On a school buzz

What have you read lately?

Well thanks for asking!

There is the answer. Both finished today. 

1.  The Book Thief. Was recommend by a friend. It was good read took less than two weeks...if that helps describe. It is historical fiction. Not my usual genre but I enjoyed it. It was about a girl in Nazi Germany and her life and experiences. That is all I am telling as not to spoil anything. 
It is also a movie and I am looking forward to that! 

2. Satisfied. The book our pastor wrote and what we are using in our small group. This was also very good. Eye opening and thought provoking. Lots of practical info and challenging at the same time. 

If you are up for a new read I would recommend both! 

Happy reading!

5 week. 6 days

Left.... Haha. Day one of plant babysitting. 
The parents are off to Florida and my moms babies are left in my hands. 

This time around only one was transported to work. The rest stayed home...I have a watering schedule and a how to. 

Feel a little more positive about this round of babysitting. 

Check out the plant that traveled to work. She needs water every other day....

So I will water tomorrow :)

Wish me luck! I think I can. I think I can.

winter pure MI

through the blustering windy snow
to the mountains of Mt. Holiday
to the valleys of the east bay
the snow covered ground
now that is pure MI
[or whatever lovely things Tim Allen usually says]

That is what we experienced this weekend with the Bonneys and Cj and Ash
a little relaxing
a little snowshoeing
a little walking on the frozen bay
and some games! UNO! 

good good times


East bay

and SO much snow
