Monday mashup & links I love

                                                         A gathering of thoughts, 
                                                   links, news, highlights, funnies,
                                                                      and / or
 the latest goings - on here at the blog.
Sort of a weekly dumping ground of updates and features.........:
Here goes: 


You know we love travel around here....
when we're not actually out and on the road, 
the next best thing is reading about it...new places, old places.
Doesn't matter.

I've recently fallen for Kristin Hannah's latest,  The Great Alone,


based on her real life experiences living in Alaska!
I'm a huge huge Kristin Hannah admirer, but this, 
when paired with Krakauer's Into the Wild, is a perfect match.
The latter title's about a young man from a 
wealthy family who ditched his life, donated tons to charity then burned his cash
 determined to adventure through nature much like
his heroes, John Muir and Jack London.



I won't give away more of the plot, but it is a must-read.


I've seen this gem in a few places on social media
and since I love it and believe it,  had to share here!:





I've a giveaway coming up for this wonderful 
sacramental prep book.
It served both my kids well as they prepared for confirmation years ago
and I'd be delighted to offer a copy to one fortunate reader 
lucky enough to win!
Once "sacrament season" is upon us, after Easter, I'll be posting!
So come on back soon!   😉


Since we entered Holy Week yesterday,
I thought I'd share my post from the archives on 
making all sorts of lovely palm crosses, rosettes and more.....✝️
