Project 360: Week 24

{161} My dad planted lots of bee friendly plants in our garden.

{162} I went to the library for the first time in forever. And I might have went slightly overboard. I have six weeks to read these books. You say delusional...I say optimistic. :)

{163} Sweet flowers.

{164} Moss after an afternoon storm and rain shower.

{165} A new batch of baby chicks.

{166} I'm currently working on my fourth library book. {Well, fifth if you count the picture book I checked out. Which was absolutely adorable and will be added to my picture book collection eventually.}

{167} Today's eggs.

Happy Father's Day to all of you dads out there, including my own. I got my love of books and reading from my dad (though *ahem* he prefers nonfiction and rarely, if ever, reads fiction. I always pick at him about that because I'm a fiction person myself :). He's also one of the most hardworking people I know...he worked for 30 years at UPS and since retiring from there, he farms full time. He was the one who got our family started down this "unusual" farming and natural/no chemicals path years ago (hm...I should blog about that soon), and I'm so thankful for that. Because if it weren't for him, my suppers would probably still consist of Mountain Dew, frozen pizza rolls, and that disgusting processed popcorn "chicken." Ew. :)

Until next time,


  1. My dad is more of a nonfiction person too.

    My library stacks tend to be quite large, and I have never yet read all of those stacks, but I still keep doing it!

  2. I want to read that book. I have a book problem too!

  3. You remind me of me when I go to the library. I come out with a huge stack & barely make it to my car. I've read the Penderwick #3 book you've got... trouble is I can't remember it very well (I think the first one was my favorite, though). I just finished a good reworking of Beauty & the Beast by Wendy Mass {quite satisfying}!
    Blessings to you Ms. Bookish Thing! =)

  4. Ooooh! Stacks of books! My copy of Divergent showed up in the mail a few days ago and can't wait to start reading it. I totally miss the summers gone by when I had nothing to do but read and play outside. My little sibs keep getting lectures from me about how lucky they are, and that they need to enjoy the freedom while it lasts! ;-) Also, I loved the Willoughbys and really liked The Westing Game (I read it years and years ago, sort of forgot about it, and am now feeling the urge to re-read). Have you read anything by Heyer before? I haven't (yet...), but I've been meaning to. I'm curious to know how she compares to Austen. It looks like you've got a fun couple of weeks ahead of you, Kristin. :D

    Yes. I would LOVE to hear about your family's natural farm, so you should definitely blog about it. ;-)

    1. I've heard so much about Divergent, so I'm curious to see how I like it! I love dystopian stories, but the overly hyped ones have been kind of hit-or-miss for me. I absolutely loved the Hunger Games, but didn't like Delirium at all.

      No, I haven't read any of Heyer's books yet. But she's been recommended by lots of Austen fans! I got one of her books for my birthday but haven't read it yet...I just couldn't resist picking up another at the library when I saw it. :)


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
