Oooh, both those books sound really good; thanks for the recomendations.
Hi Chuck, any more local get-togethers coming up? That salsa concert was very fun and relaxing.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Hello Annie - Thank you for your warm welcome. So glad to hear from a fellow reader. I just finished Jacqueline Winspear's new book, THE MAPPING OF LOVE AND DEATH: A Maisie Dobbs Novel. I enjoy the way she develops characters as well as the historical context of Post-WWI England. I'm in the middle of, HOME TONIGHT, by Henri J.M. Nouwen --A beautiful reflection on the Parable of the Prodigal Son. I, too, enjoy Dicken's and now that you mention it - perhaps it's time to revisit my favorites. The last one I read was Little Dorritt.

Well, my "kitchen garden" is now in containers. What I thought were pole beans turned out to be bush variety after all, but they taste wonderful so that's all that matters. The rest is flowers which I inherited when I moved into this place a few years a go. I'm not sure about the green thumb part, but we are learning how to nurture each other.

Again, thanks for writing. I'd enjoy hearing back from you. CJ

Welcome.
I too love to read and garden. I'm reading Dickens' Bleak House presently. What are you reading?
The Pacific Northwest is a grand place to garden. I mostly like to play in the dirt. I have flowers and cabbages and hope to get some tomatoes before this warm weather disappears! My thumb is more brown than green.

I'm a lady with lots of creativity and compassion. I like connecting with people as well as finding time for peaceful solitude. I have physical limitations so need to find ways to exercise that alleviate rather than add to my pain. I love to read, garden and find ways for artistic expression. Looking for mutual encouragement buddies. C.J.
