9 days later and still losing the fight! I went to ModSquad a week ago Friday, there was a change in the weather, so blamed the beginning of it on that. By Saturday, I was down and out. And I mean the kind that you don't get out of bed for days!! It took me a week to get enough oomph to walk a block and back. Then back to bed.
I was lucky, I was hurting but could still read. I read really fast - and I loved some books from the library - My DH even went to the library when some reserved books came in. He's the Best!
The Breakaway by Jennifer Weiner - she's been prolific - I have to check out the ones I missed.
Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center. I'd read and liked one book by her but I've missed a few of hers too.
City Spies book 1 and 2 by James Ponti. It's a kid's series about 12 year olds working for British Intelligence. Awesome! In fact, I told my DDL to get them for the Gkids! He has one series on Hoopla - Framed is the first book - I've started listening to them too.
Crazy Love by David Lozell Martin 2002! Our library wraps books for Holidays, (Blind Date promo) - there's a short description outside the wrapping - but you don't know what you're getting until you take it home and unwrap it! This one was a great surprise.
The Lost Cause by Cory Doctorow. Maga vs New Agers It was interesting, thought I'd stop and put it aside, but I couldn't!
The Excitements by C J Wray is what I'm reading now. It's a paperback and those have gotten problematic for me - the print can be truly tiny and you can't adjust the print size with a book.
Okay, I'm 71 - a fossil - but I love BOOKS! Much more than ebooks. Yes, I will resort to them if I can't wait ... laying in bed waiting to fall asleep, real books are perfect! And you don't have to get out of bed to plug them in - just drop them under the lamp and go to sleep!
We have been watching TV too. Prime ExPats; and dvds that we still own. Deep Impact; 2012; San Andreas were the disaster movies. We also watched Kate and Leopold; Dave; and Must Love Dogs! All great - which is why I kept them. If this darn flu goes any longer we've lined up Patriot Games, Begin Again, Wild River, both Sabrina movies and The Day After Tomorrow! Whoo-Hoo!
I have not felt good enough to play in the sewing room, but have managed some epic ripping and some stitches on a embroidery sampler I taught in 2019. It's been in time out ... I don't want to talk about it.
The weather has been mainly rain with some 'OMG - it's really coming down!' Good old Oregon.
Okay - that's all the whining I'm going to expose you to. Believe me - there's more but not as cathartic as I hoped!
Here's pictures of our ModSquad challenge this month. I was in NYC last fall and found a panel of Lady Liberty fabric and brought it back to share with the group. It was a great turn-out and only a few kept Lady Liberty whole. They cut, they ripped, they made it into background ... we NEVER have cookie cutter projects at the end! And we are always amazed. Thanks gals! Next month our challenge is
'Door and Words!' Stay Tuned!
