A Short Post

I'm back....sort of. I still don't have the reading spark BUT I am slowly making my way through Diane Chamberlain's The Courage Tree....which is pretty good. I am reading at a very slow pace. Which is fine, actually...I have all the time in the world, now that I have not been bringing any more books into the house. I have not received any books at all, since January. That has given me a kind of "peace"....I felt so panicked many books, not enough time. Since the New Year, I have sat back and relaxed, and realized that I was making reading more of a chore than an enjoyment. I felt stressed to read read read, then review review review, that it took the fun out of reading AND my blog. So! I am back, but at a slower pace.

Other BIG husband and I were finally able to achieve a huge dream of ours...we bought a condo at the beach! It is not on the beach, but is on the Intercoastal Waterway, in Little River, SC. We found a place that we fell in love with, and everything else seemed to fall into place. Our closing was on 3/31, so we have enjoyed a couple of weekends down there already. We are going back Easter weekend, and I can't wait!

What's been going on with everyone else????

Missy!!!! I've missed you!

I read "The Courage Tree" when it first came out and really liked it!

That is awesome about your new condo!! You'll have to post some pictures sometime.

It is so good to hear from you again. Glad everything is well.

Hi Missy,

Congratulations on the condo, sounds like the perfect relaxing location and I am glad to hear you have already enjoyed it and plans for the future also.

I miss all your memoir recommendations, it is my goal to read some and give you the recommendation, lol.

Life has been rough, but I won't give you any bad news.

I like your little pop in's even it is once or month or so.

Glad your doing well.

Love the new look here! Also, I think it's wonderful news about the condo! You will have such a nice time being by the water.

Also, don't fret about the lack of reading spark. It happens to all of us sometimes. I hope that you are back to normal soon.
