OK, so I gave up on a book.  I shall not mention any names.  It was pretty good, just fine, but I got self righteous or something.  I might give it a try again later.  Remembered that I was on page 96.  Not even a fully fledged try.

Now I'm reading The Abyssinian Proof by Jenny White.  Only on the third chapter, but thankfully, my new affinity for crime novels assures me that I might finish it.

Of course there are other books being followed, but I'll stick to the fiction.  When more books get finished, then I might mention them.  If you're lucky.

I've decided that I like Facebook again, so this blog might get ignored.  Oh, to comment, Kat, all one has to do is select a communication type, you know, like gmail or whatever.  Please forgive that I don't have the language for computer savviness.  It reminds me of Dr. Seuss, when he writes, "I don't know, go ask your Dad."

May everyone enjoy a lovely week, with kindness and excellent teas.

Sweet Tooth was actually really great according to my own self, and I really thought that it was fascinating, even with a certain uncertain ending.  I hope that more people that I know read it, so that we can talk about it.

Sorry for the lack of images today, just wanted to quickly update the status of the recent novel.  Must go now watch puppy movies, for good measure.

Please keep reading and being true to your school!

My husband and I on our honeymoon, lifted from the Internet.

Am currently reading Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan.  It's really good. 

Now that everybody knows that my husband and I are cats who like to read, I should probably mention our pet, Pepper, who is also a cat.  She is a cutie, so look forward to images of her!

Read one story by Alice Monro that I did enjoy, though have not pursued further stories because of getting caught up in the novel.  In any case, it is clear to me that there are so many stories but so little time!

The present moment awareness is going pretty well, especially when I take my anti-depressant.  Seriously, I was in a funk this morning when not having it, but ended up happy shortly after I actually did.  My message to humanity must be, just take your meds carefully.  My mood also may have been influenced by my husband, whose arrival home after work bolstered my spirits.

Promise to figure out posting images.

Well, finished Wife 22 and thought that it was cute, though the surprise ending was great, even though I could kick myself for not figuring that one out.

The holidays were a blast, and I was very, very happy, just to be happy.  One good miracle of chronic depression is that of life being very, very much alright when it is alright.  Hopefully my current good feelings will last.  I think that these are God's promises, and that just might be the miracle, eh?

Must go read currently, because now I've got short stories by Alice Monro, in the collection, Dear Life.  This sounds about my speed, especially currently.  I hate to say that I'm not the best novel reader, but probably that's okay and I'm still good enough and smart enough.  The folks who read one million novels all of the time are my heroes, but I also like short stories and not series books.  One album at a time, one painting in a view, that's about my current speed.

Happy year round, present moment holidays for the coffee drinkers. :)
