30-Day Challenge

In other news, I am making little ♥s for #yarnifiedlovebombs and giving them away or putting them places. So far, I’ve given out 7 and put one in each of 7 bags for houseless ladies I hope to see on Sunday. I’m putting other things in the bags also.

Life is good when we focus on others ~ fun even 🙂

I found these 2 books at a collector’s store in Leavenworth, KS last Monday ~ what a find ! ! ! My grandmother had one of these at her home and I loved reading the true accounts of life as it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The original was published in the mid-50s and these are reprints from the late ’70s. We enjoy the true short accounts of people’s experiences with wild animals, Indians, etc. etc.
