Is this the party to whom I am speaking?

I don't know why I used that title - this post is answering questions and addressing comments. Because I apparently can't be bothered to comment on my posts.

Regarding yesterday's post, my brother says that maybe we were doing jumping jacks. That sounds like crazy talk to me - I don't remember volunteering to do any kind of exercise at that age! That lamp in the background was made by my grandfather (maybe - I seem to remember having that myth debunked, but I need to check with my dad & get back to you).

I have nothing to say about Squirrel Wednesday. Except - I've already seen the picture for the next Squirrel Wednesday.

Darla asked how I read so many books. I actually don't really nearly as many as I used to. I blame blogging & Facebook. The only way that I get through as many as I do now is because of audio books. My long commute (nearly 2 hours each day), and listening to books while I walk, gets me through a book pretty quickly. My kindle books on the other hand seem to take forever to get finished. I need to quit playing Hearts & read!!

Well, speaking of reading, I need to get ready to go gazelle. Our book club is listening to Serial (that podcast about a murder from 1999). It's not exactly a book, but it's pretty good so far.


  1. aww, thanks for answering. I figured you listened while commuting. I am trying to do better about listening while I do housework etc. I really want to get lots of reading done this year so I am asking the ones I know who are good at it. :)

  2. I am afraid if I listened to audio books while commuting to work, I might not pay attention to the traffic and crash my car. I'm not very good at multi-tasking... :-(

  3. I really liked Serial. I changed my mind with each episode.

  4. I need to consider audio books because I don't feel good that I'm currently reading so little, mostly blogs.

  5. Just trying to keep up with SWMBO keeps me reading. Still, I passed about a dozen unread New Yorkers off to the BRD yesterday. The table they were was starting to tremble.

  6. I like audio books, too. I'm sure you're right about reading less because of computer activities. I need to read more, too. I don't read nearly as much as I used to.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!

Book Reviews – the August Edition

I’m not sure what happened in August, but I only finished three books (and one of those was a devotional for Enneagram 9s that I was suppose...
