Sleeping late on Saturday...

What do you love to do? I've decided that what I really look forward to is: sleeping in on Saturday morning! Yes, I know I am missing all the yard sale bargains and the coolest part of the summer days to garden... but those things can't compare with sleeping until I am good and READY to get up on Saturday morning (or afternoon!) So, now you've been warned - I INTEND to post things here often, but... I might just be sleeping instead!

Book Tag

This is a short, fun little tag that doesn't take too much thought. In this tag you find the closest book to you, turn to page 123 and tell us the fifth sentence.

So, Julie- the book closest to me is A Heart Like His by Virginia Pearce, and it has been a delight to read!!

hmmm... but as I look through, I see it doesn't HAVE 123 pages!! (short read- good for my life at the moment!!) so, from page 23, line 5:

She had come in just as weary as I but was leaving with an extra spring in her step.

Virginia Pearce was talking here about how her mother, Sister Hinckley, had such a kind and open hearted way with people around her that it would give her and others around her more energy and happiness. She was telling how she and her mother were tired and had gone to the store to get her mother a coat, and how her mother had engaged the alterations lady in conversation and how they both perked up from that, while Virginia sat there watching and realizing how that connection had made her mother and the seamstress feel better, while she sat there still feeling weary.

I'm all for a little more energy, happiness, etc...!

Tag? this is not a well read blog, since I don't add to it often, consider yourself tagged if you're reading this and feel free to respond by comment. I love books, and I love to hear about what people are reading!

I'm so glad you finally added to your blog! Keep up the good work! We need to see some pictures of the family. Oh, and I heard you went to Rascal Flatts? How was that? There's two ideas for blog posts for you to get you started! :)

I am reading the Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan. We're reading it for our book club. It is a hard read for me and I think I have finally figured out why. There is no joy. She never has happy moments, at least not yet.

And you should consider blogging every day. People who have faith and goodness should show the world that people like that exhist. You might just be the one to change somone's life for the better.

thanks for sharing, Lynne, and for your comments! I have read the Bonesetter's Daughter, and it was OK- but I liked Tan's other books better.
I am currently reading INFIDEL- which was a book club thing, but they already finished it and moved on ahead of me!
