psssst. Anyone here?

This may have been my longest blog hiatus ever! It was completely unintended, and I can offer no explanation. Blogging just didn’t happen. Since my last post, I’ve turned 50 and read some books, among other things like working and sleeping and chores. Paul and I got away to the beach for my birthday, and we’ve visited my peeps in Chattanooga, and they’ve visited us. I’ve done a little knitting, but it’s just somehow remained in the knitting bag during these sauna-like days of summer.

I will try to get back in the blogging habit, but for now, I’ll leave you with a few random thoughts:

~ johnIf you’re looking for a good Bible study (where you actually study your Bible, and not a book that occasionally references a few verses here or there), I highly recommend Kathleen B. Nielson’s studies. I’ve done several. Right now I’m working through John: That You May Believe, and it is soooooo good.

~ I’ve read quite a few books this summer (instead of blogging, right?). Here are a few of my favorites:

The Lake House – Kate Morton (and it’s $2.99 on Kindle right now!)

Kitchen Confidential – Anthony Bourdain   The man could write.

Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption – Bryan Stevenson  I want everyone I know to read this one.

The Paris Wife – Paula McLain  Books about adultery are usually not my favorite, but this one is well-written, and so thought-provoking (and it sent me down a Google rabbit hole of checking out Ernest Hemingway’s tragic family members). There are some lines that will stick with me.

I hope to be back soon. If you’re still here, thanks ever so much for not giving up on me!

  1. *wave* I miss the old skool blogging days. . . For the first time in ages, I spent awhile just surfing around blogs and such. So happy to see you!

    Btw, since you enjoyed The Paris Wife, you must read “Moveable Feast” by Hemingway, if you haven’t already.

    Have you read the one about him actually also working as a spy? If so, thoughts?

so what do you think?
