This Week’s Sketchy Blog

Have you ever had one of those weeks?  :)  I’m not saying this past week was bad, because it certainly wasn’t.  It was just crazy-busy.

On Sunday, niece Angela and her beau, Taylor, prepared a wonderful family feast out at the lake house.  We had SO much fun.

On Monday, my laptop died–meet my new one–and though I managed a few blogs on another computer, I’m essentially a creature of habit and I had a hard time concentrating.  I wrote in my office, but that computer isn’t online, for obvious reasons. 

Tuesday we said good-bye to Debbie and Steven, close friends visiting from Colorado Springs, and Wednesday was full of drama, and yesterday we celebrated a family birthday with lunch at Boston Pizza.

Phew.  Back to work for me, big-time.  As my old daddy used to say, I’ve had about all the fun I can stand.  :)

Enjoying my Nook: I just read “Orange is the New Black”, a memoir about a woman who goes to prison for a year for a ten-year-old (and undeniably stupid) mistake.  It was fascinating, and enlightening.  Now I’m into “The Memory Palace”, another memoir, this one about growing up with a mother suffering from a severe mental illness–really tugs at the heart.  Human resilience is a truly amazing thing.  (Thanks for being so normal, Mom. Books like this always make me grateful for the parents, siblings and childhood I was blessed with.)

That’s the news from my kitchen table.  Have a great weekend.

Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day, as the cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months.
