Try to win a toolset!

Who wouldn't want a pink toolset? How about blue?

Multi-tasking Moms and Ladies Tools Online is giving one toolset away, pick pink or blue.


I ate at Chick-fil-A today, stopping in while running many errands (ok, shopping!). It was very good, as always. The cup says to go to the website but going there just now said it wouldn't be ready until October 9th. Mark your calendars!! :)

Fall Into Reading 2007

I love reading. Mostly fiction. Mostly mystery or suspense or crime or thriller. Something that moves fast and keeps me interested or surprises me at the end.

Being busy with 4 kids, homeschooling, housecleaning (ha!), etc. I don't get to read as much as I'd like so I love this challenge put on by Katrina at Callapidder Days.

Without further ado - the list:

  1. Christy by Catherine Marshall. My husband gave me the DVD set of the TV series with Kellie Martin for my birthday and I want to try reading the book again (I started several years ago but could NOT get through it, I understand now that once you get through about the first four chapters it's much better!).
  2. When Sinners Say I Do by Dave Harvey. Reading with my husband (already through chapter 3 so plan is to finish this).
  3. The God I Love ~ A Lifetime of Walking With Jesus by Joni Eareckson Tada. You know to add to the non-fiction list is a biography. I've always been fascinated by Joni. I hate to admit but I truly wonder what would I do if this had happened to me - I'm not sure how I would've gone on but it is wonderful what God has/is doing in her life!!
  4. Bleachers by John Grisham. Catching up on some fiction from a favorite author. I do like Law & Order though I haven't seen the show in a long long time.
  5. The Camel Club by David Baldacci. Another favorite author though some of his books are more explicit than others (that's a warning).
  6. These Strange Ashes: Is God Still in Charge? by Elisabeth Elliot. Loaned to me by a friend, I've never read any books by Elisabeth.
  7. Treasuring God in Our Traditions by Noel Piper and John Piper. Heard her speak on this topic and I would like to improve more in this area. We might buy her Advent calendar thing this Christmas.
  8. Ten Things I Wish Jesus Never Said by Victor Kuligin. My husband wants me to, enough said.

I'll probably add more fiction if I have time!! :)

Look for upcoming reviews as books are finished. TTFN.

Hello. Here I am diving in. I've been a lurker on a lot of blogs for a while, I finally decided to try blogging out for myself. Here we go!
