Company Girl Coffee

Grab a cup of coffee or a soda, and come on in! Last year, I was a regular participant in Home Sanctuary's Small Things, but the beginning of 2009 brought many changes and uncertainties in my life. Since school is out (half day Friday for teachers), I have started focusing on Rachel Anne's daily Small Things challenges. I am back in the swing of things, finally!

This week, we have tackled laundry, summer reading, picking up the floor, and cleaning up our computer desktops. All really easy tasks that when put together, help to create some peace and order in our lives. If you've never checked out Home Sanctuary, I hope you will. Whether you do the small things or not, there is wisdom to be had on Rachel Anne's blog.

My favorite thing this week by far was getting a start on summer reading. I have so many books to read! I recently finished The Other Boelyn Girl by Phillipa Gregory (which I highly recommend) and I read The Beach by Alex Garland in a matter of days. Next on my list is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, followed by The 8th Confession by James Patterson. Oh, there are so many more I want to read! You can check out my Goodreads page to see my to-be-read page. Also, you can check out the online book club I belong to, Readers Anonymous.

  1. Glad you back with us on the Small Things!!

    The book one was super easy because I'm a bookworm and plus I don't have anything else to do while I nurse my newborn baby.

    I'm trying out Goodreads and Shelfari, but don't know which one I like better.

    Happy reading!

  2. The last day of school. I don't think we ever lose that special feeling that comes with the close of school and the beginning of summer fun. I've got to pick up a few new books. Haven't been reading as much lately. Currently slogging through Angels and Demons. It doesn't really grab me. I may put it away and try something else.

  3. glad u have more leisure time Dianne!
    I love hearing book recommendations!
    have I already told u about little bee and 1000 white women? hope u add those to your summer reading list!

  4. You are going to Love Redeeming's one of Francine River's best! I too just olove reading and always have a stack on the go.....quilting or reading is usually my dilemma!

  5. Have you read any other Francine Rivers books? I really like Redeeming Love, but I LOVE< LOVE< LOVE her Mark of the Lion series.
