Fri night 4/27

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

Although I am no longer a student or teacher, I still enjoy the feeling of freedom on Friday night. It has been a busy week for me with early rising every day—but tomorrow no alarm and lingering over coffee and paper.
tonight I had a favorite dinner, chicken and dumplings, and lemon pie to boot with two special friends, Carolyn and daughter, Ann from Atlanta. We sat on her back patio in the pleasant early evening and declared that life is beautiful. You might suspect that we also had a few beverages.
Plans for tomorrow are working in my small yard and putting plants that I bought today into pots for patio. My thumb is any shade but green so I need encouragement. Enjoy the weekend and hope you are into a good book. I just finished The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Korsova—highly recommend this masterpiece. I am determined to keep blog rolling, especially since I have added four hits since last time.

Seven readers have checked in since I last wrote. I am a happy blogger and promise to continue writing often. This has been a busy & exciting week for me. Tuesday I attended Silverfish Book club. One of the very best I have been privileged to share my books. They had read Cotton in Augusta, great & discerning discussion. I relished hearing every word. Lovely lunch—honoring Myra—with fried chicken and pound cake–table decorated with cotton. I was sorry to leave these welcoming friends of Myra. Hope to have honor of sharing the later books.
Thursday I attended a United Ministries sponsored “Transforming LivesTogether” luncheon and was head a presentation by Kathryn Edin author of “Living on $2.00 a Day” Very inspiring and especially so to see the banquet room of the Hyatt filled with folks who are making a difference. Proud to be at table with St Peter’s. Today is birthday of my fantastic granddaughter who is also making a difference to many lives. Happy Grandmother.
I just read a quote regarding cats: “You can’t change the lives of all cats—but can make a difference in the life of the one you own.” I feel this works for everything. You can’t do it all, but you can do something.” My sermon of the day.
Now I sign off to visit Fiction Addiction and take additional copies of Cotton in Augusta. Love to get the message from Jill—“Sold out–Need More”.
Keep in touch. Myra needs your support. Shirley

Lovely Saturday to do home chores, a little shopping and write column for Forest Blade. Yesterday I visited mu 92 year old friend, Melvie in assisted living home in the heart of rural South GA.
After being lost for an hour, stopping at small (very small) post office to ask for directions, finally found the place. Happy to see her, but she is homesick. Betty Davis said it right that “Old age is not for sissies.”
Looking forward to book club on Tues. .
Enjoy your weekend and maybe start a good book.

I am so happy to be able to post on blog again. I am afraid that I have lost all of you but I  hope you will return. We have much catch up to do. In case you haven’t heard, Book IV is on the market and being read by many of Myra’s friends. The title is MYRA–the girl–the woman–the Legend. You have met the girl and the woman,, but the legend tells you even more. Hope you will read and enjoy.
Silver Fish Book club next week, and I am very excited.
I will be looking for your hits and replies. Shirley
