Yesterday I didn't get on the computer until 10:00 in the evening. It felt great. As much as I like just mindlessly looking at other people's lives through their blogs and facebook it was just refreshing. I should have more days like that. 

Instead I read a book. I was at the library, child free on Saturday, and so I had time to look at books for me. I saw this one called the Cinderella Pact by  Sarah Strohmeyer.

 I rarely pick up a book without a recommendation because there are so many dirty or frustratingly lame books out there-you know the ones where you just HAVE to finish but its painful to do it.  Anyway, this one somehow appealed to me.  It's like Confessions of Shopaholic meets, uh...how do I put this...fat girl???  I enjoyed it until the last two chapters where the main character became weak and I felt like I was watching a tween movie's rendition of Cinderella. 

....And Since I've been a food kick lately, I'll share the biscuit recipe I used for Strawberry Shortcakes that I thought turned out pretty good.  I got the recipe from my mom and I'm not sure where she got it from.

1 3/4 c flour
2 T Sugar
1 T Baking Powder
1/2 t Baking Soda
1/2 t Salt
1/4 c Cold Margarine
1 Egg
3/4 C Sour Cream

Mix the dry ingredients together. Cut butter into mixture. Cream egg and sour cream together then mix into dry mixture until moist. Take out and knead about 25 times. Roll out and cut into biscuit size pieces. Bake 425 for less than 10 minutes until golden. 
And just for kicks her's Boo all dressed up Sunday. She is almost ready for nursery, HALLELUJAH!!!!
Until next time....bye

I see you found her a polka dot dress. She looks adorable. I still think you should read the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I think you would like it.

The book Stacey recommends is good, but very real. I don't like real books. It is about WW2 in Guernsey, and perhaps a little slow.

Boo does look very cute especially her hair. But I bet that only lasted until you got to church.

Phew! I found you. I didn't know you started a new blog. I just got caught up. You should do one more post on your last blog so it will show up at the top of people's reading lists...just a suggestion.

Love the new blog! Miss you and Boo!
