Those of you who are regular readers know that I can be a little....neurotic. Or "tightly wound" as they so delicately put it in the movie "Lone Star." In fact, when I took my first knitting class, I had the problem of knitting too tightly. My teacher looked at me and said, "You seem to be...uh...really intense."
I have been struggling with irrational fears lately. I'm doing better. I'm trying to work on my faith life and "hand it over" to God a lot more. I'm not always successful at this. I've been having some difficulties with headaches and abdominal pain so, of course, my mind automatically races to "aneurysm" and "cancer." I have been to the doctor and....so far so good. I'm sure I'm fine. Probably just stress and dehydration. I think, however, that it is really time to get serious about exercise and better stress outlets. I used to take yoga and really enjoyed it. And I probably need more reading time. That always fixes things, doesn't it?
These books arrived on my doorstep this past week:
THE GIRL WHO FELL TO EARTH by Heidi W. Durrow
THE RED DOOR by Charles Todd
And....drum roll please.....
SOLAR by Ian McEwan
So excited to get that one! I am currently finishing up ETERNAL ON THE WATER and FIREWORKS OVER TOCCOA so I promise to add new reviews soon. Both are love stories so the timing is perfect considering the holiday right around the corner. I always try to get my ARCs done before the publication date so a few keep getting pushed down the pile. Namely....THE PASSAGE which I am dying to start! We are being inundated with rain right now and I would love to just sit at home in front of the fire reading. If only work didn't get in the way!
