House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

Windows to the Next World

Nice piece by Mary Biever:
Windows to the Next World

In it, she describes the kitchen scene I hope to replicate this year.

Biever writes: "The kitchen was the busiest room of her farmhouse, and she hummed from canning to cooking...Her home was a place where families were happy, the table was full of good food, and dinner conversation was fun. After we ate and cleaned the kitchen, weather permitting, we went to her living room — swings and gliders in the yard where we could see the flowers, feel the breezes, hear the chickens, and sometimes watch the trains. Here was a refuge where weary souls could rest."
