I read "The Shack" a week ago and loved it! I have heard controversial reviews on it. I am Christian, but I like fiction books and like different views. There is only one way to find out if there really is a God or Jesus etc, and that is to die. I think I'd like to wait awhile to find out myself.
I know a few people that have had horrendous childhoods and they say how can there be a God if He lets things like this happen? Well this book explains a few things. I really don't want to say alot about the book, because it will ruin it for you if you want to read it.
I suggest reading it, then we can have a book review.
I'd really like to hear from others what they think of it.

I sat in my recliner crocheting today and Cinderella crawled up on my pile of yarn projects and nuzzled in and fell asleep. Later I fell asleep. I woke up and she had crawled up on my chest, and Punkin was on my lap and Elliott was on my legs. I was cozy and warm.
It is rainy and breezy and cold. The flannel sheets are on my bed and I am finishing my laundry. Time to shower and get ready for bed.
Have a great week!

Well this is normal for around here at this time of year. Foggy and dreary skies but in the midst of grey there can be a thing of beauty. A great Blue Heron sitting on a snag from floods of the Skagit River that empties into the Cove here. I love my Island!
Enjoy the weekend!

Cats don't care how much money you spend on them at all. They are satisfied with the bag you brought it home in. Just empty the bag, throw it on the floor and you will be entertained for hours!
Punkin, on the other hand, will have nothing to do with such silliness! She has never played like a kitten, she just sits on your lap or sleeps on your bed. She rules the food dish though.
Elliott and Cinderella are the characters in this house.
The luncheon went well. 111 gals showed yup. I got there at 10:30 to set up and there was a line already! It was supposed to start at 11:30. Gals from all over the State attended. Our speaker has 50 years sobriety, and is 88 years old.
I can rest now for another 10 months. Ahhhhh.
I will be going to Olympia again on Tuesday and returning Wednesday night.
Y'all have a marvelous week!

This is common here. The sunny days have a hint of Fall dropping in on us. The trees are on the cliff by Ebey's Landing by Puget Sound. The water is frigid and the sun hits it and therefore the fog.
I will be BUSY this weekend. The yearly Island A.A. Women's Luncheon is Saturday and I have 120 gals signed up to come. I need to be there early and ensure everyone has paid and has a name tag. It will be fun with all them hungry alkie gals. Whew!
Y'all have a great weekend!
