I am blessed. Feeling stuffy and achy this week, I made a trip to the urgent care for a Covid-19 test. They tested me for the Covid virus, Flu, and Strep. They all came out negative and I was told it was an upper respiratory virus (cold?). But I had several things to do this week that included meeting people outside my home, and I wanted to be sure. In a couple of days, the stuffy/achiness disappeared, and I decided it was allergies after all.
My sister’s daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter have all tested positive for Covid-19 and are quarantining at home. I am praying for their family.
On Tuesday I met with the Enid Public Library’s teen authors and talked to them about publishing. I could talk about writing forever. And they were happy to have me.
Wednesday I had a doctor’s appointment with my neurosurgeon for a follow up on this summer’s surgery. He said things were proceeding well. The vertebrae are fusing as they should, and I am in less pain all the time.
I am reading my first steam-punk novel. I’ve seen Jules Vern’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Wild Wild West. I love fantasy and when you combine it with steam powered engines, it can be fun. So, I downloaded a copy of The Bloodless Assassin by Celine Jeanjean. It is a series and very imaginative. I love the way it moves and the quirky characters.
I’m feeling grateful for my health and praying for those who are sick. There are so many. I hope you are well and living your life to the fullest in spite of the pandemic.
What are you reading this week?
