Weekend reading


It's been a hectic week here with lots of phone calls to my sister and a dear friend who are both in hospital.  A big hello to both Tricia and Rose, I'm hoping you both have a speedy recovery.  The rest of the week was spent on gardening and housework but I've had a break from knitting.  I'm not sure why but I know I'll take up the needles again soon.  Tomorrow we're taking Jamie out for a drive in the bushland northwest of Brisbane and for lunch at one of the tearooms or cafes along the way. It will be a good break for all of us.

I wonder if I can ask a favour. If you've read any of my books, particularly The Simple Home, would you please write a review either at goodreads.com or at the online store you bought it from. It will help with my book sales.  Thanks dear friends.

  1. How I wish I had the hash recipe on Wednesday. I made some and mum complained bitterly that it was wrong. I am trying to avoid waste so I appreciate the use it up recipes.

  2. Your sister and Rose both in the hospital! I hope they'll be out soon, and will remember them in my prayers.

    The refrigerator piece is something I need to read again. Maybe I should get a fridge thermometer, too. Thanks for the link!

  4. Hi Rhonda,

    I always look forward to dropping by on a Friday to have a look at your list of weekend reads :)

    I really enjoyed your book, 'The Simple Home' and wrote a review of it on Weekend Notes back in June (the link is here: http://www.weekendnotes.com/simple-home-book-review/ ). I'll write another one on Goodreads too when I get a minute.

    Have a lovely weekend :)

  10. That's not good about your sister and close friend. I hope it's not too serious. It's hard when you don't live close to loved ones. I would love to recommend The Simple Home on Good Reads with 5 stars!

  11. Hi Rhonda, hope your sister and friend are soon on the mend, it is hard when you are separated from loved ones and they are not well. I will attempt to put on a review of The Simple Home which has become my go to bible for my home care. I wish we could do something to force manufacturers to change product packaging so we do not have so much waste, is anyone else out there worried like I am about the amount of plastic in our lives?

  16. Rhonda, I'm sorry Tricia and Rose are ill. I hope they recover quickly and that you, Hanno and Jamie were refreshed by a day in the bushland - nature is good medicine. Beth in MN.
