What the girl's been up to . . .

 If you read my last post you'll know Annabelle and I are home alone.

I, in jest, muttered about "what's a girl to do while DH is out of town."

Those who know me know I've never had any difficulty entertaining myself.

Perhaps that comes from growing up as an only child.  Or being a bit of an introvert.  Or simply being content with my own company.  

I know some people need a good bit of socializing to keep them happy.  I know some people who think staying home alone is boring beyond words.  And some people just need to be out and about and doing stuff.

My lifestyle of happily being at home, sometimes, for several days at a time, seems weird to some.  Oh, well.  To each his own.

When the urge or need hits, believe me, i will get up, go out, and do stuff.

In the meantime, Annabelle and I are fine fine fine.  She has, by the way, started speaking to me again.  We're pals.  She is sticking pretty close.  ❤

We chat with Donald a couple times a day and things are going well with the move.

I did order a bag of scrap fabric from amazon, and pulled out all the other items needed to make my own version of the scarf I mentioned in my last post.

While waiting for the fabric to arrive I've done a little bit of cooking (thank you, Greg Herren for that Sloppy Joe recipe!  The BEST!). 

I've read a couple of VERY good books, and watched a couple of movies.

Books have let me down this year.  Some that sounded good didn't hold my interest.   Some I was looking forward to disappointed.


Thanks to I did read two that I loved.  Started and could not put down (I love being retired).

Want to hear what they were?

Neither have been released yet but you can pre-order them.

Check 'em out!!!

Next up is . . .

Movies I've (re)watched are Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, Practical Magic, and Midnight in Paris.

And, that, my friends, is what's happening in Meat Camp, North Carolina.

Life is good.

I love being home alone. I can read all I want and not have to cook if I don't want to (well, truth be told I haven't been cooking much these days).

I'm so looking forward to Hank's new book, and I had wondered about the Lisa Unger one. I'm adding that to my list. I'd like to hear what you think about the John Grisham. I haven't read him for quite a while.

I'm finishing up Allen Eskens' latest book, Forsaken Country, and I love it. I am a big fan of Allen's books. He always gives readers a great story. I have the rest of my year's dance card filled for books to read and review. Up next is Louise Penny's new one.

I've caught up with Doc Martin on TV. Season ten is out and adding episodes. I watched The Watcher and liked it. I caught up with the Great British Baking Show tonight, and I want to start watching The Magpie Murders.

Give sweet Annabelle a pat on the head from me.

Annabelle sends sloppy puppy kisses back your way, Kathy!
