#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Friday chatter

First, our winners for this week are Pamela Devereux and Peggy Casey.  Congratulations, both of you.

As always, the new contest begins on Monday.

Last night, Wendy and I attended a gem class at Wonders of the World–I had taken the class before, but I’m glad I took a review.  I learned more, just as I had hoped I would.  Wendy (my daughter), fell madly in love with a stone called lepidolite–she bought several samples, lovely lavender specimens.  Lepidolite is calming, among its other stellar qualities.  Sure is fun to share this enthusiasm with Wendy as well as my mom, who was a collector long before I started.

I’m listening to a new book by Gillian White, THE PLAGUE STONE.  It’s a suspense novel, and I love those, but it’s a little dark and I may switch to something cheerier.  :)  As I write this, new books are being downloaded–looking forward to Good Morning, America’s Robin Roberts’ memoir, EVERYBODY HAS SOMETHING.  I deeply admire this woman; she is so brave, facing her second battle with cancer, and somehow managing to remain upbeat.

ONCE AGAIN, THIS DARN COMPUTER HAS EATEN A PARAGRAPH.  SIGH.

Here’s wishing you the best weekend ever.

See you on Monday.

    Hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend! So waiting for new book!!

    Really enjoy reading about the stones, My husband & I collected for years, now just have to get them out of storage unit & just see what we found! Especially love some very large pieces we found in CO. He was the one who became interested first :wink: Then had several pieces made into jewlery for me… rings especially! Those I still wear with love ♥

      I’ve wondered the same thing concerning flu shots. I dutifully had mine–and I was sick for a month.

    It’s good to read when 3 generations get together to enjoy collecting stones. So many people no longer do those things.

    I agree with you on Robin Roberts book. If only I can get my Kindle away from my husband, I would have started to read it. He is getting one for his birthday.

    Enjoy your weekend!!

    I’m with you. Too many dark “listens” can be a downer. Something cheery sounds in order. :-D

    It’s always fun to share with others our interests, my best friend and I love browsing the antique resale stores and finding fun things. Have a great week.

    Hi Linda, and all i am still in a nursing home.It is Continental Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, i do not know how much longer i will be here or if i will be a permanent resident. I miss being able to be on here all the time, but it is hard for me to be on the computer, i am only able to be on it a little at a time. God bless all of you and i miss you all very much.
    All ways your friend,
    Norma
