I was able to read four books this month. I am really enjoying my new morning ritual of reading while eating eating breakfast and lunch. My biggest problem has been at lunch time I tend to get lost in the book and forget to do my other responsibilities. Oops.
My rating system:
5 Stars = Amazing A book I could not put down nor could I stop talking about it. I recommend this book to everyone I know.
4 Stars = A wonderful book A book that I couldn't wait to read. I would rather read this book than watch TV. I would recommend this book to certain people depending on their reading habits.
3 Stars = A great book A book I enjoyed reading during my reading time. Generally I struggle to get into the book at the beginning but once I am half way through the book I can't wait to finish it. I may or may not recommend this book.
2 Stars = A good book A book I struggled to read but yet I wanted to know what happen next or wanted to know how it ended. I probably will not recommend this book to anyone.
1 Star = A book I did not enjoy This is a book I probably did not finish or if I did I wish I didn't waste my time reading.
I really struggled with this book. I know this was on the New York Times Best Seller List however I did not like all the unnecessary details in the story. If the author would have just stuck to developing the characters of the Plumb family I think the story would have been better. I would give this book 2 stars.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
This book was pretty interesting. I enjoyed the style that it was written in...letter form. It was easy to read a little bit and just right back in later. I really liked that the author stuck to the main characters and developed the story around them. It had a very interesting facts and information about an English island during WWII. I would give this book 3 stars.
This is a great book to read for just relaxing. It was a interesting story with a enough of a problem to keep me interested. I wanted to know how the characters solved and worked through their problems. I would give this book 3 stars.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
I enjoyed this book a lot. It was hard to put it down I felt that I wanted to know more throughout the whole book. Francie Nolan is the main character and the book spans throughout her life and explains the world and family around her. I thought is was very interesting. 4 stars

Really it was so delicious and easy to make. I am adding this to my back pocket dinners. Something I can make with no effort quickly. AND because it is all in one dish it is easy to clean. PERFECT!

At the beginning of summer I put together a Daily Affirmation book with lots of inspiring quotes and goals. My thought was to read it in the morning and it would help me set the tone for the day.
I think I read it four times....and then it eventually ended up in a basket and I never really look at it. So I decided to change it from a book to a board. I wanted to put it something place I know I will look at it often. So I decided the back of the bathroom door would be the best place. I can read it while I brush my teeth morning and night.

Recently I had to move some things around in my family room and I had a handful of white vases and pitchers leftover. At first they were headed to the Goodwill pile, but then I thought of this empty cart in the guest bedroom.
My first thought for this cart was books....but then I remembered the extra white vases.
I really like this look. It looks clean and fresh. I am always changing or modifying something daily. However my goal is always the same...simple, clean and fresh.

It was a bit raining this week and that made me think a lot of umbrellas and so that was the inspiration of my day dream today.
There is nothing more adorable than children with red umbrellas. I love watching the children come to school on rainy days with their character umbrellas. It is so cute. I already bought my grand daughter a ladybug umbrella for when she goes to school. I cannot wait to see a picture of her carrying her umbrella.
This was the first time I saw this photograph. Someone biking with a red umbrella. It is awesome. I really wish I had somewhere to hang up this print. I really LOVE it.
I LOVE these winter photos as well especially the one on the right is amazing because you can see the frozen ice on the trees.
