The Castle

My family has purchased an old Methodist church building for our new home. My daughter calls it the ‘tassle’ (castle) and now thinks that she is a princess (she’s 15 months old and KNOWS how this works!) Among a few small issues like not having a full bathroom when we moved in (there IS a shower now!) and living in a basement apartment that was originally meant to house classrooms (try fitting my parent’s king sized bed into a normal sized children’s Sunday school classroom, I dare you), is the most pressing matter of all…no internet connection as of yet.

I understand that this is not a life or death situation, having lived without many things more important to my welfare than internet in the past. However, for a writer with a blog and a lot of ideas, this is quite the blow to my schedule. Add in having only 1/3 of our vehicles in working condition and you have a dilemma! However, I am crafty and my computer lets me know when there are open wifi waves in the area so, to whoever I am leeching off of at the moment, I thank you! To everyone else, I am now off to paint another wall so, Happy December, Have a Blessed and WARM day!


A Note for Young Readers

Here is a little note for you from Claire Tworeck, who is currently working with Harper Collins Publishing House on a Children’s Christmas book idea, tentatively set for release winter of 2014. Enjoy, and have a Blessed Day!

Dear Young Readers,

Happy National Young Readers Week!

I wanted to share some of the pretty cool adventures I’ve been on recently. I’ve had the chance to fly on a magic carpet, help rescue a princess who was locked away in a castle, gone scuba diving and I’ve seen the most beautiful and colorful fish, walked in the moon, smelled and tasted the best chocolate cake in the world, met my favorite basketball players and fought an evil knight with a sword, yet I haven’t even left my house. I’ve had all of these wonderful adventures through books. Books are not just pages with words on them, held together by a binding and cover. They are adventures waiting for you. You don’t have to go on these adventures just once either, you can go on them many times as you want to.

So stop what you’re doing and go on an adventure!
