Life still travels its hectic path..

I know when people retire they say they don't know how they had time to work. I never believed that. Now I do. It is past ridiculous.  Our sister who was here for a month went home and things are still as busy.

First off we have a very old dog who keeps throwing up health issues. Wally is making us go even grayer than we normally are. It is very hard when you know your beloved dog is going to pass on. He is pretty good now so fingers crossed for more time. The needs of the other 2 cats and 2 dogs we have continue. We love all that involves but it is busy.

I am reading a Michael Connelly book now. When harried I turn to crime.

I also have just signed up for a journaling class short course online through Monash University. It runs for 6 weeks with two assignments a week, some quizzes and a final exam at the end.

Then we won't talk about all the food and drink we had when the family got together. I now have a choice between a whole new wardrobe or the 30 minutes exercise program every day.

I must say I am well and truly tired of the TBR challenge. I have a few new books I am wanting to read but then I guess 1 April is not that far away.

We are having the last of summer days here and the weather is lovely lately. A few motorbike rides have been the norm.

During May we have a 6 week holiday coming up but more on that later. Getting everything booked for that is finally over and I am ready to take off now.

I am always amazed at how some of my blogging friends manage to read so much and then write so much about their books. I keep thinking our winter is around the corner and once our holiday is over I will have lots of time beginning 1 July. We'll see. I hope all of you are doing well.


  1. spring hits with a bang here in oregon. carrying bags of compost, large ceramic pots, trees and assorted objet d'art(sp.) i pulled a muscle in my shoulder. that along some whimpering got me out some of the work. still try to find time to read, tho. into a heron carvic Miss Seeton mystery. i always get a kick out of her madcappery.

    1. I have not heard of Miss Seeton mysteries. I must look out for them. Enjoy your spring even with all the work.

  2. I hope the Wally situation improves for you - it's terribly hard when this time comes. I did laugh at your "When harried I turn to crime" - so true.

  3. Thank you for your concern re Wally. He He is going to be 15 in October so he is well and truly slowing down. I need some quiet time to read more. It always makes me feel better.

  4. I'm sorry to hear about Wally & I know how difficult this stage in a pet's life can be. I also know what you mean about life being busy. Work looks like being incredibly busy & stressful for the next six months or so & I know I'll need lots of comforting books to see me through - as well as lots of time with Lucky & Phoebe so I can destress.


I love comments. I promise to try very hard to reply to any message left.
