First Post of 2009

Just a word to say that I'm still around but not feeling like writing anything. I've been stuck into the newest book recently published by my blog friend and talented writer, Paula (see 'appleleaf" at left). I stayed up until 2:00 a.m. the day before New Year's Eve reading the entire thing! Now, I'm re-reading it to make sure I didn't miss anything. A habit I have, I'm afraid. I love re-reading books that I really enjoy. Check out Paula's blog and find out what this delightful writer is all about!

(The above is not a paid endorsement - just an enthusiastic reader and friend!)

Thanks for your kind words, Kate. I just came over to check blogs with tears in my eyes, having been frustrated over other computer problems, and this made me smile. Very timely encouragement.
I like re-reading books too. I always find something extra the second time.
PS About the cross-continental trip you mentioned, I'd really love to do that, although I can't imagine driving on the left side of a car.

What's the title of her book? And what type of book is it? I'm always looking for new books, though it would be better if I did not to read so many at one time... :)

Glad you're back in blog world, Kate!!

I need to get this book. :-)
I re-read books - but not right away.

The song is "Mother Freedom" by Bread, though I am personally not very fond of it.

I've been glad to get to know about Paula a bit, as she's become an inspiration for my daughter Katy who wants to be a published writer one day, too.

Hope all is well in your homeschool world...mine is as nuts as ever! :)

I read Paula's book, "The Risky Way Home" too. It was very gripping. I think I held my breath through a chapter or two. :o)

Peace and Laughter!
