If you go to my Bookish Blog, (see link at right) you'll see my latest blather about a book I'm reading called, "Walking on Eggshells, Navigating the Delicate Relationship Between Adult Children and Parents." It's my latest "medicine," which I'm finding I really need...yuck...and must take. You thought parenting was over when they left for college, didn't you? Maybe when they graduated and got jobs....got married....? Ha!! Read this one and weep! Parenting is a life-long thing, ladies and gents, and it's not for the faint of heart. :[
Ooooo, boy, I'm very intrigued by this book. It's a new one in my pile, or rather on my little Stella (Kindle Storytella). Below is a quote from Part One:
"The Lace Reader must stare at the piece of lace until the pattern blurs and the face of the Seeker disappears completely behind the veil. When the eyes begin to fill with tears and the patience is long exhausted, there will appear a glimpse of something not quite seen.
In this moment an image will begin to form...in the space between what is real and what is only imagined."Very mixed reviews on "Gargoyle" are coming out, and I had to have this book. It's on surface about a wild, druggie sort of guy who gets into a car accident, becomes horribly burned, and then plans his suicide while he's getting his treatments to leave the hospital. He meets a young woman who's slightly "different" and who becomes his salvation and his love interest. A simplistic review as I haven't read it, yet. Evidently, people have strong reactions; they either love this book or hate it!
Most of my day was spent staring at a full laundry room, wandering about my house taking in the clutter, going through my stitching charts and tools, and sleeping. It was kind of a wasted day...but it was so hot outside, it was all I could muster myself up to do!
Do many of you watch "Nancy Grace? " I have loved Nancy for years. I started really watching Court TV when the "Lacey Peterson" trial was taking place. Her horrible husband, whose name escapes me, is now rotting in jail for murdering her and her tiny little, unborn baby. Remember that case? I truly believe it was an act of God that that baby washed up to shore.
Anyway, I'm on a new Nancy kick...watching her every night. And, I'm watching "The Closer," "Dexter," and "Cold Case," too. Jessica was over the other day with Kellan, and she asked me if I thought I could ever commit murder! LOL I was a little stunned, but also tickled. Why? She said because I'm always intrigued and watching murder stories and Nancy Grace and things!! :] I said, "I've learned never to say never in this life. But, mostly I'm just fascinated by murder mysteries and criminal minds. I would love to write mysteries and I love to read them." It was a funny question that had never occurred to me....but, have you murder mystery fans asked yourselves that??? LOL
Sending love and hugs long distance to friends and family,
PS: Thank you so much for your sweet comments about Kellan. We are so blessed to have him. Thanks!
