The Book Query
A book that changed my life, besides the Bible:
Spilt Grape Juice and 12 Steps for the Recovering Pharisee

A book I have read more than once, besides the Harry Potter series:
The Far Arena A wonderful novel about life in Ancient Rome

A book I would take with me if I were stuck on a desert island:
My best answer would be an inflatable book, so I Googled that and found this. Not only is there a book, there is a treasure map for the island!

A book that made me laugh:
I Stink by Kate and Jim McMullan. A board book with fragrant presentation of the alphabet

A book that made me cry:
I cry at Hallmark commercials! So pretty much anything that involves tragedy/romance
Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Anne Burns would probably fit nicely here. It was recommended by my mother-in-law several years ago. She said it was a pretty good discription of what southern life was like when she grew up.

A book that I wish had been written:

A book that I wish had never been written:
Joseph Smith's book

A book that I have been meaning to read:
Blue Like Jazz, I am at least half way through this one and like it, I just got bogged down and didn't finish it.

I am currently reading:
Open Season by C.J. Box. (just finished this one) He is a Wyoming author with an award winning first book, I checked out his second book today.
Childrens Writers & Illustrators Market 2007

And the Ladies of the Club needs some sort of category of its own. It was a wonderful book written by a woman in her late 80's.

We had almost an inch of rain this week. That is a fourth of what we have had all year according to the national weather service. That means there is snow in the mountains surrounding us.
We have 3 couches, 3 love seats, and 3 chairs and a few sets of miscellaneous cushions in the shop. I had a very busy month. The college brought in several pieces of weight room equipment to be recovered and the hospital is bringing exam tables. Repairs for the furniture store are coming in steadily and they are opening a new store, so there will be even more.

Yellowstone Harmony celebrated last week. We unveiled our new Sweet Adelines charter by hosting a party. There was food and singing. Howard and Joanne introduced us to new tags.

The inconsistent blogger returns.

My car and sunglasses have been restored to their rightful place, they came back with a whopping bill for replaced seals and a timing belt.

I am 8 lessons into a 12 lesson writing for children class, hoping to learn how to publish a manuscript.

Johnny blogged about our Labor Day drive. We hiked along the Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone River. There is a place where the river has sculpted the granite into sleek curves. Our friend is peering into a round hole that tunnels all the way through the rock.
The hole reminds me of looking into someone's ear!

There is a wonderfully serene waterfall above the rocks. It is a small waterfall that you can step across at the top. In the bushes above the cascade there are delicate spider webs.

This month at work, I am covering workout equipment from the local college and exam tables from the hospital.

Last week I called up an old skill and helped a friend pack all of her dishes, crystal, and glassware. Today we moved it and carried several boxes up 13 stairs. Whew!!
