By Sunday morning, I was really under the weather. Nothing horrible but I didn't feel well enough to do much of anything except keep propped up with a pillow and a throw, reading Pilgrim's Inn on the Kindle. I kept intending to write but my brain and body refused. There is nothing one can do when they gang up on you together.
Yesterday, it was time for the injection in my eyes again. That month always seems to go by quickly! So that took up part of the day and didn't help to make me feel any better. My eyes sting awhile after the injection, at least it wasn't a month that they had to take photos of the retina. Those numbing drops make me sleepy.
I did take advantage of being in that part of town to stop by Barnes & Noble before my appointment, enjoying a cup of coffee and reading The Heart of the Family on the Kindle. I told my husband that I felt a little guilty pulling out my Kindle in Nook territory... but just a little. ;)
I know some people don't care as much for The Heart of the Family as they do the first two books but I love it. It speaks to growing older as well as family... and as all the trilogy does... the power of our homes to replenish the soul.
I am feeling better today. Not perfectly well but better. I don't know if it was a mild virus or just literally being under the weather. We had a record low and a record high temperature in the same week. Our weatherman said, if you include the negative wind chill last week, it was a 90 degree swing in temperatures. Yikes, that isn't good for anyone.
I have homemade chicken noodle soup ready for dinner and the dishes are caught up. So after checking in with you, I am going to read more of the Eliot Trilogy. I will be sad when I finish, even though I have read the books multiple times.
I will be back tomorrow or Thursday to review a friend's new book. No, this time not the Clarksons! Although their new book, Girl's Club, is being launched today. I didn't have the time to take part in the launch of this book. I've heard it is quite good.
