I Just finished, Double Time on the Oregon Trail by Dixie Dawn Miller Goode.
I like time travel and I like western themed stories. Double Time on the Oregon Trail surprised me. I didn't realize it was YA. Most likely because I didn't pay
attention because the blurb for the book hooked me. The story held my interest all the way through to the end. (a good thing-right?)
Go west, young lady, go west and two young girls did.
Kenyon heads for Oregon with her family. Della heads for Oregon with her family.
Della's adventures and trials so different from Kenyon's will make her grow up while still a young lady. Her contact with Kenyon may mean live or death for her and her family. Della's and her brother's future road into life will be forever changed by
Kenyon's trials, like most dramatic teenagers, are mostly in her head. However, her exuberance as her eyes open, and she begins to embrace the journey, make you wish you where sitting next to her and experiencing the sights with
Oh, did I mention the sojourn of each girl are over a 150 years apart.
Take a few minutes and re-live those years when change was hard and being a young person harder. WELL DONE, Dixie.
Here's where to find her book(s) so she can take you on the journey too.
If this is you: keep reading.
The Staying Organized Survival Guide by Chloe Wilson
Ha ha. This book is perfect for you. OK, OK. It’s perfect for me.
If you breathe (those of us un-oganized) you wonder how to not just get-- but how to stay organized. For there is no doubt those who have mastered the art seem to
flow a bit easier through life. Not sure if it’s just an illusion, but I sure am willing to find out.
So when Chloe Wilson offered her book for free I would have jumped at the chance to read it. However, not being that organized I found the offer two days too late. And being the whiner I am I posted my dismay. Who says whining doesn’t get you things. Ms. Wilson saw it and kindly stepped up to the plate.
The book doesn’t tell you anything you didn’t know about us disorganized ones. It did, however, tell you how to Start. Starting is was most of us dread. She not only
tells us how to start but where and why.
My first excuse was I don’t have a timer. Ha... not in her list of reason to put this off.
Good payday not till next week. Phew, don’t need to rush into anything.
Ah, motivation Ms. Wilson had done her job.
An hour later I downloaded a timer from the internet (it’s so cute.) Oops, my double
intent was also organize my time on internet. Doesn’t work unless you set it.
Maybe, it needs to be my new screen.
Anyway, today I did work on two pantry shelves. Results five wine bottles (empty-of
course) in bag ready to go the a wine making friend. Five items moved to cabinet
with the rest of the similar items.
Discovered three boxes of snack cracker packs, snack bars and cookies that
apparently hubby put there and I did know we had. These went into the basket on
counter for such items.
Time up! Stayed and straightened out snack basket.
Accomplishments: Area cleaned, some items trashed, some items put in
proper place, and just saved money not replacing the food I did not know we had.
Need the motivation to get out your timers ticking. Then I suggest you get:
