To some of us what day it is doesn’t even matter. And to those of you that are still working out there. I am sure you are ready for your weekend. I am also sure that most wish they were working. I can’t even imagine what some are going through with one or both breadwinners not working. And the bills piling up. Children at home with no school. When I look at things with that perspective it makes it seems like I have it pretty darn easy. I am retired getting money monthly through SS. The only thing disrupted in my life is that I can’t see my Dr. and I can’t see my son and granddaughter. It makes for a pretty lonely life. But it’s not the end of the world. I am grateful.

It’s cloudy and raining today. I think there is rain the forecast off and on all weekend. I hope to get outside and do the work I need to do with the mulch I bought. I know I have been saying that for days. But this has not been a good week for me. I have had a few days where my tummy has not been good. And I need to stay close to the bathroom. And I have had a lot of pain and cramping. I will get it done.

My reading slump seems to have passed finally. I found a book from a thrift store or book sale laying around here. I started it and finished it in a few days. And then realized it is a trilogy. So I went to Amazon yesterday and ordered the other two for my kindle. I am about halfway through the second book. I will probably get through the series this weekend. Hopefully, I will be able to find something else around here. I have a lot of choices. I have a lot of books on my kindle as well. So there is no shortage.

I am really enjoying my houseplants. They all seem to be doing so well. I would like to get more. But I am out of room unless I get a plant stand and get rid of a piece of furniture I already have. I could hang some up. But not sure I want to put anything on the walls. I sure love looking at the plants and watching them grow. My snake plant is getting so big. I need to re-pot it. There are probably 3-4 plants in that pot alone. I need pots and soil.

I may treat myself to dinner out tonight. 3 of our local restaurants do carry-out and delivery right now. I will decide what I want later on this afternoon or early evening. I am sure they will be busy on a Friday. I just don’t want to cook and want something different.

This is a pretty boring blah day. Which is good I guess. I am going to stop here and get comfy with the dog and my book. I will be back in a day or so.

Hope you get to feeling better real soon.  I get all my books on my Kindle Fire. I subscribe to Kindle Unlimited. It’s like $10.70 a month and well worth it for me. It seemed every time I read a free book there was a sequel or more that followed but that cost $2-$6 each. It started adding up and I found that most the books I was paying for was on Kindle Unlimited. I love it. I don’t read paperback/ hardback books anymore.

What  are you reading?

April 25, 2020

GypsyWynd  I am currently reading the second book in a trilogy by the author Michelle Gagnon. #1 No escape is the actual first one but it is basically the intro to the series and only 50 pages.  So #1 is really “Don’t Turn Around” this book started the whole thing for me. It got me out of my reading slump. I finished that on Wednesday and moved on to # 2 “Don’t look Now”. Which I finished late last night. And then started # 3 “Don’t Let Go”.  I really want to just drop everything and read this last book. This is a Young Adult series. Which does not matter to me. It has a lot of action in it. It is really keeping my attention. The author does have some adult books as well. I will be checking into those as well.  This series deals with kids that were in the foster system and either aged out or just left their situations to live on the streets.

Hope you feel better soon.  I have a backlog of books loaded on my Kindle that I need to read.  Right now, I am in an organizing mood.  Trying to stop my procrastinating and tackle the things I keep saying “I will do tomorrow.”  Today is my tomorrow. 😊
