    We got hit with some amazing, cool, rainy, weather last week!

    I took the boys to Ray Harral Nature Park one day when it was raining with no lighting.

    Hiking in the rain is one of my favorites things to do.

    In case you are wondering how I took pictures in the pouring rain, I used a modified ziplock bag.

    Like this one on Instructables.

    I am thinking I might need to move to Oregon or Washington.

    Do you live where it rains a lot?

    What is your favorite thing to do in the rain?

    Quirky Christian Fiction

    July 16th, 2014

    I really like to read.

    A lot.

    That being said, I get really tired of reading about perfect people falling in love with other perfect people and spending the rest of their life marvelling at their shared perfection…

    It might say something about me that I really like a character that is quirky, real, and maybe slightly unhinged.

    I am always on the lookout for a good piece of Christian fiction that makes me laugh.

    Here are some of my current favorites(at least that I can remember, there are probably more!).

     

    1. Nosy in Nebraska Series ~By Mary Connealy

    A Mousaphobe that lives in a town with the world’s largest mouse makes for a hilarous first book in this series. I like the mystery and the realness of the characters.

    I like almost everything Mary Connealy has written! She writes westerns also and always includes a little mystery as well as a lot of quirky fun.

    You can get her book “Out of Control” free for Kindle right now.

    2. Squeaky Clean Series ~By Christy Barritt

    About a crime scene cleaner that can’t keep her nose out of trouble. I enjoy the mystery in these as well as the humor.

    3. PJ Sugar Series ~By Susan May Warren

    Trouble seems to follow PJ around and it makes for an interesting and funny series. I like to reread these once a year.

    Okay, I reread most books I like once a year…

     

    4. Lauren Holbrook Series ~By Erynn Mangum

    The first book in this series starts out very much like Jane Austen’s Emma but has it’s own quirky twist.

    Just be warned you will come away from this series craving chocolate and coffee…

    I like a lot of her Novellas as well!

    5. Moon Over Tokyo ~By Siri Mitchell

    I really like several of Siri Mitchell’s older books. Her newer historical dramas are a bit too depressing for me.

    Kissing Adrien” is another good one from her that I own.
