In full trill -

Last night I read the book, "I'd Rather Do Chemo That Clean Out the Garage" by Fran Di Giacomo. I was very disappointed in this book, which was billed as hilarious, "Choosing Laughter over Tears," and "Outrageously Witty." I found it repulsive. Luckily with print the size of Nebraska, it was soon over. Maybe the point was that chemo would seem easier after enduring the dull, pain-staking "wit" of this book. Hopefully no nurse I will encounter can insert the needle any more slowly and painfully into my vein.

The good news for her is that she has found a way to help pay her medical bills, as Amazon directed me right to her book when I ordered an excellent cookbook that I highly recommend, "One Bite at a Time." It is by Rebecca Katz with Marsha Tomassi and Mat Edelson, and consists of "nourishing recipes for people with cancer, survivors, and their caregivers." I think it is for everyone.

I am finally back to reading, so read "In the Company of Joyful Ladies" by Alexander McCall Smith this morning. Now, that is a book to enjoy with a cat on your lap and coffee at hand and friendly people close by.

I am enjoying my lazy, fulfilling start to this Sunday morning. May you be doing the same.

In gratitude to the coziness of November,
