Time

This is a year of change for me. There are so many new, different, and maybe even unknown changes afoot, and combining all that makes for a busy life.

Some of these changes are purposely a part of my own creation. I’ve resolved to read more – a lot more – and my Kindle bookshelf holds nearly 400 books ready for my eager brain. I’m a big proponent of knowledge, no matter the subject. And, naturally, I’ll continue to share my reviews of the most memorable books.

I’ve been honored to read and review others’ books. In fact, I was sought out particularly by Cathy Kennedy to review her “Meeting of the Mustangs,” which you can read my review HERE ON GOODREADS. It’s a sweet young adult novel that I believe many of any age would like.

Currently, I started reading “Grounded” by Kate Forest. Again, she and her publicist contacted me to ask for a Read and Review.  I’m honored, and I anticipate my review will be written and done sometime in the next week.

I’m also looking forward to digging out my dad’s books on World War II. They are so old that they each cost less than a dollar. I found one for fifty cents. Wow.

Recently, we spent time away on vacation, and the change in scenery and weather was fabulous – and much, much needed. The morning sunrises were breathtaking, and once, when I took the dogs out at 4 a.m., the constellations were as clear as anything you could see out in the country without a speck of white light. We really needed that time away.

Part of this change included a very non-traditional Thanksgiving. We roasted a small Butterball turkey breast, steamed some butter beans, whipped up some creamy mashed potatoes, and ended with cherry Jell-O and canned whipped cream. I could have done without the canned whipped cream (bleh!), but I didn’t have the resources to have fresh.

Some of the change are coming out of left field.  I’m vacillating on the status of a friendship of many years.  My friend seems to have taken up with texting me every day, but not with “HI! Here’s what I’ve been up to . . .” but, rather, with multi-paragraph snippets of the “news,” sports scores, and unfunny editorials written in a voice reminiscent of the lame style you would find on a paper placemat at an out-of-the-way diner.  I’ve gently said I can find my own news topics, please get over your candidate not winning, and how are you doing?  Nope, they still come with a “Ting! Ting!” text alert.  Ugh.  I need to find the “unsubscribe” button on those texts.  I want to remain friends, but holy moly!

And here we are – the last day of November. It seems that summer was just here, and now the Holidays are inching forward. And before you know it, it will be 2017.

As fast as time is racing, I’m resolved to live in the day and savor each hour as best as I can.
