. It’s set in the same fictional Ontario town as her previous novel, The Girls
, and just as compelling reading. I highly recommend both of these books for their gorgeous prose and excellent story-telling. Lansens is a Canadian now living in Los Angeles.–4–
I recently signed up to become a book reviewer for Thomas Nelson. You choose from a small selection of books, they send you the one you choose, and you review it on your blog and on one of the popular e-commerce sites (amazon.ca
, barnes and noble, whatever). Once you’ve posted the review, you can choose another book. My first book is Derailed: Five Lessons Learned from Catastrophic Failures of Leadership
by Tim Irwin. If you’d like to find out more about this opportunity, click on the box to the left (I don’t get a commission or anything!)–6–
The Pioneer Woman (aka Ree Drummond) Cookbook is available! Her recipes are my go-to ones for parties, family dinners, potlucks, and are full of fat, sugar, and all the good things in life. Her backstory is hilarious and her recipes are dee-lish. I’ve preordered one and it should be winging it’s way to me shortly. It’s called The Pioneer Woman Cooks
and you need it! In stock now!–7–
Z has started taking Wilson, our hyperactive terrier, on 3km walks once or twice a day. It’s fabulous, as he’s calming right down and seems much better behaved with less barking. He’s also had a chance to meet some new dogs and is leaning to be less anxious (read, aggressive) in the process. We were already walking him three times a day, so this has added a fourth walk and probably doubled his total exercise distance. I hope Z can keep it up through the winter.
