Booking Through Thursdays - QUICK!

btt button

"Quick–what are you reading right now? (Other than this question on
this website, of course.) Would you recommend it? What’s it about?"


Most currently would be Sweet Revenge by Diane Mott Davidson.  My favorite cozy mystery series, I'm catching up on the ones I had missed, and yes, I would definitely recommend them!  This is not my favorite in the series, but it's still a nice, cozy, read.

I'm also avidly reading A Year In The Life Of William Shakespeare in 1599.  So far I love this book - but it's an actual BOOK, not an ebook, so I don't have it with me as often, and it is not exactly light reading, so it will take me awhile.

The other books on this list?  I WILL finish Walden.  But with so many other fun things to read, I forget about this one.  And I've misplaced Retracing Our Roots and No Longer a Slumdog.  They are both on bookshelves around here somewhere, I cleaned thoroughly last month and I am sure I put them away...  I need to dig them off the shelves and finish them!

  1. William Shakespeare was brilliant but I could never get into reading his plays. I liked watching them but screenplays are so hard for me to understand on paper. Especially those written with accents.

Replacing The Broken Glass on Our Patio Table -

We have horrible winds here.  One storm picked up our large patio table & smashed it sideways against the deck railing, shattering the glass top.
After looking at a couple of options, I bought a piece of plywood (they cut it to size for me even) and a remnant of linoleum from our local flooring store.
We should have sealed the plywood with an all weather paint first. 
Then we attached the linoleum with contact glue.  The entire project cost me about $35 and took minutes to complete. :-)

Homiletics Worksheet

One of my favorite seminars at BSF was on Homiletics.  I love the process of studying the bible through Homiletics.  Recently my friend Natalie taught our Sunday School class how to do homiletics, and again I found I really enjoyed the process, and I decided I wanted to use it more frequently.

There is a great "Crash Course In Homiletics" here - http://www.christinakline.com/homiletics-crash-course/
Earlier this summer our Pastors wife suggested, in our Womens Sunday School Class, that we choose one epistle and read it every day, for a month.  I love this bible reading plan.  I have used many plans over the years, and have read the bible cover to cover a few times now, so the idea of really learning one epistle at a time felt like a good next step for me.
For the month of August, I am reading Colossians every day.  It is only 4 chapters, a quick, easy read every morning.  I decided the 4 chapters made it perfect to use homiletics for my weekly study, doing one chapter each week…

How to Make a Chalkboard Graphic

I'm going to assume you already have a basic knowledge of some sort of graphics program.  Gimp is free.  I use Paint Shop Pro - because I have used it for many years, and I lack the attention span (& budget!) to keep up with photoshop.  

First, The Background.

Next The Fonts:

This site has links to all of the fonts on the poster above http://colormemeg.com/2013/01/free-chalkboard-fonts-printable.html (most of my favorites are on her list, so I didn't see any sense in replicating it. Plus, she did it better than I would have.)
I personally recommend going to Dafont and d…
