I don't know what is going on. I've been in a "clean out" mode for the last week. Maybe it is that I was semi-confined last week with the bruises and stitches. Who knows? But, I started cleaning out papers and "stuff" that I will never use and have no idea why I still have those things.........
I realize it isn't winter yet. But, when it is cloudy, overcast, blustery and cold, my mind says "Winter".
It's a good time for reflection, cleaning out stuff and as the squirrels do, storing nuts for the winter's stillness. In my sorting through papers, I came across many lists of books I wanted to read. I've consolidated all those papers into one list. Quite a diverse group of interests. I think I'll order them, now in paperback, for the cloudy overcast days.
None of them are literary giants but just subjects or writers that I am interested in reading. Here are some of the titles. Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady. 20th Century Mexican Art published by the Naples Florida Museum of Art. Nature Girl by Carl Hiassen (love this author). Yard Art and Handmade Places. Avoiding Prison and Other Noble Vacation Goals. Last, but not least, Surreal Eden about Las Pozas in the Sierra Gorda. There are more, but I don't want to bore you with the entire list.
Reading all those, plus cooking, gardening and creating gifts for the holidays ought to keep me content inside on the cold blustery days.
