Other Things…

A late welcome to the month of March! I’ve been awfully busy this week with other things, (grandson with the flu; daughter moving into her new home up north; doctor and dentist check-ups; exercise class three mornings a week; a return to morning power walks in preparation for a 5k race on the 17th).  It’s made it a little difficult to get back to my blog as scheduled. It keeps calling to me, though, no matter how busy I get!  And I have continued with my reading. Thank goodness I can listen while driving so I can continue enjoying my books despite the many errands.

Books Finished Since March 1st:  

Currently Reading:

  • Where the Crawdads Sing, by Delia Owens.  A birthday gift from my brother and sister-in-law. Really well-written and quite a story!
  • Trail of Lightning, by Rebecca Roanhorse.  The first book in a new post-apocalyptic fantasy series that caught my attention.

Podcasts I’ve Been Enjoying:

Hopefully, Life will soon settle down a bit and I can get back to my usual routines. Maybe the temperatures will even warm up, although I know it will be awhile before I can get back to  reading on the porch!

    You have been busy! How fun that you’ll be doing a 5K on the 17th! Wish I could come walk with you, Robin. We’re going on trip to Colorado in a couple of months and I’m trying to make sure my ‘walking’ skills are tiptop for that. Glad you are enjoying the Nikki Galena books. I loved all of them. I want to read Where The Crawdads Sing sometime in the next few months. Have heard good things about it. It’s nominated for an Edgar Award, which is kind of odd because I don’t think it is any kind of traditional mystery. Ha! Enjoy your weekend and spring will definitely be around before long (maybe).

      I wish we could walk together, too! We’d have great walking discussions! I’m not sure yet what I think about Crawdads. It’s definitely well written, an unusual book in that it is such a combination of things. The mystery part is compelling. I’m about 1/2 way through it and reading it very slowly. The life of this girl is really hard on me…the poverty and neglect. But I’m fascinated by her strength and resilience. I’ll let you know what I think overall when I finish it.

    You are busy! I love that painting of the woman reading on the porch. I need to Google the artist and save this picture for future use. Fingers crossed for warmer temps. The sun is out here today, but it’s chilly.

      Les, I love that painting, too! I had never heard of the artist, but when I googled him, I decided that this was my favorite of his work. I didn’t particularly care for many of his other paintings.
