Simply Delicious is Simply AWESOME!

From the gorgeous cover that makes you open it to see what other beautiful pictures are going to be inside to the flat lay binding this book is Simply Amazing!
All of the recipes are the old time cooking of when I was a child and is exactly what I am served when I go to stay with my Amish Friends! My favourite recipe is the Mac & Cheese, submitted by none other than Sherry Gore herself.
The exerpts from issues of The Budget just make the book so real and heartwarming. It makes it seem like you are a part of the life of the people within the pages of recipes.

This is definitely a book I intend to buy NUMEROUS copies of and make my number one gifting item for people in my life!

I just was cleaning up Word Documents and seeing which book I would like to read next for Booksneeze and realized that I had never posted the review of:

Constantly Craving by Marilyn Meberg
I had a hard time getting engaged with this book. It did make one look at their life and the WANT for more. It helped me see where I get some of my cravings from, way to help me overcome some of these cravings and how to redirect others.
It helps you to see the relationship with God and how you perceive it and if your cravings are because of a lack of connect!
It was a good read once I was able to get into it.
Reflection and forethought are indeed brought forward in this book.

In terms of my memory, the one that seems to be failing me and I am only in my 36th year of life! What will I be like when I am 70 Lord willing I live to that age!

 It is funny what once you take for granted can become something of the past in such a split second. I was the one that people counted on to remember names, numbers, directions, just good old information. Since the motorcycle accident my short term memory just does not process the same and drudging items out of the long term memory can sometimes be a dubious task.

So as each day goes and I work on the items I am supposed to, to help learn new ways of doing things it humbles me to think of all the "things" I took for granted prior to this accident.

Like the fact that I never had to work to attain good grades, that skills came very naturally to me. That I could multi-multi I am left to cope with the grief over losing these such abilities and teaching myself new coping and managing strategies and skills. I look fine on the outside, albeit a little extra pudgy as to previous to the accident. People that didn't know how highly I functioned would see nothing wrong with my brain, aside of the forgetfulness and word finding at times. I however have to learn to live with a different brain than I once had. The Doctors keep telling me had I not been "a high functioning person" I probably would not even care or potentially notice the deficits I have.

Sometimes being the perfectionist has its benefits, sometimes it has its downfalls. I have not decided which it is for me yet, as I have been told that by way of my perfectionism and stubbornness that is the reason I have made the leaps and bounds I have in my recovery!

 I myself like to think it is my prayer's being answered!
