What I’ve Been Reading & Watching:

I finished reading the delightful book “Other People’s Houses” by Abbi Waxman. (Laugh out loud book!)

And I am now reading “We Are All The Same In The Dark” by Julia Heaberlin. (Insightful narrative)

I finished watching “Traces” on Britbox and am now watching more of the “Vera” episodes on BritBox. I love Vera! She’s just so real with her unmatched clothing and the way she calls everyone “Love.”

  1. You’re the second blogger today to mention the series, Vera. I think I have to check it out. I need a laugh out loud book – putting Other People’s Houses on my list!

  2. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be reading anymore. I preferred it a few months ago before all the new changes. I assumed you needed to be less personal for a while after Charlie, to take an emotional break. But now it feels like every other blog out there. I find myself not bothering to visit anymore.

  3. Hi Brenda. I’m having just a little bit of trouble with this new format. The biggest thing is there’s no date listed until I click on a topic to read. It was easier, at least for me, to see the dates right away, so I knew exactly when you wrote an article. I do like the notable mentions section. Also, I’ve been wondering how your hands are doing. Didn’t you put off your surgery temporarily? I hope they aren’t giving you a lot of trouble.

    1. I just fixed that with the dates. My hands are so-so. I wear the arthritis gloves every night. Not having much problems with frozen fingers at this time, but the thumbs, especially my left thumb, is a wreck. A tendon or something at the base of my thumb keeps me from using that joint at all.

      1. Thank you for fixing the dates! I’m sorry your hands are still hurting you so much. Hopefully the brace helps at least a little. My right thumb has been hurting a lot lately, but only if I try to crack it. It never used to, so I don’t know why all of a sudden it’s hurting. It’s frustrating when you rely on your hands and they hurt.

  4. Love this feature you are doing. The ideas and tips are great. I know you had work done on the site, but your heading is not coming up. Just an fyi. Love your blog and the new features are the best. Thank you for being so awesome.
