I just discovered something…I can’t read without the TV on…seriously. I don’t think I had this kind of a TV addiction before last year…my year of chemo. I had to have a TV on or else I would think too much about what those chems were doing to my body…this is my excuse. Last year was the year of the chair that I had to have…the comfy loungey chair that I could sit in and wrap a furry throw around me in and watch TV in and not think in. It was important to me to not think too much about anything last year. I accomplished that. I am under that furry throw but this year I am thinking more…and reading…with the TV on. Sigh! Den says just turn it off but I can’t…yet. Soon? Maybe!
Book news…I just got a note about this book and it was available at Edelweiss! A family…not functioning well…yum…and a cookbook? Even better!
From Amazon…“Wonderful characters, a gorgeous sense of time and place, and elegant storytelling make GO ASK FANNIE an utter delight. The members of this loving, raging, totally compelling family may not like one another all the time, but I adored them all from the first page. Elisabeth Hyde has written a funny, joyous novel, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once and in the very best ways.” — Laurie Frankel, author of This is How It Always Is
Off to read and then a dentist appointment…yeah!
