Well, it's been two weeks since my last Sunday Salon post. In the interim, I had surgery and between the hospital and then early recovery I wasn't much up to blogging. Or reading or much of anything it seems. I have been surprised at just how fatigued I have been but I guess as the body heals, it zaps energy. I am starting to feel a bit better now and glad to be getting back to some sense of normalcy.
Reading: I am currently reading Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan - I picked this up at BEA and started reading on the bus home and was pulled in - very happy to be getting back to it. I haven't read her first memoir (The Middle Place) but read and heard great things from others about it. I just finished Love, Water, Memory by Jennie Shortridge on my e-reader. This book is affecting and reaffirmed my like of this author's writing
Listening: Still on Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe. I started this before the hospital and was moving right along then I listened a bit in the hospital during some pain med induced fugue and have lost all track of the story - I need to get back and figure out where I was when I was lucid!
Blogging: See above - non-existent! Hoping to get some posts done this week now that I am feeling a bit better. I have been dropping in on a few of your blogs here and there but also hope to do more of that this week.
Watching: Looking forward to Downton tonight, despite its conflict with THE BIG GAME. We will see- I may DVR it if my Dad and I are really into the game and don't want to switch over. It won't be much of a party around here - I am still on a liquid/puree diet (and somehow pureed nachos doesn't do it for me!) but if you are looking for some Super Bowl snacks, Diane has a great sample on her blog. And, OMG, this Snickers Chex Mix from Iowa Girl Eats looks divine
Looking Forward To: Feeling more and more like my old self. Perhaps enough to enjoy some of this forced downtime.
Grateful: For all the help (book arguments in the guest room notwithstanding) my parents have given me since surgery. I am an adult but it is nice to be babied a bit!
