Buzz Books! Life! More Books!

Buzz Books...
I love them and want to acquire and read every new book in them! And now NetGalley is publishing them monthly! This year I learned that you can't spend your entire life reading! That is a valuable lesson for me and I enjoy reading in a different way now...a calmer less frenetic way. Being sick has taught me so much...not that I want to have what I have but I am learning so much from it. I actually sit and watch movies and sports and even the food channel with Den...and we talk...we have always talked but it's different without a book always open in front of me. It's actually nicer. I listen more. I am not always tuned on to rapid read.

With all that written...I still can't wait to browse through this Buzz Book and all of the next ones!

Life...

I had Wegman's ( Weggieman's ) Carrot Cake for dinner last night...OMG...it was so delicious. Den had Wegman's White Coconut Cake for dinner which he said tasted like the best wedding cake ever. Cake for dinner is a great idea...every once in a while. I wish we were having it again tonight.

Books...

I am not enjoying this book. It's rough and hard and mean and the word "shite" is used far too many times. I remember loving the first book this author wrote but I don't think I have read any after that. This book is really popular...I see it on tons of best seller lists but I just do not like it...that makes me sad. I am determined to finished it and that will be soon.

I think I am ready for something lighter...perhaps more funny? Either this...

Or this...

But knowing myself I will probably choose something totally different...sigh!

A relative sent us a picture of our first Christmas in our first house in Denver...not our first Christmas but our first one in Denver. I loved that sweater! I made all of those ornaments and still have them. And I still have my Christmas dishes, too. Our first house was a condo on a golf course and golf balls came through that window at least once a month!

Hugs,

Patty

  1. I love the idea of eating cake for dinner! Or pie. Sometimes it has to be done.

    I like how you are changing your perspective...and that is a great photo of your First Christmas in Denver.

    1. Too funny! That was only the second tree we ever had...we were married at that time for two years! We were babies!

  5. Yes, you need a light, fun read when you finish the "shite" book, haha.
    I've only had coconut cake once - it was good but I think Den's was probably better.
    My mom has those Christmas mugs. The golfball story made me LOL.
    Have a lovely day!
