Read, Write, Rest, or Cook

I’ve had a busy last few days… I’ve extroverted way too much… you introverts out there know what I mean…so I am grateful for a quiet day… one where I don’t need to leave home… a day to recharge my batteries… so that I can extrovert again… when need be… which will probably be tomorrow…

While we have a day at home… Bertha… has recommended that I do the… Three R’s… I learned from Mrs. Wallace… my favorite Kindergarten teacher… now… they are probably a little different that the ones you are acquainted with as no math is involved… these go like this… read… write… rest…

So… I’ve done some of all three today… and… I added one of my own… cook… which doesn’t fit into the alliteration…but there is something about preparing good food… and then eating it… of course… that is grounding… especially when that food included… homemade mac and cheese… with a pork chop and some greens… a meal that made doing the dishes worthwhile… and… no… Bertha… did not help with the dishes… but she made good smacking noises as she cleaned her plate…

Basically… Bertha… says you don’t have to… read… write… rest… or… cook… it can be any activity which helps you to recuperate and reground… just be sure you make time for it… somewhere in your busy schedule…

Why not pick up a copy of the Bertha books for yourself or someone you love. Just click her name and she’ll whisk you away to Amazon faster than my kittens jump in my lap when I start to eat.

 

Romancing the Kindle…

Bertha…has been bugging me this weekend…something to the effect of…it’s spring…love is in the air…why am I sitting at home…alone…washing clothes and cooking Brussels sprouts…

I’ve tried to explain to her that my clothes are dirty…and…I happen to like Brussels sprouts…

Of course…we all know that flimsy attempt at the truth…was nowhere near enough to deter…Bertha…when she’s on a mission to disrupt the status quo of my life in some way…

So…she continued…saying…I need a little bit of romance in my life…

Well…I can’t say I disagree with her…but…I defend myself…there’s no one to have a little romance with…hello…it still takes two to tango…but only one to eat Brussels sprouts

Even that didn’t stop her…as she handed me my Kindle…with…Take 2…by Linda Bolton…already opened and ready to read…

Ahhh…a little romance novel…now why didn’t I think of that…

She goes on to say that…Take 2…is the perfect book for me to start with…because Alex…the heroine…who is just your average over forty woman…is…someone I could relate to…the coolest part is…the hero…is a hunky movie star…who has grown tired of…fake relationships…and wants a…real woman…in his life…

And as good as that sounds…the best part is…Take 2…is only…$3.99…how’s that for a cheap date…

I have to admit the premise of the book is intriguing…and the price is definitely right…even on my budget…besides…Bertha’s…right…I can use a little romance in my life right now…

Hmmm…if…I am what I read…then…maybe…just maybe…
