Welcome back PEANUTSMOM!

I had a long day yesterday; there was a wide spread power outage in my area; the power went out at 1pm, a few minutes after I finished the last load of laundry I was doing. The power didn't come back on til after 8pm. It got very chilly in the house during that time, as it was only 28F outside. I passed the time by doing a LOT of reading. Finished one book and started another one.

So, I listened to SparkRadio earlier today while cleaning house and decided to start a new streak - I reset my goals and decided I would visit one SparkTeam and two SparkFriend a day... now I can always visit more if I have time but I figure this is achievable with out spending too much time on my behind not focusing on fitness. I figure if I am checking in with everyone daily it will encourage me to log my nutrition and fitness.

I am super excited to be back in this club because I have found tons of great books to read! Can't wait to share my list with everyone and get ideas for more reads from you!

Today I am going to visit all my teams and leave this message so I can get started. Then I will begin rotating around.

I believe in you.
Have a Happy Day! HUGS

I just got the notice that a book came in that I want to read. It is for a mystery book club that I wanted to try. So the library is on the list for either this evening or tomorrow, after mah jongg.

Hello All,

I am sorry for the long time of not posting. I just went back to the doctor yesterday. He says that it is looking good and that I only need two more weeks in the cast. After that I can start therapy. I have put up another blog explaining everything a lot more details. It is called Dot's Updates.

I am now reading a book called Shelter Mountain, by Robyn Carr. So far it is a good book. It is keeping me interested in it.

Hope all is well with you all. I say prayers everyday for all of you. I hope that you all are doing ok. I am still just typing with one hand, anfd that one hurts as well.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day

Best wishes to all!

Good for you, Nomi!! We're getting close to the new card...

Joyce, I always had my taxes done much earlier but I had some things to do beforehand this time. Doing the taxes has always been my job. Once I finally sat down with the papers yesterday, it isn't so bad. I have to get them done, because I had some things are just too complicated for me to figure out--and be sure that I didn't goof. GOing to the tax lady tomorrow. Can't wait for the refund.

I know what you mean about reading. I have a book that I am not really interested in, and since I need to get something else, and I am suffering with it., But oh so slowly.

Shari - glad to hear about your good blood count.

It has started raining here. Going to get heavy rain and wind.

Played Mah Jongg - good game. Played in my house - even though I nibbled a lot more than I should have I threw everything out after they left.

Joyce, I can't remember the brand of the mattress pad, I bought it so long ago. Not sure what kind of stuffing is in it, but it's not gel or foam. It's extra thick and the way it is sewn it stays nice and fluffy. I like it and it's holding up pretty well. I have tried memory foam in the past, but the odor from the memory foam gives me a headache.

I had my chemo today, white blood counts are almost normal, which is a good thing.

Very gusty winds here too, but no snow or rain yet; I think the the snow is coming overnight but we are on the edge of the winter weather advisory area.

We got gusty winds, rain and sleet. The roads were a slushy mess and the car was a block of ice when I left work. Not as thick as last week though, so it wasn't as hard to scrape, which was nice since it was sleeting when I was out there and the wind was whipping it in my face - didn't feel too good!

Haven't been reading too much lately. Not really sure where my time has gone, although I know part of it is that I've been trying to increase my workout time and get more consistent. I guess that's a good reason to be losing some reading time.

Barbara - my hubby got our taxes done a couple weeks ago. It's so awesome that he does them and I don't have to think about it! lol

Shari - I was curious...I think you mentioned a while ago about buying a new mattress pad - maybe something that had some kind of gel/foam cushioning in it to help relieve pain in pressure points. Am I remembering correctly? And if so, I was wondering how it's holding up for you and if you still like it (and if so what brand/style is it)? Thanks!

Joyce

I always loved having books, but now I don't want to get any more. Just more stuff that I will have to clean out. I love using the library! I do still have a couple of bookcases that are pretty much full, but I am not ready to get rid of the books in them. They are things that I just loved.

Congrats Leona on winning the book about Blackjack, and a signed copy too! That is awesome!

Got another free book in the mail today, can't remember where I signed up for it; One Glorious Ambition; The Compassionate Crusade of Dorthea Dix by Jane Kirkpatrick.

This morning I started the book I received free from TheReadingRoom.com; Come Home by Lisa Scottoline.

Shari-another book. emoticon

I give my extra books to the library. I do keep a lot of books I win and buy.

I am reading The Travels of Sir John Mandeville that someone suggested on a blog. It is supposed to be based on his travels in the 1300s. I got it from the University of Minnesota through MNLINK, which is a borrowing system.

