The Last Day of July


Summer feels like it's galloping by. Our kids are busy (work and mission trip), a giant three day concert comes to town in two weeks and they are psyched, and then it will be time for FBC to head back to college. DH completes his first full week of work (again, we give thanks)and I have a wedding for a delightful couple tonight.

I've read some terrific books lately: Autumn Gospel and Winter Grace by Kathleen Fischer and Sin Boldly by Cathleen Falsani have all made me think. I could not put down The New Jew by Sally Srok Friedes, her memoir of converting from Catholicism to Judaism. Right now I'm reading purely for fun: The Wildwater Walking Club, Home Safe, and Prayers for Sale. I'm hoping for some quality time this weekend to sit outside and read.

Hope you have some dog days of summer time on your calendar, too.

"Sin Boldly" is on my not-read-yet shelf. I have been seriously considering a kindle.

I had every intention of spending my vacation by the pool reading. That will have to wait until I take my second vacation...which will be soon, I hope!

glad you are enjoying this time and reading some great books.

I always like your book recommendations. The first two I've read, but none of the others. Glad you're going to read "The Help," too.

Wow! Great reading list. "Breakfast at Sally's tops my list, in preparation for hearing author, LeMieux speak in October.

I did not do as much reading on vacation as I intended, but I managed to read half the The Agony and the Ecstasy.

I continue to be obsessed about reading about artists.
