Just So You Know...

Hi y'all!
 Just so you know, I'm going to be away from the computer for a few days. I've had some wonderful comments over the last week or so, but I haven't been able to respond to everyone.
 I expect to be back to blogging next week sometime. I should finish my third knitting project by then.  I'll swipe my husband's phone and take a photo. Enough for now, just wanted to let you know what's up.

 I hope you have a wonderful week ending!

Getting a little extra R & R,
knitting, and reading time!

Little Hats for Little Heads 2018


  Last year I did a lot of charity knitting. I made hats for the cancer center, for Samaritan's Purse Christmas Shoeboxes, and the infant clothing ministry where my step-mom Annie volunteers. Here are a few of the hats that I made in November and December this year. I wrapped these up as a gift to Annie.

I'll show you what I've done since the first of the year later this week.
God bless you all!

What's on your needles?

Harvest Lane Cottage Winter Reading List ~ 2019

Good new year to you! I don't have any resolutions, but I am making some lists to help me focus. I find my bucket lists really help me do some things I want to do but may not make time for each season. Having it all here in front of y'all makes me feel like I have a wee bit of accountability.

Do I have time to sit around and read all the time? Absolutely not! Do I read more when I use snatched moments when I'm waiting for this or that? Absolutely! Use your moments even if you wish for hours.

Karen Andreola's new book, Mother Culture, is now available! I've received my copy and cannot wait to set aside a bit of time to begin reading it. I love Karen's books. Even if you don't homeschool, I have a feeling you will find suggestions that will make afternoons, evenings, and weekends more meaningful for you and your family. My children are all grown. My youngest is 17, but I look forward to reading this for what it can mean for me and my culture!

On Reading Well
Karen Swallow Prior
I cannot remember who recommended this to me. Perhaps I found it on Goodreads. It looks like a nice brainy book. ~grin~

Bible Faith Study Course
Kenneth E. Hagin
I've been working my way through this one for a long time, but I have learned so very much that helped me through my cancer battle. Each time I pick Bible Faith up, I tend to re-read notes and highlighted portions before I read more. It slows my 

30 Days to Understanding the Bible
Max Anders
30 Days to Understanding The Bible by Max Anders is my current review book. I've just read a little. They suggest just 15 minutes a day.

Miss Read
Tales from a Village School
My friend, Karen Andreola, suggested Miss Read's Tales from a Village School. I will borrow it from our local library through the inter-library loan system. You should check to see if your library participates. I've just discovered my library does it, and it's been super.

For the Family's Sake
Value of Home in Everyone's Life
Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
I've been slowly reading For the Family's Sake for awhile now.

The Light Between Oceans
M.L. Stedman
I'm trying out a new local book club. The Light Between Oceans is the January selection. Christy is the February Selection.

Catherine Marshall
I know that I either own this book or have given it away. It has been in my possession; therefore, I have chosen not to purchase it again for the book club. If I don't find it in time, I'll borrow it from the library.

Between Two Shores
Between Two Shores  is an historical fiction book that was offered to me just this morning for review. It should be released sometime in February.

The New Testament

I finished my Bible reading plan for 2018 just before the end of the year. It's time to start again. I don't expect to finish this winter. I'll just do what I can then move the remaining books to my Spring list. I use to keep track of what I've read, and sometimes use to listen instead of read. I have not yet chosen which version to use this time.
