Me, Right Now

Me Right Now

Hello, all. Just thought I’d stop by to let you all know what I’m up to.

Not much.

I’ve been reading a thickish book and it’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would (Summer of Night). It’s good but it’s slowing me down and my other reading is taking a backseat because of it. There are so many books I want to get to right now.

Also, I’m adjusting to having a college aged kid. He works a ton of hours and when he is off, he goes to school so we hardly see him. I was horrified to learn that he might have to work on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving!!! Our day of PJs is in jeopardy. It’s like a very different world right now and it’s weird.

I find myself in this pensive mood lately. Quiet. Thoughtful. Pensive. Everything seems to have meaning to me. It’s a tad exhausting to be thinking all the time but I’ve been doing it. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just THAT time of year. It’s not a bad place to be in but time slips away from me and before I know it, another week has passed.

And, for whatever reason, I’ve lost all craving for meat. I seem to only want vegetables. This happened to me in my 20s and that led to a vegetarian, sometimes vegan diet for a good three years. Will it happen again? I wonder if it has to do with my iron levels being normal now.

That’s basically it. Things are good and quiet but different. How about you? What is going on with you right now?

This Week Slipped Away From Me


Lately, I’ve been feeling a little like this guy but I’ve started physical therapy and I am beginning to return to the land of the living. This is all a result of that fall I took months ago or at least that is what I think. The doctors, not so much.

What’s really silly is that I am to avoid certain positions and one of them is a position that involves holding my Kindle. So, the book that I am reading, Summer of Night is not all that enjoyable to read when propped up in an awkward position.  Sigh.

But I’m here and looking forward to the weekend. I need to pick up a few more decorations and I feel the need to make stew or something equally good.

How have you been? I’ve been bad with blog reading this week because reading in general is tough for me at the moment but I am going to take today and tomorrow to catch-up.
