Be Back Soon!

Ok, It's been awhile since I made a sincere effort at blogging, but I do have 3 good excuses and 1 pitiful one. The pitiful excuse is the extremely habit forming game I've been playing. ( And yes I'm still stuck on 26)

Two of my good excuses are new bookie books!
The first is one I picked up at Hudson's in
Hattiesburg the past weekend. It's about
something that I had no idea about....
black slaveowners. It's The Known World
by Edward P. Jones and it's a veeerrrrrrryyy
interesting and heartbreaking read.

The second book is one I received from Compassion International. I have yet to really dive into it. I'm skeered. I know it's going to break my heart, so I'm easing my way into it by looking at the pictures, skimming a paragraph here and then. It's called Hope Lives: A Journey of Restoration by Amber Van Schooneveld. It's about poverty. I can't tell you anymore because like I said, I'm skeered.

And listen now, as far as books go, I'm just getting started! There's a new Miss Julia book out there I've yet to get my hands on, not to mention Death, Deceit and Some Smooth Jazz. (I have not purchased these two books yet for one simple reason. I AM HOPING TO RECEIVE THEM (or one) FOR MOTHER'S DAY!!!!! )Plus, I think my groovy book buddy has another Lisa Samson book for me, and I believe that Dean Koontz has a new one coming out. Not the dog one. A newer one. I think. Ok, don't quote me on that last one. Sooooooo, as you can well see, I have not yet begun to read!

Back to my excuses,, reasons for not blogging much...

My 3rd good excuse is the lapbook I'm working on for Sunday School class. It's half done...maybe...ok, more like 1/3 done. And Sunday is just around the corner ya'll, so I'm off. Time to say prayers, tuck the little boogers in and get cracking!
