The Woolgrower's Companion, the book which the character Kate Dowd refers to in her work on her family's sheep farm in rural Australia, offers bits of advice and hints on how to manage your sheep. Although Kate has grown up...



Teaser Tuesday: Carney's House Party

2017-12-05T16:00:00-06:00

One of my first impressions of Maud Hart Lovelace's Carney's House Party, is my, those young women like to sing a lot. Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1911 must have been a fine place indeed. (I'm sure it...



'Tis the Season of Short Stories!

2017-12-04T21:30:52-06:00

Look what came in the mail today! Yes, 'tis the season once again for short stories. Last year I indulged in the Short Story Advent Calendar and enjoyed it so much I had to repeat the experience. I was a...



December Prompt: A Celebration

2017-12-01T09:00:00-06:00

Here we are, the last prompt of the year. Time for "A Celebration"! If I didn't manage to do anything else in regards to any reading goals I might have had, I have read all my monthly prompt selections (and...



End of Year Reading From List?

2017-11-30T11:00:00-06:00

I put a question mark above as I know my tendency to make lists and then do something else entirely. But I am always hopeful! This is my Thursday Thirteen so I have a nice variety of (mostly) in progress...



The End of Year To-Do List

I wish sometimes that I wasn't quite so tidy in my planning and reading and list making. But here we are with just over four weeks left in the year (and I have not given much thought about the holidays...



The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

2017-11-28T09:00:00-06:00

Weeks after finishing Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, two things remain firmly in my mind. Actually more than just the two, but in particular--the twenty miles that Junior would sometimes have to walk between his...



Weekend Museum Highlights

2017-11-27T08:00:00-06:00

Long weekends usually mean a visit to a museum or garden-somewhere nice and festive. A favorite place at this time of year is the Durham Museum, which is located in the historic Omaha Union Station. It was once a busy...



Teaser Tuesday: Custom of the Country

2017-11-21T15:44:06-06:00

Oh, Undine, Undine, Undine. I bet if you met me you would not like me at all. I would simply not rate. I have a feeling if I met you I might also not like you too much. But I...



Appointment with Death, Agatha Christie

2017-11-20T10:00:00-06:00

Agatha Christie is not called the "Queen of Crime" for nothing! I am always amazed that a mystery written in the 1930s can surprise me. I thought I had the murderer pegged and an ingenious twist all figured out. And...
