an older mobile home and besides were southern and we don’t need much. Plenty of hearty healthy meals, good TBN religious shows to to watch and plenty of good, good reading material. We love John Gray! My husband doesn’t miss a morning without him.

Now for my next TBR stack of books here we go! I have many great reads ahead and more to come as hour as your welcome to check on Goodreads.com for my account to see and follow along with me about all I read.

We’ve also gotten a new bulldog and he doesn’t like his new sweater even though I can not get him to wear it or get used to it, maybe another one sometime I hope in time. She’s a female and not wanting any part of this pretty purple sweater so hopefully soon. It’s winter and cold here and my babies have to be warm when going to the potty see, I’m sure you understand dogs are family to here in our home.

It was such a pretty day on this day that we had traveled from Whitley City, Ky. to Oneida, Tenn. and we had just gotten our first snow and boy did it continue to snow here and I wanted to share some photos because I know that I enjoy seeing photos from all others blogs and their lives and knowing, learning and understanding about and where we all come from. I have edited these photos to make them smaller because I didn’t realize until later that the pictures in this blog were huge and I have nowdownsized them some for my readers.

Here is more reading material so I have plenty for at least a couple weeks.

We had an errand day in the cold pretty photos though. Other wise I am enjoying my faith filled journey as and being a housewife for as long as God’s grace fills me and equips me to keep spreading his word and love along with faith and spreading and blogging about all he’s blessed myself and our family with.

Until then I’ll be enjoying my journey as a house wife and blogging about all things domesticated, housewife, vintage and all things we love in our kitchens and homes and taking care of my family as I love all of the newest things I can because I just love to learn, write, and blog about all new things!

Until next time I hope you’ve enjoyed and please come visit again bad keep returning! God Bless…

Come visit again I have many things to blog about coming this winter season! Thanks for stopping by…

The Great Alone –

The Great Alone –

This is my current read and I’m not finished with it yet but I still wanted to blog about it because it’s such an interesting book and I think anyone who loves to read as I do will definitely enjoy this book because it’s that good!

It starts off in 1974 and Leni that’s telling the story in the book is 13 bit it’s still an adult read by author Kristin Hannah and it’s an amazing adventure you’ll feel lime your there!

This is the old bear that leads up to trying to attack Lani’s father all while he’s driving here to Alaska when a guy that was in Vietnam with her father that died while serving our country leaves him land in Alaska in which he receives a letter from the man’s father.

It’s a triumphant and challenging time for all of them as a whole and a family only Leni is caught in the riptide of her parents passionate, crazy, stormy relationship, and how much they truly love each other even though she doesn’t understand it. Her father can’t hold down a job, he drinks to much and he doesn’t treat her mother to well either that she can see of and he has flash backs and nightmares about Vietnam that makes things even worse at home and elsewhere. She is desperate for a place to belong, stay in one school and have some actual real friends for a change.

Her mother Cora will do anything or go anywhere for her father whim she loves with all her heart.

At first Alaska seems to be the answer and everything is going great as planned. In a remote corner of the state in an independent community and the people love the life they’ve created here in Alaska of strong men and even stronger woman.

But, as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to come apart as well.

The long sunlit days and the generosity of the locals helping them out and preparing and with dwindling resources there help is making up for what they don’t have because they came to Alaska very unprepared for the more than fierce winters.

As winter does descends on Alaska, so do the perils outside, pale in comparison to threats from within inside there home.

In their small cabin, covered in snow, and 18 hours of darkness in the book winter and at night, Leni and her mother know the terrible truth: they are on their own in The Great Alone and in the wild there is no one to save them but themselves.

It’s a portrait of human frailty and resilence, and how a family learns to survive as the modern American pioneer is revealed in the Spirit if a vanishing Alaska, a place of incomparable beauty and danger.

This is an up all night read and you won’t be able to put it down. How Kristin Hannah writes about Alaska it’s as if we’re right herewith them.

It’s that great of a book! I had to write and blog about it now that’s how good it is!

Your going to want to add this book to your TBR list for sure this summer!

I anxious to see his this book ends but I am enjoying the story so much!

It’s an exceptional masterpiece…

You may head over to goodreads to read all reviews.  I just can’t stress enough how great if an author Kristin Hannah is! I hope you enjoy this review!

Happy Earth Day…

Happy Earth Day…

Happy Earth Day! This was always a pretty big day in school and I was telling my husband that we would always get to take a tree home to plant when I was in elementary school. I don’t know if area schools S do this but, I think they should. This has always been a special big day for me.

We went to church this morning and our pastor delivered a good message about how the enemy will take over your mind if you allow him to so don’t!

Back to earth Day! It’s been gloomy here and now the sun has decided to shine and yay! We’ve had a late lunch and I wanted to write a short blog on this earth Day. I have ask if our utility company gives away trees to be planted and they don’t unfortunately, but the lady did tell me to check with the forestry, and I may because we do have room to plant some more trees.

Trees are always good for our breathing and oxygen.

I would also like to plant some fruit trees here just to see if they would grow and for the fruit to of course. I have read about dwarf trees also and this would definitely be the way to go until I was able to see if they would grow or not since we have fierce winters here. Here are some photos I found of some dwarf fruit trees.

The first dwarf tree which is a lemon tree it did say this was 3 years after delivery. I would love to have a lemon tree like this to walk out to and pull off fresh lemons as I need them and their uses in several different ways to clean and sanitize to in our homes as housewives I think we use them quite frequently. Nice thought and I think so to!

Here is a book I found on nature that I have put on my Kindle to learn some new things about nature to.

It sounds very interesting and it has all types of different subjects for what different things mean as to a world filled with clues. How the root of a tree indicates the sun’s direction, the big dipper tells the time, a passing butterfly hints at the weather, a sand dune reveals a prevailing wind, and the scent of cinnamon suggests altitude. This book is to help the reader understand nature as he does with 850 tips for forecasting, tracking, and more writes Tristan Gooey…

Happy Earth Day again and enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!

Evening church service and tomorrow is Monday again. Let’s see what we can get into and blog about this week…

Being a Lifeway Book Blogger…

Being a Lifeway Book Blogger…

I wanted to write a blog about this lovely book I’m reading call “In Bloom” and the author is Kayla Aimee at her blog and website at kaylaaimee.com.

I’ll search on Christian websites like L £ H Book Blogging and search through there website because I’m always reading some type of material when I’m not writing here on my blog or being domestic and I had seen where you could apply to be a L £ H Book Blogger and I applied and I had to eagerly continue to check my email because I would receive Christian books for free in the mail and as I read them I write a review and a blog post and select my next title and continue to be the bookworm that I am.

What a deal!

It said I would hear from the site within a week but it was only a couple of days and I was approved and I received my first title in just a couple of days and this is the book I’m currently reading.

I will be writing my review and blog when I’ve finished the book which I’m really enjoying and I will be reading more of Kayla Aimee’s titles and books for sure. She has a titled called Anchored I would love to add to my TBR list.

To Be Read…

That’s all I’m going to blog for now about this book. No spoiler alerts here but, it really is a wonderfully written book and I love how she’s so honest about all circumstances in her life. This book is about how every woman wants to identify, replace and uncover our purpose and that’s all I will blog but, I will definitely be a book blogger for as long as Lifeway will allow me to be a part of this.

You just wouldn’t believe how happy and excited I am about this. My books are like family to me if that makes sense and I cherish all on my bookshelf. Until next time that’s all for now about this title. There will be much more to come here on my blog about most certainly about this book! What a great author Kayla Aimee.

I’m currently on page 109 and I’m enjoying the process…
