Snowy Monday

With snow falling I am looking forward to finish reading my book. I purchased it at a thriftstore for 50 cents and what a bargain it has turned out to be. Going Home by George C. Roche III stirs up memories within yourself as you eagerly turn the pages. Though its written about his life, his homeplace, and his family and friends he wrote it as a fiction to change names, etc. to protect his family and friends privacy. He left his mountain home and made a very good living in New York. One summer he told his partners he was taking the summer off and traveled back to the old homeplace. The cabin was falling apart since no one had lived there in many years but he spent his summer repairing the place and finding out he didn't want to leave. He told his partners he wouldn't be back and settled in the cabin way up on the mountain miles from town as winter set in. I am anxious to read more of the memories he shares and the adventures he is having.
Also while the snow is on the ground its been a good time to look through seed catalogs. If you find you don't have enough here are some sites you can click on to order free seed and garden  catalogs.

Sounds like the perfect book for the kind of weather you are experiencing. I guess Rusty is having fun on his walks this morning! Stay cozy and enjoy the snowfall.

Your book sounds interesting. I just started Coop by Michael Perry. It's about moving to a farm and raising chickens and pigs.....can't wait to read more.
