KarmelI also have enjoyed discovering all sorts of critters with Amy on our walks. This week we've seen the following:
This baby salamander was so cute.
I laid my ring down next to him for some size reference.
This funny toad was pretty lazy and let us just take pictures of him.
I can't believe I was brave enough to take this picture. I got pretty close but also used my zoom feature. The little baby spiders on it's back really creeped me out!
I've also read two books the past week....
I bought Zandra and Tamu's book, Diary of Two Mad Black Mormons, because I really enjoyed listening to them speak at Time Out for Women. These women are so funny. And witty. There is truth and love throughout the book. BUT - I couldn't relate to much of it. The culture didn't translate to me. I'm glad I read it. But I'm not sure I loved it. It was OK.
I also read Matt Walsh's debut book The Unholy Trinity: Blocking the Left's Assault on Life, Marriage, and Gender. Matt Walsh is a gifted writer who is conservative and Christian. I've been reading his blog posts for about 3 years and love his well thought out arguments and have agreed with most of what he writes. He walks the walk and talks the talk - which is amazing. I enjoyed his book. I'm sure there are probably a LOT of people who won't like him or his book - but when you're brave enough to speak the truth, you are bound to have enemies....
