Hello Again!

Hello everyone! I'm still here...just really busy the last couple of months. Thanks to all of you that have sent me emails checking up on me...you're all so sweet and I appreciated the concern. Everything has been going very well in my life. During the end of May, I started a new job at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City that I really, really love! I'm so glad that I decided to take the job. I enjoy what I do and I'm lucky that I get to work with some really fun people. We all seem to get along really great. However, it's been a bit of an adjustment to my schedule with the additional drive time...still getting down a routine that works for me.

Another nice thing about my new job is that it allows me to take Trax to work, which has allowed me to read some books I've been wanting to read...I've even renewed my library card! One book that I read during the last couple of weeks was These Is My Words: The Diary of Sarah Agnes Prine, 1881-1901 by Nancy E. Turner. I loved, loved, loved this book! If you haven't read it, I would suggest you add it to your list of must-reads. All the while reading the book, I was in such awe that someone could have such an amazing, action-packed life...because, of course, I thought it was the ACTUAL diary of Sarah Agnes Prine. Only when I reached the end of the book and read through the little Q&A section with the author did I find out that although Sarah Agnes Prine did exist, as did a couple of the other characters in the book, the majority of characters and events in the book are purely fictional. So, be forewarned...it kind of made me a little sad to find that out...that this amazing woman didn't exist as portrayed in the book. Well, I'm sure she was an amazing woman in other ways! =)

I'm requesting a favor of you...If you have any suggestions of good books to read, please pass them my way.

As far as quilting goes, I've been working on a few baby blankets, but haven't been able to find the time to actually finish them. This is unfortunate, as one of the babies was just recently born. I guess I really need to get stitching!

Well, hopefully now that things are starting to settle down, I'll be posting on more of a regular basis again. I did notice that I've flown right past my one-year blogging anniversary, so I'll have to think up a fun giveaway...stay tuned! =)

Welcome back...of course I've missed your posts! Sounds like a wonderful new job...and I'm definitely going to look up that book! I'm currently reading "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society" and love it! Have a great day! Oh, and I have a blogiversary give-away coming up next week!

Anna- Glad to have you back. I was just going to recommend The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. I just finished it and love it. Have you read "The Persian Pickle Club"? It has adoption, quilting and a murder mystery. What more can you ask for in a book? That's one of my favorites. I also like "Tallgrass," by the same author. Most of the books in the Elm Creek Quilts series are good. Start with the first one and then after that you can kind of skip around, but you do need to read the first one first. Happy Reading!

I've heard so much about These is my words, thanks for another recommendation! It was fun to go to the RS meeting with you and get to know you a bit better.
