I had gotten some money for Christmas & I finally decided to get a Kindle. It came last night and I’ve already downloaded four (free) books. I think I’ll still enjoy reading real books more, but there are some situations that call for a Kindle. Like when you’re trying to eat your lunch & the fat paperback won’t stay propped open on the right page. Or when you’re going on vacation & you don’t want to lug four books with you. Or when you’re reading in bed at night & it’s easier to not have to flip pages (this is really the scenario that sold me). Anyway, the four books I downloaded are:
- Letters of Catherine Benincasa by Saint of Siena Catherine
- Against All Odds (Heroes of Quantico Series, Book 1) by Irene Hannon
- Invisible (Ivy Malone Mystery Series #1) by Lorena McCourtney
- The Holy Bible English Standard Version (ESV) by a bunch of people and God
Yesterday I had the opportunity to practice my new attitude toward snow. It started snowing sometime around 4:00 & was coming down thick & heavy for a while. I left work a little early & started my trek home. And, really, the snow was not a problem. If I cursed at all, it was toward the other drivers who seemed inordinately cautious. Even then I told myself to calm down because their cars probably didn’t handle these conditions as well as my excellent car does. Talking to myself helped somewhat, but I’m glad no one was trying to take my blood pressure at the end of the drive.
I am considering a poetry break. Some of you of you are saying, “Oh no!” Some of you are saying, “Thank God!” And some of you are saying, “She writes poetry?” But it’s just for a week or so. The Christmas season seemed to be packed with poetry, which was nice, but the brain needs replenishing. With the Heroes of Quantico and elderly ladies solving mysteries, apparently. However, if I can somehow match my epic poem, “Sally Jo’s Curtains,” (circa 1974) to a meme I will certainly post it. Oh, and Wordzzle’s are back – woo hoo!
OK, enough rambling. You may now resume going about your business.
