A Lesson Learned

Last night I wrote up a post and suddenly started to get tired.  I decided to save it as a draft and finish it in the morning.  It didn't save though and I'm sad.  I did a test with this post to see how it works.  Either my click didn't register or there was a gremlin in the works.  When I clicked "Save as draft" for this one I could tell it worked because the screen changed as the gears turned to release the little elves to move the item to the proper location.  I checked and there is a new link for drafts and I was able to access it and continue.  I guess I need to slow down and make sure things work before turning off my computer.  

 

Oh well, ya live and learn. I looked outside and there are no shards of sky on the ground so all is well.

Llama Llama Mad at Mama - Anna Dewdney

In this book Llama Llama had went to the grocery store with Mama Llama. Llama Llama had to learn how to have patience with Mama Llama in the grocery store. I can use this story in my classroom when I am trying to teach my students how to have patience. This book gives examples of how someone acts when they are not being patient.

really really...cute!
Patience - Helena Stone
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Xander's string of one night stands leads his best friend, Erik, to bet he cannot stay celibate for 30 days. Once the idea settled with Xander, he really was determined to do it. He just never factored into the equation a certain tattoo artist whom Xander chooses to use for permanent reminder of his bet. Troy's tattoo business takes up all his time, since HIS so called best friend left him with the start up of their joint venture. He recognizes Xander. And the so called best friend keeps creeping into Troy's thoughts and he wants to leave Xander well alone. But he can't. My first and strongest thought after finishing this was: cute. really, really cute. And I can't shift that thought, even after 3 days. So, cute its gonna have to be. I loved how Xander's mind worked, once challenged by Erik. Loved how he processed it all. Loved that, while sorely tempted by Troy, he managed to stay the full 30 days. And nearly cried when it all started to go wrong so close to the end! Troy is right to try to steer clear of Xander. Troy's so called best friend, Shane, really messed them both up. But Troy eventually sees past Shane's hold. Troy and Xander's relationship grows through the 30 days, and because of the time scale, its a while before they finally get nekkid and naughty! And I LOVED being made to wait! I do love it when it takes time for the main characters to get themselves together enough for the main event, but here?? It was especially.....cute. I'm sorry, there's that word again! It pains me deeply that I cannot find a better word than cute but I really did enjoy this book! Its not a negative word, not at all! I hope I get to read any more in this series, Erik needs a story, for sure! a solid 4 star read. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

Lexile Level: 530L

 

 

The Giving Tree is a heartfelt story about a tree who loved a young boy. The boy took everything that the tree had to offer and the tree was always there to make the boy happy. In this story, the boy ages and the tree transforms down to a stump, but the boy always returns to the tree, and the tree always loves the boy.

I would use this book in a kindergarten to 4th grade classroom. In a classroom I would use this book to have  discussions on giving and receiving, emotions, patience, kindness, and unconditional love. Children can learn about the importance of caring, giving, and how we should treat others

It Happened in Scotland (Kilts and Quilts #6) by Patience Griffin

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After pulling herself out of a three-year fog of grief over the loss of her husband, Joe, Rachel is bringing their five-year-old daughter to see his hometown of Gandiegow and visit with his grandfather.

 

But Rachel wasn’t planning on running into Joe’s cousin, the man who made her have second thoughts at the altar...
 
Brodie has come home to help his grandfather’s fishing business, but he’d prefer not to see Rachel.

 

Although she did break his heart six years ago, the grip she has on him hasn’t faltered. If they can stop butting heads long enough and learn to overcome the past, they may find new love in the new year.

 

 

 

 

 

I love the heart whole emotional mending and healing process for each stage of the quilting sort of creates a fictitious healing for the reader and its characters. As sad as this book was it also brings a lot of heart and a lot of the finding ways to cope and embrace life once more kind of read.

There's also a deeper love story and sacrifice and hope drawn into the pages as well which is really kind of beautiful. I even love Brodies silliness which helps lift some of the seriousness of the under current story going on.

It Happened in Scotland embraces being true to one self and opening the heart to love. I really enjoyed reading this book. Love it.
