|This is Cody, my Mom's faithful companion (Cocker-Golden).|
Sorry that I disappeared on you again. I had a few horrendous days of website work that I had to tend to. Two complex medical sites at once! Everything else had to come to a screeching halt. And then I spent the weekend with my Mom and her doggie, Cody. Last week was a tough one for my Mom with her first Valentine's Day alone without my step-Dad. Then Saturday was their anniversary (it would have been 34 years). Sunday was marked 6 months since Dad went to Heaven.
I didn't want her to be alone so we had a girl's weekend. I brought her some pretty pink tulips and we watched movies and went out to eat twice!
So again, sorry for being MIA, especially in the midst of my Valentine's giveaway which I'm extending to this Sunday. All commenters get a chance to win a journal and chocolate. There will be 2 winners!
I'm going back to Mom's this afternoon and spend another couple of days with her. She will be joining me on a research trip to the Kittery, Maine area. She lives about 1 1/2 hrs south from me, and our destination is about another 1 1/2 hrs further south. I'm so excited because our day trip will include genealogy research AND writing research. A book that I hope to write someday involves some of my ancestors who were famous first settlers of Maine. In the evening we will be going to a presentation sponsored by the S. Berwick historical society, "Dressing a Colonial Lady" with historical reenactor Mary Spencer. And I plan to tell you all about it!
My Mom's been busy taking inventory of all her novels, creating spreadsheets and such. She reads as much as I do and we often share books. It's rather fun having a friend to discuss novels with! She's thinking of selling some of them on ebay. I used to do that to earn new book money, but lately I just keep stacking my shelves.
P.S. The first one to name that novel (face up) that's in the dog picture above you get an extra entry in my giveaway!
What do you do with the books you've read? Do you keep them, share them, sell them?
