“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
New Books to Read:
Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood I have always enjoyed children’s literature. Glory Be is about 1964 Mississippi and segregation.
The Inklings by Harry Lee Pope It’s in at the library! I’ll be picking it up and digging in soon.
I will be having a give-away on February 14. To be automatically entered, just sign-up for Beauty Observed’s monthly newsletter by entering your email in the sign up box here. The winner will be picked on Valentine’s Day.
As an adoptive mom, I was deeply touched by this post, Dear Moms of Adopted Children. Even if you’ve not adopted, it’s worth reading.
I have two 13 year-olds who are huge Blimey Cow fans. This week’s video was Seven Ways to Beat Writer’s Block. I thought it was cute.
What we are eating next week:
- Saturday Homemade chicken noodle soup.
- Sunday Cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes. They asked for them again!!!

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
