A nice little cozy read! This is book one in the series.

Hattie lives in FairAcres Home, a small retirement place for those able to still take care of themselves. Her friend Retta has added her name to the waiting list to move in there. Retta writes to Hattie asking her opinion of the place. Not wanting to influence Retta's decision, she starts to keep jottings of everyday life and occurrences at FairAcres.

And thus starts the journal that Hattie keeps. She has to write things down as she forgets them as I can attest that as we age, our memory often plays tricks on us.

She will make you laugh, cry and at other times, sit back and really look/reflect at your life. Hattie has a flair with words and poetry and has learned to appreciate the small things as well as life itself. She certainly gets a big kick out of eavesdropping on two fellow residents and their musings.

It is a charming story told by someone who has lived life and is still able to see beauty and love around her. She makes references to Our Lord and has a word or two for Him. I like that about her. lol If you are a Fannie Flagg fan, this is your kind of book. It is only 177 pages and is a fast, delightful read. I read it in one sitting and now will definitely look for the others in the series.
