Enthusiasm Makes the Difference

Monday, Aug 01

And after a rough 5 days, allergies, that bum knee, etc., I find that I have plenty of enthusiasm.  I’m  SO eager to get back to the book!

Over the weekend, I listened to a book I’ve been avoiding–“The Art of Racing in the Rain”, by Garth Stein.  Why would I, the consummate animal lover, avoid a book told from the perspective of a golden retriever?  Well, because I’m still getting over “Marley & Me”, which was one of the best books ever, but it tore me up emotionally.  Still, Matt and Shirley Alling recommended the book so highly that I finally decided to give it a try.  And it was wonderful–joy and heartbreak and all.  I fell in love with Enzo the dog and his ‘dad’, Denny.  The story was enthralling and well told–I just had to know how things were going to turn out for Enzo and the crew.

I also did some art work, and made runs to Hobby Lobby and the grocery store on Saturday.  That was about all the adventure I had energy for, and I wanted to be ready to write this morning.  Which I am!


And that’s the news for Monday.
