About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scribble and Scrambles - Books, Books, More Books

Ane blogged the top five reasons that she knows she has too many books on her to-be-read list...

Here are mine:

5) My cats lay on my books just to get a little attention and affection.

4) I have to take a running leap to clear the stack of books near my bed.

3) The puffy gold packages on my doorstep or in my mailbox induce a blend of guilt, excitement and weariness.

2) I have books in random stages of reading in my purse, on my bedside stand, in the kitchen, living room and bathroom so that I can catch a few paragraphs while stirring, waiting or winding down.

1) I wake up with random words "tattooed" on my forehead or cheek.

But, I must say, reading is a passion, pleasure and blessing. So, as long as they keep a coming, I'll keep on a reading.

you have books in your purse? Seriously? Wow. I feel so unread...
I'm still midway through that book you recommended. You know, with the love triangle; whatever it's name is...I love that book.

have I gotten to the infuriating part? Well...there are no wedding bells yet (don't want to spoil it for anyone) if that tells you anything. I'm a slow read, though I think about reading frequently, it just doesn't seem to happen. I like to read a good three chapters at a time. I think that's my problem.
