1. Collected by Fritz Karch. I have actually already checked out this book but I will tell you that I really enjoyed thumbing through the pages of items collected and ogling at all the stuff. I did learn a few things too. For instance, I have some vintage linens that have the name Vera in the bottom corner and I learned that it is Vera Neumann and some other interesting things.
2. Modern Pioneering by Georgia Pellegrini. I already rented this one too. I will admit that at first glance through the pages I wasn't too impressed and set it back down for a few days. When I did pick it back up and really looked at it I felt differently. She has some good tips on cooking and gardening and some pretty good looking recipes. I really like the small tips in the corners and plan to write several of them in my journal for later.
3. Captain Phillips dvd. My sister Mary Evelyn actually recommended this movie telling me that she and her husband were on the edges of their seats through the whole movie!
4. Leonardo the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems. I am currently hooked on Mo Willems children's books. The kids loved this book and I love any book that makes them laugh. And laugh they did at this one. It says at one point that the monster wants to scare the tuna salad out of someone. They thought this was the funniest thing they had ever heard. I have more Mo Willems books on the way.
5. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I am on the wait list for this one and it is only available on over drive from my library. Meaning it is a downloadable version that will have to be returned too. I normally don't like renting books this way because downloading it eats up our internet time. So I am thinking about buying the actual book. Anything that can make cleaning up feel like magic sounds good to me. I am looking forward to a different approach at being a tidy person and it making total sense. Things like that generally stick with me.
P.S. I do take suggestions on reading and movies. If you have seen or read anything good lately please let me know!
