Happy Monday! I've been a busy little bee this morning. So far I've washed (and put away!) 3 loads of laundry, swept the house, tidied all of my "hotspots", dusted my bedroom, and finished today's school lessons. Whew! This afternoon I'm going to reward myself by curling up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. I'm almost finished reading Papa's Wife by Thyra Ferre Bjorn. This is the first book in the trilogy, and it has been easy, light-hearted reading. If you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables, The Sound of Music, or Jan Karon's books, you'll enjoy Papa's Wife. The weather here today is still on the chilly side, but it should be warming up in the next few days. I told the children that maybe it will be warm enough to set up the hammock later in the week. :) I'm looking forward to warmer sunshine-filled days!

I LOVE the Jan Karon books. I also love stories that do not end with one book. I fall in love with the characters and then I have to say goodbye. I have read the Mitford series 3 times in the last 8 years. Such rich writing. I am going to look for Papa's Wife. Thanks for the recommendation.

I enjoyed Jan Karon's writing style, too. Her characters seem like old friends. Hope you enjoy meeting some new ones. :)

Hot Chocolate sounds great right now. I try to have a cup before we go out on bus visitation. It warms you up when you're walking in the cold!! LOL

I'm looking forward to some warmer days too. I would have liked to have had some really COLD days to kill some of the cold germs around here, but oh well....maybe next year.

A hammock would be fun.

I've never read any of Jan Karon's books either.....are they good?

Kristi,
I am a huge fan of chocolate in any form, so cold weather is a wonderful excuse to indulge. :)

Mrs. B.,
I've read all of the Mitford books and a Christmas book by Jan Karon. The Mitford series is fictional and centered around a bachelor Episcopal(?) rector in the quaint community of Mitford. I found them interesting because I'm not very familiar with this denomination and the "works" associated with it. There are nine books in the series. The books are light-hearted and very pleasant to read. I've never heard anyone who's read them say that they didn't enjoy them. I would definitely check them out at the library. You can also go to mitfordbooks*dot*com and see all of the other books written by Karon. There is a children's series based on the cat from the Mitford books. :)

Mrs. C,

I've not heard of Jan Karon. My daughter loves to read Beverly Lewis and Lori Wick books. She has almost a library of books that she has read and has so many more that she wants to read.

I know what you mean of the cold days and longing for the warmer days. Today was beautiful although rain is moving in. I think its going to be warm the rest of the week though. I'm ready too!!

Sis. Julie,
I've read all of Lori Wick's books, and Beverly Lewis's latest is waiting for me at the library.

I enjoy reading books set in the "olden days" or those written many years ago to more contemporary works.

I think the weather will be nice tomorrow! :)
