Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

 Smoke. Everything about it had always meant being away to her, so now that she was safe at home, it was a smell that didn't track.
 But it was smoke she smelled--green, campfire smoke--tugging at her consciousness, telling her to wake up, wake up, wake up!

  2. I was reading about this book earlier today and it caught my interest. I am definitely interested in reading more. Wildfires are a reality near where I live and one of my biggest fears.

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.


Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
