What I did over my last summer weekend....

This weekend we went whitewater rafting with some friends. We had the greatest time! This was my fourth time rafting and I have to say it was one of the most adventurous. On the second rapid our boat (which held me, Pop Rocks, one of our friends, three guys from another group and our guide) got stuck in a hydraulic part of the river. I have been down this river before and “played” in the same hydraulic.
When you are on the river it isn’t exactly encouraging to hear your guide say, “This is about to get interesting.” In our case it meant we were getting stuck and the second time that another boat was going to go over us.

It was a fun weekend filled with laughter, adventure, fun, food, football, and most of all friendship. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and spending time with my friends.

What is one of your greatest memories of times with friends?

  1. That sounds like so much fun!! I spent several evenings this Thursday getting to know new friends, which was so much fun after a few months of not knowing anybody in my new town :)

  2. So fun! I have never been rafting before.

    I think I enjoy being with friends most over a nice quiet meal...catching up, hanging out...board games would be fun too. I know, I'm so adventurous! =p But really, doing anything is fun with friends.

  3. I love to play board games, so it is always a treat to have all the kids upstairs asleep and to be able to stay up late and play games with our friends.

  4. I haven't been rafting in over 10...15 years! Goodness, I need to get out more:) Good for you! We used to get together every Friday night with our best friend's family and have dinner and play board or card games. I miss those nights so much. We haven't made any friends here yet that we can do that with. One day!

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
