Before I Turn Fiftylabibliotecaria

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 22:26:35 +0000

I turned 49 today.  Not a bad day at all, and I’m totally not bothered by my age.  I’m alive.  I’m in good health.  I have a job that I was born to do, a great husband, a wonderful family, dear friends far and near, a slightly messy house, and 3 perfect cats.  When people […]

Book review: Grace Filled Marriagelabibliotecaria

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 04:56:14 +0000

Early this year (but not early enough for it to count as a resolution or anything), I decided that 2013 would be my year of grace.  I decided to purposely extend grace to others, regardless of whether I knew them, or whether we had had a bad relationship or encounter in the past, or even […]

Jen Hatmaker convinces her family and her closest friends to “pare down to what is necessary, what is noble.”  She undertook 7 months of fasting, with one fast per month. Here was her order of fasting (and, incidentally, the order of the chapters): Food Clothes Possessions Media Waste Spending Stress She has small children, so […]

Book review: Lace one-skein wonderslabibliotecaria

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 05:07:26 +0000

Judith Durant has written an awesome book for the intermediate knitter who wants to learn lace or bust some stash. The projects start simply, with lace embellishments to simple hats, and increase in difficulty to include yummy lacy fingerless gloves.  I must confess a strong partiality to both the Trellis Mitts and the Travel-worthy Mitts.

Book review: Handmade books for everyday adventureslabibliotecaria

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 04:09:17 +0000

I have to say, I love this little book by Erin Zamrzia.  It is engaging and beautifully photographed.  She writes as one who knows each reader personally.  The illustrations and directions are easy to follow, and the project ideas are terrific.   I definitely plan to make at least one book necklace, and who doesn’t […]

Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV) 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” No matter what happens.  No matter what.

Rarely does a book live up to its title, but this one does. Everything from soil preparation from canning and freezing. Includes waste management and heating and cooling and how to set up a workshop that is durable but inexpensive. It even has recipes for chicken mash! Lots of illustrations and very clear instructions. The […]

I’ve checked this book out half a dozen times, even lost it once and had to pay for it.  And I still haven’t got my refund!   Make your place: affordable, sustainable nesting skills has a wheelbarrow-load of great recipes for non-toxic household cleaners that generally smell nice.  It also has good advice for starting […]

Books I need to return to the library – The compassionate carnivorelabibliotecariacompassionate carnivore

Whatever. Okay. I get it. Factory-farmed meat is bad for the environment and for our health. It is also unkind to animals and bad for small farmers.  Hey! – that is something I can buy into – I like the idea of saving small farm.  But don’t the small farmers sell beef and milk and […]

Books I want to own – Starter vegetable gardens: 24 no-fail plans for small organic gardenslabibliotecariastarter vegetable gardens

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 03:18:24 +0000

by Barbara Pleasant, co-author of The complete compost gardening guide (yes, another book  I want). I love this book! It has shopping lists for every year.  It has labeled (as opposed to keyed) diagrams.  It has plans for long hot summers and short cool summers.  Living in Florida, I might need the former more than […]
