Oooo my gosh! I just was reading email and Jan Karon is releasing another Father Tim book.
I'm out of my mind with joy. I'm not as religious as some of my friends, but these books are superb. I am a better person after I read one of them. I even read the cookbook. I'm gonna make that cake one of these days. I'll have all sorts of test strips and insulin around and my husband to watch me to make sure, but it sounds so good.
My arm is getting better and the orthopedist has released me to work out at the hospital rehab place. I'll miss having my personal trainer at home so nobody could see me flub up and get so frustrated. He was the first real live person from Ethiopia I've ever met. He's been here for 20 years and we swapped stories to keep our minds off the exercises.
We went down to Hico today to see how they are bringing the town back to life. It was a fun trip and we only nearly strangled each other a few times. The town is coming back to life and that is a good thing to see. There are a lot of classy goods in some of the stores....there are some iron gates from New York that are fabulous! There will be an entire shop of antique architectural items out in a courtyard to look at, but it was too hot today for that kind of foolishness. Inside there were many goodies from church lanterns to very upscale bedding. The building reminded me of the church where we met Bossy, but this building was an old granary. At least the chute where the grain came down from the floor above looked like that.
