Spiritual Practices: Liturgical Library

This week for our Spiritual Practices class, we were encouraged to make a library of spiritual or sacred texts. I wandered the house for hours, picking up books here and there, and piling them all up next to my bed. Nick and I had a long conversation about what we each thought should go in … Continue reading Spiritual Practices: Liturgical Library

Book Making Weekend

One of my best friends and I made books this weekend. She took a four-day workshop on it and graciously offered to have me down for the weekend and teach me her new skills. I forgot to take a picture of the book press, which is large, red, and dusty from having sat in someone's … Continue reading Book Making Weekend

I promise I do other things than read!

No really, I do.  And I will update about them tomorrow, once I've offloaded photos and videos and put away the dishes and laundry from the weekend. 23. Embers by Laura Bickle was one that I liked pretty well.  It was interesting to hear about the character's past and the way her magic works.  I … Continue reading I promise I do other things than read!

books, books, books!

19. Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch 20.  Moon over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch My husband stole these out of my giant-pile-o-Steph's-books and devoured them first.  Then he kept leaving them out places and asking if I'd read them yet.  I took this as a hint that he wanted me to read them so we could … Continue reading books, books, books!

Books, 2012, one more

17.  Rude Mechanicals by Kage Baker Yes, I'm on a Kage Baker kick again.  Somehow there's always more of them, which is amazing and wonderful and sad because one day there won't be more that I haven't seen yet.  This one was one of the delightful shorter length books focusing on Joseph and Lewis.  I … Continue reading Books, 2012, one more

Books 2012, continued

12. Reread The Hunger Games in time to see the movie. 13. Finally read Goliath by Scott Westerfeld, after putting it off forever because I was scared I'd drop a cup of tea in it like I did to Behemoth. 14. Finally finished Wings by Aprilynne Pike, which I can't remember where I got it … Continue reading Books 2012, continued

Again, not dead

No, I'm not. Really, I promise. I got an iPhone, rarely go near the computer any more, and so blogging has fallen by the wayside, as I'm not entirely proficient with the thumbs-typing-on-small-keyboards thing yet (though I am trying. This for example). So, what've we been up to lately? Lots of stuff, mostly kids, school, … Continue reading Again, not dead

RA Guy’s Book Club: “How To Be Sick”

Book 4 of 2012: In case you haven't seen it, there's a discussion over at RA Guy’s Book Club on the book: “How To Be Sick” by Toni Bernhard. Through the magic of Kindle I went from the panic of ACK!  I need to go to the bookstore!  to  AHHHH.... book in hand.  I do so … Continue reading RA Guy’s Book Club: “How To Be Sick”
