A treasure trove of fine books

I'd like to share with you some wonderful books that you may not have otherwise heard of.  They are wonderful books for nature study and I found them quite by accident at a used book sale at the local library.  Birds at Home is the first find that is simply beautiful.  What a wonderful BIG book filled with information and gorgeous illustrations of colorful, beautiful birds!

The next book that was a gem to find, was The Golden Almanac, by Dorothy Agnes Bennett.  This book is going to be so much fun to use with the kids and we're about to start with it this coming week!  I'm so excited to put much of the activities inside to use.  It's filled with anecdotes dealing with the seasons, hints and tips, and all sorts of useful information regarding anything a child would wonder about the year.
I'm so happy to be able to share these special finds with you.  I wouldn't want any of you to miss out on such great books.

God Bless,

My New Favorite Friend....

Okay.  So perhaps a coffee maker shouldn't be a friend.  But it is to me.  It saves me oodles of time and makes the best drinks around!  

This invention is truly the best thing since the microwave. (Not that I use that much ;) But should you be able to pick one of these up for yourself, you really won't regret it.  I resisted getting one for so long.  Figuring that it's just a coffee maker, I don't really need a coffee maker.  No.  It's so much more.  I no longer have to waste an entire pot of coffee after deciding that I only want one cup.  Or have to wait for it to brew.  With the Keurig, after it primes for 4 minutes, it's then ready to churn out cup after cup.  I love the variety of coffee and tea I get to try, although my personal favorite is the Celestial Seasonings Black English Breakfast Tea.

The Grove Street Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa is also to die for.  I'll probable give up one of my favorites for Lent. 

I feel the need to add that I'm not being reimbursed anything to give this review.  I've paid for everything with my own funds and will continue to do so.  ;)

God Bless,

Happy Ash Wednesday!

Well, I suppose most of you wouldn't really consider Ash Wednesday to be a "happy" occasion.  What with the fasting and abstinence.  But I find it joyous to begin the Easter season in such a way.  The promise of the savior, dying for our sins and setting us free.  We are starting the day following him on the path to the gold streets of heaven.  Rejoice!
