Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon

In Hope Harbor, by Irene Hannon, Michael Hunter is looking for himself. After taking a leave of absence from his job, he travels across the country to Hope Harbor, Oregon. As soon as he arrives in Hope Harbor, strange events seem to happen that are too much to be brushed off as a coincidence. Michael begin to see that maybe God really does have a different plan for his life.

Tracy Campbell is back home in Hope Harbor trying to help her uncle with his cranberry farm that is floundering. Tracy recruits the newcomer, Micheal to help her with a project that is near and dear to her heart. Could this be the beginning of a change of heart for both of them?

If you like predictable Christian romance this book is the book for you. After the first chapter, I was pretty sure that I knew what would happen at the end. Yet, I didn't really want to stop reading the book or skipping ahead to find out what happened at the end. Instead, I wanted to keep reading it to make sure I was right. So, did I love this book? Not really. But, there must have been something engaging in the story to make me keep reading. I think that there was too much fluffy romantic language that was rather unnecessary to the story overall. But, the story of grace, forgiveness and reconciliation is one everyone should hear.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.
