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.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
