Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

This is the story of little Oliver Twist. He is an orphan born in poverty. This is the tale of his miserable life, until a friend discovers his true identity, rescues, and adopts Oliver. This story has a very Happy Ending for Oliver. I enjoy happy endings.

e reader cozy

I bought another e reader. Because I wanted one that was back lit. This on did not have a cover with it so I knit an e reader cozy for my reader. The pattern can be found here . My reader is a little slimmer then this pattern calls for. So I went down to to a size 6 needle instead of a size 8 that the pattern calls for. I did not felt the pattern. I did not add the button. It fits my reader perfectly. I used Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in the color Painted Desert. This is an easy pattern to knit, and easy to adjust to the size of your reader.

How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron

I always enjoy reading Knit Lit. I usually read Knitting mystery's.  This book is a light, some times fun, sometimes dramatic, and often romantic love story. There is a very handsome cowboy, that would be Cade. He happens to be a sheep rancher in California. Then there is Abigail, she inherits a cottage full of everything that she would need to set you a yarn shop. The cottage just so happens to be on the sheep ranch that Cade has inherited. The two clash in the beginning of the book. But the story ends up with a happily ever after ending. Just the way I like a Love story to end. I enjoyed the book. If you like Knit Lit, or romance. I would say read this book you will not be disappointed.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;

Enjoying one moment at a time;

Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

Taking, as He did, this sinful world

as it is, not as I would have it;

Trusting that He will make all things right

if I surrender to His Will;

That I may be reasonably happy in this life

and supremely happy with Him

Forever in the next.

Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe

This book was written in 1722 and is quite a story. It is supposed to have been written from her Memorandums. Moll Flanders is not her real name, and you never find out what her real name is while reading the book. She was born very poor, because her mother was in prison. She was raised by a good foster mother. She always wanted to Be and thought the she was, and should be treated as a gentlewoman. She turns out to be a whore, and a thief. She has several husbands, and lovers. Several children also. None of them she keeps to raise herself. At the end of the book she is a very rich woman. I found the story interesting, very interesting. But I don't believe it to be true. This Moll Flanders had to be the most selfish, greedy woman on earth if this story is true. As the author says that it is at the beginning of the book. It is a long book. If you enjoy reading Victorian novels as I do, I suggest that you read the book and determine for yourself if it is at all a true story or not.
