What I Read in February

What I Read in February

I managed to read eight books in February, so still above my goal. Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly Once again, Harry Bosch is too damn decent for words. He’s been more or less kicked out of the LAPD so he’s working cold cases in another jurisdiction...
What I Read in January

What I Read in January

Twelve Books! This is five books over my new monthly foal and almost a record. A trip to the used book store, a sudden desire to re-read a favorite childhood series, and extra time available due to the holidays made this feat possible. The Fifth Witness by Michael...
Ten Great Reads from 2023

Ten Great Reads from 2023

In both 2022 and 2021 when I started these monthly book posts, I read 76 books. In 2023, I read 103! I have a feeling I neglected other areas of my life to read that much. I had set a reading goal of six books per month. Although I missed that goal two times, I...

12 in 2023: A Year in Pictures

Welcome to my yearly roundup of my favorite/best/most meaningful photos from the year gone by, something I’ve been doing for over ten years now.  I’ll explain my rationale for choosing each photo as we go. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed...

What I Read in December

Eight books this month–not bad with Christmas in the mix! I finished my Patricia Cornwell re-read when I received her latest for Christmas and I will recap those below. She has another book due out in October but I will content myself with maybe re-reading just...

What I Read in November

What I Read in November

I read 11 books this month but I was rather single-minded in my choices so this will be a short review! As I did last time I will sum up some thought on the TEN Patricia Cornwell books I re-read after I list them all. Predator by Patricia Cornwell Book of the Dead by...
What Dreams May Come

What Dreams May Come

Modern dream interpretation is based on psychology and our understanding of the unconscious mind. If I were going to take a shot at interpreting Nebuchadnezzar’s dream as Daniel does in today’s first reading, I would suggest that he fears the loss of his power, that...
What I Read in October

What I Read in October

FIFTEEN BOOKS! Now that indeed is a record and demands an explanation. I learned last month that Patricia Cornwell would be releasing a new book in November. So I thought it would be fun to re-read all her books in order. Yes, I own them (many soot-stained) and yes...
Spirit-Led Sabbath

Spirit-Led Sabbath

When I was a little girl I read all the Little House on the Prairie books over and over. I remember being deeply impressed by the rules for Sabbath behavior back in those days. Not only was nonessential work forbidden, any sort of fun was too. Children who resisted...
