At 288 pages Carnegie's Maid is a quick read, perfect for a lazy afternoon. Once I started I couldn't put it down. This book is about Clara Kelley who is an Irish immigrant. She arrives in Pittsburgh to find work so she can send money back home to her family. Clara is mistaken for a girl who was experienced to come work as a lady's maid. Clara takes on the missing girls identity and takes on the job of lady's maid for Mrs. Carnegie, Andrew Carnegie's mother.

2017-2018 School Lunches 14-30

Squeee, I am so so far behind on lunch posts. I got a new phone. Not really by choice. My last one died. Blah. I don't like new things. I got into a pretty good habit of taking pictures on my phone and posting them on here from there. Problem is, I can't figure out how to do that on this new phone. So, I have been packing lunches and taking pictures, I just now have to transfer them onto my laptop (that is legit old) and post them from there. So  here we are, behind but here. Some of these lunches I only got a picture of one while the others were thrown into lunch bags. But whatever works.
I hope that you all are having a great school year!

2017-2018 School Lunches 1-13

School lunches have been really random this year, a little bit of this and that. Whatever anyone wants to pack etc. But here are some pictures, many are off of my very old phone that takes the worst pictures so I apologize for the quality.

The Thermos containers in the back have ravioli and red sauce in them.
The mason jars in front have carrots, cucumber, grapes, and plums.
The ravioli were frozen. I heated them in my Instant Pot on HP, 3 minutes. There was about a cup of water in the pot, the Ravioli were in a steamer basket.

Peasread: Unraveling

Review for book one in this series can be found HERE.

I had a very hard time reading this book. I just wanted so badly for it to be better than the first book. It wasn't. So much potential with a cool concept and story. Unique "good vs evil" story. We start off with El as Queen. You can read the summary below. The book is not a good standalone book, even with having already read the first book this was confusing at times. Flashbacks/memories, moving through stories of different characters. The book didn't flow well. Sometimes memories were confusing because it wasn't easy to tell that it was a memory.

Peasread: Praying For Girls

It seems maybe silly to have a book on how to pray for our kids because prayer is just talking to God, right? Of course it is. We walk with Him, talk with Him, tell Him about our day, cry out about injustices, and ask for healing, blessings, and His wisdom. We use prayer as a form of worship and as a step of faith, right? That's great I think. It's simple, but it also isn't. Praying For Girls by Teri Lynne Underwood helps us focus those prayers. 
There is no formula that will make our prayers heard more over others, it's not about that at all. God hears us and sees our hearts. This book is about effective and fervent prayers though, well thought out prayers, and prayers that focus on the needs of our kids. The book focuses on five areas of every girl's life- her identity, her heart, mind, relationships, and purpose. Everyone needs prayer in these areas don't they? There are prayers that scripture based in this book. Normally I don't like reading a prayer, but I like these as prompts, and what else would line up with God's will more than praying His very words for our girls? These small prayers can be a start of a longer prayer that is specific to the needs and hearts of our girls.
