I cannot believe it has been a month since I have posted anything. What can I say? Have I been busy? Yes. Have I been lazy? Yes. Do I really have anything to talk about? No.
I guess everybody has lags in their blog lives and I have had in the past as well but never this long. So, let's see, have I been doing anything at all?
Well, first off, I have been keeping up with politics on Facebook. It is awful. It is ALL awful. I have to say that I am depressed and defeated just seeing what is going on. I need to quit paying attention to it but it is hard when that is all that is on my FB page. So, I posted a picture of a kitty. Did it help? No. Not a bit. In past elections we had the crummy stuff and then after the fact life went on. Is that how it will be this time? I am truly not sure.
I finished a book by Frederik Backman entitled "My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She Is Sorry". It was a slow start for me but it picked up and, like many other books I have read. it became difficult to put down. It was funny and sad. I rarely cry over a book but I shed tears over this one. It goes without saying that I identified with Granny and I have my own Elsa so, 'nuf said.
I have been busy with Girl Scouts a bit. Last week we made dog toys for donation to a local human society. It was fun. The girls learned to braid. Not sure if the dogs are going to appreciate their efforts but the girls had fun.
I went to our annual church dinner last night. It is held at a local Mexican food restaurant called Joe T. Garcia's. The food was good, the fellowship outstanding, and the weather cooperated. A good time was had by all.
My mother in law fell in September and broke her hip. She had surgery and after a week was placed in a rehab center. She is still there. I think she is getting too comfortable there, even though she doesn't like it. So, all the visiting and laundry is keeping us busy.
I have made a couple of cards. My grandson had his first piano recital last week. Has only taken lessons for four months and he was outstanding. I didn't know what to take him for his achievement -- flowers didn't seem right -- so I made him a card. I should have taken a photo. Today I made a card for my eldest granddaughter who is having a birthday party tomorrow night. I will take a photo of that when it is complete.
Other than that, there isn't much newsworthy going on. We had fall for a few minutes and it is pretty summery again. That is ok. I can handle it, at least it isn't 107 degrees. Hopefully I will emerge from this depression I have gotten myself into soon. It is exhausting and annoying -- even for me! I am sure I will feel better after November 8. Or maybe not.
