Book Review for January
During the Holiday Break, there was ample time for reading - very exciting, I must admit! These are rare and fun times to have! Yahoo!
With the 50th anniversary of JFK - we watched the TV special with Rob Lowe in "Killing Kennedy" in November. Wow! - my mom was pregnant with me in November of 1963. I also will hold my own 50th anniversary soon - anyways - historical events are always intriguing.
On that line, I have been a big fan of Stephen King - or used to be... I haven't bought a book of his in 5 years until I finally grabbed the "11/22/63" - and so glad that I did! What a story! It's still a typical Stephen King story, but mixed with the facts - he really spins a great tale! It's so fictional - but the blast from the past storyline - along with recipes - is great!
SO! I then grabbed "Doctor Sleep" - Stephen King's newest book out - it's the sequel to "The Shining" and so far... Oh my! It's a scary one - I'll let you know later on this one when I do finish it. I don't much care for the language of King and/or it's racy edginess - but the stories he can tell - very, very entertaining.
On a much different note - a new devotional book, given to me by a childhood friend, that I am THOROUGHLY LOVING - "Jesus Calling". I do believe I will be buying several copies to give as gifts - it's that good! The devotionals always hit a nerve and it also serves up scriptures to read and support the thought of each day!
There are many more books on the list to read for this 2014! Excited to share with you what I have read and please do the same! Always looking for a good book to read!
Thanks for stopping by - remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...
This blog is mainly about our family. Kyle will do a "hodge-podge" of items. Melissa will frequently post recipes, art projects, pics, card projects, articles ... and the boys...The "A Team" hmmm~ we shall see! Let us know what you think. We love to receive your comments and emails! (~:
Blogging is fun and is an outlet - I am just like you! My days are full of "to do's", morning till night. Sound familiar? When I DO find the time in the day, I love crafting - totally into paper-crafting at the moment (6 years!). That's why my blogs are often full of the projects that I'm working on. As a mom to 4 males(1 at-home son, 2 college sons and 1 husband), that time is often limited. I have been creating art items, cards, doo-das, painting, claying, anything "artsy-fartsy" ALL my life. Each one different from the last. It is something I truly enjoy.
You could even say it is a passion. Part of that passion has been sharing with others and attempting to teach them - hence my 2nd job of teaching Art in the high school and often my clubs and other groups that I'm involved in - it's just who I am. I am very lucky to be able to live in a small town and share! So! Please don't think that I'm a "kiss up" or trying to out-do someone else... I'm giving to give... I make things to give - it's just me!
