Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Trip to the Library

I returned:
Hooked on Murder (unread)
cozy mystery, crochet group, bookstore, thought it would be perfect. Nope. This is one I had purchased and returned because I couldn't stand the main character. Still couldn't. Maybe it was my mood, maybe it was comparing it to other cozy mystery/yarn books. I don't know but I've got too many other books to read to take the time on this one.

After Etan reviewed
Death by Cashmere reviewed

I picked up:
Thai Die
The Magical Christmas Cat

I still have:
The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club
I may give up on this one, if I do, I'll let you know why

Ready for me to pick up:
Step by Step
Desperate Passages

I purchased from Friends of the Library:
Ride a Painted Pony by Kathleen Eagle
I've read other books by her and the back sounded interesting

Earthseed by Pamela Sargent
Sounds like a futuristic Lord of the Flies

The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark & Carol Higgins Clark
I may have this one but I'm not sure
