Life: Summer is flying by! Thanks to the USPS I learned my driver’s license has expired. I had no idea. I seriously thought I had just been there last year. Anyway I dashed out to get it renewed and paid quite a hefty late fee. I greatly appreciated the postcard letting me know it had expired, but a postcard alerting me to the impending expiration would have been even nicer. Our friend had surgery again on Monday and another friend was put in a nursing facility so she can recover from pneumonia. She also has to decide if she is willing to allow a biopsy for cancer. She is very stubborn and very active and would prefer not to know and live in the moment. The weather here remains frightfully hot and humid the storms never seem to bring any relief.
Family Update: Finally my son had his senior pictures taken. The rain held off and the sun even made a brief appearance. I look forward to seeing the proofs. DH took this past week off, so it was a lot of fun having him home with us. We began another painting project. We decided since the kitchen hallway, and laundry room were freshly painted why not repaint the living room and family room? The only hitch is that none of us even remotely enjoy painting. I have heard people describe painting as calming, meditative, and soothing, yet none of us have yet to find those feelings when painting. My least favourite part is having my house turned upside down. I have never functioned well in clutter and wish we would have begun this project we DH’s vacation did. Hindsight is 20/20.
Saturday Night: I shall not lie, I watched DVDs of Jeeves and Wooster while my husband and twins started painting. In my defense, the last two days were dreadful for me and laughter is the best medicine, right?
Read and Reviewed: As usual there were books I had hoped to read but did not, overall I read some truly exceptional books and hope people will take time to look at them. I read and reviewed 11 books which totaled 3,752 pages. Do not want to wait until Monday to see the entire list? They are all up and as usual I love comments.
So what will I be reading? I am reading Everything Lovely, Effortless, Safe by Jenny Hollowell.
Happy Reading and please feel free to leave comments or suggestions.
