Books!

Here are a few books I am currently reading that you too may find interesting...

Can You Trust A Tomato In January? This has all sorts of interesting tidbits about our food supply, from when the grocery stores took off and how to surprising info about the things that happen to our food before it hits the table here at home.

It really can't be a bad thing to be ready for a unexpected things to happen, power outages, natural disasters, that sort of thing.
So, when I saw this book at the library, I picked it up and have been studying the pages since. It's a new one, just out this past summer.

I find her ideas helpful and have found a good place to start. Living here in earthquake country, I'm especially interested in the section on evacuation. If we had to leave our house in five minutes would I have any idea of what to take? This book has helped me with some insight on what could be important in this type of situation.

I picked this little treasure up at a homeschool support group last night... it was on the "blessing" table, where others leave things they are finished with and anyone else can pick things up that they are interested in. It was fun to shop for free!
This little book has some sweet things to do, recipes, and just an overall positive way of looking at things. It's categorized by seasons, so I naturally have been reading in the fall section and finding all sorts of fun ideas.

I almost read that disaster book and I'm just not sure I want to know about the groceries. I'm really glad to see that you're blogging, though. I just knew you were amazing, and since we both have huge families, I never figured I'd get to know you very well, this is fantastic. I have kids in all stages of nudity, too- I thought that was funny. Also, I am dying to know how you store all the clothes, because what I'm doping isn't working. The Duggars have a "clothes room" that looks like a department store. It sounds smart, I just don't happen to have an extra room lying around. But you... Do spill the secret, please
