Friday Facts

Today, it rained pretty much all day. That was okay as we can use the rain and it gave me a day that I needed to catch up on all the blogs that I follow. I had over 500 emails from blogs that I follow back into March. I am still not caught up, but I sure made a good dent in it.

Monday Musings, January 28, 2019

Hello all. I have been a very busy girl and have gotten way behind on my reviews. Unfortunately, today I will be posting about six reviews of books I have read or listened to over the last week or so. I have not posted an update to my health journey for a while, so here goes.

Sunday Sharing

I have been posting lots of reviews and trying to keep up with reading and commenting on blogs, but is has been hard. Why you ask? I am in Florida for a 10 week visit. I hate the gray skies, they leave me a bit depressed, so I head south the day after Christmas and stay until mid March.

Thanks for Following Me

I am extremely humbled to know that I have 500 people out there who find what I have to say interesting enough to follow me.

I know some of you have thousands of followers, but for me, a retired grandma who enjoys reading, I am surprised to have 500 followers. So, if you are one of those people who follow me, I say Thank You and I hope that I continue to post reviews and other things that you find interesting enough to spend time reading.

Waiting Somewhat Impatiently

Hello all, this is going to be short but definitely sweet. I am once again running behind posting and reading blogs, but that is because I spent the day with my grandchildren while my son took his wife to the hospital. Baby #3 is supposed to arrive, but so far, nothing yet. She has been having contractions since late this morning and was admitted to the hospital, but this baby is being stubborn. Hope Baby Peter decides to arrive sooner rather than later.

Thanksgiving Thursday

To all of you in the wonderful blogger community,


Even if you are not celebrating today (We Canadians celebrated back in October), enjoy your day and think about all you have to be thankful for. Enjoy time with friends and family.

Lest We Forget: Remembrance Day 2018

It has been 100 years since the ending of the “War to end all wars” and we are still not living in peace. Let us take the time to remember the sacrifice of the many men, women and civilians who died in WWI and all the armed conflicts since then. We have so much to be thankful for because of these sacrifices. I do not know about the US, but in Canada, churches will be ringing their bells at sunset to commemorate that day back in 1918.
