April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of monthly news!
Spring finally sprung up near the end of the month. That made my month. I get less thrilled with Winter the older I get. How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
I did well for books, and according to Goodreads, I'm 3 books ahead of schedule for my goal of 100 books. I feel good about that. How's your progress?
In my private life, my mom, who is widowed and recently retired, has moved in with me. Though she will be at the cottage for most of the year, the winter will be with me. You may hear more about her in my posts to come. Are any of you caregivers or live with your parents? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Congrats on being ahead on your yearly reading goal! I'm about a dozen books behind, even after adjusting my goal. Seem to be in a reading rut, but slowly working my way out! How nice that your mother will be spending winters with you! My mother-in-law lived with us for a few years and I think that the most important advice I can offer is to respect each other's privacy and give each other plenty of space. Good luck!

  2. Seems like a good month--loved the sorbet post! I don't have any experience in that other area, but certainly hope all goes well with your mom and you are able to enjoy this time together.

  3. After I lost my mother-in-law, I realised that it is always good to have an elderly person living with you. Have a great time with your mom.

  6. Sheesh, where do you find the time for all of this?!
    I think it's so sweet to have your elderly mom move in with you. I'm a volunteer for hospice and I know too many poor people who hate the nursing homes but have to live there because their family won't take them it. I say, you lived with your mother for at least eighteen years, can't you let her live with you for a fraction of that time so that she's comfortable at the end of her life? I think some people just don't understand.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation. Check out the site for more information on nutrients that help to safeguard th…

So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new? Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.
