Observing October

October 22 –

My sister would have been 74 today.  She and I were the most alike of the four of us girls.  I’m sorry I didn’t spend more time with her.  She was 12 years older than I so until I was an adult we didn’t hang out much, although I did babysit her two kids a lot.

She’s been gone fourteen years now, but I still miss her a lot.

In other news, I finally finished the book “A Thousand Days,” about John F. Kennedy’s days in office.  It was very interesting, especially in this heated election year.

My next book is going to be:

I’m counting this for my “The first book you see in a bookstore” category because I got an email from Barnes and Noble and this was the book that was pictured.  They were having a special so I got this and two others.  I have heard of this book before from several other people and am looking forward to reading it.  I am thinking it won’t take quite as long as the last one, since it only has 179 pages, as opposed to over 1000.

Since this is only book nine in my challenge, I’m probably not going to beat my last year’s number of 17, but I’m still reading, which is the point.  How about you?  How far ahead of me are you?  Go ahead tell me, I can take it.

  1. Aww, she was adorable, and so were you! So sorry she can’t be with you, but it looks like you have some great childhood memories with her.



  2. Such a special way to remember your sister with those pictures. You will love the Alchemist. Paolo Coelho’s storytelling is poignant. He is one of my favorite authors.


Love to hear from you!
