Happy Guy Day and how are we all?
The Death March in my small circle continues. My Great Uncle was promoted to Glory this afternoon after a long illness. He is now with his beautiful bride of many years as well as with family, including his parents – my Great Grand Parents, who I remember well and fondly, as well as 5 siblings who went on before. So, we didn’t lose him; we know exactly where he is. But we still grieve. He was a lovely man, a loving husband and father and a devoted minister to several flocks. He will be sorely missed.
In addition, one of my mom’s younger brothers is in a coma and has been for some days. He’s not expected to last much longer. Please keep my mom in your prayers. Between her two BFFs in the last 2 weeks, our Great Uncle – who she loved as blood – and now her brother, she’s pretty wore out.
Sir Guy promised to be nice to the little kiddies and hand out Halloween Candy. Apparently, he thinks snarling is smiling and as a result, we only had 4 brave souls.
Of course, the rain at sunset probably had a lot to do with the lack of treaters as well. Oh well. I’m going to do the smart thing and take the basket of treats to school and leave them in the office. Pray they are all gone by the end of the day. I don’t need it. I WANT it, but I don’t need it.
Zee was VERY productive in the reading department. As some might know, I purchased a new kindle a month ago and I’m now able to cart books around as I should. YAY! But I find myself in a bit of a predicament. Actually not really. Just a serious realization.
See, July, August and September were NOT stellar reading months. There was that little problem with THE MOVE FROM HELL and my kindle fire refusing to download anything. My old handheld won’t download anything from the internet, so I was kind of stuck with reading from my laptop. I have no clue how I managed before Spawn bought me a kindle, but it is what it is. There ya go how do you do?
So either or, I filled in some early spots this month and I’m looking at the last gameboard I’d downloaded.
I’m looking at this as recently as TWO days ago and thinking… you know, if I hunker down like a hairy dawg, I might be able to finish this. So I go to my master list to download the rest of everything and discover I have some entrees that aren’t on this game board. So I went BACK to the site where I downloaded the gameboard and challenge to begin with and found THIS…
14 books in 2 months, I can deal with. 24, not so much.
I”m not going to complete this challenge. Yes I know some things came down over the summer I had not factored in. It was not my intention to move this summer, but I did. And if that means I didn’t read like I should, then I didn’t read like I should. My blood pressure is down, I’m happier, for the most part. I have a robot vacuum that will turn on at 11 PM tonight and vacuum for 2 hours tonight and she – Rosie – is quiet about it. Life is good.
But I’m not going to complete this challenge. But I’m going to give what I can and I’m proud I got as much done as I did.
Reading behind the cut. Have a taste of Sir Guy!
