Time with Emma

We had the pleasure of watching our little granddaughter last week, while her mommy and daddy were in Texas. 

Here with my mom, reading stories together.
We had such fun reading new story books -- Little Ree, Blueberries for Sal, and The Maggie B, and of course, The Adventures of Peter Cottontail.

Emma also helped me with several cooking projects. We made strawberry muffins, blueberry pancakes, and animal crackers. She's a wonderful helper and doing a great job learning to cook! Must be from all those mud pies she's made!

Other activities: tea party, picnic on the fort, riding on papa's buggy, playing with the kittens, and even an art project or two with Aunt Abbey. We always enjoy our time with Emma. Looking forward to her next visit already!

Book Preview ~ Heart on the Line

Heart on the Line, by Karen Witemeyer

Grace Mallory is tired of running, of hiding. But when an old friend sends an after-hours telegraph transmission warning Grace that the man who has hunted her for nearly a year has discovered her location, she fears she has no choice. She can't let the villain she believes responsible for her father's death release his wrath in Harper's Station, the town that has sheltered her and blessed her with the dearest friends she's ever known.

Amos Bledsoe prefers bicycles to horses and private conversations over the telegraph wire to social gatherings with young ladies who see him as nothing more than an oddity. His telegraph companion, the mysterious Miss G, listens eagerly to his ramblings every night and delights him with tales all her own. For months, their friendship--dare he believe, courtship?--has fed his hope that he has finally found the woman God intended for him. Yet when he takes the next step to meet her in person, he discovers her life is in peril, and Amos must decide if he can shed the cocoon of his quiet nature to become the hero Grace requires. Buy the book HERE.
