Wow! I have had writers block for the last couple of months, or just not anything worthy of writing about, or just too busy.
We helped move our daughter Tera and grandson Brady from Denver to Greeley. So glad she lived on ground floor, as it took us quite a time to recover. Tera had a job transfer. They are now living in a condo, with allot more room than their previous apartment. And so nice light and airy.
Brady has made a few friends in his new high school and is settling in nicely. Tera likes her new job, the co-workers, and sure does not miss the hustle and bustle of the big city. Not to mention the crime, and time on the freeways. We are so happy to have the both of them only 26 miles from us, vs 95 miles. We got together this past weekend, to watch a movie, eat pizza, and Tera showed me how to work facebook. A really nice afternoon on a wintry day.
MY GOOD READS
Oh my gosh! I have read some fantastic books since December. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, a suspenseful thriller about a psychopath. The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian, about the Armenian genocide. Mudbound by Hillary Jordan, loved this book, a connection between a black and white family in the Mississippi Delta in the 1940's, farm life.
The Devil's Highway and Across the Wire:Life and Hard Times on the Mexican Border, by Luis Alberto Urrea. Both of these books were real eye openers for me, having lived just 80 miles north of the border when we lived in Arizona. Dreams of Joy by Lisa See, about life and hard times in Red China during the 50's.
