Coffee of the Day - Iced Coconut Mocha ('cause it is stinky hot outside!)
Hello everyone! sorry I have been away for a while. that last round of chemo has taken it's toll on me. oh lawsie, do I ever hurt deep down in my bones. I've spent so much time in bed, mainly sleeping, but also doing some reading. I can't seem to get the energy to move, but this fever I've had since chemo isn't helping things either. yep, I'm whining like a proper 2 year old today! just wait until I throw myself down on the ground and start pitching a fit.... but wait, that would require much more energy than I have right now, so we'll just pretend...
I. do. not. feel. good.
not pretty, proper English, but right now I just don't care. we'll get out the red marking pen and proof read my blog for errors later..... ;)
anyhow.......I have read a LOT of books lately. some good, some stinkers, but one I feel compelled to tell you about. you know that I am a nerdy sort. this is a non-fiction book, but one that really touched my heart. It is called 'The Immortal Life of HEnrietta LAcks'. my goodness, was it a book that just reached out and grabbed me, not just because of the science, but because of the people. It will most certainly make you think. and ask questions - important questions.
another book I thoroughly enjoyed was 'Sarah's Key'. This is a work of fiction based on a true time in history.
hopefully the next time I post I will be feeling better. looking forward to being able to craft again. I really miss it, but gosh, just don't feel much like doing anything yet.....
y'all take care and know you are loved!
btw - I have linked the books to the Barnes and Noble website, but I get almost all of my books and movies from the public library. what a remarkable place! :)
p.s. A quick birthday shout out to our son, Mick! I am so proud of the man you are becomiing. God has blessed me as a mother, indeed! :) may your day be filled to overflowing with all you could ever hope for!
