Birthdays and books.

Yesterday we had an elderly lady over for dinner because her 80th birthday was last week. Mom gave her a birthday gift of Kidney/bladder tincture treatment. Kind of an odd birthday gift, but I guess if it made her happy.... and at that age most people probably could use that kind of gift, anyway!

I had a dentist appointment today, and I am glad to report that I have no cavities. I celebrated by eating a piece of chocolate. Ha ha! I am grateful for my healthy teeth, but I have a premonition that my love of chocolate will someday, perhaps, catch up to them.... but until then, vive la chocolate!

Today's book list:
Nathan J. Stone's "Names of God", I've really been enjoying it, and I highly recommend it. I just finished the chapter about "Adonai".
"Beginning German", copyright 1906. For some reason, the German language just really turned me off, so I decided not to finish it. Maybe I will learn enough to translate tombstone inscriptions, but that can wait until the summer.
"How I know God answers prayer", by Rosalind Goforth. I believe the story of the Goforths is still fairly well known- they were missionaries to China during the boxer rebellion. This book by Mrs. Goforth is all about answered prayers in her life.
"Words you thought you knew." by Jenna Glatzer. Kind of like a dictionary to help people better understand the words they use, and to explain how those words are often mis-used.
"Word origins and their romantic stories." So far I've only read the first two chapters, and I haven't gotten to any romantic stories yet. I did learn about how our alphabet was formed- very interesting.
