NYC only had a few snow flurries this week, no real accumulations of snow. Finally! In the middle of the week we had a couple of days/nights of bad ice but compared to places like Chicago and Kansas, where friends of mine coped with some awful weather, ours was mild in comparison. What a winter, though! I haven't ventured out much at all since my wheelchair won't get too far in the snow and ice. But tomorrow I have a doctor appointment in Manhattan. I'm looking forward to going because I downloaded the first couple of discs of When Will There Be Good News by Kate Atkinson and I'm really looking forward to listening too it. I hope I enjoy listening to books on tape because I have a few other audiobooks and it could be a fun, alternative way to read a book! It will also make it easier to cope with doctor appointments, tests and similar things that I cannot avoid.
The cats are well. Another cold passed from cat to cat for a while but seems to finally be gone. Gustav (aka Gus) (the cat who was mistakenly named Ophelia for a while until a vet's visit determined he is a boy not a girl!) was very sick with a cold for over a week. He stayed in the basement and stopped eating for a few days. I was about to take him to the vet when he popped upstairs and ate hungrily. What a relief!
I finished House Arrest a wonderful book by Ellen Meeropol and will review it soon. I started reading another book I'm reviewing for TLC Book Tours, Born Under A Lucky Moon by Dana Precious, it's her debut and I'm enjoying it. I've also just started The History of Love by Nicole Krauss which I've wanted to read for a long time and am very excited about. I'm almost finished with The Widow's Story by Joyce Carol Oates. I've been reading this book slowly, it's poignant, fascinating and even occasionally funny. I'm going to try to read at least one book for Lenore's Dystopian February at her blog, Presenting Lenore. I've been meaning to read Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell for a while, this seems as good a time as any! There are too many great books to read, yay!
Enjoy your Sunday!
