Country Living at its Best…

There is a great little place out in the country, just down the road and over the tracks. 

 You will be able to pick up an assortment of fresh veggies and seasonal fruits. 

During early spring you can even head out into the strawberry fields. 

You will be able to pick your own berries until your heart is content. 

After a morning of picking strawberries under the big Blue Texas Sky you will have worked up an appetite.    

You can stop into the smokehouse and pick up a quick bite to eat.

 Then you will want to cop a squat under the big live oak and enjoy your paper wrapped BBQ sandwich and cold drink. 

 All in all a day at Frobergs Vegetable and Fruit Farm is a day well spent.

Book Review: Divine Appointments

About this Book

Josie Brooks, at the age of 47, thought she was leading an enviable single life. A successful consultant, she calls her own shots, goes where the money is, and never needs to compromise. But her precisely managed world begins to falter during a Chicago contract when an economic downturn, a bleeding heart boss, and the loyalty and kindness between endangered employees ding her coat of armor.

The Up Side:  Charlene Ann Baumbich has captured the unique personalities of each of her characters in a way that made me feel as though I had known them for years.  I especially liked Josie Brooks.  I was able to relate to her drive to be successful and in control, until the events of life are no longer controllable.  I believe that the people and events in our life are more than consequences they are divine appointments.

The Downside:  I never really understood the need for the sidebar writing tangent of the character Marsha who was dealing with life’s roller coaster ride of divorce.  The character names were bizarre and hard to pronounce and I found myself just skipping over these unnecessay page fillers. The book was complete with out the distraction.

Divine Appointments: All in all a good read!

“I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.
