Popsugar 2017 Reading Challenge

A book recommended by a librarian:The Phantom Tollbooth (Norton Juster) This was given to me ages ago by a mate who lives in America. It took me way too long to read it, however it was right up my alley. English jokes, puns and a huge dog. A book that's been on your TBR list... Continue Reading →


What I Learned From Reading The Entire Bible

I was challenged to read the entire Bible last year. It sort of got away from me, and I was disappointed at the end of the year that I hadn't managed to keep my mind focused enough. However, this year from the first Monday to today [because I'll be busy tomorrow and I didn't want... Continue Reading →

On an early morning talk show yesterday, two guests were presented with the chaos currently surrounding the... Continue Reading →


Today, I was almost reduced to tears [it really doesn't take much. My record is a dog food commercial] because I tried to be an adult and it didn't work.  There was a lost dog wandering around our compound which followed me home while I was walking my neighbour's dog, so I decided to do...

Trusting God

However, one... Continue Reading →
