I can’t tell you how badly I feel for not keeping up with my blog, but since my sister passed away and we had covid, my level of ambition is low. Tonight we went to our college alma mater, and I conducted an etiquette dinner for a group of juniors and seniors. Rich gave a speech about his career in pharmaceutical sales, and it was a nice evening. I always feel a lot better about myself when I donate time, and since covid, that’s another thing that’s been tough to do.
I’ve been reading a lot lately. I like crime dramas and murder mysteries, and have just finished a series of books by James Patterson that are NYPD Red..they’re numbered 2-6…they’re entertaining and very fast reads.
I’m lucky because here in Pennsylvania, we have the Philadelphia Free Library where we can get up to 6 ebooks at a time to read for free. You have them for two weeks and then they go away, and I really love this service. I’m not sure how I found out about it, but it’s a great thing for avid readers. I read a lot and like books that are fast reads. I’ve never been into books that are tough to get through and I remember when Oprah had her book club and would talk about a book that took her a while to get through, I always thought “I’ll pass on that one.” I enjoy James Patterson’s books that he writes with another author, and I wonder how much of these books he actually writes, as he puts out a ton of books a year. If you’ve ever looked at the number of books he says he’s written, it’s unbelievable. I have often wondered if he writes any of the co-authored books. Let me know what you think.
As for my craft room, it’s still a terrible mess. I wish I could get one of those women that organize to come in and figure out what to do with all of the things I’ve accumulated. It’s crazy (or maybe I am.)
I have been doing a lot of crafts and Rich is lagging behind on editing the videos. I probably have four or five that he needs to upload. I don’t like to push him because he’s got his own interests and I don’t want to take away from them.
You can tell that I’m not doing much and don’t have much to talk about. I wish I had more to say, but sadly, during covid, I think we all struggle to keep busy.
