I am a voracious reader. I like to think my tastes are ecclectic. I also love to sew/quilt. I home school my daughter, and I buy and sell on E-bay occasionally.

    “That is very good,” said Phuti. “I am looking forward to it already.” But he was not—he was merely being supportive, as any good husband should be when his wife insists on embarking on something that he feels is not a good idea and he knows that it is far too late to express reservations. That is the point at which wholehearted support is required, and he would give it.
    Note: A good lesson for husbands lol

  • Amazon shared from My American Unhappiness by Dean Bakopoulos
    Some mornings you simply have no desire to make conversation. You long for a reflective stroll, in which you amble along the sidewalk, gazing here and there at one of the city’s lakes. Still, you see people you know everywhere—neighbors, baristas, colleagues from the university, past grant recipients, and potential grant applicants. It is difficult to see so many people you know, so many busy and active people, if, frankly, you don’t care how somebody’s novel, thesis, art, job, marriage, life is going, not because you are heartless or cruel, but because you simply don’t have the energy...
