I’ve added L-Glutamine to my vitamin regime. It’s great for digestion. I noticed a difference day 1. Sluggy tummy no more!
I’ve been in a vintage-y decor mood recently. While garage sales are few and far between, Sr. Elizondo and I passed by one and a candelabra caught my eye. We left with a set of candelabras and a large peacock painting.
I finished the book Wise Blood. The story of a young man who is grappling with his faith in God and inadvertently becomes a preacher of a God-less religion. He meets a man with ‘wise blood” and other characters that symbolically represent his struggles.
Another wedding, another dress needed. I bought this one from NordyRack and it’s perfect for Cancun.
The best of the best, unexpected roses from Sr. Elizondo. My favorite is to break them up into multiple mini bouquets for around the house.
I loved “How to be Parisian”, but their new book, “Older, but Better, but Older” wasn’t as appealing.
Maybe it’s because I am older and I’m already aware of a lot of what is in the book, but I was really bored reading this. To be honest, I skipped through a few pages. (I think I was hoping for more tips to aging gracefully.) I will say I did find myself giggling in some parts and a lot of it is spot on to getting older.
I lied before. I thought I had already read my last book of the year, but then I picked this one up and read it in 3 days.
This book is a memoir of a young married couple in the Bay Area. The husband/author takes you on their journey of meeting in college, getting married, to then dealing with the unexpected onset of mental illness.
This memoir reeks of honesty as he muddles his way through how to deal with his wife’s mental breakdown and how they re-piece their relationship back together.
It’s an easily identifiable book for anybody that has taken care of a loved one through illness.
I haven’t read Bukowski since my 20’s. I wasn’t sure if he would still appeal to me. It turns out I will forever love him. Simple sentences perfectly written of his gritty, drunken, day to day life. Genius!
This French book was an overnight success when written and is still an iconic book. The writer was only 18 years old when she wrote it.
Seventeen year old Cecile is staying with her handsome bachelor father in the French Riviera for the summer. She is used to seeing her father with many women, but then he decides to get married. Cecile begins to have conflicting emotions and the devious planning begins as well.
