So lately my blog has become whiner central, and for that I apologize. I have had a rough couple of months and still am, but I will try to save those whiny moments for myself. I really do do other things. Lately I have been reading. In fact I just finished another book this week it was Unbroken, about a man and his life growing up and surviving some amazing experiences during WWII. His plane went down and he survived on a raft for 47 days with no food or water (except what he found and made work). I was fascinated, what a story of survival things only went on to get worse. Let me know if you would like to borrow, it is wonderful. I also finished a story a couple of weeks ago called I Am Asher Lev. This is a story of a Jewish boy and his struggle with his religion and his life. He was an artist and this brought so much pain and hurt to him and his family and his struggle with life. I am now reading a Newberry award winner called Moon over Manifest about a girl that is sent to a town in the middle of the depression while her dad is off working and her adventures of finding out about her dad and how he was as a child. When I finish that I am going to read a manuscript of a friend that want feed back on a young adult book they have been writing. So that should be interesting. I am hanging in there, hope you all are doing well!

As the big flakes of snow gently fall from the sky, I have been at peace. I think finally my meds are helping, but I was just diagnosed with a sinus infection, which means I can't take my meds until I have been cleared from infection for 3 wks. So I feel like we are starting over again. I try to get it to be two weeks, but I was given a stern talking to by the nurse. So just as I am beginning to feel better, it will all go away. I am OK with that. Because the snow is so beautiful and the quiet so complete, I am complete at least for now.
