C'est la Vie: Book Beguiled

It is hard to find time to read when you are a mom. Most of the time, I don't even bother opening a book because I know how long it will take me to finish it! I read blogs and magazines instead. (Okay, I'm only half serious about the opening of books.) Now this is not a hard and fast rule since I have dear friends (you know who you are... Krista) who manage to be a chronic reader in spite of her young children. And I too have my moments.


Last year it was the Twilight series. Couldn't put it down, stayed up all hours of the night, let the kids run rampant around the house, and skipped meals if necessary. A few other books have had this same effect on me by such authors as Nicholas Sparks and Francine Rivers. This week it's a book by Karen Kingsbury. I hesitate to tell you which one it is because she has so many best-sellers and my guess is that any one you pick would be a great read.

Here's my only note: she is an intensely Christian author. If you aren't into Jesus or prayer, you won't make it past page five. On the other hand, if you are looking for Christian fiction that has an interesting plot line and believable characters then I think you will really enjoy her writing.

I know many of my readers are book lovers too! Be sure to share some of your favorite authors or titles.

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
