Archive for December, 2013


I haven’t read anything of substance for two weeks (Food magazines and newspapers only). That included all my book blogs so I had over 300 posts to go through yesterday. The prior Sunday I was finishing up my family’s Christmas and packing for my mom’s. This week was all about Thanksgiving and having ten people in the house for several days.

I sat down yesterday to plow through and got bogged down after reading 100 posts and today and tomorrow is all about finishing things up for my mom as she has surgery this week….

So I have decided that I will forgive myself and let things go. I will be spending most of December here in Oregon to help my mom recover and things are just going to be different and that is okay.

And Thanksgiving was wonderful – we had 6 young people in the house: 1 18 year old, 4 20 year-olds, and a 24 year old. Wow do I feel old as Eldest is now 24. Their energy was incredible – they were polite, helpful, intelligent, good conversationalists, and most of them were readers. So there was lots of sitting around with noses in books – the best of all scenarios.

Happy Reading!
