Batting .200

Can you believe that it has been a year since I totally immersed myself in this world called Blogger??  Isn't that crazy??  They say that time flies when you are having fun...and I must've been having a blast because this, my friends, is my 200th post!!

I know, I know.  Most of you are wishing you had known so you could've brought me a gift or, at the very least, a card...but that's ok!  You being here, reading my ramblings, is gift enough.  (But for those of you who are insistant, email me and I will provide my home address so you can mail off goodies for the party...)

I really wish, this being such a monumental post and all, that I had something earth shattering to share with you all who are kind enough to still be reading after my that unselfish gift hint...and in a way, I guess I do.  Are you ready for it???

Ok...brace yourself, cuz it's huge!!

I'm back!!!

No, no.

You can stop holding your breath now.

THAT was the announcement.

Me.  Bina.  I'm back to the blogger after a month's muuuch needed vacation.

...does this mean I don't still get that gift???

Fine...but I at least hope you will still pop in and visit with me.

Oh, yay!!

Welp, summer is still in full swing in our house...but I do praise God for a break in the heat which kept my family chained to our pool!  Our a/c is out ~ both in the house AND my leather-seated car ~ so sweat has been a constant companion that seems to leave only when immersed in the cool waters of our little oasis out back.  I am pretty sure that I have been in that pool more in the last 2 weeks than I have in my whole life...and not only am I cooler, but I am noticing that, by the way my shorts are fitting lately, exercise DOES do a body good!!  Who knew?!?!

So, as a way to ease back into the world-o-blogging, I thought I'd mix in some book reviews on some amazing reads I stumbled into this summer.  These aren't my "normal" type of review as these will all be books I have purchased on my own...but they will for sure be ones that will always have a home on my personal bookshelf as they influenced my heart, my mind and/or (if really good) my laughter. 

So...hope to see you guys around the Blogger...and I pray your summer has been as full (if much cooler) as mine has been thus far.

Got any book recommendations for me?? Books you read that just blew you away??  I am on the last "choice" in my pile so would love to find some new titles!!

Listening to the Wii, TV and the evening breeze all while looking up as always...

I have the Welcome Back Kotter (sp?!) playing in my head now, you can pretend I am singing it... or don't because then you'll run away! So instead I'll just say congrats on your 200th post! I figured you'd be giving something away, but I guess I can give you a gift instead... ummmm....we'll see.

I want to know what you've been reading as I have done tons of reading this summer. I'm caught up on the latest House of Hope series by Neta Jackson, read a book I bought for a bood at B-A-M. .. I'm not helping, so I'll go. Bought my first Ted Dekker yesterday... have to start tonight.

Welcome back!

Only new books in my stack are children's books, and I don't think a praying mouse in "Mortimer's First Garden" is what you're looking for! :-) Glad you're back.

Diane said...

Missed you! :O)
