i needed something. something to get excited about amid the bleak winter months. am off to a good start on these. i've already borrowed the space trilogy from the library, and grant received the universe in a nutshell for christmas, which has turned out to be a gift for me too. i'm well into the chapter on relativity and hoping the subtle humor keeps up. here's to old favorites, must-sees, and a few gambles in literature and film this year.

Reading number 005 is a fabulous read. I loved those as a child.

What a great selection!

Can I also recommend The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer? I'm sure you would love it.

I've never thought of making a 'to read' and 'to watch' list. Normally just go by what is recommended to me. I have never read any of those books before. Hope it's enjoyable for you! :-)

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
