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.
