Of Smalls and Sunshine


                                                                                                                 
It’s a blue sky kind of day today.

  • Imagine.  Sunshine most of the weekend.


  • Imagine also sleeping in for four days.


  • I took that poem about blooming to the writers group yesterday, and they all laughed.  It’s all in how it is read.  I was very pleased.


  • I also did the dentist again yesterday.  One tooth filled.  My teeth are now ready for surgery.


  • Speaking of the writers group.  One of our most talented members has died.  He was diagnosed with early onslaught Alzheimer’s while working on his second pHD.  http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/utsandiego/obituary.aspx?n=stanton-camiel-shimon&pid=165036607&fhid=3140#fbLoggedOut>Here’s his obit in the local paper.
  •  His brilliance was much missed when he left the group.


  • I get to shuffle books today.  I love this job, and boy will I miss it while I am gone.


  • Smalls indeed.  G got the laundry done for this truncated week, and I got the grocery shopping done.


  • We have lift off.

    1. RE: Goodreads. As one friend say, follow your nose. Find the correct code for your blog on the GR site and plug it into an app on your blog home page. I don't remeber what WP calls those things, but you must visit both sites. It took me a while to figure it out. Given my age, I have forgotten how I did it. That is so annoying. Sorry I can't be more helpful. Dianne

      PS Love that clear blue sky. Envy here. Muggy already and I must walk the dogs.

    3. So you're in a writer's group. I've thought of trying that, but it doesn't fit into my life yet.

      I clicked over to the obituary of your friend. It's always sad to see someone leave this earth.

      Do you appreciate those sunny skies out their in San Diego?! :) Not that it's bad here in central Virginia.

    6. Got the funeral brochure today with photos of a dear friend who had used his PhD for research on water in the western U.S. over these past years. He was so smart and funny and within a year in his 70's he got some rare disease that brings about senility and shortly death. So hard to see someone who is so brilliant end in such a diminished capacity.

    8. Survived dog walking and spent an hour on the phone with DIL Wendy. She asked about you. I told her about the upcoming surgery.

      Re GR: Enter each book in your "my books - currently reading" page. They will pop up as "read" "currently reading" or "to read" depending on where you enter them. I have far too many on my "to read" page, so i don't show that one on my blog.
