It rained as if the world was going to flood last evening. I'm afraid for the people whose basements are prone to taking on water.
If you have an 'Amazon Echo Dot'... Amazon gives a free Audible book each month. Just say, 'Alexa, whats free from Audible?' Trouble is, those free books are not usually to my taste. Once in a while a title comes along thats more to my liking. But, free is worth checking out. ~~ What a rainy day, just right for reading and napping. (My PK meds make me sleepy...to much of the time)
Psalm 16:1 'Preserve me , O God; for in thee do I put my trust.'

How interesting to see my picture there on the wall behind the piano. Notice anything in particular? The carefully glued puzzle pieces show up clear as can be. I put this puzzle together some years ago and so loved this picture. I hunted high and low for a print of it to no avail. So....I glued it together and framed it and am still enjoying it. Usually the puzzle pieces do not show up unless you get close to it. Now, this is a 'good time' still making me happy. O my soul, skip to the good times and be ye thankful.

I enjoy Mary Janes Farm magazine and Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Journal ( I keep forgetting to check out her blog) and my issues of Spin-Off. Oh yes, and Ree's new 'The Pioneer Woman'...very lovely! I wonder what magazine is one of your favorites.
The thing is, beautiful magazines full of beautiful dreamy thoughts and pictures are So hard to get rid of, after a few months go by and they start piling up!
I have a pile of books and magazines for the Good Will, (whose prices are always too high anymore, in my opinion). Actually, hubby prefers to donate to Christian Laymen....whose prices are delightfully realistic. If I remember right, a blouse is only $2. and paperback books are 0nly 50 cents. I should know, I've brought home some of each. More than a few times!

I am knitting on a wrap that I started some years back. It is almost done though. The special thing about it is that I spun the wool myself. It was one of my first projects and a wonderfully nice lady gave me a huge amount of wool from her sheep almost free. I can't tell you how I appreciated the wool and her kindness to me. Everything was new to me then....in the world of spinning wheels and wool...and scarce, until our paths crossed. What a blessing we can be to others, as she was to me.
John 14:1 'Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.'
Oh I almost forgot to tell you that I was able to download book #15 from the #1 Ladies Detective Agency, from our free online library service! It waits for me on my Kindle and when the borrowing time is up....they just erase it from the Kindle. Isn't that just terrific? I'm loving it!

I've spent time this morning selecting my Audible book of the month. I chose 'The Cat Who Wasn't There' by Lillian Jackson Braun. Quilleran goes on vacation to Scotland....oh boy, I think it will be a good listen!
And...over on my library ebook site, I am going to try listening to 'Calico Joe' by John Grisham. It is read by Eric Singer and I really liked his voice. You'd better like the reader's voice when an audio book can go from 2 hours to maybe 8 hours, but it passes the time enjoyably and frees me up to knit or clean.
Psalms100:2 'Serve the LORD with gladness; come before his presence with singing.'

So I bought it and have been enjoying it very much. I have my spinning wheel out now and am back to spinning and doing some knitting which is so nice. and....I am listening to the audio book 'Claudia' and enjoying it.
