Who Knew?

Sunday afternoon...

I think I really do have my desire to read back again. Of all the starts and stops I have had I ended up getting quietly engrossed in some cozy mysteries that involve foods, recipes, Hannah the bake shop owner, two dudes she could be romantically involved with and a very spoiled kitty. And after staring at these books for a while...I realized that they were the basis for the Hallmark Channel mysteries...too funny.

Joanna Fluke...wherever you are...thank you! I may work my way through all of her books and TV movies. I think it's a combination of the bright colors and the recipes that drew me in. Either way...I don't care...I am reading...genres that are more my style should come soon!

 

Last night or early Monday morning...

It's 3:07 AM and I just now woke up...I tried falling back to sleep but I couldn't but this is a long stretch of sleep for me! I will read for a bit and I bet I will fall asleep soon! Den and Lucy are sound asleep! Roxie and I are the ones who are up in the night...Roxie is quietly exploring...she just tucked herself next to Den...I should do that, too! This was during Sunday's Bronco game...we are both so excited! Go Broncos!

Have a great Monday!

  1. Oh, I love those Hallmark Mysteries...and although I've read some Joanne Fluke, I haven't read more than one or two books in this series. I started watching the movies because of Alison Sweeney, who stars as Hannah. (She was on Days of Our Lives for many years!).

    So glad you are getting your reading mojo back...and it's perfect that you're gravitating toward the food ones, as you've been loving those food channels.

    Have a great week!

  2. You look much better, Patty. The color is returning to your face! Circulation is good. There was a lot of football watching this past weekend. Tonight, what will win out? The debate or football?

  4. Don't feel bad about not finishing a book, Patty. The beauty of life is that books will always be there for you whenever you feel inclined. You're recovering from major surgery. Just go with the flow.

  7. I've been pretty absent from my blog but not from reading other folks' blogs recently. I've been following your journey here because I care... and am waiting for that day when you can do a fist pump in the air, and say "Yes! I'm done with all this!"

    By the way, as I'm going through my own health issues recently, I lost my taste for violent stories and have been reading cozy mysteries, historical mysteries, historical romance, lightweight suspense, etc. for now.

    The tide will turn for both of us with our reading genres, but thank goodness for any book that gets our reading mojo back! I must check out Joanne Fluke titles & the Hallmark series. Also, she has an older book series of light suspense (I think that's what they are, that have recently been re-released). Sleep well!

    1. Rita...yes...I did come upon her older ones as I was looking at these. The Hallmark movies are sweet...and I am enjoying these books.
      I hope you are feeling better and getting stronger, too!
