I Am Back

It has been a rough month so that is why you have not seen me for awhile. The first part of the month I had bad vertigo for four days. I did manage to post once after that but then things got worse! Jack's arthritis had him on the walker even as I was trying to recover from that vertigo. Oh but that was not the end of it! Oh no!!!! The alternator went out on the truck stranding us in another town. We got a jump and made it home but could not afford to fix it and found more issues with the truck so not worth fixing. Then Jack contacted this delightful, Christian, caring man. He goes by Mr. O.  Also pray for Mr. O as he has liver cancer.
This wonderful man got us financed for a wonderfully cared for 2007 Toyota Camry, took 1,000 dollars off the price and gave us 500 dollar trade in for the truck even though it was not running and had it towed in. Here is the car we now have. Never had we had one so nice!

I think Jack likes it!
There has not been a lot of crocheting going on with everything else happening but I have played with cables a bit in crochet.

And have since finished up this shawl for a friend.
I also have orders for several angels and snowflakes, santa ornaments and gingerbread men ornaments. And may have a couple or more afghan orders. So I shall be busy but we need the funds for sales tax. So now on to our silly, sweet Sylvia.

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

One Of The Few~Jaon B. Ladd Book Review

I was approached by the author to read and review his book. I do not read a lot of books other than the Bible. However, I do enjoy reading a book about people searching for the Lord and their journeys. I found the book interesting and a good read. It covers many aspects of the author's life, military career, father and husband. He speaks about the secular worlds influence and other things in this world affecting a Christian walk. Also he speaks of the need for a "coherent worldview", how it affects our lives and how we can effectively share our believe with others. I would recommend this book!
