On the mend!

I must say, I enjoyed my rest cure.  The dog and kitty kept me company, while I read (and read)–slept–and then read some more!  And when I was too bleary-eyed to read, I listened.  :)  I also washed down copious amounts of Tropical Hibiscus, my favorite tea, but I think I’ve already told you that….

Recent favorite reads:

In fiction: “Home”, “Gilead” and “Lila” by Marilynn Robinson.  The sheer beauty of this author’s writing keeps me totally engaged, and the quirky characters fascinate me.  No wonder she received the coveted Pulitzer Prize for “Gilead”.  She is flat-out good.

In nonfiction: “Visualization for Weight Loss”, by Jon Gabriel.  (WOW.  If you only read one book in your life about succeeding at weight loss, or just about anything else, it ought to be this one.  I’m already feeling the difference!)  “Goddesses Never Age”, by Christiane Northup, M.D.–incredible advice on health and well-being.  I’ve already downloaded (into my trusty Kindle) a book Dr. N. recommends: “Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts: Using the Power of Pleasure to Have Your Way with the World”, by Regena Thomashauer.  (I hope my mother doesn’t read the blog today.  :))

Hi, Mom.  :)

Well, I’m on the homestretch with jury duty.  I have to call in tonight, but it’s unlikely I’ll be summoned, as the courts here are not in session on Friday.  Here’s one of several things I’ve learned from this process: it’s a lot of work being available for something.  I honestly think it’s easier just to go ahead and do it.

Please note: I have not forgotten that I’m supposed to announce our weekly winners today.  Check back in an hour or two.  :)

    It sounds like you’re feeling better. Continue to get lots of rest, so you don’t relapse. I m 71, so it’s the Mother in me…I can’t help myself. I have loved your books from the beginning!!
