August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Hot Reads – Part 3 / What I am Reading

Hot Reads Part 3 / What I am Reading - sheerheart.org

Eighteen weeks ago I shared what I had read, was reading, and what I was wanting to read. Since then, many books have come and gone. Going to update you on my Goodreads Reading Challenge. If you are a lover of books, or just want to motivate yourself back into the reading habit, check out Goodreads.com and their Reading Challenges. It’s easy to set up and you pick your challenge. In 2015, I set my goal at 30 books; 2016 at 35 books; and 2017’s goal is 40 books. This…

Weekend Recap – 8.28.2017

Weekend Recap 8.28.2017 - sheerheart.org

It’s time for a little weekend recap action on the blog today. Hurricane Harvey has made its impact across Texas. However, it didn’t impact me quite as much as we thought/hoped for. Nonetheless, I’m sending up my prayers for all affected. As terrible as it has been to see the damage and pain caused, it has also been a beautiful thing to watch people helping others no matter who they are. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see all of these good deeds and efforts publicized for weeks, months and years…

Twenty-six in Review - Turning 27 - sheerheart.org

Time to take a look at twenty-six in review. There are only a handful of hours left of me being 26. Whoa, where has the time gone? This past year has been one of the best yet. From stepping out of my comfort zone to getting back into the blogging groove, it has been one productive year. In this post, I am going to share some of my favorites from this past year. 26 in Review Favorite Posts Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake Not For Sale Top 5 Friday:…

Book Review: Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane

Book Review: Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane - sheerheart.org

Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane happened to be the book that jumped out at me and demanded to be read first out of the eight books I included on my summer reading list. In last week’s Summer Bucket List post, I mentioned needing to do reviews on each of the eight, but saying I need to and actually doing it are two different things, as you all know. Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane 432 pages. Available on Amazon and at other book stores. (click here) To begin, Half…

8 Books To Read This Summer

8 Books to Read This Summer - sheerheart.org

Last night I sat down to try to figure out what the heck I am going to read this summer. You’re going to find only eight books on this list. There is the potential to read more than eight, but this list is realistic. Because I know there is a good chance I am going to find myself stuck in a Sackett book or one of the many Baldacci counterparts to the series I have already started. To begin, do you ever catch yourself buying a book solely because the…

May Favorites

May Favorites

Four days into June, I’m having a hard time remembering what I even did in May! But nonetheless, I did have some May Favorites to share with you. Favorite Book P.S. I just checked, and I am apparently three books ahead of schedule on my Goodreads Reading Challenge! Woohoo! Reading books like The Last Mile by David Baldacci, makes it pretty darn easy to read. As I have said before, Baldacci is a special author. Between his memorable, likable characters and the way he details each scene, his books are absorbing.…

April Favorites

April 2017 Favorties

Pssstttt it’s May. April ending on a Sunday and May beginning on a Monday is pretty darn sneaky. Driving to work I knew the date, but sure enough, the first chance I get to write the date down, I’m beginning to pen “April”. Never fails. April was yet another good one. A wedding, plenty of parties, family gatherings, good eats, good reading, kinda sums it up. But to sum it up further, I’m going to share some of my favorites from the month of April. Favorite Book To be fair, Jubal…

Challenge Completed.

Reading Challenge 2016

2016 has come and gone. Twenty sixteen brought me so much in way of faith, hope and love. Life takes you where you don’t think you need to go. But embrace the ride and find a way to hold on is how I approached this past year. One of the goals nearest to my heart in 2016 was the Goodreads’ Reading Challenge. After a hot start in 2016, I naturally succumbed to procrastination and went a couple of months without touching a single book. But not to fear, I was…

Down to the Last Minute

2015 Reading Challenge Update

Prior to my recent Fave Photo Friday: Edition No. 30 post, it had been a little while since I had last posted. But I do have some pretty valid reasons for my absence. For one, this time of year had me plenty busy helping my company with Adopt-A-Family, a Family Services Association event. For a tiny office of only 15 employees, we were able to help 3 families, 15 individuals, of which a whopping 10 were children under the age 11. I couldn’t be more proud of a group of…
