The books we think we ought to read are poky, dull and dry;
The books that we would like to read we are ashamed to buy:
The books that people talk about we never can recall:
And the books that people give to us, oh, they’re the worst of all.

Not reading much. My little 12 hour a week job just became a 32+ hour a week job. The + means they can call me in. Some days are still 4 your days, but others are 9 or 10 hour days and sometimes I get off at 10P and have to be back at 10A. The joys of working retail during the holiday. It wouldn't be so bad if tempers didn't flair and people some how think if they hold the line up to call a manager to find out why the line isn't moving faster, it will move faster.

Please don't shop Thanksgiving or black Friday. Maybe that will stop the insanity. My family would like Grandma to enjoy the holidays.

I'm reading a good book by Nicholas Sparks called The Last Song. My late husband's cousin told me about it. My sister and mother also read it. I finished the book, I highly recommend it.!

80 and sunny at 8 this morning. 60 and raining at noon. As for this weekend, I had the crud. Not that weekends mean much to me. I'm Simi retired and work a couple days a week and never know what days I'm working. We are only closed 1 day a year.

Thanks for posting this article. I totally agree that the medical community is a long way from understanding obesity. Another point I agree with but have never seen in print is that your body tries to return to it's former weight. My weight 13 years ago was 307 (now 232). I knew trying to diet again was pointless, after all I started "dieting" at 12. I began making small improvements and I learned that after 15 lbs or so I had to stop and just try to maintain where I was because my body wanted to go back to the higher weight. I also needed to just maintain during stressful periods or months when I was traveling for work. Eventually the lower weight would begin to feel normal and then I could cut down again. Until then, there was no point trying to lose more. I know this is true for me but I've never read or heard anyone else say this.

There are some things in the article that I'm not sure about. Primarily the issue of obesity and health, particularly the remark about diabetes.

I do not read a lot from HuffPost, but this is a very interesting article It is not a fun article, but it has some very valid points. We are all, in some way dealing with a weight issue. What do you think? (note - it is fairly long)

FAIRY TALE READERS:

You might enjoy The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. She has only written two books so far and I'll be first in line with my hand out for number three. This book takes place in the current time but is the retelling of an old Russian fairy tale in novel form with contemporary characters. Ivey is Alaskan and is of native Alaskan heritage, there are little bits of magical realism in her books which I think she does really well.

You can find a better explanation of The Snow Child online!

Building sand castles with the little ones brings back such fun memories at the beach. I miss that. I cannot go into the water now due to my balance since I'm disabled.

My neck is feeling better, so I was finally able to resume my exercises.

Mary Alice, I love reading fairy tales. One of my favorite authors, Alice Hoffman, wrote a book with her cousin. Alice wrote the stories and her cousin designed knitting patterns to go with each one. Two of my passions in one book.

MaryAlice, sounds like your mother is doing it for the exercise. That is amazing to be able to carry 10 books like she was doing. At least during the bad weather she knows not to go out in it. We were amazed my 94 year old mother took to it so well. I think because she can read so much better by enlarging the font.

My 86 year old mother was walking with a backpack to the library, 1.5 miles away, getting the 10 books she needs for the week, putting them in her backpack and walking home. Then a week later packing her books and walking back to the library to get 10 new books. We told her it was one thing to walk the 3 miles, but another to haul the books back and forth. We wanted her to get an e reader, but she said no she was going to support the library. We told her she could download books from the library. After confirming this with the library, she let us get there an e reader. Now she packs her e reader to the library every Sat, downloads her books and packs it home. We have shown her how she can download the books without going to the library, but she said no. I have learned that when they had a spell of icy weather she did download from her computer. So at least she knows she can download from the computer during times of bad weather and the walk is good for her during nice weather.

MaryAlice, We bought my mom and IPAD to read on. She is 94 years old & seems to like it. She has trouble seeing so it works out well for her since you can enlarge the font.

My Chiropractor suggested not having a heavy purse also. Since I now have small purses I have noticed how much better I feel. I tried to tell my sister she needs to lighten up her purses. She has problems with neck, back and shoulder pain. I know a lot of it is carrying the heavy purse.

I swore I would never have an e reader, then I had a car accident and the Dr said my purse had to weigh less then 3 pounds, so books are out, e reader in. Then publishers decided that letters needs to get smaller. So e reader at home too. Then I discovered free books. Except for comparative religion I haven't bought a book in years.

Looks like I ll be pushing my Harlan Coben aside for a bit. I downloaded my Libby app from the library and one of my holds is finally here. I downloaded it on my IPAD. Really weird to read on it but the newest and latest are available electronically and not at the library. Funny how fast everything is changing.
Air quality in Southern ORegon is pretty bad and the heat is WOW! Praying we get some rain and our firemen can take some much needed breaks. Happy Reading

I spent the day reading yesterday since I've been trying to get over this sinus infection. Luckily, the book was really good. It was one I had dowloaded to my IPAD. It is a cute cozy mystery.
Hoping to be able to resume some exercising today. I know I'll have to start back slow.

Good morning! Happy 4th of July! Stay cool!

MaryAlice, those are lots of good ideas to stay cool. I hope people are also aware of how the heat effects our pets too. My dog is in foster care, hoping they do not leave him out too long. I'm sure he'll be fine, they do take good care of him.
