Mid-week Ramblings

Grandma Peachy profile 1Morning coffee conversations with my husband often make me think, “I should write a post about that.” Then I go through my morning routine preparing his breakfast and lunch. By the time I’ve gotten him off to work I’ve forgotten what I thought was a good subject for a blog post. Oh well.

Yesterday and today hubby has been watching watching wild-eyed crazy videos on YouTube. From fuzzy video aliens to conspiracy theories and absurd allegations about the President and First Lady. Sometimes people are just insane about these things. Alien theories are there to convince themselves that there is no God. Conspiracy theories are just paranoia surfacing and those crazy allegations about the country’s leader and his wife are purely a distraction from the real issues. I watch those videos too, purely for entertainment. Seriously, who believes that stuff anyway?

The other day I had a request from an author to read one of her books for review. She had seen my review of a book by one of her friends and liked my review. So, after I’ve read the ones I’ve obligated myself to read over the next couple weeks or so I’ll get to hers. I’m rather eager to read  Sewing Can Be Dangerous And Other Small Threads by Sarah Mallery. I looked up her Amazon profile and read about her before I decided to read her book. She’s been an award winning quilter and quilting teacher. That cinched it for me. I love quilting and to have a quilter who is also an author is just too good to be true. So in a few weeks expect my review of her book. It is a collection of “long short stories” according to the description. I understand that the collection is mostly  mysteries, which I enjoy reading. Come to think of it, there are a lot of genres I enjoy because I love reading!

I haven’t been doing much except read lately. I’ve been having problems with arthritis and it can be debilitating at times. I’ve begun a regimen of herbal supplements that are supposed to help. I’ll give them a month and if they don’t perform as expected then I’ll go back to the doctor. I know that the next step medically will be steroid injection. I really don’t look forward to that. I had that done in my upper spine about ten years ago. It didn’t help as much as I thought it should. So, going through the motions again seems to me a waste of time and money. But, this time it’s arthritis, last time it was a herniated cervical disk. Maybe it’ll work better this time, if I need to go through that. Let’s see how the supplements fare over the next 3 weeks or so.

Have a wonderful rest of the week sliding into the weekend.

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.

    I’m sure all this damp, cold weather isn’t helping your joints either. Hope you get to feeling better.
