Sunday Musings

It has been a crazy weather weekend in Boston. Friday night around 3:30 am, a huge thunderstorm came through the area.  The lightening and the thunder were instantaneous so it was very close. It sort of freaked me out a bit.  We have had tornado warnings in the area because conditions are favorable for tornados.  That is crazy for Boston.

Boots has been sick too. He has had loose stools and has been having them in inappropriate places. Time to call the vets office in the morning.  I will have to take time off of work to take him. Poor Boots :( He is not acting sick though this has been happening for a few days.

I have been totally sucked into the Outlander book series by Diana Gabaldon. I am currently reading the second book, Dragon Fly in Amber. A friend, who I knit and play trivia with on Thursday nights, talked about it and I got the first book from the library. I have bought the next 6 books and will get the 7th when it is released in paperback. 

Now, Jamie, I would totally dig.  I have dated a number of Irish guys and their accent does not fool me any longer but the Scottish accent, puts me in a trance. Desmond, of LOST, put me in a trance. Then there is Gerard Butler. A girl can dream.

Have you read any good books lately? I am always looking for good reads that I can escape to.

Today was also Not So Secret Sister’s 32nd birthday.  I took her to breakfast at OB’s on Billings Street in Quincy.  She got a free breakfast there and then tonight, we took her to the Abington Ale House for her free dinner with Dad, Jimmy and a good friend of NSS sister.  She was lamenting over turning 32.  My Dad commented that turning 62 was worse. His birthday is next month.

I haven’t really felt good about myself this weekend.  I am feeling ugly. I look at myself in the mirror and say things that I should not. Will this ever truly get better? I don’t seem to win this self esteem battle.  I am not really down just kind of there. I want to hide under the covers, which is my cool new Liberty of London comforter I bought in Louisville.

Dad talked about going to Ireland tonight at dinner.  He would pay for it.  I would totally go!


  1. Re: self-esteem, as my therapist always says, fake it until you make it! Seriously, it can't hurt to tell yourself that you love you, even if you don't really believe it. Start small "I love my eyes" or "I love my singing ability". Before you know it, you really will be liking yourself and believing in yourself!

    Books: Jhumpa Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth, Geneen Roth's Women, Food, and God and Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States (geeky but good). Liking them all so far!

    Have a great week!

  2. I have read Unaccustomed Earth. I loved her other books, especially The Namesake. Geneen's book I have on my hold list at the library. I love history so I will have to put Zinn's book on there too.



I love your comments!
