I’m so far behind on keeping this page of my blog up to date. This and Meet My Family needs serious work. Maybe I should put one of my books down and work on it.

Right now I am reading 3 books. One book book, My Life in Parisby Julia Child, The Partner by John Grisham, this is on my iPad and 50 Shades of Grayby E L James. This is an audiobook.

I love the book book when I’m outside in the mornings, having my coffee and croissant!. Ha! Of course it has to be a croissant when reading about my beloved Julia Child. This book was written by Julia and her nephew Alex Prud’homme. This book was before the Julia and Julie hype a few years ago. Which, don’t get me wrong, I loved the Julia and Julie blog/book/movie. Anything to do with my beloved Julia, I’m there. My Life in France is more about her life and what lead her to cooking school, the French way of cooking and her school she helped start. This book also goes more into her life before cooking, and what a life it was.

About three years ago Sarah Palin came out with her book Going Rogue Do you remember? The only reason I bring this up, is Palin’s book was released in the dead of winter. Palin is from my neck of the woods and she did a lot of book signings in my area. Palin was scheduled for a book signing lets say on a Monday. People started lining up on Saturday before. They lined up and slept in zero degree weather, on the sidewalk, waiting for a chance to have Sarah Palin sign their book. I could not imagine the love and admiration they must have felt for Palin to sit and sleep on a cold sidewalk for days, just to have her sign their book. Of course the question became “Who would you sit on a freezing sidewalk for a week end for?. After much deliberation and discussion my answer had to be Julia. Julia Child is the only person I could come up with that I would do that for. Maybe Regis Philben, but definetly Julia.


The book is scattered with pictures, mostly taken by her husband Paul. Julia did everything in her life with a certain amount of joy and spirit. This book is no exception.
