Hi friends...

Our sweet little town was hit by a tornado this past Saturday night. Our old historic street suffered significant damage. We scraped by with only moderate damage. When our back windows were blown out both my husband and I looked at each other with a look of sheer fright. I was seriously fearful for our lives. We are very blessed and thankful!! We are probably going to be without power for the next 2-3 weeks or so. The girls have adjusted to this new normal...as are we. I will post pictures as soon as we do have power. Please pray for our sweet little town!

Easter Continued

Easter was much fun at the Douglas household. We hunted eggs for over a week. My aunt did these precious bunny t-shirts and buckets for the girls. How cute are they! Thanks Aunt Meri Lyn!


The dyeing of the eggs begins....(in old clothes---I've learned from experience)!





My little sister with the girls Easter morning before church. Abbey has lived with us for a year and we love, love, love her being here.




Easter Sunday afternoon again with the hunting of the eggs.

Because I'm easily amused

I love to read. It is my escape. I normally read mystery/thriller type books. I've recently tried to step outside the box and read different genres. I just finished the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. These had a little bit of time travel (way outside my normal genre). I devoured these books. I couldn't wait to borrow the next one...and then the next one...and then the next one (there are 7). I practically harassed my friend that loaned me the books.

But now....I'm finished. Ugh!

I've been at a loss as what to read next. I found a cool little tool a few years ago that sometimes helps me find new authors with books in similar genres.

It is called LITERATURE-MAP.

Go there and type in your favorite author (for example John Grisham). A map will come up and have John Grisham in the middle and dozens of authors listed around. The names closest to Grisham write the most like him and are most similar in genre.

What a useful little tool this has been for me. I'm off to use it to find my next adventure!
