It's a rainy Sunday afternoon. Later we'll be going to youngest son's to play Mexican Train (dominoes) but for now I thought I'd share what I've been reading this week.
The first book I read was A Three Dog Life. It's the true story of Abigail Thomas and how she rebuilds her life after her husband is hit by a car and loses his memory. Because of his moods ( rages) he has to live in an institution. Sounds like a depressing book but I didn't find it so.
The next book was When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanith. The author, a neurosurgeon aged 36 is diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. He describes how it was to go from being the doctor to being the patient. This book was a little bit depressing because in the end he dies.
Okay on to this little Christian magazine which I've never seen before. Full of short inspiring stories
(one written by what I believe to be a good friend of second oldest daughter).
I bought this book for its illustrations and cute rhyming text. I hope I can get M to let me read it to him. Maybe even show him where California is on the map. At 10 he's not quite as apt to listen to MY choice of reading material.
This little cookbook which promises to" provide recipes for dishes you really want to eat but without the fuss and fanfare". As you know I read cookbooks like novels, looking at coloured illustrations and imagining how I would make it. Then I go back to the old familiars. Still, for .25 I'll enjoy it and probably pass it on when I'm done.
That's it for my reading list. I hope you're having a lovely weekend and maybe even some sunshine.
Thanks for visiting, G.M.
