A few places to visit

I've already dropped Christopher off at class so I can have the Buick (the other car broke down last week, I'll tell you that story later!). Since I didn't have to rush home, I took the scenic route through farm lands and didn't even get upset when I got behind a farm vehicle going two miles an hour.

It gave me a great excuse to look at the scenery and the little signs that true Spring is near. We had snow on Sunday and snow is again in the forecast but it won't be long... my daffodils tell me that.

I now must drive behind my husband as he s.l.o.w.l.y drives the old car to the mechanic (we're getting an estimate to see if it is worth fixing again). Then we must stop by the health food store so he can get the old people's discount... I mean Senior Citizen's sale day. :)

In the meantime, I have three great links for you.

Cheryl has been talking books lately (curriculum as well as regular old wonderful books), click here to read her excellent post from today about books and reading... a subject near and dear to my heart.

That chapter from Doug William's book called "A Man's Library" can be found here. The last time I shared about it, I didn't have a mouse available to give you a link.

Last (but definitely not least), my dear Sally Clarkson has been writing about depression. No wonder I love her so much. She's Velveteen Rabbit real. Her kids are all pretty neat, too. Someday my girls, her girls, and the two Moms are going to have a tea party... if not here then There. I thought it very funny that Stephanie called Sarah to give her the courage to make her England reservations. You can find Sally's blog here.

Tomorrow I hope to write with my new laptop. Yipppeeeee... a gift from a very sweet lady. I'll tell you the story behind that, too. However, first my son has to get me on the wireless system here at home. The good thing about having a computer geek for a son... I have my own Geek Squad. The bad thing about this... he knows how to set the wireless security so high I don't understand it at all.

I also will share soon how God provided a much longed for piece of furniture... free. Yes, faith... patience... experience... hope. He provides. Now, if you haven't read the above links, you are in for a treat.

Well that was intriguing...I started with Sally's...excellent! Then I backed up to read Cheryl's and just realized that there's too much there to digest and must return to it.

Looking forward to reading more of your story. I'm thinking that we ought to pray in a new car for you...;>

We have a wireless modem. You can access it by it's IP address in an internet browser window - from there you can set passwords, etc. Just an FYI in case you want to ask your son how he is setting you up.

Going to check out those links in a bit. Can't wait to here how God provided.

Thanks for the links - timely stuff for yours truly. Had to laugh at your in-house Geek Squad line. As a fellow mother of a son who is a techo-guru, I salute you and Christopher! LOL Hugs, Sharon

I use a laptop and it is great...even with a dead battery!! I love moving it anywhere in my house. When I am cooking I use it for recipes in my kitchen. My hubby and I have our devotions together listening to an online Bible reading and we bring it in whatever room we desire. I bring mine with me when I visit my daughter and well...it is a blessing---plus I love having it in my lap--much easier on the wrists and eyes.

I'm so glad you're back in business with a laptop and camera. Can't wait to see your new furniture. Your tea set looks lovely, and I am always hungry when I leave your blog ;-)
