No menu: Week 45

There wont be a menu this week. I know this is kinda of late to post.

We lost my Grandpa last Saturday night. He went home to live with our heavenly father. I miss him very much, but I'm sure he is having the most amazing time with his family that has gone before him.

We've spent a lot of time this last week remembering my grandpa and sharing stories and pictures. I've loved hearing about my grandpa's smiling face and his giving heart. He was a great man, and I've only began to touch the surface of who he was.

I know that one of my fondest memories was how he used to call me Sarai (Sar-ee-eye). I loved it so much I adopted it as my pen name.

So, in closing I will say this. I miss my grandpa very much, but I will see him again in heaven one day.

For those of you who would like to share your stories and photos about Wendell Baker, please join us on Facebook by following this link.

A most amazing rendering of my grandpa by
my artist sister Drew.


  1. It's me your annoying friend Derek (posting anonymous..?). I am truly sorry for your family's loss, Sara. I hope that things are otherwise well with you and yours. Seems I'd be pretty content passing on with that bus load of Grandchildren to carry on my family name. Just a thought; maybe you could write him into one of you novels, it would be a way to not only create a deep, memorable character but also act as a pathway to learning more about who he was. Awesome blog, ttyl. P.S. Drew is an amazing artist, wish I had half that talent when I was younger.

    1. Thanks Derek. I never thought about writing my grandpa into a story, but that is a great idea. I've already learned so much about him over the last two weeks, its just amazing.
      Drew has an amazing talent, and she keeps getting better and better. you should see some of the other stuff she's been working on, stunning.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
