More and More This & That

Good Morning, everyone, grap a cup of coffee or some of this wonderful stuff - although you will notice that is is Sugar Free and Decaff (not the first thing I have in the morning.....but later on in the day it's a nice treat!!!)
In all our moving and re-arranging, I had to move some books, so thought I would share some of my favorites with you.....
these are some herbs books - haven't read much in them - but I really want to learn more about herbs and how to use them...in cooking and home remedies....

I don't know why my pictures are turning out so fuzzy - they look good on flickr!!!

...these are some "homey" books - I love books like this...always looking for a new way to do things....

some of my very favorites...The Country Store has all kind of recipes for bath salts, shampoos, soaps, etc.....and then a book JUST on homemade soaps - I really want to learn to do that one day...on my bucket list!!!!!
...sewing books - my machine has sooooo much dust on it - hasn't been out in a while...another project!!!!!!
...gardening books - can you tell where I live??!!.....
...more gardening books - and no, I don't have a garden this year...I need more hours in my day!!!!
...speaking of which - I love Emilie Barnes...she tries to help me!!!!!

...I haven't gotten to read this one very much yet...it is my newest one and it's about 2 years old - have scanned it and it looks good - will spend some more time with it....

My precious son-in-law, Landon, here with Brandi on their wedding day, 2 1/2 years ago -
...sprained his ankle really, really bad - doesn't that look horrible.....
...but they doctor said it is not broken...would that look even worse???!!!!!!!

...hate to leave you on that note - this weekend will be busy with my BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!! YIPEE!!!!! ....do I will be back on Monday and I have tons of pictures of my dear friend, Judy's house - it is so gorgeous!!! It will take me all week to get them all on here
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!!!!!!!
Donna

I definitely want to pick-up those books. I try to have a little herb garden at my place, and would love to know more about it - including how to use them medicinally. Thanks for sharing!

Hope you have a WONDERFUL time at your birthday party.

Love all your books. I want to learn to make bath soap. That would be cool...

Landon's ankle looks WAY PAINFUL! and Brandi is absolutely, positively GORGEOUS! I mean WOW! Thank goodness I'm too old to feel envious and/or jealous of such a young whipper-snapper (she repeated over and over to herself)....lol

Now don't forget to have someone manning the camera this weekend so you'll have lots of pictures to post.

Have fun!!
