Life has been slightly chaotic around here for a few weeks and I haven't had much time to read. I'm slowly getting through a biography of General Braxton Bragg which is good and very well written, but it's long and has small print. Also coming up is Mr. Kill by Martin Limon and then Lillian Lorraine by Nils Hanson which is the story of a Ziegfield Follies girl.
Of course there are also my stacks and stacks of TBR books. I'm looking forward to getting to the next Peri O'Shaughnessy. I also have a big pile of fat books that I seem to put off in favor of shorter ones, even though I got those books because I definitely wanted to read them. Oh for more time to read.
We are adjusting slowly to my husband's retirement. In this cold weather he is staying indoors a lot so he's bored. When warm weather comes, he'll be busier but now all he does he threaten to move south. I have never wanted to have one house up here and another in the south, and I surely don't want to pay for two houses, so we aren't leaving here until we finish our remodeling and sell this place.
Meanwhile, our basketball season has its ups and downs: ups for women and downs for men. We have a very young men's team and they just keep losing. I have patience with them, but everyone else is complaining bitterly. It's still fun to go to the games though. Monday our opponent for a double header was Univ. of Maine where our great-niece plays basketball. Believe it or not, we had never met her so it was great to see her play and finally meet her. She's a beautiful young woman - no prejudice of course.
I really will have book reviews up soon. I've just started another mystery on my Kindle as well. Keep your fingers crossed that I'll arrange my time so I can read more.
