The Outlander by Gil Adamson

I just finished reading this book. I enjoyed this book enough to share it with you. The title was strange I thought, with the series of books called Outlander that are wildly popular and on TV now. It was interesting story and good to read...and hard to put down.

This book is written by a woman, Gil Adamson.

I read quite a lot, and don't often share the books with you. I give this one 2 thumbs up and 5 stars.

A Preview of the book-
In 1903 a mysterious young woman flees alone across the West, one heart-pounding step ahead of the law. At nineteen, Mary Boulton has just become a widow—and her husband's killer. As bloodhounds track her frantic race toward the mountains, she is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that her two ruthless brothers-in-law are in pursuit, determined to avenge their younger brother's death. Responding to little more than the primitive fight for life, the widow retreats ever deeper into the wilderness—and into the wilds of her own mind—encountering an unforgettable cast of eccentrics along the way.

Raining Today

from Pinterest
The University of Oregon is my school, so I couldn't resist this pic of the football stadium to show you.  The long, dry weather has finally changed to rain. It rained about 2 1/2" over a few days, here on the farm. This weather will slow down the wildfires around us. 

This rain may start the fall mushroom crop. I look forward to hunting and collecting the Chanterelle mushroom. This mushroom is very good fresh, and I dry them to use throughout the year.

Vintage Enamelware Again

I would think with all my junking, flea markets, antique store and fairs....that I would have found 2 plates like this one. I did get a mug about two years ago. The plates are a hard find, I am wanting 2 10" floral plates...meanwhile I have 2 plastic plates to use. I don't want to use any glass in Prairie Flower, rough rides do break things. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Mini Electric Fireplace

from Juli Thorson

One of the Girl Camping women, Juli Thorson, shared her mini fireplace electric heater on facebook. It is a tiny fireplace that puts out enough heater for a small vintage travel trailer. It sits on the kitchen stove, decorated as you wish. They cost about $50 on-line. I would like to get one to use in Prairie Flower, when I have electricity in the fall, or cold spring. I imagine that sleeping with this glowing would be terrific. Cute!!

Enamelware Bowl

Look at this great vintage bowl, it is 9" in diameter. The great thing is that it is perfect for Prairie Flower, my vintage 1963 Aloha trailer.
