Been a bit of a hermit the last few days. Not on the computer, but for a few minutes here and there. My husband has been feeling poorly and trying to hang on until Tuesday March 12th for his surgery. It's hard to watch a loved one in so much discomfort. But soon that will all be taken care of!
It was sunny and up to 35 degrees F today which made Spring seem very real and close. That Spring feeling can be almost overwhelming, but keeping feet firmly on the ground as we are sure to have more winter. Still, the giddiness of it was pleasant.
I have been re-reading my beloved book series by Diana Gabaldon. Book One is called Outlander and there are currently 7 books total in the series. They are all hefty tomes and so compelling that once I begin a book, I am engrossed for hours. An Englishwoman in 1945 accidentally steps through mysterious stones in Scotland and ends up in the 18th century. She meets a Scottish Highlander and thus begins the most intriguing, breath-taking, romantic, thrilling saga I have ever read. The characters are brought to vivid life amidst the surroundings of battles, hardship, betrayal and a time-spanning love of mythic proportions. Wow, does that sound too purple-prosed? The eighth and possibly final book will be coming out sometime later this year. I have been waiting for over three years since Book 7 came out. So I am re-reading the entire series to be fully refreshed in the events and characters. It is a labor of love. (most of the books are over a 1,000 pages each.)
All for now, but back very soon! Bright blessings.
