About meI live on 10 acres in Southwestern PA. This was originally part of 600 and some acres that my ancestors Thomas and Mary settled in the 1760s. God blessed my husband and I with 4 beautiful daughters and now we have a son-in-law to go with them!

About my libraryIt has long ago taken over my house. My mom lives in fear that our old farmhouse is going to collapse from the weight of all these books!

Happy Thingaversary, Regina!
I won't be doing threads again this year. But I do like to keep my list (which is why I have a thread in the group).

Let me know if there's something I can do xox
I was thinking about you today. I hope you and yours are well. xox

I am so sorry for your loss. Our animals are special to us. They give so much and ask so little in return.

Please tell me where you live in relation to Bethlehem, PA. Are we far away from each other?

Thanks for posting. It means a lot during these days of preparation for surgery.

You are a kind soul!

I loved Rules of the Road when I read it. Truly, anything by her is marvelous.

Have you read Hope Was Here? If not, I highly recommend it.

Many thanks for your outreach. I am so sorry for your loss..Goats and a ram? Oh, how tragic. Please share more if it eases your pain. I would have a major meltdown as well.

Hugs to you!
so nice to hear from you Regina

How are you?
You're most welcome, Regina, and thanks very, very much for your 2012 wishes! I send the same thoughts back to you and yours.


It is nasty here in NE PA, icy, bitter cold and freezing rain.

Emotionally it is good to be back to work. Physically, I'm very tired.
Thanks for asking.
Hi Regina

Are you experiencing this miserable icy storm? It is nasty outside.


If you are planning to come to Lehigh this spring, please do let me know when. I would love to meet you!

Thanks for your kind comments posted on my thread. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

I didn't find your thread for 2011. Would you give me the link?

Hope you and yours are well!
Great! Faith's already posted some questions for you other church librarians.

THings are unchanged which means it's still difficult and ambiguous. Great is He...
Started a new thread for church librarians in our group which you may or may not find helpful.

Telling Faith and AKbkwmn too. They're the only other church librarians I know of on here.
Thanks for the link---and the compliment. Hope you'll find time to drop in to my thread often.
I'm with Susan--I haven't found you yet either! Can you send me a link, also, please.

Okay -- since you're there AND I can't find you, would you give me the link? I can totally relate to not being able to keep up! Hopefully this year will be smoother for both of us. :)
What a nice pic! Are you doing 75 in 2010? was just looking for your thread to stay in touch with you.


Thank you too much, as my Italian grandmother-in-law used to say! I didn't know the review was up there at all! I hope to visit Edinburgh one day soon, though no plan has been made.

Happy reading in 2010, Regina, and I hope I'll see you round the Thing.

Your message was so sweet, thanks for stopping by! I try to read all the threads and I've dropped by yours quite a bit but never commented before, but there's a lot of threads - if you get a chance, check out my thread sometime. It has the name "Angela" in the title!
I'm going to try to remember your name is Regina - when I first saw your comment I thought maybe your name was Mary - screen names are tricky.
It sounds funny when you tell non-readers that you love to touch and feel books, doesn't it? I was just saying on my thread the other day that I'm decluttering my place but my big clutter weaknesses are books and clothes. I just love to look at books and try to work them into my decorating whenever possible.
I'm going to send you a friend request, okay? Talk to you soon!
Take care,
PS - Hamburg is on the other side of the state - halfway between Reading and Allentown - maybe 2 hours away from Philly in good traffic!
Hi, Regina...thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries list! You're quite selective, I see.

Have a lovely day
God surely did gift you with four beautiful daughters.
Thank you so much for your kind words about the loss of our cat Moose.
We only had him 3 years, but he did bring us a great deal of joy during that short time. How quickly they become members of one's family.
I have never spoken with you but see your posts frequently on ~~T's thread as I keep up with that one. He always sets my feet back on straight when they are going cross-ways or crooked. I love that thread and the mind and heart behind it.
Thank you very much for stopping by. You will never know how much I appreciate that you placed me on your heart for a moment. Thank you.
Hello T&M,

I haven't read the Farm, or even heard of it. It sounds pretty depressing, and as I already suffer with depression, I don't think I will be reading it! :)

I have just finished The Virginian by Own Wister, a really superb book and one I recommend.

Thanks for dropping by.

~ TT
Here's the beginning ...

I'm verrrry glad that it was a dead ball! I think your new rule is a good one! LOL Our cats are lounging contentedly :) Steph and I are doing much better. I'm in the throes of trying to get a scrapbook together for mom and dad's 50th -- a ton of work, but I have a bit of help. Thanks for asking.
Thanks very much for your comments regarding my reviews.
I highly recommend the book Kira-Kira. I've read 47 books thus far in 2009 and this one stands out as the best.

I'm interested in learning about your impressions should you choose to read it.
