The last two days have been insanely busy. Partly because Wizard and I borrowed a carpet cleaning from our daughter-in-law, and first decided to do one room. But it did such a great job, we wanted to do the entire the downstairs in two days, which includes moving furniture
All this while cooking/baking tri tip, chicken, spanish rice, and cookies, as well as putting together and salad and some bread for Youngest and his amazing wife with the broken foot. She’s not supposed to be on that foot at all, and we want to help with enough food to last them a few days. I offered this to do this, they’d never ask.
And then the car had to go into the dealer for an issue under warranty. No problem they took care of it, but when we were driving it home, all the warning lights came on. So the next day we took it back, and by the way, that’s like a 50 mile round trip twice a day to drop it off and pick it up–while we’re doing all this cooking, furniture moving and carpet cleaning.
Plus I had to do a some shopping to begin prep to T-day…LOLOLOL!! Wizard and I forget we’re not 20 years old anymore and try to do too much at once. But we got it all done, and we’re happy about that…however l ran out of steam to write a blog. So let’s talk about books.
I’m listening to a fiction novel about World War II that I’m really enjoying called THE THINGS WE CANNOT SAY by Kelly Rimmer. It’s told in the past in Poland when the Nazi’s invaded and the present in the U.S. Interesting, but not lighthearted, obviously. I also like that there’s a child in this book on the Autism spectrum, and very interested in seeing more of him and his relationship with his Polish, WWII survivor grandma.
And I’m reading on my Kindle a non-fiction book IF YOU TELL by Gregg Olson. This one I like, but it’s a disturbing account of abused children, so definitely not for everyone. This book is not released until December 1st, but I got an advance copy through an Amazon Prime program.
I didn’t choose two grim books on purpose, these are just the two that held my interest. Sometimes, I can’t go near darker books, and other times, I can read them with no problem.
So that’s what I’m reading, what are you reading or listening to?
