Did You Know?

Are you familiar with DearReader.com?

You sign-up to have a five-minute portion of a book emailed to you Monday--Friday and by the end of the week, you've read a couple chapters of the selected book. You can sign-up for whatever category of books you prefer and read from more than one book, even. (I currently receive the Good News selections.)

I've found some good books through DearReader and I recently chose to buy this one, a mystery...


...at Amazon.com because I simply must find out what happened at the end! :)

Just thought I'd pass along this info. for the readers amongst us.

****
Today I was so in the mood to visit this amazing beach house again. Thought you might want to, also..... Enjoy!

****
For, like, always I've dreamed of living beside a lake. Well, that dream has come true! See the lake outside our windows?





Cool, huh? Looked even nicer when it was surrounded by snow...When the snow returns(as it certainly will) I'll take another photo and share it with you.

Thanks for the tip...winter is the time to settle in with a good book, and not having to go out to get one is even better!

Sometimes geese or ducks will come down and settle on your "lake", even though it's only 6-8 inches or so deep. :-) And in the Spring, frogs and toads will sing you to sleep with their choruses.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for the link to finding book suggestions. I'd not heard of it, before.

Love your lake. It's awesome. And another example of how you can use your imagination, to "make things happen."

--You always want to live by a lake...
--A piece of land flooded, with all the rains/wetness...
--For you, it is the very lake you've wanted!

It would be so nice if more people could do this. Oh they can, I'm sure you'll say. And they _can_ use their imaginations, of course.

But...

Maybe...

Many forgot...

Forgot how to...

Long ago...

Lovely little lake. We haven't had any snow yet. It's suppose to be in the 60's here today. Nice but i'd like to have some snow.
Blessings

Thanks for your consistently great posts...and pix.

I'm using the picture on your blog header as my desktop background.

Are you flattered?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
