Sunday Salon ~ moving takes time

The two windows in the center, just above the tree (and the van/bus) are mine.  Count down from the tenth floor (10-9-8-7-6) to my windows on the corner of the sixth floor.  On the left is my bedroom, on the right is my living room, and my kitchen window is around the corner, facing the street, but hidden in the indented part of the building.  I overlook the connecting portion between the two buildings of the Crown Center.

I finally have wi-fi in my new apartment, so I can get back to blogging now!  I'm still unpacking boxes, of course, but it looks like home now.  It's almost July, and the weeks of June have been filled with unpacking, one box after another.  Eventually, I'll show you more of my new place than the windows above the trees.


New books — yes, I can see it may not be a good thing that Barnes and Noble is only a block away.  And because it's just across the parking lot from my new grocery store, I can't really avoid it, can I?  Of course not!

We Make the Road by Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation, and Activation ~ by Brian D. McLaren, 2014
Explore what a difference an honest, living, growing faith can make in our world today, and create a life-changing learning community.  The readings offer insightful reflections and transformative practices to guide an individual or a group of friends through a year of interactive learning and personal growth.
The Voice Bible ~ published by Thomas Nelson, 2012
This is a faithful dynamic equivalent translation that reads like a story.  It invites readers to enter into the whole story.  It recaptures the passion, grit, humor, and beauty that is often lost in the translation process.  The result is a retelling of the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works, while remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscripts.
Bloggers gather in the Sunday Salon — at separate computers in different time zones — to talk about our lives and our reading.

My house goes on the market tomorrow. So i'm right behind you!!
I always keep a faith-based book going and the Walk book looks like one I will definitely have to read! And add to my inventory. :)

Good luck in your new home!
