I recently was given a pre-release copy of a new book by Mary Osteen over at Owlhaven.net. I am going to review that book some time this week so I won’t go into it too much now. But getting the book made me visit her blog and that’s when, much to my surprise, I realized I’d read her blog before! I think it was the cute header graphic that reminded me I’d been there. I think it was in an optomistic burst of energy when I was determined to can my produce last year. But…about that…maybe this year?
Anyway, Mary is the mom of ten (yes. that’s what I said, TEN!) and she seems to be able to get out of bed and actually leave the house fully dressed on a consistent basis. While smiling! Much to the relief of exhausted mothers of one everywhere (or at least the ones sitting here on my couch), she confesses to a deep seated need for coffee. Thank heaven, or I’d feel completely inadequate.
But here’s the thing I really wanted to say: If you want to find someone with a ton of practical advice, a seemingly unending supply of sweet insight, and pretty great recipes, go visit her blog. It’s rich with good content and written in a light way that will make you smile while you scramble for a pen to jot down helpful notes and ideas.
