Library Haul – December Edition

I went to the library the other day and returned my books, then, of course, I cruised the aisles in search of something juicy to read. I love grabbing non-fiction and fiction while I’m at the library. How-to books, cookbooks, and so forth… I like having one book that I’m reading for pleasure and thenContinue reading “Library Haul – December Edition”

Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom

I checked out a copy of this book. I always love taking at least one cookbook among my library conquests. This one will definitely be one of the books I need to hunt down from the local used book store. I think I recall McKay’s actually having one in stock, but we don’t have theContinue reading “Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom”

Tell Me Something About Buddhism

Found another gem at the library! It’s almost time for it to be returned so I thought I’d take some photographs of the artwork and give a bit of a review. I really liked this one. It’s short, simple, and to the point. The name pretty much summed it up. Questions and Answers for theContinue reading “Tell Me Something About Buddhism”

Joy for Beginners by Erica Bauermeister

Quoted from GoodReads: “At an intimate, festive dinner party in Seattle, six women gather to celebrate their friend Kate’s recovery from cancer. Wineglass in hand, Kate strikes a bargain with them. To celebrate her new lease on life, she’ll do the one thing that’s always terrified her: white-water rafting down the Grand Canyon. But ifContinue reading “Joy for Beginners by Erica Bauermeister”

The Borrowers

The 2010 Studio Ghibli movie, “The Secret World of Arrietty”, is probably the most modern version of the Borrowers that I know. My step daughter was home sick from school and this was the movie she ended up picking to start her sick day. I sat with her a bit and watched because I reallyContinue reading “The Borrowers”

The Art of Simple Living: Part One

Okay, the first part of the book is really interesting. It makes sense because Zen is one of the building blocks to the foundation of DBT skills. The book is nice since it really only has about a page of text about each of these points. It’s not really something I’ll expand upon to muchContinue reading “The Art of Simple Living: Part One”

Library Haul

One of the books I opened from the library had a green “4” UNO card tucked in it. Is this a sign? Not sure why the Naga section of the book was bookmarked. I’ll have to ponder and think up some strange story behind all of that. I had to return some of my booksContinue reading “Library Haul”

The Neverending Story

This was one of my favorite movies as a child. It was made the year I was born! So I suppose it’s like my theme movie. Imagination! Dreams! The Nothing… Oh man, the Nothing is a real struggle for me. And BOOKS! Wow, I love books. When my ex-husband and I separated, I ended upContinue reading “The Neverending Story”
