Market Bags

It's that time of year again! The Farmer's Markets are BACK!

I was unaware that the Market in Canon was open last weekend but I'm planning to make up for that this weekend! I have plans for a new hand woven rug from the local lady for my bathroom. Her husband sorts the strips of jersey for her to make into these thick, plush rugs. My mom got me a pink and purple one last summer for my birthday and I love it!

So since the market is back, I thought I should have some new bags on hand. Plus, I finally sold my stash from last year!

I think the one with the mixer, bowls and eggs is my favorite!

I also have a yard of the brown burlap left, I think it's time I visit my favorite fab-rick shop! :)

Of course, all my bags are listed here!

Preserving A Memory

Tonight, Jacob pulled two spoons from the drawer and marched around the kitchen, singing "Marchin' marchin!"

It's little things like that I am afraid of forgetting. How can I remember all the funny, adorable, silly, and creative things he does? What will stand out the most when he's 4, 18, 35?

What's In My Kindle

I've been shamelessly searching for good book recommendations and I thought I might return the favor. Also, note that I am a TERRIBLE spender when it comes to Kindle books. I do not like paying over $5 for an e-book. So if it's over that, it better be good!

Game of Thrones

I just got this yesterday. I saw that Deb from Smitten Kitchen mentioned it and I decided to try the "preview" first and knew 30% in that I was going to buy it. Luckily it's only $8.99! But there are FIVE of them...


I bought this the day I got my Kindle and I could not stop reading it. Such a great read. Thrilling and sad and intense.

Sookie Stackhouse (1-11)
I am glad I waited a while before reading these, because waiting between books is not my favorite thing to do. I did it for Harry Potter, and I don't like it. These are great, I love Sookie! A million times better than Twilight and quick reads. I love Bill, not so much Eric.

Little Bee
This story hurts my heart. I know it's fiction but I sense that it's based in a truth no one wants to face. Read it and then be outraged with me?

Cutting for Stone

I admit that I was a little bored with this story at the beginning and I'm so glad I stuck it out. I can't give anything away though. It is heavy on medical terms, but since I listen to Chris talk about that stuff, I can just plow right through. ;)

What are you reading? It is less that $5 on a Kindle?
