Sunday (Evening) Post

What I finished this past week:  Sea Change, reviewed yesterday; Church of the Dog and Miss Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk, soon to be reviewed.

What I am continuing to Read: Girl in Translation,read a few chapters today, and Traveling Mercies by Ann Lamott.  On the latter I am rationing out one or two essays a day to make the  book last and to have time to ponder over each essay before moving on in this book of essays.

What I watched on TV: “Emerald City,” two episodes including this season’s finale, and two episodes of “Bull,” a fascinating show for it’s concept and also it’s plots and relationship sub-plots.

Have mostly been sitting marooned on the couch first by plantar fasciitis and today by the steady rain.  Only got out once today to take supper to a sick friend.  It was just down the road, and there was little traffic out and about.  I did get a little wet, so I took a vitamin C with a zinc chaser (boots the immunity system and the absorption of the C), so I should be fine.

Have a good evening and a good read tonight.

This year, I will have been a member of AAUW (American Association of University Women) for fifty years, a life time member (which means my fellow AAUW members will begin to pay my annual dues. (ha ha) In the 80's we began a book group to share our love of reading, books,and fellowship with other women and girls who loved the same. We resurrected the group on-line in September of 2015 and went on from there (See "Introduction",first blog). This is my first experience at blogging or publishing anything and is becomes more fun with each blog posted. I am currently teaching as an adjunct at The University of Houston Clear Lake. This makes my 27th year there after three years at Alvin Community College and an almost-twenty year career as a classroom teacher with Alvin Independent School District. Reading and writing are "in my blood" just like teaching is. I hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Oh dear Rae! So sorry to hear that you are so thoroughly laid up:(. I hope your visit to the Dr will help to ease things quickly. In the meantime keep warm and cosy – and I hope weather cheers up soon!x

    1. The doctor’s visit went well. Thank the Lord there is probably nothing serious at work here, but what is wrong is going to be a long, slow healing period. At least I now have some “tools” to fight with. I just hope I can endure the “rest cure.” Ha ha!

      1. I’m very relieved to hear that there is nothing too nasty to deal with. But yes… when the recovery is a slow business, the knack is not to compromise it by trying to hurry it along too much! Sending gouts of healing patience attcha.x
