  5. The Almost Sisters is on my list...and I guess I'll have to savor the anticipation a little more, if it doesn't come out for a while...sigh.

    I've been sick this weekend, too; I don't often get sick, so I was stunned to find that I actually have a cold. A normal thing that people get, but since I stopped working with children (ten years ago!), I haven't had one.

    My coping skills need work...LOL. Feel better!

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. Oh yes...when I was teaching, I always had a cold or strep throat especially when I went from the high school to the elementary schools.

      I still don't feel good, but I am a bit better.

      You will LOVE The Almost Sisters.

      I hope you feel better too.

      Thanks for stopping, Laurel.

  9. Hi Elizabeth,

    Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling yourself and I hope that you are on the mend.

    There have been some rather nasty bugs and virus's going around over here, which are taking forever to recover from.

    So far (touch wood), I have managed to stay clear of them and hubbie's cold, was just that, thankfully.

    Hope you feel a bit more like getting stuck into a good book very soon :)
