Simple Abundance

As a moving present, I was given daily reflection book, Simple Abundance, authored by Sarah Ban Breathnach.

I’ve just started it and I suggest starting on January 1, even though it may be July 22nd. What I’ve found so far is thought provoking. I’ve found this book, starting with Jan. 1, to go along well with my new move. I’ve just moved to Phoenix, AZ from northern IL and these little reflections help keep things in prospective for me. This book is geared toward women, but could be readable for a man as well. On January 3, the day I’m on today, states: “Simple Abundance, 1: an inner journey; 2. a spiritual and practical course in creative living; 3. a tapestry of contentment.”

If this definition sounds intriguing, please check out this book. I’m only 3 days in, but I can feel it helping me and uplifting me. I use it along with my meditation session. I like to sit quietly on the floor of my bedroom and be still and take in the moment and be present. If it wasn’t so hot, I’d be out under a tree in the shade. If you need to center your life, I suggest this book!

Good Omens finished!

So I finished Good Omens yesterday! What a fun book! It didn’t turn out at all like I expected. Good for Adam for being strong enough, and logical enough, to thwart the end of the world. I think there should be a sequel to this one. The authors mentioned that maybe they might do one.
Overall, a very funny, lite book. I’d recommend it for nearly any age group!

We’re on to The Thirteenth tale. I’m about 2 chapters in and it seems quite good! I already feel connected to the main female character and can’t wait to read on!

Hey Readers!

Sorry that you’re so sick, K! I hope it goes away too, but you may want to consider the dr. if it doesn’t. My mom went in with the same symptoms and found out it’s bronchitis. She is prone to getting this, though, so don’t worry too much. Plus I know you hate drs. :/

As far as finding time to read, I find it difficult too. Not right now, though. I think I may go out to the pool later this afternoon when it gets a bit cooler and finish off Good Omens. We can wait to skype about it until you’re feeling better.

I’m blogging from my own apartment today! We just got the internet and TV up and running! Yay!

TGIF!

-J
