Lisa Day... Through Lisa's Eyes... A review of:
Women of the Way: Embracing to Camino
Embracing the 'What'?
I won a copy in a drawing. Which was a good thing. It makes you spread yourself imposed limits to read something different. That said I think I understand
Jane's title better..
The Camino is a journey to feed the soul.
If you ever wanted to do something to discover more about yourself and weren't sure how you go about accomplishing that goal. This book is for you.
This was Jane's reason “Many of my friends are puzzled why I, a nonbeliever, want to go on a pilgrimage. This long journey for me is not for religious devotion, but for introspection and adventure, providing me with an opportunity to discover languages, customs, and ways of life different from my heritage, as is the case for most people.”
If a journey like this is on your bucket list (It might be after you read this) then read this book. Ms. Blanchard tells you what, how, why, and when in such a way when you finish the book; envy will set in. Beware, it wasn't all fun and games for Jane, her husband, and those who crossed their trail along the way, but I don't believe in spoilers.
See why a “Women’s Discovery Skirt" that comes to just above her knees and provides a UPF 50+ rating and is quick to dry is an important item.
Do enjoy getting to know this fascinating lady. I did.

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:
