I meant to post this yesterday, but thinks got out of control. Sorry about that. The winner for next time around is . . .
Julie Czerneda‘s A Turn of Light.
I’m looking forward to it. There are talking toads. This harkens back to the sense of wonder fantasy that I have always loved and we don’t see that much of anymore. Spread the word and invite anybody who wants to, to join us. Our next discussion day is April 13th. Mark it on your calendars!
I also crossed the halfway threshold on my weight lost. It’s take me almost 2 years to get here. But at least it’s coming off and so far, staying off. I actually want to lose/need to lose more than my goal weight, but I figured an initial goal weight that wasn’t screaming terrifying. Just . . . terrifying. At least I’ve made it halfway. I’m right now managing to lose at the rate of about 1.5 lbs per month, give or take. As the weather improves, that might improve since I can actually get outside and walk more, as opposed to using the elliptical.
Thanks to everyone on the good wishes regarding my uncle. I very much appreciate it.
