I finished a 5 ***** book this past week and although it made for quite a lot of melancholy it was an unforgettable book. It was fiction but in reality it really wasn't. I have never been one to be impressed by movie stars or any stars for that matter except the ones in the heavens but this story affected me deeply. My only explanation is that I was channeling their emotions at the time these events took place.....that's what it felt like as I am not a romantic at all.....pretty practical and down to earth although passionate about certain things. I would be very interested to know if this book had that effect on anyone else. If you have read it or plan to read it please let me know! Otherwise, I still highly recommend it.

Embrace Hygge (pronounced hoo-ga) and become happier with this definitive guide to the Danish philosophy of comfort, togetherness, and well-being.
Why are Danes the happiest people in the world? The answer, says Meik Wiking, CEO of the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, is Hygge. Loosely translated, Hygge—pronounced Hoo-ga—is a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. "Hygge is about an atmosphere and an experience," Wiking explains. "It is about being with the people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe."
Hygge is the sensation you get when you’re cuddled up on a sofa, in cozy socks under a soft throw, during a storm. It’s that feeling when you’re sharing comfort food and easy conversation with loved ones at a candlelit table. It is the warmth of morning light shining just right on a crisp blue-sky day.
The Little Book of Hygge introduces you to this cornerstone of Danish life, and offers advice and ideas on incorporating it into your own life, such as:
- Get comfy. Take a break.
- Be here now. Turn off the phones.
- Turn down the lights. Bring out the candles.
- Build relationships. Spend time with your tribe.
- Give yourself a break from the demands of healthy living. Cake is most definitely Hygge.
- Live life today, like there is no coffee tomorrow.

I would like to watch some Halloween movies but nothing really scary, violent or psycho! LOL! I think I'll Google the best Halloween movies for children! Please share what you are reading, watching and/or listening to. I'm trying to catch up with Daily Hope by listening to 2 podcasts a day and I'm still in Numbers in the Bible on Chapter 25.
