Sunday. It has been A WEEK. Emphasis on that. I have had great meet ups with friends, a bit of work at the library… and quite a bit of time to be at home and just work on breathing.
Friday marked 5 months without Justin. It is crazy how those anniversaries bring up so much pain and emotion. I knew going in that it would be a hard day and tried to plan for some little “to do’s to keep myself somewhat busy. The night before, these videos were sent to me from Honduras.
This was funds that were sent to Honduras in honor of Justin from friends and family and his co-workers. This is what those funds have done. This hitting right at the 5 month mark as you can imagine, brought tears of happiness, as well as deep pain as once again I try to contemplate this enormous loss to our family. Breathing in and out? Seriously… some days it is hard to do.
In bookish news, books did come in the house this week which I love. A house is not a home without books.
The Invincible s by Cecilia Galante (looking forward to it!)
The Game Master by Ian Copsey (looks fun)
The Hummingbird by Stephen Kiernan (This one is going to be something. I have a feeling.)
Amazing Peace by Maya Angelou (I am excited about this book that came with a cd of it read by the author!)
Jackrabbit McCabe and The Electric Telegraph by Lucy Margaret Rozier (Fun! and knowledge!)
Mirandy and Brother Wind by Patricia C McKissack (beautiful!)
Lots of good children s reads this week!
So my day is consisting of coffee… and cleaning up the book room, and organizing, and laundry, and mowing, and starting the canning process of all the apples in the yard AND hopefully a little reading. Two things coming up I will be talking about soon – Banned Book Week is the end of this month and yes I am hosting again and will have the post up this week to start your planning and sign ups AND next Sunday I am bringing back It’s Monday What Are You Reading.
Slowly… working my way back.
Have a happy Sunday all.
