Odds and Ends

I'm loving my new Kindle!  I've read several books on it already and I can't believe the variety of books and price ranges from which you can make your selections!

I had a great Mother's Day; I had breakfast with son Jason and his fiance, and later in the day attended a grandson's soccer game, followed by a BBQ at Eric's.....he makes awesome pulled pork sandwiches!!

A great big thank you to Boom Boom Larough (I hope I remembered how to spell that!) for being the first person to buy my latest book "Welcome to Singles Night!"  (Remember, I'm saving money to attend Jason's "destination wedding" in Jamaica in May 2013!)

Tuesdays and Thursdays are Chamber of Horrors Days.  From 10:30 to 1130 a.m.  I work on my "abs of flab"!  I may be in pain  as you are reading this.

Filed an application for senior housing last week.  Mr. Eva and I are on the waiting list for several facilities that have no stairs, and places where the driveways are cleared of ice in the winter so I won't have a repeat of last February's "I've fallen and I can't get up."  Wish us would be wonderful to get there before the first snow storm of the winter.

I am suffering from "ring around the neck."  The sun was shining on my right side at the soccer game on Sunday, and now I have this pink half-circle from the center of my throat to the center of the nape of my neck; once it turns tan, I'll look like I forgot to bathe! 

That's it for odds and ends, folks!  Hope you're having a good day.

Today IS a great day. I hope it isn't long before you can move someplace without stairs where you don't need to shovel snow, which is such a hassle, not that I've had to do it that often.

Congrats on your new eBook! And I have my finger and toes crossed for you on the new digs. Our apartment is 18 big stairs up, and my back and knees are worse than ever, so I would give anything to move where there's no stairs. Hopefully, someday!
Have a great week Eva!

Hope everything works out for you, the senior housing, the sale of your new book, the wedding destination...
You're on a good luck roll!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I too am addicted to my kindle. I carry it in my purse so I have something to read while I'm waiting for a kid or two. I'm ALWAYS waiting for a kid somewhere.

I absolutely LOVE my Kindle, too.

I think I have an entry for the Chamber of Horrors back at my place.
Good luck on your housing. Getting some of that is a dream I have.

I hope you get accepted for senior housing soon. That would be great!
