Summer Reading

I hope you are all enjoying
the summer!

I'm enjoying my "Blogging Break"
and getting things caught up 
around the farm
inside and out and I'm even 
getting time to do some reading.

Here's a book I just finished that I thought
some of you might enjoy...
it's called 
Heart To Heart / Hand In Paw

This is a wonderful true story 
about an animal loving woman in her 40's
(Peggy's mother)
who moves to the woods of Vermont with her husband to build a log home and 
live off the land.

My kind of story!

However things don't always go
as planned and life isn't always easy.
 Peggy made me laugh and cry.
Through it all you come away with 
a deeper sense of how animals
are more than just our pets.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book
and it made me appreciate
how fortunate we are here
in our cozy little farmhouse
in the country.

is also the author of
Dieting With My Dog.
 If you're looking for some
good summer reading I hope 
you'll consider this one.

Have a wonderful week!

That looks like a good recommendation. The cover alone is a reason that I make pick it up.

Hello, I was rummaging through links on Goose Hill Farm, and “Snooks” profile picture caught my eye. Your blog is listed as one of the sites “Snooks” has joined. I love cottage life – so I just had to pop over and take a look at your blog. Very nice.

I am just dropping by my dear blogging friends to take a peek and also wrote a quick post. I have taken time out. Summer around the quinta is a busy time for me.
I am going to try to buy the book..
I cannot tell you how my 4 dogs have changed my life. I went through a very bad patch some 14 years ago.. and when i got my first little bitch..she lit up my whole life. Now i have her son, and grandsons.. I love them and they love me in return.
This is a nice post Maura. I can imagine you all busy and enjoying the sunshine around your lovely farm.
Enjoy the rest of summer.. we will be meeting again.
best wishes to you and your family

Hi Maura. I hope you check your blog from time to time, but I must have missed this one when you wrote it. My daughter and I are always recommending books to each other and, especially dog stories, so will tell her and get this one myself. Now let's get down to the fun stuff. I so hope you are still enjoying your time off and accomplishing things around the farm. Just want to say hi and hope everything is well in your part of the world..Happy Wednesday..Judy
