Reading the Signs . . .
This continues to be a tough week, my cyber-mailbox filling constantly with e-mail from my siblings as they ease my mother into palliative care in her condo. I am not yet well enough to be helpful there on the weekend and not wanting to risk sharing the virus. But we've put our names down for the following weekend on the Shared Google Calendar by brother-in-law set up for Granny Care, and I try to phone Mom through the week -- she manages to sound surprisingly upbeat and very, very appreciative.
Meanwhile, although I stayed home Monday for one more day of healing sleep, I've been back at work since, and that's taking all my energy. Writing posts is rather beyond me at the moment, so I'm going to cheat today, if you'll excuse me. Instead of writing a proper post here, may I direct you to my 2012 Reading List which I posted on my reading blog yesterday (and yes, that explains the bookstore photos!). I should also mention that if you're interested in what people are reading, you should check out the marvelous conversation Duchesse got going the other day.
Anyway, there's my sneaky non-post for the day. Hope your day is a good one. . .
