You will be hearing about....

An Irish Country Doctor, and three other tales, An Irish Country Village, An Irish Country Christmas, and An Irish Country Girl, because I just won these books in a giveaway by Nan over at Letters from a Hill Farm. This is the first time I have ever won anything, and I am expecting to enjoy these books a lot. I guess I've been watching too many 1940s movies lately, because the phrase that comes to my mind is: "Gee, this is swell!"

Thanks so much, Nan.

Also, please see Jodi's comment on Cabin Fever Remedies for Children and her hilarious contribution.

What do kids really like best? What items really do fire their imaginations and get them spinning out scenarios? It's an interesting question. But then it's an interesting question as to what a child's mind is like -- the child before they have hit that stage where they are pretty much in the real world, even though they are fledglings. With girls, I always think that they have lost their child mind when the activity of talking is satisfying. I remember being about 9 years old and seeing teenage girls talking and talking and thinking to myself, "All they are doing is talking! Why aren't they bored stiff?"

Ohh.. I just picked this book up from the library. I know nothing about it, but am hoping it is a good read!
