I actually read a book, and loved it!

So, a friends of mine recommended that I might read The Bean Trees, by Barbara Kingsolver. I have read very few books in my life even though I do love the idea of reading but find it too time consuming most of the time. Anyway, I finished this book in 4 days, yes that is a record. What a great book. There is a little bit of bad language in it which is not a big deal to me but may bother some so I am just saying that in case you read this and think you may want to check out the book. I am not going to say anything about it because I know a couple people who were thinking about reading it and I wouldn't want to spoil it. Great story though! And there is a sequel which I will be searching out soon.

Hope all you are having a warm and cozy night. There is a blizzard going on tonight so I have stayed indoors. Cooked a lovely meal and shared it with Joel as the rest of my family was at a birthday party and eating hot dogs. Joel was very appreciative about the yummy meal! God bless you all!

I was just so proud of myself because I actually read it so quick. Don't worry, I won't give anything away. We are braving the blizzard tomorrow to go to church, hope to see you there!

I was up with my sick boy last night. He is feeling better today. Me and the 3 boys are going to try and be there next Sunday.

Yeah. So proud of you. I love to read. I don't get to do it too much anymore with the kids but I still love it. Not to sound annoying but how are the rocks??? I'm just curious to see that's all. I find the whole process very intresting!! :)

Oh fun! I've been trying to read more as well. It's kind of hard after the day is done to stay awake in bed and read!

I enjoyed another of her books. No idea what the title was though.
