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.


Author: Rae Longest

This year marks my fiftieth year in AAUW (American Association of University Women). The Alvin chapter was begun in 1947, and as a new, green teacher to Alvin Independent School District, I joined in 1968. 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. Eventually Powerful Women Readers folded as an on-line book club, but I kept the title and turned it into a blog. (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 28th 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
