Believing in the good

I have links to blogs I read although I rarely comment. I took the time today to mention how much Busy Mom's story meant to me. . . it makes you realize there is good all around you.

Happy Easter

We were up early to attend mass at 8 am even after being at a 50th birthday party last night for friend, Jeff. I wasn't feeling too well (hormonal issues) so we didn't stay late, and it was nice to get a good night's sleep. Today we head to Mom's for dinner about 3 or so. I have a few things I want to do for fun: work on cookbook I am putting together for family of Grandma's recipes, get different CDs for my car carrier, and put some clothes away. Its a nice relaxing day here, AND I still have tomorrow off before its back to a busy week.

Speaking of next week, Tuesday is a follow up at the specialists after 12 weeks of IV iron treatment and testing my blood. I don't think much has changed, but I also think we might be at a "wait and keep checking" point since I seem to have had most of the tests that determine serious issues like cancer.

Have a great day. . .and I hope its more springlike where you are.

Spring Reading Thing

Well, once again, I am going to join up for the Spring Reading Thing found at Callapidder Days. I did participate in the fall, but don't know if I managed to read all the books. I also fell away from blogging and I am hoping this will keep me going. Also, this runs through June 19th which means spring reading on my porch, and summer reading at the pool.
So, here is my list (which I reserve the right to add to or change. . .)

1. Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult**
2. Blue Blood by Susan McBride ***
3. Miss Invisible by Laura Jensen Walker***
4. 7th Heaven by James Patterson
5. Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella ***
6. Seeing Me Naked by Liza Palmer ***
7. It ain't all about the Cookin by Paula Deen
8. Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews ***
9. The Chili Queen by Sandra Dallas
10. Big Boned by Meg Cabot***
11. The Friday Night Knitting club by Kate Jacobs ***
12 The Year of Fog by Michelle Richmond
13 Twilight by Stephanie Meyers
14 Lexi James and the Council of Girlfriends by Melissa Jacobs ***

I also just went shopping at Borders to use up $51 in gift cards, and I spent $20 more, so I have about 6 or 7 other books I could add, but I need to see how fast I can read the ones I have.

Books on my to be read pile which is must larger than this list. .but I dont' want to think I can read that many.
