Books I am reading now
Verse of the Day
Thursday, November 11, 2010
So on we go.....Things here are going smoothly along. Besides the temperament of a person I put up with daily. But that is something I have been dealt to deal with and I just do. I try not to let it bother me, along with other things. I am trying to grow in the Lord everyday.
Homeschool, as I've mentioned before, is going great this year! How much fun we have! Yesterday we did a Science experiment to make rain. It was awesome and I will blog about it later on my homeschool blog called Teaching at Home in a Christian Way. As my friend Tawny said on Facebook, "I'm so thankful that we answered the call from God to Homeschool". That is not word for word, but I can't find it to quote it exactly. But it was something along those lines.
I found a new Christian bookstore up here on the hill, about 15 min away in good traffic. In great traffic it would only be about 10! But that never happens on Meridian. So I plan on 15-20 min drive. But the store is great! It's a Christian bookstore (I know I already said that) and thrift. I did see some clothes and such in there but honestly, I just wanted books. lol The name of the store is Love's Treasury. Isn't that a great name? So inviting! The books were so fairly priced that I am going back probably this weekend! I can't wait! They had a large selection of books for homeschool. I mean large.
Speaking of Christian and bookstore. I found a new used book store called A Novel Idea in Puyallup. I went there to meet author Christina Weigand. She found me last year on Facebook because I was signed up to do NaNoWriMo and she lives in Puyallup. At that time, I didn't realize she was in the process of getting a book published! Well she did get that book published and it's called Aaron's Revenge.
I found the bookstore and actually got to meet her. The best part? She gave me a book for free for just making it there (it was quite a feat for me) and signed it. It is the next book that I am going to read. I have to finish White Fang first.
I have a busy day planned today. Trying to get my house all cleaned and ready for the holidays. Decorating is going to be kept at a minimal this year for Fall and Thanksgiving. I don't know where any of my decorations are at the moment and really am not going to try and get them from my garage. I'll save that for Christmas.
And since I have so much to do, I am going to start my work now. And that has to start by stopping my blogging. Oh I hate it when I have to do that. I could just keep on blabbing.
