Days are warm yet cool nights and chilly mornings remind us FALL IS COMIN'. Fireplace lit, Pumpkin Spice is back and there's an autumn wreath on the front door. BLANKETS are calling me! What's your routine to "Greet The Day?" Sitting on the patio with my daily read, watching the birds at the feeders, hot beverage at my side, and a cozy blanket across my lap that's my "Good Morning World" routine! 
Denali Earth Spirit Blanket
                                Earth Spirit Blanket Style #161914
Do you have a favorite blanket you reach for when you're cold, under the weather, or just fighting the blues? Does wrapping up in it bring back special memories? Maybe it was handmade and a cherished gift or perhaps something you picked up while traveling and it reminds you of a favorite spot or time in your life. I love blankets! If it's soft, warm, cozy, easy care, and great looking then it's just my cup of tea!

WILDFIRES SPREAD ACROSS THE WEST
WILDFIRES SPREAD ACROSS THE WEST

September 12, 2020

THE ALARMING PHOTOGRAPHS and videos of the wildfires burning in our western states are jaw-dropping and the stories accompanying them are heart-wrenching. In the summer of 1965 10,000 teen girls gathered in Farragut, Idaho for the Girl Scout Roundup, my sister-in-law and I among them. Besides camping, trading potlatches and attending joyous campfires, we planted trees, thousands of them, tiny evergreen seedlings. Today, 55 years later, are those trees still living, are they threatened? I searched online and discovered that fires are burning in that region. It isn't the first time.

OutWest Shop's Book Guides Wendy and Bobbi Jean hand selected four titles about fires in the West. Bobbi Jean, who always reads with a cup of coffee at the ready, suggests you try a bag of Muertos Coffee from a company founded by California firefighters. For each bag sold, they donate back to Individuals in Need, Line of Duty Deaths and Victims of Fire.

RENDEZVOUS WITH A WRITER: WHAT HAPPENED TODAY IN THE WEST?

September 11, 2020

WHAT HAPPENED TODAY IN THE WEST? 
Puzzled? An Act for the Admission of the State of California into the Union was signed into law by President Millard Fillmore on September 9, 1850. California became our 31st state, and entered as a free state. What's the state's motto? HInt - it means "I found it." EUREKA! I found titles just for you. Explore its rich history and culture in these four books. Explore the history of the landscape, of independent spirited women who came and stayed in California, the quilts that made the journey from distant points or where crafted there, and the crazy American pop culture that beckoned to tourists and residents alike. Consider these titles a part of my "love letter" to a state I called home for over 25 years. ---Book Guide Bobbi Jean
