The scene: Noon on Sunday morning after a long walk with with Prince. He is recovering in his new bed.
|I have been keeping his hair long as a form of insulation but he's getting scruffy - time for a cut!|
Reading: Four Friends by Robyn Carr - this is an easy read but the jury is still out on what I think of it. Generally I enjoy books about women's friendships but some of these women are not resonating with me. It does, however, have some witty dialogue which I am enjoying. I recently finished Five Days at Memorial - what an amazing read (or listen in my case). The pacing in the book is excellent and it almost felt like a thriller rather than non-fiction. The book gives you so much to think about.
Blogging: It seems I am back to having issues posting regularly - my last Sunday Salon post was a month ago and the reviews have been few and far between. I hoped to use my time off to bank some posts but that just didn't happen so I am still limping along here. We'll see - I might need to re-evaluate blogging and if I want to continue to prioritize it. This week, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I posted a review of one the many reads I did for the Ireland Reading Challenge - An Irish Country Girl by Patrick Taylor. I love this series and this book actually stands alone and doesn't need to be read following the earlier ones.
Watching: My TV time has really tapered since I returned to work - not watching much on the tube right now. I did go to see the musical Once last weekend - it was great! The music was amazing and you felt like you were sitting in bar watching it all unfold. I definitely recommend it. We topped that off with a trip uptown to Dinosaur BBQ. I have wanted to go for awhile -their BBQ is legendary. I am back on solid food but still with some restrictions so I had to have a burger rather than some of the other meat offerings but everything smelled amazing. I will be back!
Looking Forward To: A quick visit to Texas to see my brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. I am really looking forward to seeing them all again. My SIL and I are doing a 5K (I will be walking it since I only just got cleared for exercise) on Saturday - the DFW Women Rock. It looks like a lot of fun and I am excited to be back in the running world - it is something I have really missed. I also start my "running class" this week at Jack Rabbit Sports. Now that the weather is getting better (or trying to!) it will be good to get outside 2 nights a week for some exercise.
Grateful: For the body's ability to recover - I feel better every day and am more grateful for what my body CAN do than I every was before surgery.