I also will start The Further Adventures of Blackjack about a horse that I won from Library Thing. It is a signed copy. I like to read some kid's books and I wanted to win it for my son's daughters. Problem is because he is off and on for work because of the economy, he had to give his horses over to an animal shelter. We were trying to help him with the feed but he decided to go ahead and give them up. Being a single father with three girls not working much is hard.

Have a good reading day.

We had snow too, some wet, heavy snow but only about 3 inches. It stopped by mid-morning.

I am getting another free book! I belong to Goodreads.com, and I write reviews of the books I have read there. I got this email today from author Martine Lacombe who saw one of my reviews on the site:

"I read your review of Water for Elephants a book that I greatly enjoyed as well. I am an author and my debut novel "Silver Orphan" is currently offered as a February giveaway, from which I expect some reviews. What I really need right now are Amazon reviews! If you have ever purchased anything from Amazon and have a login and password, you may review any item.
If you have the desire, time, and inclination to read and review my book, I'd gladly mail you a Galley copy. If you have no affiliation with Amazon or simply have no desire to share your opinion, please enter the giveaway, I think you would really enjoy Silver Orphan."

We got almost 5 inches of snow with sleet on top yesterday. Today they have most of the main roads cleared but none of the back roads. they called a lot of things off yesterday, including the schools. School was again called off today. It's supossed to get up into the 40's on Sunday but another storm is coming in on Monday. We just stayed home.

Have changed my mind about keeping so many books & will go thru & take what I don't want any more to the used book store. Funny how you can change your mind about things AFTER you've spent years collecting them!

I went to a new book club last night. It was a large group, and there was a woman there whom I knew from the other group I had gone to!! Turns out, it aggravates her almost as much as it does me, but she hasn't given up yet. There was more of a discussion in this group, although the librarian who is running it is a little disorganized, but I think it might straighten out. Next month, I may try going to another branch which has a mystery group, since I love mysteries!!

Jeanine - how exciting that you are so close to retirement!

Naomi - Richard Simmons! I haven't done one of his workout DVDs in a long time. He used to annoy me too much to work out to (I think it's his voice), but I love his personality and I've grown to tune out his voice and enjoy his enthusiasm for life.

I started reading Mindfullness: The No-Diet Diet Book by Elaine Fairman. I haven't gotten too far into it yet, but so far I like it. Her philosophy about "diet" seems to be pretty much the same as mine so far, but I know I struggle with "listening" to my body so I'm hoping that this book can help me fine-tune that.

No chemo for me this week, when they did my labs today, my white blood count was too low. It's not good to have low WBC, but I wasn't feeling good to start with today.

I finished my book last night, and started another one; Don't Spend It All On Candy by Audrey Meier DeKam. It's a memoir about the author and her two sisters growing up on welfare during the 70's and 80's, and how they broke that cycle of poverty. It reminds me a lot of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, only this book has some humor in it and is not as dark.

I also got a free book in the mail today from www.TheReadingRoom.com , an advanced copy of Come Home by Lisa Scottoline.

Finished my book last night. It's The House on Mango Street and on one hand, I thought that the author really used language well, but on the other hand, I didn't think there was much of a story. On the whole, I would have to say that I liked it.

Only 3 days into my habit of reading first thing in the morning, but I really like starting the day that way. I still read in the evenings at bedtime too, but lately it's hard for me to stay awake for long. Hoping to finish my current book tonight though.

I am finally having time to read more and that is great. Things are about the same - getting the count down until I retire in August. Really looking forward to it. Hope everyone has a great week.

I don't generally read in the morning, but my favorite is midday! I find I start reading in the evening and then I start drifting off!

Worked out to an old Richard Simmons tape. They make me feel happy. Didn't have much time so only did 15 minutes. I like to do something even if 10 or 15 minutes. Have to leave soon.

Enjoy your day.

Barbara - good for you

Shari - isn't that the greatest. That is my treat Sat. mornings. I get up and read.

I didn't read the entire book I had started - Play Dead - I read some and then read about 75 pages at the end. I did want to know what happened but I wasn't enjoying it. This was a Harlan Coben book - I think one of his earlies, if not his first - I couldn't plow through it.

I started Blackberry Winter - Sarah Jio - I've read her other books. So far so good.

Tomorrow is my granddaughter's family birthday party. She'll be 9. it is a surprise. As my daughter didn't plan on having a family party only a children's. My gd got upset so this is a susrprise for her.

I've been getting so sleepy in the evening when I try to read, I decided to spend about 20 minutes reading in the morning before I get up for the day. I did that this morning and it was a nice way to wake up.

Good for you, Nomi! I came out ahead yesterday as well. My goal is always to break even and to try new hands, and I got to do both so a good day!

Hi all,

Just finished 90 minutes of heavy cleaning. I am going to rest today. Later on, I am going to read for a while. Reading Margaret George Henry 8th historical fiction.
