Thornville Backwoods Fest 2010

I went on Friday to the Thornville Backwoods Fest and had so much fun looking at the arts and crafts and smelling the great BBQ that was wafting in the air. Due to some vendors not wanting to be filmed or me even taking photos of their crafts for fear that I'd copy them I was only able to get a view minutes of video (you can watch some of the goodies that people have bought as they walk out) but at the end you can see the Awesome Americana Wreath the I bought and promptly hung up in my kitchen and the 3 stars that have Cinnamon/Apple pottpurie? that will hang in my kitchen windows. Isn't that Flag Wreath the Best?

The Secret of Indigo Moon- The Dopple Ganger Chronicles~~ A Book Review

List Price:
Trim Size:
6 x 9 
September 2009 

From best-selling author G.P. Taylor comes the highly anticipated second installment of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, a series that combines art and traditional text to help “reluctant readers” discover the wonder of books.
Erik Morissey Ganger, famed explorer and detective (well, in his dreams), and his mischief-making sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple, didn’t go looking for a secret tunnel beneath the school. They never intended to make the acquaintance of a shifty private eye with a nose for trouble. It wasn’t part of the plan to come face to face with an old enemy, one with an agenda of his own that could destroy them all. And unraveling the “secret of indigo moon” was the farthest thing from their minds.
 At Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children, these things just seem to happen.
In The Secret of Indigo Moon, confirmed troublemakers Erik, Sadie, and Saskia plunge headlong into a new and perilous mystery, one that challenges everything they thought they knew about their lives, themselves, and whom it’s safe to trust.
I read a few chapters of this book and my fav. section was the comics that take part as a chapter in the book, I passed it on to my 11 yr old daughter to read and she liked  how the comics made reading the book fun! She is a slow reader but I'm happy she stuck to it. Now she wants to read the other books by G.P.Taylor, which is a great thing as she rarely finds a book that she likes that does not evolve around horses!! This was a fun mystery and she found it not scary, perfect for her!

Faithful~ A Book Review

Three life-long friends experience life-altering struggles. Will they find the strength to be faithful to the covenants they've made with God...and each other?
Cydney Sanders thought she knew God’s plan for her life. She’d marry, have kids, and then snap her body back into shape with Tae Bo. But she’s celebrating her fortieth birthday as the maid of honor at her little sister's wedding . . . and still single. Why would God give her this desire to marry, but no husband? And why is her life suddenly complicated by the best man—who’s the opposite of what she wants in a husband?
Cydney's best friend Dana has the perfect marriage. But when Dana discovers her husband’s affair, her world goes into a tailspin. And Phyllis is out of hope after six years of unanswered prayers for her husband to find faith. When she runs into an old friend who is the Christian man she longs for, she's faced with an overwhelming choice.
With life falling apart around them, can they trust God like never before?

I finished this book but it really didn't sit well with me. I am more of a Happy Ending/Light Hearted/No Worries type of girl and this was too....just too..ughg  I'm not sure but the affair didn't sit well with me and then it was "fixed" to fast for me. The ending was better in regards to the other couple in this book but when you start a book with an affair in the first couple of chapters, in my opinion Not a good thing.

2 Gooseberry Patch Goodies

On Tues. I was alone as all 3 kids were in school so I ran with my Mom to Cracker Barrel for lunch and afterwards we went to browse Kindred Spirits Crafts Mall in Pickerington. While in Cracker Barrel I was able to grab these 2 new goodies....
and did you know that Yankee Candle has come out with hand sanitizer? Where have I been?? I grabbed the yummy Apple one to keep in my car for fast clean-ups.

I also grabbed this very cute note pad for my purse, it has our last initial on it and is so pretty sparkly with blue stones and gold swirls...

Gosh, the flash just about blinds ya...Sorry 

So that what I've been up to, Tuesday I got out of the house for a bit and the rest of the week I've been in and catching up on Netflicks, I was able to watch "It's Complicated" which was a great movie and then some odd Horror movies that I can't watch while the kids are home. Oh and laundry :)

Hope ya'll have a great Holiday weekend!!
