Well, here it is Wednesday night and still no children. “Mom” is making up for lost time and who could blame her! Justin and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time alone. We had supper at church tonight; he taught the freshman and sophomore guys and I went to chapel and heard a fabulous lesson on worship and preparing our hearts and minds for worship. Afterwards we decided to go to Barnes & Noble and share a grande latte and “browse”. We left our money in the car (besides the $5 for the latte) so we wouldn’t be tempted, it didn’t work and Justin had to run to the car to get the wallet for the 2 books we HAD to have! 🙂 I just started a great book today and now I’m anxious to finish it so I can start the next! My friend Susie is letting me borrow one she just finished, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Which so far is fascinating, moving and a page turner nonetheless! It’s about a girl in 19-century, rural China, who is going through the tradition of having her feet binded in order to make them small and petite, which would make her a more desirable bride. Interesting, very interesting… and something I know (or knew) very little about. Next on my list: The Shack, by William P. Young. This is a book that came highly recommended a few weeks ago when I got railed for my review of the Karen Kingsbury series (which by the way, I got 1/2 way through book 2 and decided I needed a break for a while, it was better than the first but not good enough for me to keep reading). Anyway, The Shack, sounds wonderful and the front cover quote says, “This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good!” Maybe I need to read Pilgrim’s Progress first, Justin tells me it’s in our personal library. Anyway, it’s 9:00 and we’re getting geared up and geeked out for a night in bed with our books!
ps- What is up with “spell check” anyone else notice it’s not working?
pss (or is it pps)- I think my husband may join me on the blog soon. My friend Ashley & her husband, Adam, share a blog and it’s really fun to read…. stay tuned!
